Chigusa: Alright, listeners.
Peter: Are you an active learner or a passive learner?
Chigusa: Do you even know?
Peter: Here’s the difference.
Chigusa: ‘Active learning’ means you’re actively engaging with learning material and focusing on it.
Peter: For example, you’re reading in your target language...
Chigusa: ...you’re looking up words, you’re translating ...
Peter: ...you’re memorizing phrases or you’re speaking out loud.
Chigusa: So, you’re focused on what you’re learning. Nothing else.
Peter: Passive learning is different. It requires less concentration.
Chigusa: Yeah, it’s usually done when you’re doing something else...
Peter: ...for example, doing chores, driving to work or taking the train.
Chigusa: You could be listening to an audio lesson or watching a video lesson...
Peter: But, the difference is, you’re not focused on picking apart every single word.
Chigusa: You’re just passively taking the language in.
Peter: So listeners, how do you learn?
Chigusa: Are you actively engaged or do you passively learn on the go? Or do you mix it up?
Peter: Let us know in the comments.
Chigusa: Now, here’s how you can learn both ways with our lessons.
Peter: If you’re a passive learner...
Chigusa: ...if you’re on the go and can’t really pay too much attention...
Peter: Just play any audio or video lesson. It’s as easy as that.
Chigusa: You can learn on the go with our FREE Innovative Language 101 App...
Peter: ...for the Android, iPhone and iPad.
Chigusa: Now, if you want to passively learn words and phrases....
Peter: ...then check out our brand new Vocabulary Slideshow.
Chigusa: This Premium study tool is available on every lesson. Just press play...
Peter: ...and sit back and review the words. You can even put the slideshow on loop...
Chigusa: ..and immerse yourself in the language. With every slide, you get the word...
Peter: ...the audio pronunciation, the translation...
Chigusa: ...and sample sentences.
Peter: Now, If you’re an active learner, here are 5 tactics you can use right now.
Chigusa: Number 1 - Listen or watch a lesson and... read along with the translations.
Peter: You get complete translations in the lesson notes and the line-by-line dialogue.
Chigusa: This will make your reading, comprehension and listening skills skyrocket.
Peter: The best part is, you’ll understand every single word. The translations are right in front of you.
Chigusa: Number 2 - Repeat the lesson dialogue as you hear it.
Peter: This is called shadowing and it will boost your speaking skills... guaranteed.
Chigusa: Just repeat the lines that you hear until you can speak with confidence.
Peter: To make it even easier, you also get the lines with the dialogue study tool...
Chigusa: ...and the lesson notes for every lesson.
Peter: ...so you can read them out loud as you hear them in the lesson.
Chigusa: Number 3 - Record yourself with our voice recorder in the dialogue study tool...
Peter: ...to perfect your pronunciation and see how close you are to a native speaker.
Chigusa: Number 4 - If you want to boost your vocabulary...
Peter: ..study words with our smart flashcards.
Chigusa: They sort the words for you. So, you get the harder words more often....
Peter: ...until you master them. And the easy ones show up now and then to refresh your memory.
Chigusa: And Number 5 – Ask questions! Leave a comment in the comment section..
Peter: Or if you’re a Premium PLUS user, you get your very own teacher...
Chigusa: ...and you can ask them to review and correct your writing and speaking...
Peter: You can also ask for learning advice and get all of your questions answered.
Chigusa: Listeners, both are great ways to learn, depending on your situation.
Peter: If you have some quiet time and can focus, go for active learning.
Chigusa: If you’re on the go or multi-tasking, passive learning is the way to go.
Peter: Whichever your style is...
Chigusa: you can apply both with our language learning program.

How do you learn Thai? Do you actively listen, write down, read and engage with the language? Do you passively listen on the go?
