FocusHow can you motivate yourself for English learning?

Today, Lindsay and Michelle discuss a tip to help you be a better self-guided learner!

Bribing yourself can mean many things.  As said, you might enjoy a treat while you learn.  Or, if you’re listening to a podcast, maybe you can go outside for a walk in a beautiful place instead of sitting in a stuffy room.
