Olly's Top Resources For Learning:
  • Miri

    Hi Olly, I don’t like to put small goals to myself, not sure why, but it never worked for me, so what I usually do to see if I had some progress done, is listen or read to stuff I already read/listened to.
    I remember the general level of my understanding from before and can see that I understand more.
    Thanks for the advice 🙂

    • Hi Miri – that’s a great thing to do! It’s very satisfying when you look back at something that used to be really hard, and suddenly discover you can understand it all!

    • Odette C.

      I like to look over old things I wrote and be able to catch all these mistakes. The fact that I can see things I did wrong shows I’ve learned more since then!
