LEARNING TIPS: DON'T LET SUMMER STOP YOU (PART 1)
LEARNING TIPS: DON'T LET SUMMER STOP YOU (PART 1): meaning and examples
As summer moves closer and the weather improves, there is a tendency to forget about English. We are planning our holidays, finishing up projects at work and slowly disconnecting from the "rat race." Disconnecting from the rat race is a good thing, but treating English like a seasonal activity, rather than a daily lifetime activity, could be the thing that is keeping you from reaching your desired level!
Unfortunately, interest in learning English comes in cycles. Interest is greatest in September and October, after summer holidays, and in January and February, at the beginning of the New Year. This cyclical tendency causes many students to constantly spend their lives taking one step forward and two steps back with their English learning.
Don't slow down now! While your planning for your summer, think about how you can keep your English alive during your holidays. Perhaps you will be travelling to an English-speaking country. If you're not so lucky, there are a lot of things that you can do to maintain your English, and even improve it! Do you have any ideas for summer English-maintenance activities?
Tomorrow I will give you some of my ideas, but the first step to keeping your English alive in the summer is thinking about what you will do to achieve your goals.
Have an excellent day!
