Have you noticed that two different people, studying in the same class with the same teacher, can get different learning outcomes? The point is a lot depends on the efforts of the person himself/ herself and his/ her desire to learn the language. And now we will focus on this point, and you will find out how you yourself can benefit from any class.

Here are 5 tips to succeed in any of your classes:

  1. Attend class.

It is absolutely crucial for students to attend class regularly. Skipping classes, you roll back one step. Of course, each of us can get sick or get into an unforeseen situation. If you miss a lesson, it is best to ask your teacher to send you the material covered, and work it out on your own. If you do not understand something, get ready with your questions for the next class.

  1. Come to class prepared.

 Homework is an important part of your learning. 50% of the effectiveness of your classes depends on whether you do it or not. Homework is necessary to revise what was learned in class.

  1. Participate in class.

Do your best to participate in class discussions by responding to questions asked by the teacher or other students. Feel free to ask your teacher questions. If you feel you did not understand a new topic, tell your teacher right away. 

  1. Do not take long breaks. 

After taking a long break, you literally start everything from the very beginning. For example: a person started learning English and after a while decided to take a break for 2-3 months. After such a break, a person does not even remember much of the material covered. All efforts, money and labor are in vain. 

  1. Put your knowledge into practice. 

You learn English to use it in life. Therefore, you should not limit the study of English only to your classes. After all, in order to use your English, you do not have to allocate separate time for this. It is enough just to get into the habit of doing in English what you did in your native language. For example, write shopping lists in English, watch your favorite sitcoms and movies in English.

So, to benefit from your classes you need to: 

- try not to miss classes;

- do homework;

- do not be shy to ask questions; 

- do not take long breaks;

- use the acquired knowledge in life .

By following all these tips, you are able to make your learning more effective and achieve your goals in a shorter period of time.
