Carol was a good student. She wrote everything her teacher said in her notebook. However, Carol had a problem. When she tried to speak English at meetings, words wouldn’t come to her mind. I asked her how she studied, and she explained that she memorised expressions from a list but never practised them. I reminded Carol that you don’t really know a concept until you’ve actually learnt how to use it and advised her to change the way she learnt. How could she do that? Read on to find out.
