Welcome back from Golden Week. We start a very intensive period of English study in classes until the end of July. Now is the time to build good habits

Before you start, though, you should look at yourself. “Know Yourself” was first written in ancient Greece, about 3,000 years ago, and has become very popular, because it is the key to success. These days, you can even do better that to “Know Yourself”, you can measure yourself. There are many ways you can measure your daily language learning. Programs like Newsela and Xreading have measurement built in. Like FitBit exercise checkers, they see what you actually read. This is called “Quantified Self.” When you start to measure yourself, you can understand yourself better.
