If it’s not our thoughts, it’s our roommates. Or neighbors. Or kids. These study intruders take over, causing us to lose focus. And focus, friends, is what you need to be able to study for any of the big tests, from the LSAT and MCAT to the SAT and ACT to just your average test in school. So how do you focus? These six steps will show you how to regain focus if you get distracted, and how to set yourself up for focused success before your study session ever begins. 1. GET RID OF OBVIOUS DISTRACTIONS It’s not smart to study with your cell phone on, even if it’s set to vibrate. As soon as you get a text, you’re going to look. You’re human, after all! But remember, you can’t focus…

That’s right, English is spoken by all pilots to identify themselves on flights, regardless of where they are from – yet another way in which learning English improves employability, to join our examples in tourism and multinational companies. 2. You or me? We use the words ‘you’ and ‘me’ all the time, but which of the two do you think is the most widely used? You might be surprised to learn that while ‘you’ is the 18th most commonly used word in the English language; ‘me’ is way back at number 50. So what is the most used English word? Exactly that: ‘the’. 3. One in a billion! If you were to write…

learning to speak english

What Does ‘Student-Focused’ Mean? While studying with us at LLE, in addition to the material we provide, you will be required to produce written and spoken English at your level – everyday. Each student’s texts and recordings are, in turn, used as class reading and Listening exercises. These texts and recordings are unofficially graded by fellow students in terms of grammar, vocabulary and style in writing, and fluency and pronunciation in speaking. In this way, you will become very used to producing your own English very quickly, at your own level. Lesson Formats: Students studying at English language schools come at different times, and for different lengths of time. For this reason, we do not structure our courses on formal Course Books,which usually offer a 12-week, progressive course at each level. We make use of these books where necessary, but use our material, and importantly, your material, to make the…
