How to study in your spare time 1: Study by listening
Let me quickly introduce you to the study of listening.
What's a listening study?
The study of listening is as follows.
Listen to English audio.
Listen to learning videos from schools, etc.
I'm going to listen to what I recorded.
In other words, it's a study method that allows you to acquire skills and knowledge just by listening.
Does it work just by listening to it?
As it turns out, just listening doesn't do the trick.
A lot of unfamiliar terms appear, and it becomes difficult to understand the contents.
If you continue to ignore what you don't understand, you'll never understand it.
It's just a supplementary method of study.
Have you ever had an experience where you couldn't concentrate on what the other person was saying because you were distracted by what they were saying when they said something you didn't understand? In the same way, you can't continue studying when you hear a term you don't understand.
Therefore, understand the contents you don't understand beforehand, and then proceed with the study of listening.
Tips for learning to listen
Earlier, I mentioned that listening alone is not effective.
However, knowing how to study listening will increase the effectiveness of your learning.
1. Start with content that is appropriate for your level.
Instead of starting with difficult content right off the bat, study listening comprehension from content you can understand.
If you don't understand a term, you don't know what you're asking about.
When you're learning something new, you're more likely to focus and be motivated to learn if you start with the easy parts.
Therefore, you should start studying with the content that is appropriate for your level.
2. Listen with awareness of the content sometimes
Let's listen consciously to what kind of content we are doing now, just to confirm.
This is because it helps you organize and understand the content in your mind.
When you listen to someone, you don't just hear what they have to say, but by organizing it in your mind, it's easier for the other person to visualize what you're trying to say.
Just listen to it once in a while, and be aware of the content.
3. Repeat input and output
To get results, the relationship between input and output is important.
No matter how much knowledge and experience you input, if you do not output it well, it will not necessarily lead to achievements and results.
People can fix their memory by repeatedly outputting the information they have input.
Have you ever looked at a kanji or an English word that you had inputted once and wondered, "What's that word again? When you see a kanji or an English word that you thought you had inputted once, have you ever had trouble remembering it?
If you have such an experience, it could be that your output is lacking.
By using (outputting) the content you learn in your studies, you can make it more ingrained. Therefore, in the same way as with listening study, you should actually output the content you hear.
By implementing the above methods, comprehension will improve and content will be naturally retained.
Also, by listening to the same content over and over again, you will be able to understand it better.
How to study in your spare time 2: Read a reference book
Here we will introduce the study method of reading reference books.
Things to keep in mind when buying a reference book
When you start studying, do you tend to buy a lot of reference books?
I also buy a lot of reference books, saying "I like this one" or "Oh! I buy a lot of reference books.
But this is the wrong way.
the reason why is
I buy a lot of reference books and get satisfied.
Just buying a reference book makes you feel like you've done your homework.
You give up on your studies and say, "That's enough.
Therefore, think about why you need to buy a reference book.
One reference book is all you need to buy.
You don't need to buy a lot of them because the content is very similar.
Before you buy a reference book, make sure you have a purpose for why you need it.
Note that buying a reference book without a clear purpose will not motivate you.
Read reference books as if you were reading
Studying by reading reference books in your spare time is effective.
Because of the following.
Because you can grasp the whole of the reference book.
・If you keep reading it over and over again, your understanding of the content will improve.
I'll show you exactly what the above means.
1. because it can grasp the whole of the reference book
Let's read it from beginning to end first.
This is because it allows you to understand what will be on the exam and to check your weak points.
Once you know what the whole thing is about, you can look at your goal and with a clear goal, you'll be more motivated.
You can also put sticky notes or markers on the pages you don't understand. This will help you to understand what you don't understand, and it will be useful later when you read the text repeatedly.
Therefore, you should first start by understanding the entire reference book.
2. because if you keep reading it over and over again, you will improve your understanding of the content
Reading a reference book only once will not help you understand its contents.
You can't understand the contents of a textbook or a book just by reading it once, so you have to read it repeatedly.
It's the same with reference books. By reading them repeatedly, you will be able to retain the written content and understand it.
