How Can You Learn Faster And Smarter?

Rapid Learning –

We come from a generation that framed learning with school. The understanding was: A building with classrooms and desks must have a teacher; If there was a book, it meant everything was ready for learning. This meant, in effect, that learning ended after school ended.

We are not strangers to this understanding; an understanding from us; In a country where reading books is prohibited and books are portrayed as bogeys, do people ever pick up a book after school is over?

How many times have most of us tried to learn something new?

We live in our periods; thanks to internet technologies! Learning channels have increased considerably without a school, a teacher, or even an educational document.

You learn the subject you want with e-learning systems without the need for a school or a teacher. Of course, learning hurts. Of course, struggling to master a new skill is certainly not as easy as walking in a park.

In every learning, there is “forget” on the other side of the coin. Most people have trouble remembering what they have learned, which inevitably makes their learning slow and painful.

However, this post is a true guide for those who love to learn. In this guide, you’ll find dozens of proven techniques to learn anything fast.

So read on and discover how to become a “super learner”


Why Don’t We Learn Fast?

If you observe people, you’ll see 3 specific reasons why they haven’t been able to learn quickly and efficiently despite going to so many schools.


I want to learn; But How Will I Learn?

When you feel the urge to learn, you often don’t know where to start learning.

For example, you may want to learn to play chess. But you may not know the best and easiest way to find out.

Imagine that you have found your way; you have tried to learn from multiple sources at the same time, such as strategy games, books, videos, and friends.

This is a messy start; because you are likely to have difficulty focusing. Inevitably you will be given contradictory advice, which is initially useless.

The other problem is that by doing resource research or asking friends for help, you may find that you are unable to gather the latest information on your topic. For example, some of your friends may be aware of a computer chess learning program offered online, while others may not.

The way to circumvent this problem is to follow reliable sources.


Struggle to Remember What You’ve Learned

Think for a moment about the time you were in school. In weeks, days, and even minutes, you gain so much information that it is doomed to be forgotten that you can’t escape it.

It is not surprising that people become more forgetful as they get older, which dampens their desire to learn something new.


Challenge to Put What You’ve Learned into Practice

Not applying knowledge is one of the most common reasons people fail to learn new things. Because they spend their time learning theoretical knowledge, but they can’t implement anything.

For example, consider how people learned to ride a bicycle for a moment.

In most cases, it will take the first steps with the advice of a parent, older sibling, or experienced friend.

However, only when you try to ride a bike for the first time does the real learning begin!

Learning is the same. With so many instructional videos on a particular topic you watch, you must struggle to make any real progress until you start doing what you want to learn.


Learn The Hard Thing Until You Get Depressed.  

The wrong teacher or course can dampen your enthusiasm for learning something new. This weakens solving an overly complex situation, especially in the beginning. Take, for example, learning a new language.

If all a language teacher did was force the student to learn grammar rules for weeks, you would undoubtedly stop learning.

However, if the same teacher changed his method and made learning the new language fun and immersive, you would not only keep learning but also increase your self-confidence. Then you can gradually learn the necessary grammar and vocabulary.


It Doesn’t Matter How Hard You Work

You may have thought to yourself at times: “No matter how hard I practice, I still don’t learn well, no matter how much I repeat what I’ve learned.”

This is a very common problem.

Unfortunately, many people make the problem worse by putting more effort and practice into what they are trying to learn.

Without an effective approach to learning, time and effort alone will not be enough for you to be successful.

The good news is that there are tried and tested ways to learn quickly and effectively. I call this approach ‘smart learning.'


Steps to Solve Learning

Now let’s see what all this is about and how you can start using it in your life now.


1-) Know Your Learning Styles

Different people learn differently. Some like to be shown how to do something, while others learn better by reading about their chosen topic. While Vanderbilt University recognizes over 70 different learning styles, there are 4 main styles you should be aware of:

Visual (Spatial) Learning Style

Visual learning style, watching videos; This style is best suited for people who like to see embedded presentations with pictures, charts, and graphs. One of the best examples of visual learning is students (e.g., photos, videos, or PowerPoint presentations).

Auditory (Auditory) Learning Style

The auditory learning style is best suited for people who like to listen to lectures and audiobooks. These students find it easy to learn what they hear. These are students who learn best by hearing (e.g., podcasts and audiobooks).

Reading/Writing Learning Style

The reading/writing learning style is suitable for people who, as you might think, enjoy reading and writing. This is because the words they read and write are easily engraved in their minds. These students learn best by reading and writing (for example, books, magazines, and websites).

Kinesthetic (Physical) Learning Style

The kinesthetic learning style is suitable for people who like to “practice”. Students learn best by moving and doing (for example, learning to read, learning to drive, and using it).


2-) Know the 3 Stages of Learning

From the moment we are born, we learn new things every day; we use at least one of the three stages of learning to think consciously and gain knowledge and skills. The 3 stages of learning are:

Stage 1: Cognitive Learning

This learning style encourages students to use their brains more effectively by fully engaging them in the learning process. For example, a student learning to dance needs to know what his movements are during the dance and tell him what to do.

Stage 2: Associative Learning

This learning style happens when we connect two related-unrelated pieces of information (for example, associating the sound with the picture of the owner of the sound in our brain) through a mental process in our brain. The dancer-student now begins to understand the skills they need and to show some consistency in their performance.

Stage 3: Autonomous Learning

This learning style allows students to acquire knowledge through independent efforts and develop the ability to question and evaluate without the need for teachers and mentors. The student now becomes a competent dancer (for example) and can perform their skills accurately and consistently. They can also concentrate on complex tasks and adapt their performance as needed.


3-) Active learning

Once you’ve decided what you want to learn, explored your learning style, and understood the different learning stages, you’re ready to move on to active learning.

Here you engage in both practical and theoretical learning; which puts you in the best possible position to learn quickly and successfully. To illustrate this process at work, let’s give an example of playing the drums (wedding drumming), which is one of the excluded professions in our society:

You want to learn to “play the drums” for fun or a potential career, maybe both!

Whether you prefer to work with a personal drum teacher or learn from books and videos; The key is to have a drum kit so you can regularly practice and improve your drumming skills. This set can be in your home or in a rehearsal space that you can access once or twice a week.

Theory + practical application = Skill… The combination of theory and practice is a powerful combination that will help you improve your skills and knowledge in the shortest possible time, such as playing an instrument, speaking a new language, coding or swimming.

Many people receive training through YouTube channels. With the advent of such online courses, many people today choose self-learning. Such choices are economical.

In other words, instead of having to go to a certain place at a certain time, you have the opportunity to learn immediately whenever and wherever you want. This gives you the freedom to learn new things without affecting your existing work and social programs.

If you choose to self-learn, at least try to find a knowledgeable friend with whom you can build friendships to make sure you’re on the right track. For example, if you are considering taking an online English course; Try to use your English-speaking friends to test your speaking skills.
