Jeremy’s English Tips #9: Making new habits

Episode description

In this episode, we are going to be talking about habits, and more specifically, we will be talking about making new habits. In order to learn language more efficiently, we need to make some new study habits and integrate them into our daily lives. In order to do that, I recommend something called habit piggybacking. Now piggyback, to give someone a piggyback ride we say, means you give someone a ride on your back.

Habit piggybacking is a great way to form new habits. For example, if you want to make a habit of studying vocabulary flashcards every day, then you should pair your vocabulary study with another thing that you already do every day. For example, before you eat breakfast, you study your flashcards.

Take home messages

  1.  Making new habits is difficult because following old habits is always easier
  2.  You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
  3.  Habit piggy-backing is a great way to form new habits
  4.  For language learners, making a habit of doing repetitive listening and vocabulary study is a great way to accelerate your learning
  5.  It is okay to take breaks sometimes because the brain needs time to synthesize all the new information
