What to do when you lose your motivation

You can listen to episode 47 here:

On some days, you feel enthusiastic about learning English. On other days, you keep finding other things that you need to do so that you can avoid your English studies. It’s normal that motivation isn’t the same every day. This episode is based on a German article that Lena wrote for my blog about what to do on days when you don’t feel motivated to learn.

If you speak German, you can read Lena’s article here.

If you don’t speak German, here is a summary of Lena’s tips:

1. Read a book
2. Cook recipes from other countries
3. Listen to music in the language you want to learn
4. Find a tandem partner
5. Set a goal
6. Watch films and tv series in the language you want to learn
7. Travel
