Why don’t I understand?

Is this situation familiar for you? Your folks have already understood everything but  it’s just not possible to keep in mind for you.

Don’t be desperate, probably you are just another type of a learner.

When I first started teaching English, I thought all of the pupils would have more or less the same knowledge. But it was such a mistake! There are different types of learners and you should consider it, trying to study something.

Psychologist prooved that among all the people we can distinguish several types of learners.

There are three main types of learning styles: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Most people learn best through a combination of the three types of learning styles, but everybody is different.

Auditory Learners: Hear

Auditory learners would rather listen to things being explained than read about them. Reciting information out loud and having music in the background may be a common study method. Other noises may become a distraction resulting in a need for a relatively quiet place.

Visual Learners: See

Visual learners learn best by looking at graphics, watching a demonstration, or reading. For them, it’s easy to look at charts and graphs, but they may have difficulty focusing while listening to an explanation.

Kinesthetic Learners: Touch

Kinesthetic learners process information best through a “hands-on” experience. Actually doing an activity can be the easiest way for them to learn. Sitting still while studying may be difficult, but writing things down makes it easier to understand.

The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination!

Learning English is a hot topic nowadays. People study it with the hope to get a better job or have more possibillities choosing the career. Therefore, language schools and private tutors pop up all over. They have catchy offers like “English in 30 days”, “several months with us and you’ll speak English fluently” and so on. But it’s not all about that. Even if you spend sleepless nights cramming, it won’t supply you with a lifelong knowledge. Perfect level of language isn’t a final destination, it won’t give you a satisfactory result.

The title of the post is taken from the book”A peaceful warrior”. It shows not only my attitude towards life itself, but also my uderstanding of language learning. If you enjoy the process of studying and get the pleasure from it, you’ll have more positive and substantial knowledge.

I’m interested in language learning and not only English. Languages are everywhere around us, we just need to listen attentively. They give you the possibility to understand this world and people better.

I’m also fond of different psychological questions, especially about people’s behaviour. So, if you have the same feeling about studing, feel free to write me. I’m gonna post some ideas that I find interestion and everything that I find catchy.
