Hi

I was thinking in a good studying schedule to prepare me to take the Cambridge exams. After trying some sketches, I’ve come up with this studying schedule:
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
1 hour of reading-
Newspapers and magazines from internet 1 hour of reading (classic books) 1 hour of copying articles from internet to improve my writing skills 1 hour of reading on internet 1 hour of reading (classic books) Reading 2hours Reading
2hours
1 hour of studying grammar Half an hour of writing 1 hour of reading aloud to practice my speaking Half an hour of writing 1 hour of vocabulary listening listening
1 hour of studying vocabulary, idioms and phrasal verbs 1 hour of listening bbc four 1 hour of grammar 1 hour of listening bbc four 1 hour of reading aloud
Half an hour of writing 1 hour and a half of grammar 1 hour of vocabulary 1 hour of grammar 1 hour of grammar



I don’t know if this is a good plan. Is there anyone who can tell me if it is enough?

Thank you very much.

My first words about it.

Flo-Joe – that is the way the name of the site should be spelled.
Word – the name of the Microsoft Office program.

Newspaper and magazines on the Internet. "Reading on the Internet" is a very commom way, not that “from” is grammarly incorrect. Just less used or, say, less natural to me. In your second paragraph it came this way.



Monday
1 hour of reading-Newspapers and magazines from internet,1 hour of copying articles from internet to improve my writing skills; 1 hora de estudo de gramática. [1 hour of grammar studying.]
(Please try not switch from Portuguese to English, or flip-flop to and fro the languages. Choose one and stick to it.)


Thursday
BBC-4 or BBC Four...


Sábado:
Revisão do vocabulário aprendido no English Experts, flo-joe e jornais , leitura de clássicos da literatura inglesa.

Saturday:
Recap of the vocabulary learned from the English Experts, Flo-Joe and Newspapers. Reading of the classics of English language/classical Literature (of English).


Sunday
Leitura e listening. (?)
[This is what I had meant before...]
=================

All in all, our study plan seems fine to me. However, others are welcome to give their opinion, since I never sat such exams I can´t be positive and definite on such matters.
What I can say, for the time being is, it seems great.
By the way, your writing is good, you have great potential.

Hello Paulo,

I’m very grateful to you for having corrected my grammar mistakes. I am also obliged to you for drawing my attention to my carelessness when I mentioned the websites and the name of the Microsoft program.

I’m in the very bad habit of switch from Portuguese to English. I will try not to make this again.

Sunday:
Reading and listening on internet.
P.S. I hope you can correct my essays when I post them.

Thank you very much

O plano de estudos parece bom pra mim!

Apenas 2 recomendações:
Não foca em apenas 1 fonte de listening. E tenta usar o listening o maior tempo que tu puder, seja dirigindo, caminhando, limpando a casa, correndo na rua, enfim, o maior tempo possível que tu consiga ficar nessa "auto-imersão".

Tenta encontrar algum lugar para, de fato, praticar o speaking. Apenas ler em voz alta não é o suficiente! Algum lugar para bater papo, falar sobre coisas inesperadas, seja pessoalmente ou mesmo pela internet. Ter essa interação é fundamental.

Boa sorte ;)

TheBigSpire:

Obrigada pela dica. Vou tentar achar outras fontes na internet. Acho que você tem razão, é necessário diversificar.

Também tentarei procurar pessoas que falem inglês para praticar a fala (acho que esta tarefa será um pouco mais complicada, visto que não conheço ninguém).

Don´t sweat it, Ana. We all make mistakes.
The fact of acknowledging that, along with your interest and attitude towards learning, get you off to a good start. Congrats on that.
And count on us to make comments and give suggestions, to me that´s a good way to train my passable English, learn, communicate with others and make friends in the process. :lol:

While on the subject, good tip of yours, Big Spire.
Hello!
Do you know the Online English Practice from Cambridge?
You pay 6 pounds for a six months access.
You can practice you speaking by recording it and send to a teacher or to Cambridge.
They will listen to it and give you a feedback.

I hope you like my suggestion.

MENSAGEM PATROCINADA Há quanto tempo você estuda inglês? Já passou por sua cabeça que você pode estar estudando de uma forma que dá pouco ou quase nenhum resultado? Que tal fazer um intensivo de inglês de 180 dias e recuperar o tempo perdido? Em 6 meses você pode elevar o seu inglês a um novo patamar.

You're very disciplined, maybe you need more spontaneous than so mechanical. Remember that we think in Portuguese (latin form) so we need to learn more expressions (british and american expressions). To learn isn't do not repeat or tranlate (just my opinion).

P.S: I'm studying a lot too. :)
