There is no student who learns in the same way as his/her colleague. There are those who learn better if they listen to the language, others who learn better if they have well-defined grammar rules. There are students who quickly memorize vocabulary and sentence structures when reading, and there are those who write to learn.

The articulation of the various learning strategies in the classroom helps to respond to all linguistic needs.

Have some self-reflection and answer the question “How do I learn best?”. This will help you communicate to the teacher which is the best method that works for you.

Learning is teamwork between teacher and student in which the identification of the best methodologies determines the speed and efficiency of learning.

In addition to the classes, there are small tricks that can help your language fluency (in Portuguese or English -depending on the language you are learning) including:

  • Change the software idiom on your computer, tablet and phone.
  • Watch movies and series with subtitles in the language you want to learn.
  • Listen to the radio or podcasts in the language you want to learn while driving or jogging.
  • Reserve 15 minutes of your day to study:
    • 10 new words per day.
    • 5 new daily expressions or idioms per week.

We should believe that “Little tweaks lead to big changes” (Amy Cuddy in “Body Language Shapes Who you Are”-Ted Talks).
