Becky: Alright listeners, how do you stay motivated when learning a language?
Peter: Becky, this is a great question, because motivation plays a huge role in language learning success.
Becky: So here are our top 10 methods, techniques, and study tools!
Peter: Let’s start with our features first.
Becky: Number 1: Track and see your learning progress with the Dashboard.
Peter: Listeners, there’s nothing better than seeing your progress first-hand.
Becky: It’s like stepping on a scale and seeing that you’ve lost weight, or seeing muscles in the mirror after working out!
Peter: That’s a perfect way of putting i, Becky. With the Dashboard, you can see how many lessons...
Becky: ...and how much of the language you’ve mastered thus far.
Peter: Instantly see how much progress you’ve made with the Dashboard on the site.
Becky: Number 2: Listeners, this is our newest feature. The Daily Dose of Language app.
Peter: With it, you get free, daily mini-lessons... but that’s not all.
Becky: That’s right. You stay on track because this app sends you reminders...
Peter: ...every single day. So listeners, with this app, you build successful study habits..
Becky: ...and you don’t need to worry about how or what to study...
Peter: ...all you have to do is one easy lesson a day. And it takes a minute.
Becky: And the power of reminders is crucial for motivation and staying on track.
Peter: That’s right, Becky. Listeners, sometimes we just need a nudge to get our goals done.
Becky: Number 3: Learn with somebody better than you. A teacher or a friend, for example.
Peter: You can learn with our own teacher with a Premium PLUS subscription...
Becky: ...And having someone better than you by your side will definitely motivate you to keep going. It’s like having a coach.
Peter: Number 4: Set a small, measurable goal, like being able to reach 10 minutes of conversation by the end of next month.
Becky: Reaching goals is extremely motivating, isn’t it, Peter?
Peter: It certainly is. But most people give up because they have a vague goal like “I want to be fluent” that they don’t know how to reach.
Becky: But if you aim small and make it measurable...
Peter: You’re guaranteed to reach it! And that will give you more drive to keep going.
Becky: Number 5: Watch movies and TV shows in your target language.
Peter: Can we really recommend that?
Becky: You watch Narcos.
Peter: Very true. But first of al,l we recommend it because it’s fun. But more importantly, when you understand what you hear...
Becky: ...That’s a clear sign of progress and you will definitely feel good about it.
Peter: Number 6: This is similar to five – Listen to music in your target language.
Becky: It’s fun, it’s great passive learning, and it’s immersive. And music is very memorable.
Peter: Great point, Becky. This means that you’ll remember the lyrics and start understanding them.
Becky: Number 7: Change the way you’re studying. If you’re not making progress with books...
Peter: Change it up. Try audio lessons and video lessons. Try repeating what native speakers say out loud.
Becky: This will challenge your brain in new ways and help you regain progress.
Peter: Number 8: Understand that language learning is a marathon, not a sprint.
Becky: Most people think they can cram and study for hours and suddenly get better. But when they realize that it takes time...
Peter: ...this can hurt their motivation. So if you understand that it’s a marathon, you’ll be less stressed about not reaching big goals in a short amount of time.
Becky: Number 9: Keep the big goal in mind. Imagine yourself being fluent!
Peter: Small, measurable goals are definitely important. But when you just don’t feel like learning...
Becky: ...which is completely natural, by the way – try to remember the big goal.
Peter: Having the big picture in mind will remind you of what's important and put you back on track.
Becky: And number 10: Invest in the language.
Peter: Make a commitment. Whether you buy a textbook or a subscription, enroll in a class, or join a study group...
Becky: ...by investing and making a commitment, you’re much more likely to go through with it. You’ve paid for it...
Peter: ...So you’re vested. Plus other people expect you to show up....
Becky: So you’ll definitely achieve your language goals. And that’s it!

Mi motivación es hablar con personas nativas de México, no solamente con los americanos que viven aquí in México.


(My motivation is to talk with Mexican native people, not only with Americans who live here in Mexico.)
