Posted October 06, 2018 18:37:10When you’re looking for a way to improve your English skills, you’re going to need to learn to take more time to reflect and think about what you’re saying.
That’s the message from the University of Sydney, where Professor Mark Gollop is leading a new study into the importance of time and how we think.
It’s part of a wider Australian Conversation initiative which aims to help Australian kids develop their English.
The study is part of an effort to make learning more relevant to a global audience.
“The problem is we are just not using it, and it’s really, really, pretty frustrating,” said Professor Gollos study co-author Dr Kate Coyle, who works with the school’s English program.
When it comes to time, we’re all thinking in terms of how much time we have left, she said.
“We spend an enormous amount of time on our phones and tablets, and that’s when we forget about the fact that time is real.
What we’re trying to do is get back to being more like an Australian.”
Time is also the focus of the Conversation, a multi-institution effort by the University and the Australian Government to engage with students about their needs in learning English.
The study also looked at the use of social media and technology in the classroom, and found it was very helpful to have time to think about and reflect on what you are saying.
Students who spent time using their social media accounts were able to work better on some of the most important aspects of their language and had a higher success rate at getting their students to think and act differently when they need to talk, write and talk.
The University of NSW, which partnered with the Australian Federal Government to produce the study, said it was one of the first studies to look at time as a factor in learning a language.
“The study found that students who spent more time in the context of a conversation had better scores on many vocabulary-related tasks, which are critical for understanding the language,” Professor Golls said.
He said the research found that the more time students spent with the conversation in the language, the more they were able and comfortable to reflect on their words.
There are also other studies that have found that talking time also helps students in their everyday life, said Professor Coyle.
“It’s a very important skill for our students to develop, and we’re really hoping that we can use this time to develop it as well.”
