Yes, in my opinion it's a technique that it's really useful. I tried it once and work. I continue practicing this technique just that in longer periods of time and less breaks.

I think the Pomodoro Technique sounds like a good idea. It is an incredible training exercise for your concentration. The Pomodoro technique allows you to calculate the value of your time, plan your Pomodoro sessions accordingly, and then work to that plan to deliver a balanced outcome. This technique increases focus immensely when prescribed to correctly. It is also an effective way to achieve a balance between quantity and quality, and all you have to do is focus for 25 minutes at a time.

I research for a long time trying to find a good study method and I think for me pomodoro technique isn't the best method. When I study in a really focused way certain times I don't want to break my concentration with a pause, and other times when I feel distracted or tired I wanna have the break before the scheduled time. So for me the best method is to have a "time bank" where you have all your "rest minutes" for e.g. 20 minutes for two hours of studying, and basically you can use your 20 minutes of break when you want. Is a simple but effective method: really flexible and adaptable. You put 20 minutes on your timer and when you start your "rest time" you play your timer.

I have never heard the Pomodoro Technique but when I learned, I was very interested! As soon as possible, I am thinking of using this technique.

Personally, for the person who don't know how to organize their time, the pomodoro technique can help them work effectively and avoid wasting time. But in other way I think it not a good idea for the people who already know how to organize their time. So if they want to work more than twenty-five minute before to stop work for 5 minute the pomodoro is not useful.

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!

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.
