(Note: If you want to reach a high level of English, click here.)
Many English learners that I speak to want to reach a high level.
But they don’t have a specific goal or plan to get there.
In this video, I explain why having a goal is so powerful for your English learning. And then, I ask you a question (answer below).

Do You Have a Dream or a Goal for Your English Learning?
Take a look at the two following statements:
- “I really want to learn English”
- “I have a goal to reach a C1 level in the next 12 months”
Do you see the difference?
The first one is a desire/dream. The second one is a specific goal.
And having a goal is very powerful for your English fluency journey.
I always hear and read English learners say that they want to learn English, or that they need it for their job.
But it is rare for hear someone talk about their specific goals and their plans to get there.
Why Having an English Learning Goal Is So Powerful
Firstly, a goal it gives you clarity on what you want to achieve in your English learning. This gives you purpose and direction.
Secondly, a goal with a deadline helps you work out how to get there. This gives you a plan of action so that you can make amazing progress.
Many English learners I speak with are motivated one month, but they soon lose this motivation – having a goal helps you stay motivated for the long-term, even when things seem hard.
And finally, setting a goal like reaching a specific level of English by a specific date will help you make all the right decisions on a daily basis.
Remember, learning English is all about doing lots of small things right and not about one intensive course. A specific goal that you are focused on will ensure you make the right choices and do the right things on a daily basis.
Here is an inspiring quote on this topic:
“Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.” ~ Fitzhugh Dodson
