Structure in Learning and Life
I’ve made a recent change to my Chinese learning method and added some more structure, so with that in mind, I’d like to share how structure can help improve your language learning journey, remove stress from your life, and give you more guilt-free time to relax.
The Changes I Made
1. Slightly changed the place and time I study
This allows my mind to focus more on this language, rather than getting distracted by other projects or languages. It’s also easier to study when your mind can associate different languages with different locations.
2. Started using an online course program
This made such a profound difference. I now no longer worry about if I’m studying the right way, or about what I should study each day, but instead, I just sit down and do it. Everything else is done for me.
“Lack of structure can make us feel unmotivated and distracted and often leads to you doing everything at the last minute. Of course, flexibility is important, but structure is necessary for creating a sense of stability and balance in your life.”

Hi Amani, that’s great! I’m so pleased the podcast is helpful to your solo-study journey
I must admit being pleased when you mentioned the textbook English File. It was my study material at grammar school and I knew my English teacher was one of the best at school. She used to be strict with us but I’m sure that it was a right approach. When I began my university studies my English skills were better than the three quarters of my classmates. I think it was thanks to English File (and my excellent teacher) because hardly anybody knew that textbook.
So if somebody hesitates, I fully recommend English File textbooks.
Hi Karolina! That’s great to hear that you endorse this book as a student, too! My perspective as a teacher might sometimes be a little different.
