Two Ways to Get Motivated Again



  • Learn in a small group: Set your learning goals and your study plans in a small group and then come together once a week to practice. This will provide the social aspect that will keep you motivated and your group members will keep you accountable to the goals that you set for yourself.


So remember, the key to getting motivated again to improve your English is to make other people a major part of your English-learning routine.

Good luck and now go find your learning partners!
