Children tend to memorize phenomena standing in proximity to their life experience. Mnemonic techniques make the process of remembering easier and increase the memory span in the form of extra associations.

Mnemonic methods are made up of tens of cognitive operations, owing to which the brain contact is set and some of its functions, like function of memorization, are taken into control.
