To kick off our month of motivation with busuu, we’re talking about ways to improve your love of language learning and keep yourself motivated throughout 2014. In this post we’ll be talking about ways to increase intrinsic motivation, the motivation that comes from within us, as well as some simple things you can do that will help keep your learning on track for the year ahead.
Intrinsic motivation comes from an enjoyment and appreciation of the activity that we are involved in. Here are three ways to help yourself to love your learning with busuu:
1. Believe in yourself. Everyone has the ability to learn another language, it’s just a question of understanding what your strengths are and making the most of them.
2. Take control of your learning. Only you are in charge of your learning and the decisions you make. Realising this can help us make the most of the learning experience.
3. Aim high. Every bit of time you dedicate to your studies takes you a step closer to being excellent in your chosen language. And for that reason, every step should be fun and rewarding in itself.
Set yourself goals
One way to take control of your learning is to set yourself goals. This doesn’t necessarily help you love your learning, but it definitely helps keep you going during the inevitable tough times. With busuu you can set a target of how much you want to learn and also state how much time you want to dedicate to your studies each week. This way you can easily see if you’re on track, and push you to work a bit harder if not.
