-.-

Do you have a clear vision of what your life will look like when you reach your goals?

What will your life look like when you are fulfilling your personal, career and family aspirations?

You are the only person responsible for fulfilling your aspirations. You have the power and the ability to shape your life experiences according to what you desire for yourself and those people important to you.

You can build a clearer vision with the following exercise about ‘If/Then statements’.

Starting with the goal statements that you developed from this previous exercise, you are going to construct sentences that describe your life as if these goals are already achieved.

For example, starting with a simple goal statement:

Example 1 – “My goal is to have a house in the country.”

You will change this sentence into an ‘If/Then’ sentence:

– “If I have a house in the country, then I will enjoy the peace and quiet everyday.”

or,

– “If I have a house in the country, then I will grow vegetables in the garden.”

Example 2“My goal is to share quality time with my partner.”

As an If/Then sentence…

– “If I share quality time with my partner, then we will feel closer and more connected.”

Example 3“My goal is to earn at least £____ per year.”

As an If/Then sentence…

– “If I earn at least £____ per year, then I will be able to retire in # years time.”

Try this exercise now with your goals and leave a comment below, telling us one of your If/Then statements.

Learning a language is simple and you are already a master language learner… You learnt you mother tongue in only a few years!!

Now that you are consciously learning English, you can speed up the process and become an advanced speaker in less than a year.

You can do this by using the same principles that you used as a child. The first of these is to listen, listen and listen some more!

The most effective starting point is to regularly listen to language that is relevant to you.

– First, be clear on the reason you are learning English. You can do this short exercise to help you get focused.

– Next, you’re going to use youtube to find videos in English that are related to your purpose. Type in a keyword and add one of the following search-terms:

‘How to’

‘Basics’

‘Made simple’

‘For beginners’

For example, if you are a software engineer you can search for:

“Programming basics”

“Computer language for beginners”

“Software creation made simple”

With these search terms you’ll get a range of videos that use the essential language you need, in a way that will make it easy for you to understand in English.

Choose a video that grabs your attention and make sure it’s not more than twenty minutes long. You can watch the same video every day, or choose a different one.

After just one week you’ll be surprised how much you can understand.

If you do this for a month, you’ll be able to use this new language to speak about your subject.

If you keep on doing this each day for 3 months, your English learning will increase significantly as well as your knowledge of your subject.

Use this simple tip and accelerate your English learning now!

How to ask Intelligent Questions…

QuestionMarksFollowing on from the last exercise

You’ve now got some sentences that express your goals, e.g.

– To have a house in the country.

– To be in the top 5% of my profession.

– To go on holiday every year with my family.

Do you see that each of your goals has questions related to it? Every sentence you make can generate a series of questions.

Who, What, Why, When Where, How.

 You can now start a dialogue about your goals… Using this sentence as an example:

“I want to have a house in the country.”

– What type of house would you like to live in?

– Where do you want to live?

– How big will your house be?

– What style will your house be?

– What materials will it be made of?

– Why do you want to live in the country?

Choose one of your goals and write down 5 questions that you can ask about it. If you would like us to check your questions for correctness, send an email to us now. Next time you’re having a conversation with someone, remember to ask them questions about their goals!

Next lesson will be about using adjectives to give detailed answers to those questions, so you can build the picture of yourself enjoying your goals.

How to Motivate your English Learning

cropped-ela-logo-v2_250.pngKeywords: discoveries, implications, potential, accelerated, purpose, motivate, inspire, goals, interrelated, support, balance, imagine.

Keyphrases: unleash your potential; crystal-clear; mother tongue; mind’s-eye.

-.-

The way we learn is changing. In the last 100 years, there have been many discoveries in educational psychology that have huge implications for the way we teach and learn.

We know that it’s possible to learn at a much faster speed than before. We are discovering the truly awesome potential of our minds. We also live in a world where the ability to learn quickly and effectively is an absolute necessity.

All the methods of accelerated learning start at the same place: What is your Purpose? What’s your ‘reason why’.

Why do you need to learn? What will be the result for you? What will you get from unleashing the potential of your mind?

This is a question where there is no right or wrong answer. There can be no judgement about the value of your reason. Your ‘reason why’ needs only to be meaningful to you.

At English Learning Accelerated, Your Purpose forms the basis of all your learning. This is the reason that we want to help you become crystal-clear about your purpose so this can motivate and inspire all your actions.

When you have a clear vision of your purpose, it’s much easier to reach your goals.

The number one, best way for you to become clear on your purpose is to regularly write down your goals. The aim is to create a vision of what you want, in each area of your life; for your Career, your Health, your Family and Relationships, your Finances, your Learning and Play.

All your goals will be interrelated and support each other, and it’s important that they are in balance with each other.

Here is a simple exercise so that you can get started now.

1) Imagine yourself in ten years time. How do you want your life to be like, in ten years from now? What kind of job will you be doing? How will you be dressed? Who are the important people in your life? Where will you be living? What other activities will you be doing? How much money will you be making?

Take a moment to think about this, before continuing to the next question.

2) i) Find a clean piece of paper and a pen.

ii) In your mother tongue, write ten things about how you would like your life to be in ten years. Give yourself two minutes to write at least ten sentences. Start with the first thing that comes to mind.

3) Next to each sentence, write a number between 1 −10 that reflects how important this goal is to you.

4) Underline each sentence that you scored with a 9 or a 10.

5) Translate these top-scoring goals into English.

In this exercise you will be practicing your use of the infinitive form of the verb. You can use the following examples as a guide:

In ten years time my goals are:

– To have a house in the country.

– To be in the top 5% of my profession.

– To go on holiday every year with my family.

– To earn at least £______ per year.

– To provide for the health and education of my family.

– To share quality time with my partner.

When you’ve translated your top three goals, send us an email here, and we’ll let you know if you need to make any corrections in your use of language.

Next lesson will be about how to use your goals to formulate questions. By answering these questions, you’ll be able to provide detail to your goals, making them clearer and more vivid to your mind’s eye.

How to correct your written English mistakes…

You’ve got a piece of work to do, a report, letter or an essay and it’s got to be correct. There’s something you’re not sure about, and you just want to get some help.

But what can you do when Teacher is not around??

Here’s four easy ways to make sure your writing is correct…

Use a search engine. Enter the sentence that you’re struggling with into a search engine. If you’ve made a simple error, google will normally say, “did you mean…”, and give you a correction.

If that didn’t work, check the first page of results for ideas.

Figure out the simplest way. It can be too easy to overcomplicate things. Especially if you’re trying to translate a sentence directly from one language to another.

What’s the essence of what you want to say? How can you put it in the simplest terms? If you were talking to a child, how would you make your expression understandable to them?

Find a study buddy. It really does help to know there’s someone you can ask when you get stuck. Find someone with similar goals and you can support each other when difficulties arise.

Use Grammarly. Do you use a word processor? You know how it will highlight grammar mistakes in green and spelling mistakes in red… That’s nothing compared with what Grammarly can do for you.

When you enter your text into the Grammarly’s online proofreading engine it checks for over 250 kinds of grammatical errors. That’s 10 times more than your word processor! Not only that, it also intelligently suggests alternative vocabulary, and will check your writing for plagiarism, just in case.

For just a small monthly fee, you’ll always have someone to ask when you need instant results!

-.-

You never need to be stuck when writing in English. As always, take a deep breath and trust your brain to deliver the solution!

The best way for you to improve your English…

What’s the best way for you to improve your English??

There are many ways that you can get your English level to where you want it to be. The best way for you will be unique to your individual learning style.

To get the results you need, and to enjoy being able to speak and understand without frustration, your learning must include these things:

You must be clear on your purpose. Why do you need to speak English well? What difference will it make to your career? How will it affect your ability to interact and grow your network?

Can you see yourself fulfilling your goals using English? What would it mean to you to be able to understand other English speakers whatever their accent and to be able to speak with refined pronunciation.

When you have a clear image in your mind of how speaking better English can affect your life, it increases your motivation and you become unstoppable in your progress.

You must immerse yourself. You don’t need to travel to an English speaking country in order to immerse yourself in English. Our world is full of English… songs, movies, news and documentaries, books, magazines and websites. You’ve already been exposed to so much English through global media that you probably know more than you think.

When you make the commitment to immerse yourself everyday in a variety of English language media, you will quickly find yourself becoming familiar with the sounds and expressions of English. This familiarity is critical if you want to be able to express yourself naturally in English.

Choose from your favourite subjects, activities and heros, and spend at least 15 minutes a day, reading and watching videos in English. After a month of doing only this your fluency will have increased. Test it out for yourself and see the results!

– Focus on the communication. When you’ve got to use your English, for delivering presentations or writing reports, focus on what your audience needs to hear, instead of what you’re going to say.

If you’re busy thinking about being correct, using the right words and not making mistakes with your English, then you won’t be present-minded enough to make a sincere connection with your audience.

Holding your purpose in mind, take a deep breath, trust the immense capacity of your brain and allow your language to flow. The empathy that you will create with your audience is much more valuable than their recognition of your language skills.

Whatever method you choose to improve your English, make sure that it serves your big purpose; make sure that you get immersed in material that is directly relevant to your purpose; and make sure that it actually enhances your communication skills, not just your knowledge of correct English.

If you follow these steps, whatever methods you choose, you will notice a dramatic increase in your fluency, your vocabulary knowledge and your enjoyment of using your new English language skills.

5 Steps to Understanding how Language is More than Words

There’s so much involved when learning a language. You’ve got to know your vocabulary, use the right grammar, pronounce the words correctly with the right intonation. To get to an intermediate level takes a lot of effort, but to become an advanced speaker takes a tremendous amount of dedication because of how you must immerse yourself in the culture of that language.

So language learning is a journey that you’ve got to be committed to if you want to reach your goals.

But what about when you need that result now? When you’re in front of another person and you’ve got to get your message across and understand where they’re coming from.

You’ve got to be able to use your current skills to get the job done! You’ve got to get over your mistakes and your desire to be correct. You must be able to get past the words and focus on the communication.

If you’re too busy thinking about how to be correct then your quality of listening will go down and this will affect the motivation of the person you’re talking to. If you’re more interested in demonstrating your language proficiency, then the person you’re talking to will quickly lose interest, (unless the explicit purpose of the conversation is to practice your language together).

The person that you are speaking with will be either waiting to receive critical information from you, or be wanting to transmit critical information to you. If you’re too busy using them as conversation practice, you’re going to miss the opportunity to make that connection.

Here’s 5 steps for how to get over this difficulty and always get the most out of every conversation.

Firstly, know your purpose. What are you in the conversation for and what do you want from the other person? What’s your role? What do you have to offer and what do you want to receive?

Secondly, make a clear distinction between when you’re learning and when you’re are communicating. Don’t turn the other person into a teacher, but do let them help you when you need it.

Third, focus on creating a clear channel for the communication to take place. It’s a real live human being in front of you. Pay attention to the individual who is in front of you. Be present and the language will flow on its own.

Fourth, know that whatever level your language is currently there’s always room for improvement. Even in our native tongues we don’t get everything correct all the time and we use idiosyncrasies which you can only learn from experience which we cannot learn in a classroom setting.

Fifth, allow your communication to flow. Don’t speak language, just express yourself. No one is marking you for correctness except yourself. Giving your expression space and let the person in front of you remember you not for how well you have done your learning, but for your interest in them.

Practice these steps towards ever fruitful conversations.

P.S. Please leave a comment below and let us know your experience of finding your self-expression in another language.
