You couldn't work in French today.
It's okay, don't give up. Go back to your good habits the next day.
Turn off your phone's notifications when you are working.
Being efficient requires concentration.
Don't wait until the day itself to think about what you're going to work on.
I advise you to plan every Sunday evening what you will be working on in French every day for the week.
Let French into your home
Let French come into your home and grow in your life: change the language of your phone and your social networks, make your shopping list in French, fill out your agenda in French
Stay motivated :
To stay motivated, you have to take into account three parameters :
- YOUR ABILITY TO GET THE JOB DONE :
This parameter will be achieved according to the objectives you set yourself.
Hence, the importance of setting SMART goals.
The confidence you have in yourself will also be very important in achieving your goals.
If you have low self-esteem, you're going to have a hard time achieving your goals.
However, if you are aware of your abilities, you will easily achieve your goals.
Whether you learn French as a hobby or as a personal or professional accomplishment, you are bound to expect results.
These results must be meaningful and concrete for you.
They must be consistent with the high personal value you place on learning French.
The great personal value you place on French is what prompted you to embark on this adventure in the first place.
Remember during your apprenticeship, your why.
Why are you learning French ? This will help you stay focused on your goals.
Getting out of your comfort zone
You're learning French, but you don't think you're making any progress ?
And yet, you watch series and films in French, you read articles in French, you listen to music in French, you do almost everything in French.
But, if after a while you feel that you are no longer progressing, you will have to think about getting out of your comfort zone !
It's not that hard to get out of your comfort zone, don't be afraid.
For example : You watch series and movies in French with subtitles in your mother tongue.
→ The next step is to watch them always in French, but with French subtitles.
→ And another step is to watch them in French, but without subtitles !
You try it once, if it's okay, you keep trying. If it's too hard, you're not ready for that step.
It's okay, wait a moment.
The important thing is to at least try.
Here's an example of how to get out of your comfort zone.
And you, what are your good habits for learning French?
See you soon for new adventures, in French of course! 🇫🇷
