Is it difficult for you to learn English regularly?
Would you like to speak English fluently, but you don’t feel motivated?
Do you get bored easily trying to learn English?
Today I’d like to share with you guys some tips about how you can stay motivated learning English as a second language.
Learn about things you like
It’s very important that you enjoy the learning process, because if you get bored you won’t learn anything.
Think about your interests: sports, food, books, etc.
For example, if you enjoy cooking, you can learn vocabulary about food in order that you can express yourself natural and confident when you talk about this kind of topic that is familiar for you.
Take a break
Now that you are learning things you like, it is normal to get bored sometimes, that’s why you need to take a break.
I try to keep learning Portuguese reading books or articles I like, but when I get bored, I watch a movie, listen to music, etc. The key is to keep learning doing different things.
Sometimes I get bored as well, so I take a break and come back the next day to learn.
I try to learn regularly because if I stop my routine, the learning process will be slower.
Set small goals
If you’d like to speak English fluently, first you have to know that you need to take small steps to get there.
When you are familiar with the vocabulary related to your daily activities, you learn to speak fluent and confident.
Please, pick up a topic that you would like to master and learn everything about that; it could be about your work, hobbies, transportation, etc. Once you mastered a topic, choose another one and so on.
After a while you’ll see how your English improves and you’ll speak fluent and confident.
Don’t give up
Some people start learning a language very motivated, but after a while they give up, because they notice that when they want to talk they make mistakes. Please don’t be afraid of making mistakes.
Many ESL students are good at reading, but they are not able to speak, your main goal should be speaking fluently.
Learn from your mistakes, learning a language is about making mistakes. The more you practice that more learn to speak correctly.
