I think that it's really good idea because I have a big problem with wasting my time. For example, I do my homework and hear a ring of message. I take my phone and look check messages, but I've already forgotten about my homework. But with the Pomodoro Technique it won't be a problem.

I think its a good idea , it is really traditional and thats good for us to disconnect a little bit of our networks and focus on studying.We should all try it personally but in this times we have more apps that are like a little bit more effective in my opinion because they put you a time to study and block any other apps to you to not to get distracted

I think this technique sounds like a good idea for persons who have some difficult to organize their times to work. So maybe it will be a exemple solution for them. But also, I think it can be a worse technique for persons who have their plan, schedule so it's meaning is they know how they must organize their times efficiently. Because Pomodoro technique is a rule already made by someone, not themselves.

Yes, I do. I use a technique very similar to this but without using a timer. I can't wait to try it!

It's sound like a good idea, but where can I find that. In my place, there isn't anything like that. : <

The transcript has some mistakes.
The below, the first line is real text in the transcript and the second one is what it really is on the audio:

- Welcome, Peter.
- So Peter, welcome to the studio.

- Most people have timers on their phones these days, can you use that?
- Most people have timers on their phones these days, COULD you use that?

- You could, but the danger is that then you check messages on your phone...
- You could, but the danger is that then you CAN check messages on your phone...

Hi popovserhii. Oh yes, you're right! I'm not sure what happened there but thank you very much for pointing that out. Our transcripts should be exactly what they say in the audio. I will update that and make sure it is all correct. Well done for noticing that and I hope you're enjoying LearnEnglish Teens!  Best wishes, Jo

Ok I agree with this idea, but I have my own method how to organize time, I like to play online games in the evenings, so I decided to wake up earlier that I can, so I have more spare time in evening.

It's for people who learn non-stop. I know people like that. In this case the pomodoro would tell them "relax" and take a short break. And an advise about to keep off your "black mirror" is definitely useful.

Not too good, actually. Too many breaks ruins your schedule. I tried it and could not finish the Geography syllabus. It is another thing that I did score 88 on 100. But I fell it is safe to keep away from this technique just like I stay away from tomatoes. Or Pomodoros in Italian.

I prepared my Chemistry Book test using the technique and it was quite helpful.
(It's another thing, that I mostly ran out of time. :D)

i don't think that it is a good idea because your self organising time is to work and as you finish you take breaks to your self this is my opinion because i didn't like the pomodoro
