4 Stages of Studying Abroad
Two minds are better than one (and 3 or 4 are even better!). If there’s something you don’t understand, someone else in the group may be able to explain it to you. Likewise, you may be able to help them on a subject they may not understand.
When it comes to study groups the more may not be the merrier. Try to limit the number of people in the group to ensure quality studying. 5 to 7 people should be more than enough to get through a variety of topics in a few hours.
If you find it hard to study in someone’s dorm or apartment, try a coffee shop or reserve a room in the library. If your professor gives out a study guide, break up those items evenly between the group members and have everyone write down everything they have from their notes and anything they can find in their textbook about those subjects.
Once everyone is done, you can share what notes you have and everyone can complete their study guide. Now is a perfect time for group members to ask questions about confusing topics. With everyone still together, you can cover those tricky concepts or come up with tricks to remember formulas or vocab words.
If the professor doesn’t provide a study guide, you can make your own! Using your textbook, write down the main concepts from each chapter and do the same step mentioned above. Not only will this make studying a whole lot easier, it’ll probably be a lot more fun! Stock up on snacks and coffee and you’ll be good to go.
