21. Plan to take a test. You’ll find that you work harder when you need to study for something.
22. Saying that, it’s better not to study just to take a test. Think of the bigger picture. What can you do when you have a good command of English? How will the quality of your life improve?
23. Give yourself a long term goal. Focus on working towards it.
24. Give yourself short term goals too and reward yourself when you achieve each one.
25. Create an atmosphere in which you want to learn, not because you have to. You’ll learn more when you’re learning because you want to.
26. Know what works best for you. Think about what methods have been successful for you in the past and stick with them.
27. Figure out how you learn. It can be by memorising, reading, speaking, summarising or other methods. Find out how you study best. It can be in a quiet place by yourself or with a group.
28. Get help! If you don’t understand something you’ve got to ask someone. Ask your teacher, classmates or friends for help.
29. Review! Review! Review! Make sure that you take the time to review things you have studied in the past.
30. It’s not a good idea to study on your own for more than 30 minutes at a time. Take regular breaks, get some fresh air and stretch your legs.
