Connecting your learning to your life

myStudy is an additional hour of study for all General English daytime students. After your main classes finish, you can choose which myStudy elective you would like to attend from 1pm to 2pm. myStudy is supervised by an English teacher who can help you with your individual learning goals and teach you study skills so you are able to learn independently, both during and after your course ends.

Why should you do myStudy?

You and your classmates are all studying English, but you are all different. You have different learning needs, priorities and interests.

myStudy is all about you. It is a place where you can take control of your learning and focus on what you need (or want) to practise. In addition to practising reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills, you can study grammar, vocabulary and also work on your pronunciation.

Some of the benefits of myStudy are:

  •  In class, everybody does the same thing at the same time. In myStudy, you can focus on your individual priorities: weak areas, things you are interested in, or things you especially need.
  •  When you take control of your learning, your English skills improve faster. myStudy gives you this opportunity.
  •  myStudy is 100 percent flexible. You can do whatever you choose each day.

You can also make one-to-one appointments with your teacher during the myStudy hour. They will help you with your course progress, give you individual study advice and help you choose the best myStudy electives for your learning needs.

In the computer lab

You can maximise your learning with online English study in the computer lab at your school. There are lots of fun things to do online to practise and improve your English skills. Here are some ideas:

  • Use myStudy space to connect with other students at your school, and practise the skills you are learning in class with multimedia materials .
  • Visit other English language learning websites: look for the ‘Navitas internet links’ icon on the desktop.
  • Find the meaning of new words you find on the internet in our online dictionary and listen to their pronunciation.
  • Use the English language learning software on all our computers: try ‘Issues in English’ and ‘Tense busters’ to practise your language skills and grammar.

Even everyday activities can develop your language skills. Try doing some of these activities (in English, of course!):

  • watch YouTube videos
  • listen to or stream audio
  • chat with your friends on Messenger
  • send emails
  • browse English-language websites you are interested in.
