How To Make Time To Learn English

When somebody takes the decision of learning to speak English, he or she knows that it’s going to be necessary to invest a good amount of time to succeed, however it’s possible that there’s not a very clear idea of how long it’s going to take exactly to do it. We are accustomed to the advertisement of companies and English academies to say some things, for example: “Learn English in just three months with our learning method”, also “Intensive course to speak fluent English in 6 months, 1 year or even 2 years”. Definitely we have to invest time to get a good fluency, but How can we find the necessary time to study when we have a life full of daily activities? This is what I am going to explain in this video. I had tried during too many years to learn English using several methods without any success, but then I had the opportunity to learn some things that allowed me to reach an acceptable level of fluency in English and attain a specific goal in the language.

Steve Kaufmann’s Channel Review

This is one of the videos that I really wanted to make because I’m going to talk about one of my mentors in my English learning process. In the 5th video I talked in a pretty general manner about polyglots, those amazing people that are able to speak several languages without too much difficulty, and that it’s possible to think that they have special powers or something like that. The truth is that in real life, it’s very difficult to have the opportunity of having a conversation with someone able to speak so many languages, and even harder make that person tell us how he or she does that. But exactly as I said in that video, now that is not necessary, because it can be achieved simply by watching the videos that they share on YouTube. Now I’m going to talk about Steve kaufmann, who I have noted so far, is the most active and constant polyglot on YouTube. I want to make this review focusing in the value he shares to anyone willing to listen to him. Something very important that I want to put clear, es that this video is not to criticize. I am not going to do something like that, simply because I have no right to do it. I am doing it because I want the person who will watch this video feel interested to check Steve’s videos, also to analyze if watching his videos is worth it and to subscribe to his channel if considered that the advices in them are going to be useful.

What You Need To Start To Learn English On Your Own

There are two things that you need to take into account when starting to learn English, which are paramount and both are necessary to achieve the goal of speaking English with a high level. The first one, is an important reason or motivation to learn English. When there is something in your mind that is telling you that learning English is worthwhile, and that the effort and discipline are worth to learn it, then somehow your mind is going to find the motivation to continue when the things are getting difficult. Without a reason that is important enough is going to be so hard to be motivated to learn English, and without motivation is going to be too complicated to get far in the language. The motivation can be obtained from something very good that is waiting for you after learning English, or also because something very difficult is happening to you in your life. It’s incredible but the problems and desperation for not being able to resolve them, can be a great motivator to achieve amazing things.

The Fears Before Starting To Learn English

When the idea of starting to learn English begins to round in your mind, too many times the first impulse is of excitement because you imagine yourself speaking fluently, getting a better job, making foreign friends and doing amazing things. It’s really exciting that first vision that you can have just in the beginning, even more when somebody that already speaks English is telling you all the things that he can do, or when you are being offered an English course, generally the seller tries to create this mental picture to encourage you to pay for the course. And it is true, indeed you are going to be able to do all these things and many more. But… Once you get the first grammar book and after a couple of hours of study the situation is completely different. You start to realize that everything is senseless, that you cannot pronounce the words, that you do not understand anything when people is speaking in English because they speak too quickly and you start to doubt that you can do it. Well, welcome to the club!
