I’ve taught many English learners over the past eight years.
At the start of our lessons, there is a lot of energy, and my learners are VERY motivated to reach a high level.
But after a few weeks or months, many lose this initial motivation and energy, and in some cases, stop learning for a period of time.
In this video, I talk about why it’s important to become consistent with your English learning, and how you can make this happen.

How to Become Consistent (And Why It’s Important)
As I mentioned above, many learners go through cycles of learning. This is when:
- you start learning English and spend a couple of hours each day studying
- you then lose this initial energy and stop for a period of time
- you start again a few months later with renewed motivation
- you stop again, and this cycle repeats itself
If this has happened to you, it’s important to build some consistency into your learning.
The best way to do this is to use your English on a daily basis in a way that is sustainable.
Making English part of your routine, and getting into the habit of learning English, will make a massive difference over the long-term.
Incorporating English into your life, in a way that doesn’t feel like studying, will help too. An example of this is changing the language of your device into English. And it’s important to make it easy to start learning.
Additionally, making English fun will ensure that you stay consistent. Watch television, read books, and generally do things that you enjoy in English.
Don’t feel guilty about doing this: it is going to give you the input you need.
And finally, when you feel unmotivated, go back and think about the reasons why you started learning English.
Doing this will give you a boost when you need it most.
What to Do Now:
Share your experiences of learning English. Do you sometimes take breaks from learning and lose motivation?
