How Can You Learn English Faster?
Many students who come to Distance Learning are very busy. They have jobs, families, and many responsibilities.
Are you busy? Is it difficult for you to learn English?
How can you learn English faster?
When we give time to something it gets bigger.
I know! You don't have time!
So how can you use your time in a good way to learn faster?
Here are some ideas that can help:
1. Use a notebook or binder
2. When you watch the DVD at home, write down new words or idioms that you learn. If you are confused about something, write down a question for your teacher.
3. When you meet with your teacher, write down what you learn. Corrections, new words, grammar information - write it down!
Why should you write everything down?
When we use our bodies we remember things better. We use our arms and hands to write. Using our arms and hands helps us remember.
4. Once a week, look at your notebook. Review the material.
Why should you review the material?
When we look at or use something again and again, we remember it better.
Do you remember tv commercials that you see over and over and over? Yes! You must study English like it is a tv commercial. Watch it over and over.
5. Think about how you learn. Do you learn by listening? By watching? By speaking? By reading? Everyone is different. Everyone has a best way. Talk to your teacher about how you learn. Ask your teacher for advice about learning English the best way for you.
Be smart. Use your time in a strong and good way to learn English faster.
