You know English is important to you. You know you need to improve your English in the next few months to take over the assignment or you have only a few months to get enough TOEIC to graduate. You learn English with great effort and determination. However, after only a few days of schooling, you often feel tired and tense when you start learning English. You start delaying your studies.
Actually, not only you but many other people often encounter such situations. You feel there are too many things you do not know and need to learn. You feel you need to learn a lot, try harder, more, … This may be okay in the first few days. But the downside of it is that the more you feel overwhelmed, the harder it is to learn.
But do not worry! Global Learn will share with you a way to eliminate delays and learning English more efficiently and comfortably. All you have to do is “brave” and “let yourself be lazy”.
“Courage” and “let yourself be a little lazy” here is what?
You set a daily goal. This goal should be enough for you to practice English and absorb a new amount of knowledge, just enough to make you feel no longer overwhelmed when doing it.
Such as :
- Today you will learn 10 new vocabulary and review a grammar structure.
- Or you can practice listening to XYZ audio today.
- Or today you will solve a whole TOEIC test.
Why should you do that?
Because when you set such small goals, you can confidently accomplish them and feel free from pressure. When there is no pressure, you will not delay learning. You can learn English more comfortably and learn dozens of times.
Also, when you accomplish goals and get results, you have more motivation to accomplish more goals. You are “brave” and “a little lazy” by allowing yourself to learn less, but the knowledge and efficiency gained is not less.
You should avoid the case below!
On the contrary, some of you often force yourself to absorb a huge mountain of knowledge every day. For example, if you want to be good, you will set up a study plan in just one day as follows: First, learn 15 new words. Then learn grammar and spend an hour to solve the TOEIC. Continue to spend 2 hours listening. Then practice 30 minutes. The rest of time continues to learning English by listening to music and watching movies.
So how do you think about learning so?
Each day you wake up, you will find extremely tired and stressed with the amount of knowledge to learn, not many you can maintain a schedule like this after a month. In addition, it will be very difficult for you to accomplish that goal every day. When you do not accomplish your goals, the more you learn, the more pressure you will have.
To learning English well, you need to maintain learning and use it regularly every day, for a relative time. Stuffing up a large amount of knowledge at the beginning of a short period of time will not improve your English proficiency (unless you learn to cope with some exams).
What is your decision?
How would you choose to: set small goals and accomplish excellence every day, or set too big goals to feel pressure because you hardly accomplished?
If you choose the first one, right now, start setting a small goal for yourself and finish it the next day. Every day accomplishes a goal. As such, your ability to English will always be on the rise.
