      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

It can be easy to associate studying as a chore and therefore unpleasant but if you find ways so that you can have fun whilst you are learning it can be motivating - for example - learn a new word every week and see how often you can fit it into conversation! - or watch a funny video, or read a funny facebook post and try to explain it somone, things like that
