Discover How You Learn to Achieve Better Performance When Studying

Learning English

When it comes to learning something new, whatever it may be, we often face a common mistake: not knowing ourselves. We don’t know how we study, how we learn, which method helps us retain information better, what we like and dislike when studying, and above all, we lack a review method.

Something I have learned from teaching (and as a student myself) is when I arrive in class and ask the beautiful question, “Did you do your homework?” Sadly, it’s not surprising to hear a resounding “No, teacher.”

Learning English

It is true that we go to class and have a teacher to support us, but often there is a misconception that the teacher is responsible for everything when that is not the case. Let me give you an example: imagine you want to learn how to swim. You go to a school,

take lessons, have a guide who shows you the steps and supports you at the beginning, but sooner or later, you will have to swim on your own, without anyone’s help.

The same thing happens when we are learning something. The teacher is a guide that you have for a certain period of time, but eventually, you have to leave that classroom to experience everything you have learned, guided by your teacher.

Furthermore, when we learn something, we can’t be in class 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, right? It’s important that when you leave class, you have a study method, concentration time, methods to study different areas of the English language, how to practice each of them, and what I, as a teacher and student, consider the most important: the review method.

So, I encourage you to set aside excuses and start getting to know yourself better, understand how you function and learn. I wish you much success on your journey towards mastering the English language and hope to see you soon in class. Goodbye for now, and see you soon! 😉
