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 and you’re really into it.
Peter: Exactly. Now, passive learning is different. It requires less concentration.
Chigusa: And, 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 word.
Chigusa: You’re just passively taking the language in.
Peter: Chigusa, what about you? How do you learn?
Chigusa: Hmm, I... listen to music?
Peter: So, that makes you a passive learner? And 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. Now, here’s how you can learn both ways...
Chigusa: ...with our lessons.
Peter: If you’re a passive learner, say you’re always on the go:
Chigusa:...then here are 4 simple tactics you can apply right now.
Peter: One: Press play on a lesson and just listen...or watch.
Chigusa: Just like you would, with YouTube.
Peter: It’s as simple as that. So, if you’re at home, with your computer on...
Chigusa: ...press play on a lesson and take it in.
Peter: Two: Now, if you’re outside, if you’re going to the store, or commuting...
Chigusa: You can learn with our FREE Innovative Language 101 App...
Peter: ...for the Android, iPhone and iPad. Again, open a lesson, press play and that’s it.
Chigusa: Three: If you want to passively review words and phrases....
Peter: ...then check out the Vocabulary Slideshow tool.
Chigusa: This Premium study tool is available on every lesson and Vocab List. Just press play...
Peter: ...and with every slide, you get the word...
Chigusa: ...the audio pronunciation, the translation, and sample sentences.
Peter: You can even put the slideshow on loop and immerse yourself that way.
Chigusa: ...and Four: If you have an Amazon Echo device...
Peter: ...then you can immerse yourself with daily audio lessons...
Chigusa: ...or you can learn with the quick word of the day
Peter: You can just play a lesson and keep it in the background while you’re at home.
Chigusa: Just look for Daily Dose by Innovative Language on the Amazon Skill Store.
Peter: ...and download it for free
Chigusa: Now, if you’re an active learner, if you have some time to concentrate...
Peter: 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 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 in the dialogue study tool...
Chigusa: ...and in the lesson notes...
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 and practice! Leave a comment in the comment section.
Peter: 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: Okay Peter, both are great ways to learn... but which one is best?
Peter: Well...that depends on you.
Chigusa: So, if you have some quiet time to focus, active learning is best.
Peter: Exactly. But, If you’re on the train and you’re multi-tasking...
Chigusa: ...then passive learning is the better option.
Peter: Listeners, whichever your style is...
Chigusa: ...you can apply both with our language learning program.
Peter: And…
