    A most inter­est­ing exer­cise, par­tic­u­larly as one is con­scious (aware) that the brain is strug­gling against what the eyes see and what the mouth wants to say. I enjoyed the exer­cise, but then again, being an edu­cated Eng­lish­man my brain always fas­ci­nates me.

    Well it was to say sec­ond time. I used a trick, I did not see the com­plete words while say­ing, I just con­cen­trate on the color of last alpha­bet of the word, did not look the whole word at all, in just sec­ond attmept the result was 100%..cool
