If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will know about the huge amount of resources available online to learn English. The reality, however, is that many students will get excited about all this information and absorb it all… temporarily. After a while, they will forget what they learned.
I see this all the time as a teacher. A student will come to me and tell me about how long they were studying at their English institute and the good grades they got. The conversation would follow with me saying something like: “Great!, and what are you doing with your English right now?”. When I say this, they will reply something like: “I studied it then but haven’t really used it since I graduated…only occasionally”. The story repeats again.
