Vladmimir Nabokov was known for giving great lectures at Cornell. Turns out he wrote them all out and memorized them. When he was sick he would send his wife in to read them verbatim. He pretty much refused all F2F interviews because he wanted to consider and write his responses. Re: language - Pimsleur method is more or less like this. It doesn't really attempt to "explain" the language, just forces you to listen and repeat. I found it very effective for learning Mandarin.
