  • Hello, this is Jack from

  • and in this video we're going to talk about what you can do

  • if you are too busy to learn english,

  • so keep watching!

  • Over the years, I have taught many many

  • English learners English. This has been in language schools

  • one to one lessons and in different ways as well.

  • Now, some learners like to do their homework

  • others don't do it - and the number one reason

  • or the number one excuse I hear when someone hasn't done their homework

  • is that they are too busy. Maybe you have said this too.

  • Maybe you have said "I'm too busy to learn English."

  • Now, in the majority of these cases,

  • it's not that you're too busy - it's just that you have

  • other priorities. Now, this is not right or wrong

  • sometimes other priorities are more important.

  • but it's good to be aware that there are

  • other things involved when it comes to learning English.

  • For example, one student I had preferred to play sports.

  • She preferred to do sports all the time instead of learning English,

  • and she was aware that sports

  • were a higher priority than learning English.

  • So, the first thing to be aware of

  • and to think about is your priorities.

  • Is learning English high on your list

  • of priorities? And if not, can you make it more

  • of a priority?

  • But what if you are really really busy?

  • And you're working all day; you have to look after family;

  • you have to do lots of other things too? What if you really don't have time to

  • learn English?

  • What if you can't say, "For one hour today I'm going to learn English"?

  • Well,

  • you could introduce more English and listen to English,

  • read English, and generally do things in English

  • while doing other things - A great example of this

  • is when you're on your way to work, if you're on a train

  • in the car on your bike or walking, you can listen to English while you're on

  • your way to work.

  • Additionally, many people can also listen to English music

  • while they are working. So think about ways you can introduce more English

  • into your life even if you are really really busy.

  • But also, as I said before, think about your priorities.

  • Now, if you really enjoy watching television,

  • then watch television in English.

  • In fact, try to think about all the things that you do now

  • in your native language but do them

  • in English instead. One last thing: One

  • is better than zero - what I mean by this

  • is if you can only do one minute of learning English

  • then do that one minute - don't think it has to be one hour

  • or nothing - if you can only do five minutes, ten minutes, fifteen minutes

  • do it in English. Now the question for this video

  • is this: What tips do you have

  • for those people who say they are too busy to learn English?

  • What tips do you have for people who say they are too busy to learn English?

  • Leave your comments below this video - thanks for watching

  • and see you next time!
