"Summer Learning Loss" or "Summer Slide" are terms that us teachers use to describe the decline in recall and skills that happens during summer breaks.
And it makes sense, doesn't it?
Your brain will begin to dump information and memories it doesn't think it needs when you don't continuously access them.
Even worse? Adult learners experience more extreme summer learning loss than kids do.
Many of our adult students find themselves losing their hard earned fluency skills when they take a break of 3-12 weeks during the warmer months.
If you were on a roll with your Spanish fluency progress in the colder months, do not stop now!
