  1. 1. How to study and improve in a Language<br />by Fletcher, Year 10<br />
  2. 2. Basics<br />Whenever learning a language (especially foreign characters) the key is repetition and constant study is necessary.<br />Cramming before an exam is not effective as it will only help in the short term.<br />A good approach towards learning a language is to think of it as a free service that will assist you in understanding other cultures, rather than a subject forced on you.<br />
  3. 3. Good Study Habits<br />One of the most effective ways of not only learning, but remembering a language is to do 30 minutes broken up throughout the day of study.<br />10 minutes (flexible) on homework<br />10 minutes on Vocabulary and Characters (non-flexible)<br />10 minutes on grammatical structure and revision<br />From doing this everyday (even weekends) you should be able to finish all of your homework as well reduce the amount of study necessary before the exams.<br />
  4. 4. How to do homework for a language<br />Do everything in a logical order, do not skip between chapters.<br />If you have problems with a section, do not just check out the answers. Ask a friend or identify the problem with your teacher as soon as possible.<br />Do not assume that because it is ‘only’ a language that it doesn’t need as much effort or time, language tends to be tedious.<br />Don’t procrastinate <br />
  5. 5. How to practice vocabulary<br />A good idea to practice your vocabulary is to use palm cards, one side with the phrase or word, the other with pronunciation and the translation<br />To practice your characters view the pronunciation and translation, and write the characters or phrase on a spare sheet of paper<br />To practice your knowledge of characters or phrases, view the character or phrase and make an educated guess to what it is.<br />
  6. 6. How to practice grammatical structure<br />The best ways of practicing grammatical structure is by either speaking it, or writing it<br />The ways to do this are<br />Writing a journal entry<br />Writing a paragraph (essay)<br />Practicing you structure with friends that speak the language<br />
  7. 7. Conclusion<br />Most of these tips can be used for all of your other subjects, but these are the most effective methods for learning a language<br />Good Luck …<br />
