To get good at anything you must practice.
The most effective way to improve is through deliberate practice. It can be thought of as “actively practicing using your head”. It is a type of practice where you have a clear goal and receive rapid and intense feedback.
ChatGPT offers a brilliant way to deliberately practice a language. Here are some tips!
Prompt: Hi I’m revising my french grammar and want to practice. Could you provide me with 5 practice questions that I can solve and you correct?
Instantly, I got a small language test. Then, I could write out my answers in the following format:
Q1: answer Q2: answer …
Then, I got instant feedback on what I did right or wrong.
I could then ask about a specific question to get more context and brush up my grammar.
And here is another example:
Prompt: Merci! Maintenant, je veux pratiquer écriver un peu. Est-ce que vous pouvez me poser un question pour que je réponde, et puis vous pouvez me corriger mon écriture?
The best thing however was doing interactive writing. I asked ChatGPT to give me a small writing prompt. Then, I answered with a small text that ChatGPT then corrected for me!
Putting the final version into Reverso for checking, it found no errors on the ChatGPT text:
This is deliberate practice at play! You can make ChatGPT help you study your weaknesses and harness it powers to become better at your language!
