This study investigates student experiences of the experimental memory technique called the People Placing Method, which is a collection of adapted learning techniques. This study looks at the students’ experiences of using this experimental method, using an individual pscychological theoretical framework. The People Placing Method was taught to a group of Swedish foreign language students during spring 2013. Data was collected using two surveys, a diagnostic test and a series of interviews. The analysis showed that few students actually use the whole method after training and many students view the method as having a high initial threshold. Users, however, rated the technique as effective and users also gained a non-significant higher mean value on the diagnostic test. The study showed that students work in an adaptive way when learning new techniques, and that they use selected parts of the People Placing Method and sometimes combining these with digital support.
