Try to find a positive aspect to studying...

Why not watch your favourite film in English and write down some useful words or phrases that you want to remember.

Meet friends and study English together. You can repeat your English vocabulary, do your homework together and help each other with English grammar. Studying with friends simply is much more fun.
It’s also a good oportunity to exchange ideas on studying in general. Maybe your friends have found out about a good way of studying more effectively. Or, who knows, maybe you can advise your friends on this?
