Becky: Okay listeners, let’s talk about how to motivate yourself to learn language.
Peter: So Becky, you’ve heard of things like... visualizing yourself accomplishing goals, right?
Becky: Yeah, but I wonder if that all really works.
Peter: I’m not too sure. But today, we’ll give you one proven motivational tactic.
Becky: ... and we’ll tell you how you can use it with our language learning system
Peter: So, here it is. One thing people don’t realize, is that one of the quickest ways to gain motivation...
Becky: ...and enjoy anything you’re working on...
Peter: ....is to see actual, measurable progress.
Becky: So, for example, if you’re going to the gym and you start seeing muscles, you’ll probably like it a lot and be motivated to keep going, right?
Peter: Right. Now let’s apply that to language learning, Becky... because I don’t go to the gym.
Becky: (laughs). Okay, so the proven way to stay motivated in language learning is...
Peter: ...you must see your progress.
Becky: If you’re speaking and understanding a lot more language...
Peter...It’s guaranteed that you’ll be motivated to get even better. Progress leads to more progress.
Becky: Peter, how can our listeners actually see their learning progress with our system?
Peter: Good question Becky. They’ll see it wth our progress-tracking dashboard.
Becky: For every lesson you finish, mark it complete and you’ll see the dashboard progress bar get closer to 100% completion..
Peter: And once you’re done with a level, like Beginner, it guides you to the next level, Intermediate.
Becky: But most importantly, listeners, you get to see measurable results. Like, you’ve completed 80% of a Beginner Series...
Peter: Or... it’ll tell you, you’ve mastered 200 lessons and 20 series total.
Becky: So, remember listeners, seeing your progress is a proven way to stay motivated.
Peter: And you can watch that progress in real time with our Dashboard.
