This is the text (if you need help).

Can you remember vocabulary easily? If not, help may be near. A study says anyone can remember things better if they train their brain. We can be a "memory athlete". Scientist Martin Dresler said six weeks of training can help us remember many things. He said people could train and enter the World Memory Championships.

Dr Dresler looked at brain scans of memory champions and "normal" people. He was surprised to see no differences. He decided we can all be memory athletes. He studied people who trained for 40 days using mnemonics. They more than doubled their memory. Mnemonics is an old method of helping people remember things.
