Congratulations if you have recently passed the Cambridge First exam. It is a significant milestone in your English language journey. You have demonstrated a significant grasp of English at an upper intermediate level. You might probably be thinking, “well that’s the end of that!” And for most people it is. However, things are changing in the world and your success in the exam may not be the end of the road.

“If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead”.
James Clear Atomic Habits 2018

I believe there has been a recent, profound shift in the way that people approach getting better at something. This includes studying or learning a language but can also include improving any skill; cooking, public speaking, exercising, playing a musical instrument etc. To achieve real success and, yes reach a goal, the key is not to fixate on the objective but to develop a useful habit. The more something becomes habitual the less it seems like work – you will actually look forward to it and the process becomes automatic.

You may have heard of the 10,000 hour rule. The author Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers basically described it as the number of hours that extremely successful people worked at something before they achieved any success. He uses The Beatles and Bill Gates as examples. However if we are to do the math on this it equates to 3 hours a day over the course of 9 years!

I think that level of commitment is admirable but probably unsustainable. However, there is a middle ground when it comes to learning a language. Developing small, daily habits into your or your children’s routine is key. This includes things like reading, listening to music and (yes!) watching short series’ on Netflix, with or without subtitles depending on level.

Your habits define you. If you want to see progress then incorporating language learning into your daily routine along with, for example, eating well and exercising, then you will reach your goals, probably without even realising it.

DOS and teacher at AAprendre idiomes

Adaptar-se o morir. La manera actual d’aprendre un idioma no és la mateixa de fa uns anys, i això es nota moltíssim en els cursos d’estiu. Ens anem reinventant per poder oferir el què millor funciona i per descomptat, el què millor se us adapta.
Vam començar fa uns anys amb les sessions temàtiques d’AAprendre idiomes, i … funcionen!! Cada alumn@ tria el número de sessions que vol fer, quan les vol fer i quines vol fer. I com sempre, amb grups reduïts! A l’estiu, màxim 8 alumnes per grup (durant el curs, màxim 6 alumnes per grup).

L’aprenentatge dels idiomes (per sort) ha canviat molt durant els últims anys. I no parlem de la introducció de les noves tecnologies (que també), sinó de les metodologies usades dins i fora de l’aula. Diccionaris on-line, aplicacions de traducció simultània, recursos lingüístics a ma de tothom i en infinitat de formats,…
