I would like to share learning-related tips and tricks for lifelong learners

1.) Always write your notes with pen and paper as it speeds up the process of learning and helps to retain the information for long.

2.) Develop the essential skills required for effective notes taking. Notes taking is an art, which if practiced properly can help to get the best notes in the shortest form that ultimately helps to get success in exams.

3.) Use some mnemonic devices: Mnemonic devices are just the patterns of sounds, ideas, letters, etc. that helps to associate some idea with that of the other to retain the information for long.

4.) Go for distributed learning instead of whole learning together. Study in blocks of time. This is how to study fast and effectively.

5.) Change your method of learning to suit the changing needs. Learning of English demands a different approach, while the study of Math demands differently. Similarly, one concept of English wants you to learn it in a different way than that of the other. So change your methods of learning. Try to find methods which ease the process of learning for you.

6.) Take a nap or small breaks in between the blocks of study.

Who do not understand how to conclude an essay without sounding abrupt. Even though the conclusion is supposed to be short and sweet, it is an underrated part of an essay, and most of the students seem to be ignorant of how they should end an essay.

You need to persuade the reader with your arguments and ideas put forward by you in the essay and make your readers care about your ideas.

The majority of the students fail to understand is the fact that a proper link between the introduction and the conclusion of an essay can prove to be extremely fruitful.

If you have stated an idea in the intro, you can add a line or two elaborating that point in the conclusion. Expand the theme that you introduced in the intro without making it seem like you are merely repeating a certain fact to fill up pages.

10 steps to effective listening


Here are the ten steps that can help you to have effective listening:

1.) Face the speaker and always maintain eye contact.

2.) Pay attention, but be relaxed.

3.) Have an open mind and listen to them without judging them.

4.) Carefully listen to the words and try to understand what the speaker is saying.

5.) Never interrupt the speaker, nor impose your thinking on them.

6.) When the speaker takes a pause only then ask a question.

7.) Never ask things unnecessarily, only ask to have a better understanding.

8.) Try to feel what the speaker is feeling and communicating.

9.) Try to give simple and regular feedback to the speaker.

10.) Focus on non-verbal cues like facial expressions and gestures.

How many types of listening skills


Basically, there are two types of listening skills:

Discriminative listening

This type of listening is developed in the initial stages. This is the most basic kind of listening and does not require any effort as such in understanding the meaning of words or the phrases but just different sounds are produced.

For example, in early childhood, a distinction can be made between different sounds that get improved as the child grows up. As we move from childhood towards adulthood this distinction increases with the capacity to distinguish between different sounds.

Comprehensive Listening

Comprehensive listening is a broad term and it basically includes understanding the messages being communicated to the other person. It is also fundamental to all listening sub-categories.

For a person to develop comprehensive listening the listener first has to have an appropriate vocabulary and other language skills. This kind of listening gets more complex as the same message given to two people might result in understanding it with different meanings.

Comprehensive listening is also complimented by sub-messages through non-verbal communication like the tone of the voice, body language, and gestures. This kind of non-verbal signals can help immensely in communication and comprehension but might also confuse and might lead to misunderstanding.

Smart study

Choose your subjects of interest, understand that not all the assignments and classes will be equally interesting.
