AEE 344: Why Bite-sized Chunks Are the Key to Success for the Busy English Learner

Learning with bite-sized English chunks

Today we have a guest on the show!

Vanessa from Speak English with Vanessa will show you how you can still learn English even if your life is super busy using “bite-sized chunks.”

 

Are you too busy to sit down in a traditional classroom?

There are plenty of things that you can do if you don’t have time for an English class.

Here are Vanessa’s suggestions:

  • Decide what is sustainable for you: How much time do you have each day? What amount of time can you dedicate every single day? Make sure you don’t overdose on learning one day. Instead, be consistent with your specific amount of time each day. This is especially important if you have an exam coming up such as the IELTS Exam.
  • Choose the same time every day to learn English: This will create a habit. Once it has become a habit you no longer have to decide if you are going to do it. If it’s a habit you will be more likely to continue with it. This will also help you prevent procrastination. You will take action every single day.
  • Try not to miss two days in a row: If you do this it’s hard to get back into the habit. It’s ok to miss one day but if you miss two then you need to make a conscious effort to re-start the habit.
