Did you have a good weekend?
I did (thanks for asking!)
I spent most of the weekend catching up with people from back home, relaxing and getting prepared to go back to the UK for Christmas.
What did you do at the weekend?
Did you watch the self study training video I sent to you on Friday? Or did you spend time with your friends and family?
I was thinking… being lazy isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes we need to ‘recharge our batteries’. In fact, I don’t think that being busy = a great weekend.
I believe that a great weekend doesn’t depend on HOW MUCH you do…
… Nope, instead I think a weekend is great because of WHAT you do.
Take my weekend, for example. I didn’t do much (in fact, I was probably a bit lazy), but it was a good weekend because of what I did.
It’s the same for learning English:
A lot of the time, English learners focus on the ‘how much’ or ‘how long’ when they think about learning English. But they don’t really think about ‘what‘ they should do.
You can spend hours and hours studying English. But if you aren’t doing the right things, you might just be wasting your time.
So what can you do to make your time more useful?
Well, one way is to know exactly what you should study or how you’re going to practise.
That’s why I created ‘The English Temperature Check’. It’s a tool that can give you the best possible start to learning English because it will help you to focus on the right things:
It’ll help you to focus on the ‘what‘ you should study rather than the ‘how much’.
You can learn more about the English Temperature Check and get it here:
But I should tell you this: The English Temperature Check is a tool for people who are learning English on their own and don’t have time to go to English classes. It’s also a tool for people who want to have more focus and direction in their English learning, so they can improve faster.
