Benefits of learning on the go
- Download lessons in advance to learn a language anytime - even when you don't have an internet connection.
- Review your vocabulary while you're on the bus or tube. Repeat the words you've already learnt or practice the new ones.
- It's your chance to get corrections from native speakers. When you have a spare minute, complete as many exercises as possible and improve your language skills.
Plan your time
Make sure you have a schedule for learning a language. By setting up half an hour each day (or at least 10 mins), you will make progress much faster and see the results.
Set yourself a target
By setting targets, you can easily track your progress. For example, you want to finish A1 by next month or you promise to learn 100 new words in 2 weeks.
Don't forget to look through the content you've already learnt. Repeat words, use them as many times as possible and try to form new sentences with them.
Easy and fun
Explore a variety of situations when you could use the busuu app:

Find your perfect situation!
Download as many dictionaries as possible so you can get more exposure to different words, phrases and idioms (examples in context or topic-specific vocabulary).
Special calendars, flashcard apps and a timer could motivate you to learn faster and more efficiently. Don't forget to turn on push notifications and be focused!
Schedule 10 minutes a day in your calendar (or one hour per week) and follow the plan. This will motivate you to keep learning. Try not to miss your study times.
