Peter:
Alright, how do you stay motivated...
Becky:
....when learning a language?
Peter:
Becky, this is a great question, because motivation plays a huge role in language learning success.
Becky:
So, listeners, we asked our high-level Premium and Premium PLUS members....
Peter:
....for their tried and tested techniques. You’ll find out what worked for them.
Becky:
Here are the top 10 ways to stay motivated!
Peter:
Number one: Track and see your learning progress...
Becky:
....with the Dashboard.
Peter:
Listeners, there’s nothing better than seeing your progress first-hand.
Becky:
It’s like stepping on a scale and seeing that you’ve lost weight, or seeing muscles in the mirror after working out!
Peter:
With the Dashboard, you can see how many lessons...
Becky:
...and how much of the language you’ve mastered thus far.
Peter:
Be sure to review the progress you’ve made with the Dashboard on the site.
Becky:
Number 2: Listeners, use Daily Dose of Language app.
Peter:
With this, you get free, daily mini-lessons... but that’s not all.
Becky:
That’s right. You stay on track because this app actually sends you reminders...
Peter:
...every single day. So what happens is, you build successful study habits..
Becky:
...and you don’t need to worry about how or what to study...
Peter:
...all you have to do is one easy lesson a day. And it takes a minute.
Becky:
Okay, Number 3: Learn with somebody better than you.
Peter:
A tutor, a friend.....
Becky:
And you can even learn with your own teacher with a Premium PLUS subscription...
Peter:
Simply having someone better than you by your side....
Becky:
...is enough to help you improve and motivate you. It’s like having a coach.
Peter:
Number 4: Set a small, measurable goal...
Becky:
...like being able speak 5 minutes of conversation by the end of next month.
Peter:
Most people give up because they have a vague goal like “I want to be fluent” that they don’t know how to reach.
Becky:
But if you aim small and make it measurable...
Peter:
You’re guaranteed to reach it! And that will give you more drive to keep going.
Becky:
Number 5: Watch movies and TV shows in your target language.
Peter:
First of all, we recommend doing this because it’s fun.
Becky:
But more importantly, when you understand what you hear...
Peter:
...That’s a clear sign of progress and you will feel good about it.
Becky:
Number 6: This is similar to five –
Peter:
Listen to music in your target language.
Becky:
It’s fun, it’s great passive learning, and it’s immersive. And music is very memorable.
Peter:
Great point, Becky. This means that you’ll remember the lyrics and start understanding them.
Becky:
Number 7: Try something new. If you’re not making fast progress with books...
Peter:
...Try audio lessons and video lessons. Try repeating what native speakers say out loud.
Becky:
This will challenge your brain in new ways and help you regain progress.
Peter:
Number 8: Understand that language learning is a marathon, not a sprint.
Becky:
Most people think they can cram and study for hours and suddenly get better. But when they realize that it takes time...
Peter:
...this can hurt their motivation. So if you understand that it’s a marathon...
Becky:
...if you understand that it’s okay to study for only 5 or 10 minutes a day...
Peter:
...instead of pulling a one-time 5-hour cram session that will only tire you out...
Becky:
...you’ll be less stressed overall. Doing a little bit a day goes a long way.
Peter:
Number 9: But.. do keep the big goal in mind. Imagine yourself being fluent!
Becky:
Small, measurable goals are definitely important.
Peter:
But when you just don’t feel like learning...
Becky:
...which is completely natural, by the way – remember the big goal.
Peter:
Having the big picture in mind will remind you of what's important and put you back on track.
Becky:
And number 10: Invest in the language.
Peter:
Make a commitment. Whether you buy a textbook or a subscription, enroll in a class, or join a study group...
Becky:
...by investing and making a commitment, you’re much more likely to go through with it. You’ve paid for it...
Peter:
...So you’re vested. Plus other people expect you to show up....
Becky:
So you’ll definitely achieve your language goals. And that’s it!
