DIALOGUE JOURNAL N°24 - 2015-2016
EVENING CLASSES? IN-COMPANY TRAINING?
Many language schools offer courses in the evening or business courses during lunch times.
These courses start with a good intention: making the most of our free time during our workday. Unfortunately, the results are disappointing if we want real progress in the language we are learning. If the teacher is competent, we can ‘maintain’ our language level, but make no mistake: progress, following this formula, is difficult or even impossible.
Most of the time, these are group classes. Our speaking time is, unfortunately, extremely limited. In a group of six participants, we are unable to practice speaking the language for more than ten minutes. Moreover, we will not be in an ideal learning state. At midday, we will be preoccupied by the work-related events of the morning and those that await us in the afternoon. In the evening, tired from our day's work, we will be reviewing the day’s events and preparing for the next day. It will be almost impossible to revise our lessons and memorize new vocabulary. In order to make rapid progress, we should ideally have a no daily preoccupations and think only of the language we are learning.
