— [http://goo.gl/6iYXyQ] HOW CAN YOU START SPEAKING A NEW LANGUAGE QUICKLY?_______________________Does your free time get eaten up by family commitments, leaving you little time or energy to devote to language learning?
:: RT: Time hacking: Mind Tools for Language Learners ▶ https://goo.gl/WxpHgz ◀ With a small change in mindset you can quite easily fit a solid, effective routine into even the busiest schedule, that will have you learning a language and speaking fluently quicker than you ever thought possible. “Mindsets play strange tricks on us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to see.” --Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.
The wrong mindset will cause you to jump from book to book, method to method, not really knowing what you’re doing, and leave you frustrated, demotivated, and wondering why you’re not making any progress. So, what is your mindset telling you about language learning? Is it telling you to focus on highly effective activities that are bringing you closer to fluency? Or is it telling you to keep trying new things until you find something that works?
Thanks to our outdated school system, we’ve been raised to view the best way to learn a language as spending long hours sat at a table, heads-down, deep in concentration. And if you’re a really busy person, no wonder you’re struggling to find the time for that!
You have more technology in your pocket than was used to put a man on the moon. And with that technology you can adapt your learning to fit your schedule, however long your hours may be.
And the best bit?
When you get away from your desk and start to take your learning out and about with you, a whole host of amazing possibilities open up. You’ll start to spend more time than you can possibly imagine immersed in your target language, in a way that’s more fun and far more effective than studying at home.

When you'll do some time hacking, then you’ll have more quality time to spend at home in the evening, without worrying about how to fit your language learning into the last remaining hours of the day. The truth is that you do have enough time. You just need to know what to do with it ::

Why setting goals doesn’t workResponderEliminar
Traditional goal-setting in language learning would have you focus on the product.ResponderEliminar
I will reach B1 level by November
I will memorise 1,981 Japanese kanji over the next 3 months
I will learn 30 words a day
That’s all very well, and I love the ambition there, but... and be honest now… if you set a goal like this, can you really see yourself reaching it?
Look, the harsh reality is that most of us get incredibly excited about the goals that we set, but are woefully inadequate at following through.
If traditional goal setting focuses you on the product, my approach focuses on the process.ResponderEliminar
Let me explain.
I know that if I set lofty language-learning goals, achieving them will probably be complex.
I know that if achieving them is complex, I probably won’t stick to any routine designed to get me there.
I know that if I won’t stick to the routine, there’s no point in starting in the first place.
So, really have to adjust course.
Here’s what I know:
I still need to do a lot of work if I’m to improve at my language.
I believe that “done is better than perfect.“
Therefore, it’s more productive for me to devote my all my energy to one things that I enjoy and know I can do, than ten well-crafted steps to a lofty goal that I “should” be doing…but won’t.
