How to motivate yourself to learn English online

Don’t take mistakes personally

Mistakes can be the most powerful enemies on your language learning journey. Some learners can feel humiliated when making mistakes and as a result can become very demotivated. But you shouldn’t let mistakes deter you from reaching your language learning goals. The aim of learning a language is to communicate and therefore when you make mistakes while learning and speaking English, they help you remember more easily - overcoming mistakes is how you know you’re truly learning!

Start a success journal

Motivate yourself every day by keeping track of your progress. After each lesson, write down what you’ve learned and what you’ve achieved today. Don’t forget to add details and avoid vague, generic information. Keeping a journal means that you can always look back and review how far you’ve come.

What should I do if I feel lazy?

Break down your objectives into smaller chunks and start to take smaller, more manageable steps to achieve your goal. If you feel that you don’t have the time or energy to study, choose a simple task that will still help you learn or review something: spend 5 minutes reading a text in English or watch a short video on YouTube. After doing that, you might feel more encouraged and maybe even capable of completing a full lesson, leaving you feeling much more satisfied after.
