The Everyday language Learner’s Guide to Sustaining is here and it’s free. In it I lay out what it takes to keep at the journey of learning another language. Like most things in life, learning another language is nearly as much about keeping at it as any other factor and so I want to offer a little help along the way with this short work of encouragement. This manifesto of motivation is about 5,000 words long and can be read in about twenty minutes. In it I share stories, offer advice and lay out what it takes to create a personal culture of perseverance.
I am not by nature a disciplined person. I wish I were driven, focused. But I’m not. In fact I am rather, quite often a quitter. I wish “commitment” was my middle name, but it’s not. That’s why I think Sustaining is important. It’s for the rest of us. Those of us who want something a lot – to learn another language – but don’t have that grit, that drive that others do to get through to the end.
Sustaining then is about helping you take the steps needed to create, maintain and protect the motivation, commitment and attitude necessary to learn another language.
Read it today and see what you think.
If you find Sustaining to be a helpful encouragement, feel free to send your friends over to pick up a copy for themselves. Tell them about it on Twitter or Facebook or email it to them if you want. If you are a blogger and want to write about this little booklet, go for it! I want to share it with as many people as possible so spread the word. Thanks and blessings on your language learning journey!
What about you? Do you need a bit more motivation and commitment on your language learning journey?
