Study Tips For New Frenchies

Blog Post Tips Banner

Hey there soon-to-be Frenchie! We cannot wait to welcome you with open arms onto campus! Here at the French we like to be prepared so we thought we would share some study tips to take with you throughout your course. Our students have found these to be very useful and we hope these will inspire you as you approach the commencement of your course.

Create a timetable

One of the first things you should do to create good study habits is to create a timetable.  This will help you budget your time wisely, ensuring that you cover all the topics you need to study for.  Don’t forget to schedule breaks as you need enough time to rest and assimilate the knowledge you’ve acquired.

Study in 20-50 minute sessions

Many studies have shown that in order to get the best results, you should study in 20-50 minute blocks. Make sure you take 5-10 minute breaks after each study period and do something that will relax you and help you feel recharged, so you can get back to studying in a good mood.

Make yourself a study area

Always look for a good study spot that will help you concentrate and try to eliminate all distractions from that environment. Make sure the area makes you feel comfortable, is quiet and clean. Consider going to the public library if you don’t have this type of space at home.

Set up a study group

If you want to learn how to study in a more efficient way, you could set up a study group that will allow you to share notes, thoughts and ideas that will help you better understand the material you have to learn for your exams.

Take notes

Always take notes, whether in class when your teacher is explaining something or at home when you are learning by yourself. By doing this, you will memorise new information, comprehension will increase, and you will be able to revise your notes before an exam.   ​

Reward yourself

Whatever your guilty pleasure is, make sure that after a good study session is complete, take a break and enjoy some bad TV or a relaxing aromatherapy bath with a good book.

Of course, life isn’t ALL about study!
