Englische Satzanfänge, die immer funktionieren

Fragst du dich manchmal, wie es die anderen schaffen, immer wieder Topnoten zu schreiben, obwohl sie angeblich weniger lernen als du?

Wenn das stimmt, dann lernen sie wenig aber das, was sie lernen, können sie in  jeder Arbeit anwenden.

Das bedeutet: Sie stecken wenig Energie hinein und ziehen viel heraus!

Das nenne ich effizientes Arbeiten!

Das Gute für dich:

Du kannst das auch!

Wenn du weißt, WAS du lernen musst, sprich: In welche Energie du investieren sollst.

Mit der folgenden Liste zu möglichen Satzanfängen im englischen Text, schreibst du garantiert die nächste Klausur besser.

Eines musst du aber tun:

Falls dir die Konstruktionen unbekannt sind oder du sie vergessen hast: Lerne sie auswendig!

Soviel Energie muss sein 😉
