Yesterday I wrote about 'methods' in the context of IELTS preparation and language learning. As a teacher and learner, I'm fascinated by the topic of how we learn, the methods that we use, and the path to mastery in any domain.
So, I'd like to ask you about this topic. What do you feel that you've mastered, or what are you trying to master? What methods did you use, or are you using? Have you ever known or met someone who is a true master of something (perhaps at world-class level)? How did they achieve this?
Note: You don't need to master the English language in order to pass the IELTS test, so don't worry if 'mastery of English' is not your objective.
PS. Ignore this lesson if it doesn't interest you. We'll return to normal IELTS practice tomorrow!
