Abstract

Language learning is a little like doing a jigsaw puzzle. It takes a while before all the pieces fall into place. So don’t worry about odd pieces of grammar or items of vocabulary that you can’t quite remember or understand. With plenty of practice and exposure to the languge you will piece together each bit to create the whole picture. This is why you need your file – so that you can keep adding new information to what you have already learned. It is a good idea at this stage to divide up your notes according to some plan that suits you. It might be based on grammar if you are that way inclined, or it could be based on situations (such as the ones you are going to meet in this Unit). Whatever it is, review your notes regularly. Language learning is about maintaining what you already know, as well as learning new information. And don’t be afraid to write on your books. They are working documents, designed to help you learn as efficiently and interestingly as possible.
