3 Tips for Successful Learning new Language
1. Learning on weekends is not enough
One of the most important conditions of language proficiency is practice and learning regularly. As shown in Figure 1, people who learn long-term languages spend a few minutes every day or two practicing what they have learned. On the other hand, those who train every 5 or 6 days are more likely to stop altogether. Figure 2 shows that successful learners do a great deal of learning sessions each week, meaning they spend a lot of time studying.
The authors of the report – Dr. Per Seitz and Dr. Hagluara, both a research scientist and a software engineer on the Duolingo platform – point out that they also defined usage patterns, such as weekenders who use the application on weekends only, or nine-to-fivers, who study within hours Normal work. Figure 3 shows that these usage groups show less learning ability than the group that uses the application on a daily basis. It has even been shown that people who study before bed on a daily basis achieve slightly better results. This is consistent with research that confirmed the effectiveness of language learning during sleep.
When you are at the beginning of a learning journey – the report says – it is best to allocate a daily time to study for a few minutes in order to continue to remember what you learned. The data show that if you do, you will probably be committed to learning and will learn more in the long term. But it is better if you make the study of bedtime is usually fixed!
