English is not something you can buy.  You must work for English skills and your English success.

In today’s episode we talk about thinking of English as part of life, not a commodity.

It’s easy to purchase a certificate course for English.  But if your heart and mind are separated from your learning, the certificate means nothing.

In the end, your skills in English are what is important – not the certificate!

You must be responsible for learning a language if you are to have any power over it.

Here are two strategies for learning English through living:

  • Go out with English-speaking colleagues after work
  • Use your other interests to explore English

When you meet a native speaker, do not think of them as an English practice object.

Instead, think of them as a potential friend!


Next, get the top 15 mistakes in English.


What can you do to change the way you think about learning English?
