Mind optimization for quick English learning
Improve your auditory memory, attention and information processing skills
To learn English fast you need to optimize your mind for specific tasks. My teaching method helps you improve your concentration skills, increase you auditory memory and motivate you to focus not just on the content of your learning but also to the development of your brain for faster processing.
Motivation and your attitude are the key elements in learning effectively. But it is not enough just motivate yourself for the end goal. You need to teach your mind to enjoy the learning process, too. Without result oriented approach and enjoying the learning itself, you will give up your study quickly.
You also need to optimize your mind for persistence and dealing with distractions. You need to learn to adopt and follow effective learning processes and make them your habits.
Studying and applying the mind optimization method, which I described in my book "Mind Optimization" and teach in my courses can help you better understand how the mind works, and what we need to improve.
Once specific method I use in English teaching is learning by ear only. Since most Hong Kong people learn English visually, by reading, their auditory processing skills and auditory memory is not very good. The method itself has the built-in function to increase the brain's short and long term memory, especially the auditory memory capacity and the skill to focus intensively for all the details.
For example, you watch a 10-second video scene many times and you have to memorize it word by word. It forces you to pay attention and it will improve your memory, too. When your brain starts to adapt to the new challenge, your listening skill will significantly improve.
Another mental tool - but just for higher level students - is the discussion topics themselves. The interesting topic about communication, leadership, health, marketing, creativity, spirituality, personality, teaching and learning will you see connections, gives you frameworks and structures for thinking and helps you to develop your abstract thinking skills.
