Hi, I'm Randall. You know, for many students, they often feel like their learning has come to a dead end, and there are several things that students can do to really improve their learning, but it takes a new shift . . . a new perspective on how you view language learning.

First of all, keep in mind that you might not be able to do it alone. In other words, perhaps, you're in a classroom studying English, but you might need a specialized tutor to help you, maybe once or twice a week.

The other thing is I've found is that many students don't really have a study plan. In other words, they might be studying a few minutes a night, but they don't have things planned out, uh, this amount of time I'm going to be studying grammar, and this amount of time I'll study writing. So, you have to have some type of plan.

And the last thing is is that going out into the community and being involved in clubs, at local churches, or a homeless shelter will give you opportunities to expand and apply your language. In other words, learning is really tough; it takes a lot of work, and you have to really decide if you're going to break the ceiling of English. In other words, go beyond where you already are, and that takes a new strategy often for many students.
