Achieving English Fluency Strategy 3: Motivation and Mindset
In Lisa’s previous posts, she shared the first two strategies for learning English: Immersion and Repetition. Listening and repeating the language you are learning is important. Her third strategy focuses on why you want to learn English and the best mindset to achieve that goal.
The first part of Lisa’s third strategy is motivation. Often, when people are learning a new language, they are doing so as a school or job requirement and have no intrinsic (your own rather than someone else’s) reason to learn that language. This makes it harder to gain language fluency because it is a chore (or a job) rather than a desire. The first part of Lisa’s third strategy has to do with thinking of a good reason YOU want to learn English.
The second part of Lisa’s third strategy is all about having a growth mindset. Most people feel that those with the talent to do something better than others are born with it. This leads us to believe that there is a limit to what we can achieve and makes us easily frustrated, or upset while learning new things.
Motivation For Learning English
This is called having a fixed mindset – believing you can only change so much about yourself and that you should even try to push yourself. In the book, “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” psychologist Carol Dweck discusses the idea of a growth mindset. This is the idea that if you work hard enough, you can build your level of new skills and talents. This is the heart of Lisa’s third strategy belief – that you can achieve and learn anything you want as long as you persevere (don’t give up) and work hard towards any goal you wish.
