Gabriella: Listeners, what’s your new year’s resolution?
Peter: And how will you make sure you succeed?
Gabriella: A lot of people fall short... don’t they?
Peter: They do. Even I almost failed my old resolution of learning Chinese.
Gabriella: So what happened? Did you achieve it?
Peter: Gabriella, I smashed through my resolution. I visited China in Oct. 2013, and broke through every one of my goals. Do you know how I did it?
Gabriella: Listeners, listen up because this is a GREAT lesson.
Peter: A few simple changes to my goal made a massive difference.
Gabriella: Like what?
Peter: I started aiming for smaller, more measurable goals. For instance, I changed my New Year’s resolution from “Master Chinese” to “Speak 10 Minutes of Chinese per study session with my tutor”
Gabriella: Clever! Sounds more manageable doesn’t it? Afterall, you can’t expect to magically become fluent. You put a number on it.
Peter: No magic here, Gabriella. Once I made that small change, I hit my goal in 3 months and extended 10 minutes to 15 then 20...and now I’m up to 30 minute conversations. I’m blown away at how easy it was once I changed my mindset.
Gabriella: So which other tips for fast and effective language learning can you pass onto our learners out there for 2014, Peter?
Peter: Write down your new measurable goal and place it somewhere where you’ll see it everyday. It sounds a little strange, but it keeps you focused on your goal.
Gabriella: And that doesn’t just apply to language learning, but any goal you’re trying to achieve in life!
Peter: It really works Gabriella. So, listeners, take these tips and apply them right now..
