Studying and Working with the Pomodoro Technicque

A Matter of Space

It often happens that we need our own space to improve our skills in a foreign language, but we often underestimate that carving out a time slot could be the key to achieving our goal.

The Right Method

One method that can be surprisingly effective is the Pomodoro Technique (Pomodoro in Italian means tomato and the concept spins around the fact that you cut tomatoes in smaller segments).

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management strategy based on breaks, which can be used when studying a foreign language. The method is simple: work for 25 minutes and then take a 5-minute break. After four Pomodoros, or work sessions, take a longer break of 15-20 minutes.

This technique is very useful to maintain both concentration and motivation. Knowing that you only have to work for 25 minutes makes it much easier to complete the task at hand. Additionally, by taking regular breaks and completing one session each time, you will also find that motivation levels remain high throughout the work period.

Dividing Work into Sessions

This technique can also be used to break down larger tasks into smaller and more manageable parts. For instance, if you have the goal of reading a chapter of a book every day, you can use the Pomodoro Technique to divide it into 25-minute sessions.

Obviously, this technique is very valuable for studying anything, so if you feel that your concentration is decreasing, try the Pomodoro Technique!
