Too Much Studying…

and not enough living. That is the constant struggle for people who are trying to find the balance between classroom learning and realworld usage of a new language.

I always tell students that it is best if they spend more time “out and about” and trying to communicate using the new language that they learn here in Canada. Every week you should take a coupe of the things you learn in your language classes and apply them to your real life!

I recommend taking a grammar point, several vocabulary words, and and idioms or phrases you may have learned in class a try to use them several time during the week. Always check with your teacher about proper usage of these before you “hit the street”.
