Deliberate Practice Part 1

Naive Practice vs. Purposeful Practice

At some point, every student gets stuck at a level of English where they are seeing very little progress, and sometimes, no progress at all. If this is happening to you, it might be because you are doing something called Naive Practice which is a very general way of ‘practicing’ or learning English.

To get better results from the time you spend on your English, you can start practicing with a specific purpose. In this episode, I’ll explain more about these two types of practice and how to practice with purpose to get better results for each hour you spend on your English.

For years, I was terrified to speak English. After only a few lessons, I started to feel more confident and felt free to speak my thoughts. Now, I can finally speak without fear and I feel like myself in English!
