How can you maximize your learning and get the most out of time you have? Today I’d like to answer a question I’ve been asked many times. The question is: where do I get time to practice everything I do? Indeed, autogenic training, yoga, meditation, martial arts, Chi Kung, reflexology, tea ceremony, gardening, music, and so on. This is quite a list of activities, especially since I was going full time to medical university and learning English on my own. Yes, I did. I also learned shorthand in the meantime, which helped me a lot to write down all my lectures word by word. We did not have technology at that time, as we have it today.
First of all, let’s separate two types of learning. As babies, we learn to walk, to talk, to do all basic things we need to learn. Later we learn to read, to write, to ride a tricycle, to play games etc. This is initial learning. Once we learn to read and write, do we keep learning? Of course we do. We may not spend extra time for that, unless reading and writing is a part of our further education and perhaps part of our future career . But we constantly learn something new about our own language. I can guarantee I can take almost any native English speaker and find some words in the English dictionary that they don’t know. If you don’t believe me, take a tour inside the hospital and try to name every medical device you see there. Not in Latin, in plain English. Or go to the music store and name every piece you see there. Again, in plain English. We just don’t need all that vocabulary in our every day life. But we can definitely learn a lot. And we do…
