♠️IMPROVE YOUR LANGUAGE LEARNING♠️
You probably want to reach fluency if you're learning a foreign language.
(If not, please tell me why you don’t think you can.)
Language learning comes with challenges as the path to fluency doesn't always seem to be a straight line.
It challenges us to start thinking differently and stay out of our comfort zone.
It can be one of the most rewarding activities that could open doors to opportunities and different experiences that we were previously unaware of.
Some Important QUESTIONS for you to ask yourself
Q1: Why did I decide to learn a foreign language?
Q2: What have I tried so far that has worked well and not so well?
Q3: Do I have a structured learning plan?
Q4: How do I know that I'm getting better? (Change is not a function of time but of genuine desire and concentration of efforts)
Q5: Do I feel trapped without making much progress even after months or years of study? (If applicable)
Q6: Why does it seem so hard to reach any decent level of proficiency in my language learning?
Q7: Why did I give up? Now I have to start all over again (if applicable)
Language learning is one of the most humbling, rewarding, and humanistic processes that we can get involved in.
But first, we need to focus on establishing the right mindset that is most conducive to learning a language well and cut out distractions.
😵"But How Should I Choose a Teacher?"
After all, there are many teachers available.
How do I know which teacher would be the right one for me?
I suggest you contact many different teachers who resonate with you to discover more about their teaching styles and how they can precisely help you with your language goals.
But, I do believe that I have an edge that comes from my knowledge and experience in
1. Teaching and learning languages
2. Performance psychology that I learned from athletics and financial trading
3. Process-driven approach to problem-solving that I learned from my work in IT and finance
📗What I Ask of You:
0.No Teaching/Learning via phone alone – It makes both learning and teaching ineffective
1. (IMPORTANT): If you book a lesson with me, I usually expect you to have some basic understanding of Korean (Hangul, a few basic verbs & phrases would be enough).
If not, don't worry about it. We will start from the very beginning.
2. MAXIMIZE Your Exposure to Your Target Language: Always look for an opportunity to practice and gain experience. It is the surest way to improve your proficiency.
3. CONNECT with other students learning the same language(s) and native speakers.
4. JOURNAL your progress for record-keeping of your progress with CLARITY and ACCOUNTABILITY.
5. ACTIVE LEARNING: Get in the habit of actively engaging during lessons by writing things down and asking questions.
6. If you enjoy our lesson, please leave your COMMENT after each class. It will help me understand more about students’ needs and help me keep bringing quality lessons.
📢IMPORTANT Admin Stuff:
(Cancellation & Absence Policy)
*Should you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, don't hesitate to get in touch with me or reschedule on Verbling at least 12 hours in advance. (I also abide by this rule if I have to reschedule.)
*Cancelling within the last 12 hours results in 50% of the lesson fee charged automatically.
*Please note that 100% of the lesson fee will still be charged by default if a student is absent for a lesson without any notice or try to cancel it at the very last minute. I will wait for 15minutes before I mark the lesson absent. I do this because I have to forego another lesson.
*Please ensure a good, reliable internet connection and audio/visual setup.
*Please don't use a cell phone for your lesson as it severely limits what we can do for lessons. I do not give lessons for students who only use their cell phones.
*(Optional but Recommended): Dual monitor setup or an additional screen via tablet or mobile device.
(Suggestions for Our First Lesson)
*If this is your first lesson, I recommend taking a 1hr lesson instead of a 30min trial lesson as the first lesson usually requires 1hr of helping students plan their study routine.
