Why Can’t Learning Be Fun?

Why can’t learning be fun? When I look back at my K-12 and college days, I think about a lot of sleepy, boring classes. At the same time, I think about some of the great things that I have learned and creative ways in which they have been taught. There have been plenty of fun games that have reinforced lessons learned.

I’m not saying that education is going to be a party all the time. Sometimes it’s going to be boring and you have to power through and do the best you can. Here at LearnALanguage.com we aim to keep you awake, alert, having fun and learning as much as possible. We don’t want you to be saying ‘how boring’ in Italian out loud when you are learning Italian. The Learning Lounge, Memory Machine and Lingo Dingo are fun games (we hope you think so too) that reinforce vocabulary and phrases you are learning.

If you don’t have a fun game to help you review what you are learning, give yourself fun rewards for being awesome to help motivate you to power through the learning process. In our office, some of my co-workers and I set goals to arrive to work at certain times of the day. Whoever arrived late the most this week had to listen to the Hannah Montana Pandora station for 1 hour at work and share it on their personal Facebook and Twitter pages. That lucky person was me.

    Great post. That’s absolutely the best part about learning a language is having fun. Learning should never be chore. Some people might get bored because of the way they go about doing it. But I think that if you are able to travel & connect with natives that speak the language, this will definitely boost a person’s learning experience & make it more interesting to learn.

    yeah learning is boring for the most times

    Having fun and taking breaks while learning can bring really impressive improvement in results.

    Some people really get it wrong by sitting 10 hours a day in front of a book. Their effective learning was actually 4-5 hours

    Terrific post that I absolutely agree with 100%. This is particularly true when learning music (which is a form of language after a fashion) with younger children especially (4-6) they assimilate knowledge and skills far faster if it is both a) fun and b) conveyed in a form that is fun to engage with.

    Now i can agree with you but just particularly because others they learn about language after some fun.

    It’s true and most of the time learning is not fun… nonetheless it depends on how the teacher motivates his/her learner and what are diverse techniques to make learning a very significant topic to learn.. These days there are many ways to acquire learning with fun…..

    First of all I would like to say wonderful
    blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
