AEE 159: 3 Ways to be a Motivated English Learner

Motivated English learnerAre you feeling unmotivated with your English learning?

Do you have no energy?

Today we talk about three ways to become a more motivated English speaker!

A recent Time Magazine article says that feelings are important to motivation.

So, to stay motivated in learning a new language, your emotions must support it.

You must make it personal and be passionate!

One way to do this is to connect the language to something you already love: music, cinema, literature or friends.

Here are three more ways to help you stay motivated:

  • Get positive!: Focus on being happy as you study English. The more optimistic you are, the more you are likely to learn.
  • Reward yourself: If you do something good, give yourself a treat. Buy yourself a gift, go out to dinner, or just give yourself some free time.
  • Use peer pressure: Let the people around you reinforce your goals! Spend time around people you want to be like.
  • Set a practical goal: Take an exam such as the IELTS or the TOEFL to keep yourself motivated and continue pushing to the next level.
