AEE 259: Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew When It Comes to Learning English

MouthHow many words should you learn at a time?

On today’s Wisdom Wednesday, Lindsay and Michelle talk about why it’s important to pace yourself so you don’t get overwhelmed!

 

It’s hard not to want to do everything.  But it’s important to know when to slow down.  Doing as much as you can, as fast as you can, makes it nearly impossible to retain information.

Maybe you’re watching Youtube videos in English.  You might discover that you can learn more watching one per day than ten per day.  This is because watching only one allows you to learn in quality, rather than quantity.

When learning new words, don’t try to learn 50 or 100 new words at a time — it won’t work!  Instead, consider learning around 5-10 new words at a time.  Remember Aesop’s fable about the tortoise and the hare: “Slow and steady wins the race!”

 

Do you try to learn too much at one time?

Does it cause you problems?
