Fitting English into a busy schedule/將英語融入你的緊湊日程安排裡 (中英對照 精華文章)




還找不出時間來學習英語嗎?如果生活如此多采多姿而使你你沒有時間來安排,有一項好消息就是你不需要當一位全程的語言學習學員。請利用下列學習語言的10項訣竅,不論你有多忙碌,融入你的日程安排裡。


1.短時間學習
每天唸一點比一週只唸很多小時來的有效率。這也就是說學習不需要花大量的時間,只需要每天花20分鐘就可以有所獲益。看看Englishtown的每日課程-它可以排在任何的日程裡。


2.選一個彈性課程
即使你沒有很多時間,一項課程仍然對規劃你的學習計畫及學習進度很重要。但並不是那麼死板板的。例如,在Englishtown.com每一個小時都有新的課程,你可以在任何時間裡來學習。

3.找一個學習同伴
雖然最好的方法就是找一位外籍人士來對話練習,但是你還是可以與你的朋友在用餐或休息時間練習。只限定用英語交談。

4.將英語融入在日常生活當中
寫下逛街要買的東西,閱讀新聞,或將你的瀏覽器首頁設定為英語網站。大量字彙最好是一點一點的累積並且每天持續的練習。

5.做閃示卡
在小卡片上寫單字然後將它們放置在你的房間內。你可以用英語寫一些標籤,以作為提醒你記住單字片語的工具。

6.善用你的空閒時間練習
在車上聽一捲錄音帶是多麼一件容易的事,在休息時閱讀一本英文書,或在公車上復習閃示卡。總之通勤的時刻是研讀的好時機。

7.專注你的興趣
閱讀一些你愛閱讀的英文書,或者實際行動,加入英語話劇團體。你將會覺得你有更多的專注力想要去專研你的嗜好並樂在其中!

8.善用淋浴的時間
何不利用這段時間來練習使用英語說話以應對你每天發生的事情呢?將英語說出來對於學習一種語言是很重要的,大聲閱讀也很有幫助,利用淋浴時刻何嘗不是一個很好的時間。

9.臨睡前的回顧
在你睡覺前先花一點點時間快速扼要的再復習一次。當你熟睡時,所學習到的已經在你的心田和大腦上留下深刻的印象了。

10.無須氣餒
有些時候看起來你好像沒什麼進步
但事實上,你是有的。千萬不要放棄,相信最後你會看到成果。





Can't find the time to study English? If life's so hectic it seems you have no time to spare, the good news is you don't need to be a full time student to learn a language. Put these top ten tips to use, and fit English into your schedule no matter how busy you are.


1. Study in short doses

It's more effective to study a little each day rather than for several hours just once a week. This also means learning doesn't have to take up a big chunk of time, as just twenty minutes a day can reap rewards over time. Check out Englishtown's Daily Lesson ?it can fit into any schedule.


2. Choose a flexible course

Even without lots of time, a course is still important for structuring your study plan and measuring your progress. But not all are rigid. For example, at Englishtown.com you can study any time you're free and classes start every hour.

3. Find a study partner

While it might be best to find a native English speaker, you can even practice with a friend during a meal or break. Simply agree to only use English.

4. Do your daily tasks in English

Write shopping lists, read the news, or set your Internet browser homepage to an English language site. A large vocabulary is best built slowly with everyday practice.

5. Make flashcards

Write English words on small note cards and place them around your room. You may want to label things in English, or just set them out as a reminder.

6. Use your downtime to practice

This can be as easy as listening to cassettes in your car, reading an English book during your break, or reviewing flashcards on the bus. A work commute is a particularly good time to study.

7. Focus on your interests

Read about your hobbies in English, or if acting is your thing, join an English drama group. You'll feel more energized to study something you enjoy!

8. Use the shower

Why not use this alone time to practice speaking and going over the events of your day in English? Speaking is very important in learning a language. Reading aloud is also helpful, but a shower might not be the best time for this!

9. Review before bedtime

Spend just a short time quickly reviewing important information just before you go to sleep. Studies have shown that your brain processes information that is fresh in your mind while you sleep.

10. Don't get discouraged

Sometimes it will seem as though you're not making progress when, in fact, you are. Don't give up, and you will surely see the benefits in the end.
