Learner’s blog

20 Apr

When I was a teacher, I used to say on and on that my students should write as way of improving their language skills. That is because when you are writing, you get plenty of time to plan your “speech”. Fair enough time to come back and review, redo, and check back, how your production was done.

In the last three years, I have learned to speak Swedish fair enough to let me understood as well as comprehending people and texts. However, despite I write pretty well e-mails, I do not feel comfortable in writing an article or a academic paper.  That’s why, some hours ago I had an insight and planned blogging also in Swedish as a way of practicing my writing skills in this language (the result).

“Our lives with all their miracles and wonders are merely a discontinuous string of incidents – until we create the narrative that gives them meaning”Arlene Goldbard

So, if you are in a educational field or learning to do something (paint, physics, handcraft) try to use blogging as an additional tool/ source of  knowledge and practice!

If your learning has nothing to do with language, blogging might help you figure out your strengths and debilities. As well as challenge you to have something new periodically to post. As an outcome of your work, sure you shall get feedback (not so often) about your practices. Try it out!
