How to stay consistent when studying A1-German in an online course
Consistency is key – this of course also applies to language learning! However, life is busy and sometimes it can be hard to maintain a consistent study routine. Now you might ask yourself: How to stay consistent when studying A1-German in an online course? In this article I want to give you the best tips to stay on track with your German learning.
Set a study schedule
Firstly, it is important to set a schedule for your German learning. Especially when learning with our (or any) online course you must make sure that you dedicate specific times for studying. This could be twice or three times a week for an hour each study session, or 10 – 15 minutes each day. Whatever, you choose – make a schedule and stick to it! To do that successfully block off specific times for studying in your calendar and make sure you won’t be interrupted during that time.
Create a pleasant study environment
Another important point is to create a study environment. Make sure you block the studying time in your calendar, so that you won’t be disturbed. Designate a quiet, well-lit area for studying and remove any distractions such as cell phones, social media, or television. A conducive environment will help you focus and improve your concentration.
Break down your study goals into manageable tasks
Furthermore, you should break down your study goals into small, manageable tasks. Set achievable milestones for yourself to track your progress. For example, you might set a goal of learning 50 new vocabulary words each week or completing a new lesson of our online course every day. By breaking down your goals into smaller, achievable tasks, you can stay focused and motivated as you learn A1 German.
Take regular breaks
To stay focused and motivated during your study session it is also very important to take regular breaks. Research suggests that the average person can maintain their focus and concentration for about 45-50 minutes at a time before they begin to experience a decline in attention and cognitive performance. After this point, taking a short break or changing the focus of the learning session can help to recharge the brain and improve concentration. It is recommended to take a break of about 10-15 minutes after each 50-minute learning session to give your brain a chance to rest and recover.
Find your ideal time to study
It is also important to note that the ability to maintain focus and concentration can vary throughout the day. Some people may find that they are more alert and productive in the morning, while others may be more focused in the afternoon or evening. Finding the time of day that works best for you and if possible, scheduling your learning sessions accordingly can help you to stay focused and productive for longer periods.
