  • Hi. Bob the Canadian here. Learning the English language can be hard.

  • And sometimes you will want to quit.

  • But in this video I am going to look at five ways to stay excited about learning the English

  • language.

  • Learning English can take a long time, and sometimes during the journey towards fluency

  • you might want to quit. In this video I'm going to look at five ways that you can stay

  • motivated. Five ways that you can stay happy and excited about learning English.

  • The first thing that you should do to stay excited is:

  • Do something fun.

  • Maybe find a youtube video that's really entertaining, something that will make you laugh. Maybe

  • find a television show that you find especially entertaining, and just take some time to laugh

  • at what's happening on the screen while you're listening to English.

  • The second thing that you can do to stay excited and happy about learning English is:

  • To set a schedule.

  • Maybe you'll decide that on Mondays you'll do some English reading. On Tuesdays you'll

  • do some English listening practice. Maybe on Wednesdays you'll take a break. And Thursdays

  • you'll practice some writing. And on Fridays you will try to find someone with whom you

  • can have an English conversation.

  • Having a schedule is an external motivator. It's something outside of you that helps you

  • to stay on track with your English learning progress.

  • The third thing that you can do to stay motivated is:

  • To find encouragement. There are two things that can really encourage you to learn English

  • more. One is to find a group of people who are also learning English. Maybe you could

  • find a local group of people, a language learning club, or maybe you can find a group online.

  • And these people will be in the same position as you. And they will be able to give you

  • encouragement.

  • But don't forget, when other people are encouraging you, be sure to return the favour, and encourage

  • them as well.

  • Another source of encouragement could be a website or app like Duolingo, which will reward

  • you for each small step you make in your English learning progress.

  • The fourth thing that you can do to stay motivated while learning English is:

  • To tie your interests to your language learning.

  • If you like soccer or football, try watching a match in English. If you like reading books,

  • try to read a book that you enjoyed in your own language in English. If you enjoy films.

  • Try watching a film that is in your own language and then watch it again in English.

  • All of these things can help you to continue to improve your English.

  • The fifth thing that you can to motivate yourself while learning English is:

  • To set good goals. A goal might be to learn a certain amount of vocabulary in a month.

  • Or you might register to take a language test three months in the future, and then you will

  • be motivated to study as the test date approaches.

  • Both of these are good ways to establish external motivations that will help you to continue

  • studying English when you just don't feel like it.

  • Bob the Canadian here. Those are five ways that you can stay motivated and succeed while

  • you are learning English.

  • I know you can do it. You just need to keep at it. It takes a little bit of time.

  • Thanks for watching. Don't forget to subscribe. I hope you have a great day.
