Hello everyone! How are you?
I recently found this video that I want to share with you today. I want to share it with you because you may have children and therefore may find it very useful. I can still remember how difficult it was to get my children to do their homework…
But also, even if you do not have children, you are an English learner and you will find it very interesting, useful and motivating to know which your academic pace is.
Let’s revise some vocabulary before watching de video to help your understanding.
Drag – Something that retards motion, such as an anchor.
Burned out – Exhausted.
Snack – Food eaten between meals.
Re-charge – To revive or renew one’s energy.
Routine – A set of customary activities.
Homework mode – Ready to do homework.
Academic pace – The rate of speed in which people study and learn.
Rewards – Something given as recognition for something well done.
Bribe – Something, like money, given to influence or persuade someone.
What kind of learner are you? Are you a sprinter or a long distance runner?
– If you can study for several hours, do a lot of work and only study once or twice a week, you are a sprinter.
– If you can study for short periods of time but you study more than three or four times a week, then you a long distance runner.
It does not matter whether you apply this for your children or for yourself. The most important thing is that you need to be aware of what your pace is and be fair with yourself by establishing a studying routine that suits your academic pace.
Find out what do you need to re-charge after work to get into the learning English mode… and go for it!
Take care and keep practicing your English!
