Some Great Ways to Start the School Year!

Welcome back! I hope you had a great holiday and are ready to start work! Here are some ideas to help you make the best possible start to the year!

  1. Get prepared! – Buy plenty of paper and fill up your pencil case! For ring binders I suggest you wait until you know what colour your coursebook will be, it’s much easier to bring the right binder if it’s the same colour as your book, DO NOT buy 10 binders the same colour!!

2. Start using your brain again! Read a book (yes a book!!😳) Play quizlet to revise your vocab,etc.

3. Try and get a good night’s sleep the night before class starts – but don’t panic that you can’t sleep, one short night won’t matter if you are well rested from the holidays, and a couple of days at school will help you sleep earlier pretty quickly!

4. Read this article over on my other website. This new site is still under construction, but you will find lots of information on Learning Strategies and Language Coaching that will help you learn even better than before!
