A Japanese renowned brain scientist, Kenichiro Mogi once mentioned in his book that when your brain perceives that learning English is fun, your action of studying will be reinforced. In other words, when you give joy to your brain, that is a shortcut to make a progress. If you have a wonderful meal, you definitely want to eat it once again. I thought it makes sense.
Anyway, she finished reading it at the end of holiday and I'm very proud of her. If you accomplish reading a whole book, you will have a confidence which helps you study more. Even when you have some difficulties, that confidence gives you a strength not to give up.
