I hope by now you have started on your way to speaking English like a Native.
If you haven’t, don’t worry – it’s not too late.
However, I recommend you start today.
I am going to explain how you can cut your time to fluency in half.
I want you to think about the following quote:
“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”
- Paul J. Meyer
It means that you must plan your goal and the work hard to accomplish it.
“Getting started is half the battle” (시작이 반이다) is a saying in English and in Korean.
You can get started by planning out your studies. Many times, the planning process takes longer than the actual study time.
You should start with the end goal and work your way backwards determining what must be required to accomplish that goal. So, if you intend on becoming fluent in English and speak like a native, you must have a plan.
You will need to set a yearly goal, monthly goals, weekly goals, and daily goals. Each goal must be specific, indicating what you will study and how much time you will spend on each aspect. You should also be consistent and persistent with your
Let’s practice setting a goal for yourself. You might set a goal to memorize 1,000 English vocabulary words within 6-months. In order to accomplish this, you will only have to memorize 6 words each day. Six words is easy.
Learning the most frequently used 1,000 words will allow you to say and understand 89% of the English language, which is enough for someone who has been studying for 6-months.
I hope this has helped you understand how important it is to set goals.
Get started today by setting your goals for learning English.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks and Good Luck,
