    The Cult of Learning 2: Three Myths of Learning

    The Cult of Learning 2: Three Myths of Learning

    /CULT/K^LT/A fashionable belief, idea, or attitude that influences people’s lives/The cult of learning encourages people to find and pursue what they are passionate about/

    *”The Cult of Learning” are episodes for learners of languages. These episodes will discuss tools and strategies for learning and provide opportunities for effective listening practice. These episodes are also part of the Learn YOUR English Learner Membership Community.
    In episode two, Mike and Leo talk about myths around learning. There are many beliefs about how people learn in the 21st Century - especially about how people learn languages - that are not actually true. 
    The guys talk about three of them:
    Myth 1: We can only learn in the classroom 
    Myth 2: We can only learn from a textbook
    Myth 3: We can only learn with a teacher
    At the end of the first segment, Mike and Leo assign a reflection task. Listen for that and let us know your answers!
    For LYE Members: All of our members will be discussing this episode in our classes this month and performing learning activities to achieve their language goals.

    The Cult of Learning 1: Three Rules of Learning

    *”The Cult of Learning” are episodes for learners of languages. These episodes will discuss tools and strategies for learning and provide opportunities for effective listening practice. These episodes are also part of the Learn YOUR English Learner Membership Community.
    In Teacher Talking Time’s first episode for learners, Mike and Leo introduce the Cult of Learning podcast, discuss why it’s called “The Cult of Learning,” what “Learn YOUR English” really means, and what we hope to accomplish by helping people learn the language that’s important to them.
    This episode is all about learning. Mike and Leo go over the three most important rules for learning:

    Effectiveness (the what)


    Adherence (the why)


    Efficiency (the how)

    They also talk about how languages are not taught but learned, discuss several common myths about language learning, and why you shouldn’t say “sayonara” in Japanese.
