If you are finding that you are not remembering your online lesson or new vocabulary, you might find that by changing how you learn changes your results. We’ve spoken about getting into the right state of mind, relaxing and visualising before you start your learning session. Today I want to talk about what happens during your learning session.
Have you ever sat in a meeting or lecture and after about 10 minutes, start to day dream? You usually pay attention again when the meeting is about to finish!
- Have you ever tried to remember a list of words and you always remember easily the first few words, the last few words and any words in the middle that are unusual or that you relate to?
So what if we create lots of beginnings and ends in your learning session to create a different outcome?
Rather than do one block of 1 or 2 hours at one time in a week (students usually do this before their tutorial!!), try 6 blocks of 15-20 minutes during your week. Put it in your diary for 3 weeks and create a new habit. Then let me know what difference you’ve noticed. I think you will be amazed at the results, Jo
