Peter: Now, listeners, if you haven’t heard about the Inner Circle, here’s what it is:
Becky: It’s an exclusive monthly newsletter for our most dedicated learners.
Peter: We send it at the end of every month and in it, we cover successful learning strategies...
Becky: ...effective learning tools that you may not know about, and tested study methods ...
Peter; ...a lot of it is based on my experiences with Chinese, Japanese, and Italian language learning.
Becky: So you don’t have to fail at your language goals. If you made a new year’s resolution this year...
Peter: ...Or set any language goal for that matter....
Becky: You can skip the mistakes most learners make, you can learn how to stay motivated...
Peter: ...and reach your goals faster with the Inner Circle.
Becky: Peter, can we give our listeners a sneak peek? For example, why do most learners fail their goals?
Peter: Great question, Becky. It’s because their goal’s usually something like... “I want be fluent in Japanese by September” ...which has 3 key things wrong with it.
Becky: Number 1, It’s unrealistic, because... you want to be fluent by September and you just started now?
Peter: That’s a huge goal and you’re setting yourself up for failure.
Becky: Number 2, It’s not measurable.
Peter: I mean how do you define fluency? It’s a very open ended question. So you’re not even defining your goal.
Becky: You really can’t aim for “fluency” because that’s very vague.
Peter: True. And number 3, There’s no action plan. How will you do it? Most learners have no plan and they end up failing.
Becky: So, to set a goal that you will achieve, you need these 3 crucial rules.
Peter: Number 1, It has to be realistic. For example... learn 100 new words this month. A small monthly goal is a lot more realistic than ‘becoming fluent by September’, right?
Becky: Right. It’s also measurable. That’s rule number 2. You know you need to learn 100 words...
Peter: ... and you know you need to know them by the end of this month. So either you know them...
Becky: ...Or you don't! And rule number 3, You need an action plan: How will you learn 100 words in a month?
Peter: Take those 100 words, divide by the 4 weeks in a month and learn 25 a week, or 5 a day for 5 days. Give yourself weekends off.
Becky: And you can do it with flashcards, for 30 minutes a day during your designated study time.
Peter: And that’s how you easily reach a goal in 1 month. Then, you can aim for more.
Becky: So, listeners - these are the kinds of topics covered in the Inner Circle.
