Learn English: The 20-Minute Method

Do you have a hard time learning English? Follow the advice in this video to completely change the way you study English! The biggest problem most English learners face is staying motivated. You can learn English for free online, but it is often hard to find the time and energy to keep learning when there is so much to do at work, at home, or at school. Even if you really want to learn English because you know that it is important for your life, you may find yourself being lazy and doing other things, such as watching television when you could be studying. Does this description of a frustrated and unmotivated English learner sound like you? In today's lesson you'll learn what YOU can do to stop YOUR English-learning headaches and frustrations! At the end of the video, be sure to leave a comment to let me know what you thought of this lesson, and whether it was helpful for you! Then test your understanding with the quiz at: http://www.engvid.com/learn-english-the-20-minute-method/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, guys. Do you notice something different about today? Hmm. Where's the board gone? Today's lesson is a bit different. It's just me giving you some advice about learning English. And this video is for you, in particular, if you are a learning English quitter. Who is a learning English quitter? A learning English quitter is somebody who works really, really hard studying: "Learn English, learn English, learn English", for two days, four days, one day, and then quits. Does nothing, does nothing for weeks. And then the same thing: Works really, really hard: "Learn English, learn English, learn English", for three days, and then quits. "I'll do it tomorrow. I'll do it tomorrow." And the other thing that a learning English quitter does is feel bad all the time about not learning enough English. "I'm so stupid. I should be learning more English." But you're not, are you? You're watching TV, you're having a beer. You're not learning English at all, are you? So, this video is for you if you're a learning English quitter. And trust me on this one: It is a life changer, total game changer. What you need to begin, starting today, is what I call the 20-minute English discipline. 20-minute English discipline, and you do this every single day of your life. And what it means is for 20 minutes a day, every single day, you study English in a serious way. Okay? A serious way. An active way. You do it on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday; every day. You do it on your birthday, you do it when your cousin's getting married. You do it every day, it doesn't matter. No excuses, you do it. So, when your cousin comes to you and says: "Hey, let's go and have a beer", you say: "That's a great idea. I'm going to come with you in nine minutes when I've finished my studies. I'll be with you in a minute." So don't let other people put you off doing your daily... Daily discipline of study. 20 minutes every day. Plus, this is what happens: When you start doing the 20-minute discipline, you realize: "Oh, 20 minutes isn't that long. I haven't... I haven't finished everything I wanted to finish. I'm going to study some more." Nun-uh, nun-uh, nun-uh. It's just 20 minutes every day. When you get to 20 minutes, you stop. It's not: "I'll do 25 minutes today." It's not: "I'll do 40 minutes today, and not do anything tomorrow." It's not that. It's 20 minutes every day, and then you stop. That's all you need to do. The problem when you do 40 minutes one day, one hour another day, nothing the next day is that you lose... You don't build up the strength and the habit of making studying and studying English, in particular, part of your everyday life, so that's why for most people it doesn't work to do a lot on one day and nothing on the other.

Jorge B: I AM SO HAPPY.

I saw this video 2-3 month ago, when I started my university semester and I started what I call "The 120-minute method".

The fact is that when I saw this video 3 month ago, I didn't undertand what was he saying, I needed subtitles and traslate at the same time to undertood the most of the things. Now 3 months later, after been studing 2 hour per day, I maybe undertand 95% of all single words and I'm so happy.

I think is easier to lisen and understand than write for me, because off that I will be make many mistake! But time to time.

Maybe not all people can study for 2 hours all the days, I think I have a strong study habit which enable me do that.

After all of that I only can say one thing with all my love... Thanks you for that video.

kiko kik: Thanks a lot
