Tips for a successful summer
Learning during the summer holidays
You also need to rest and take advantage of your vacation to be in good shape next year. But you also need to revise so that you don’t forget what you did during your school year.
So how do you do it?
It is important to give yourself a month to enjoy your vacation, to rest.
This will allow you to realize which lessons you have learned well, which ones you have forgotten or which you did not understand. In order for these weeks of rest to be beneficial to you, you must schedule them in advance. This way, you won’t feel guilty about not working.
Resume work gradually, and get organized
In August, the most important thing is to get organized.
We advise you to make a list with bullet points with your parents’ help. Then, you draft a schedule where you write down what you are going to work on day by day. With this method, you can really take advantage of the times when you are not working because you don’t think about the work, you know that everything will be done in time. This is a great feeling and allows you to enjoy your summer more!
Btw: No more than one hour a day!
Easing into your schedule
The last week of August, you can study a little more: 20-30 minutes, every morning.
During this week, it is also important that you start setting an alarm clock if you didn’t before. You don’t have to get up at 6am, but try to go to bed earlier and wake up earlier than you did during the last few weeks. This will allow you to gradually get back into a healthy rhythm for September.
