Which would you rather spend two hours doing:
1. listening to music, and looking up the lyrics to find out what they mean, before writing a diary entry about them
2. listening to the news, and reading an article from a test, before writing an essay about them?
I think if you're interested in the material you're studying, it really lets you study better - and study more, without feeling tired.
If you're interested, I have time available, and I can help you find some music or books that would really stimulate your imagination! Please check out my profile, and sign up for a trial lesson where we can talk about what you're interested in.
