5 things you can do to improve your English in 2021

Posted on

It’s that time of year when we are all swept away by the creative energy of a brand new beginning and you should definitely take advantage of this momentum to take your English to the next level. 

Here are 5 ways in which you can do this in 2021:

  1. Do what you enjoy

What floats your boat? Watching YouTube videos about cooking or DIY? Listening to music while doing the washing up? Gorging on takeaway while watching a TV series. Do all of these and more, but make sure English is a part of this. Combining an enjoyable activity with learning a language will increase your ability to memorise and the chances you’ll stick with it are higher. 

  1. Less is more

Set aside 20 minutes on your busy day to study. It doesn’t really matter what you choose to do – record new vocabulary in your favorite notebook or tune in to a podcast about starting your own business. Consistency is the key. Create visual reminders and reward yourself for not missing a day this week.

  1. Accountability is crucial

Have you ever noticed that doing something with a friend or even a group of mates increases your motivation? Well, apply this principle to your study routine and you will certainly see some great results sooner than you think. Find a study buddy and set yourself weekly SMART goals. Staying in touch with your study buddies throughout this process will make you more accountable and this in turn will allow for even more consistency. A win-win all around!

  1. Stop procrastinating

There will never be a right time to start! Accept it and take action NOW! Sign up for that class you’ve always wanted to join, book that course your friend did last year which allowed them to finally grab that promotion! You can be the next person landing their dream job too.
