As an online English Coach to students all over the world, I work to understand what learning techniques are best for each student. Not everyone is the same, of course. Some students can gain a lot from the "listen and repeat method". For a few, it's just a waste of time. Some students have learned a lot from listening to songs in English. Some just don't like music enough for this method to be effective. Click "Create New Post" and begin a discussion. Share what has worked best for you! I'd love to know and I'm sure other students might like to try out your techniques for themselves and give you their tips.
