Taking a Break from English
Taking a break from anything in life is important – whether it’s social media, a friend, or language learning! If you’re feeling like you’re in a rut and not motivated to learn, a short, planned break from learning may be a good idea.
The Benefits of an English-Learning Holiday
To avoid burning out, taking a short break might be a good idea. It’s important to be strict with yourself and decide on a time for when you’ll return and start studying again.
When you return to English after a break:
You will feel more refreshed and have a new motivation to learn
You’ll realise that you’re better than you think you are (it resets your high expectations). You may get the feeling like: “Wow! I’m reading and speaking a foreign language! That’s so cool.”
Taking a break from anything can be healthy (social media, internet, a friend or partner, work…)
The brain absorbs what you learn during downtime. It actually helps you learn better! (According to the Learning How to Learn course)
