Good News 😄 A Study Plan that Works


If you’re not learning English as quickly as you would like to or if you feel like your Fluency is stuck at the same level then It is partly because of your study routine in this English lesson I am going to share with you how to improve your study routine to Facilitate your English learning so that you can learn English easier and much faster The best thing is that it’s actually enjoyable to have a good study routine and it’s free Creating a good study routine doesn’t cost anything So follow my advice if you’d like to improve your English speaking skills. I’m going to share my own suggestions for your English study routine I’m going to share a special formula that I’ve created for my own study routine and what a study routine should be and should not be if you’d like to learn more with me in the complete go natural English course for Fluency and confidence in English. The wait list to join is now open. You can join the waitlist at gonaturalenglish.com Pre-reg you’ll get information about the benefits of the course and a notification when registration opens now Let’s talk about your study routine. What’s really interesting is that study routines are? Really not talked about in most English classes or any kind of classes at all Yet they are so critically important to successfully learning any subject So this is a very important thing to master a study routine Means time that you set aside to study Consistently a routine means something that you do over and over so it’s not a one-and-done Activity a study routine could refer to how you study by the hour The day by the week the month the year, but hopefully you’re studying more than once a year So we’re gonna talk more about how to develop your daily study routine It’s proven to be more effective to study a little bit Every day than to cram once a week or before a big event The idea is to make your routine consistent over time so that it becomes a habit Something that is easy and automatic for you something that becomes part of your lifestyle Let’s talk about what a good study routine is and is not you might think that a study routine is painful and boring but it’s not a good study routine is actually enjoyable and easy Something that you can do consistently over time So it’s actually better to commit to less study time That would be easy for you to meet and exceed Rather than trying to commit to too much study time and set yourself up for failure So let’s set you up for success if you think that you could dedicate 30 minutes per day to studying English well Let’s start with 20 minutes a day because that’s something that I know you will be successful at and then if you exceed 20 minutes and study for 30 You’re gonna feel really good about yourself. So it’s better to start shorts or small with your study time and develop consistency so that each day builds on the last a good study routine means you’re focused on one thing only you’re not checking social media or email or Reading something while you’re listening to something else multitasking is Really bad during study time. So make sure you’re not talking to a friend on the phone or Unless they’re helping you study, but you really have to be focused on one thing and the really interesting thing Is that the more you focus the last? It takes to master that task your study sessions should be building up Towards a larger goal over time one big mistake that I’ve seen a lot of English learners make is that they just sit down at their desk during study time without any real goal and they say Okay. I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes. That means I’ve studied for 20 minutes. Why am I not learning? Well, it’s because you don’t know where you’re going with your studies. You don’t have a goal in mind And so that’s why you’re not really learning Just having your butt in your seat at your desk is the first step, but after that We really need to have a plan I’m gonna talk more about that towards the end of this lesson and really your study routine should be enjoyable Some people think that studying has to be difficult. It has to be painful has to be a challenge Yes, it can be a challenge. But how about a good challenge? Have you ever enjoyed? Achieving something that was difficult I think actually we enjoy achieving things that are more difficult if it’s super easy Well, we still can enjoy them, but maybe not as much So anyway, you should make your study time enjoyable by having some Consistent enjoyable thing that you do while you study for example I enjoy having a cup of coffee or tea or maybe you start your study session with some music that you enjoy Preferably music that does not have lyrics in it because that can distract your mind while you’re studying so maybe some some classical music or electronic music that you enjoy a good study routine is not Actually super ambitious because this sets you up for failure Don’t write down in your calendar that you’re going to study for three hours every day when you know, that’s not realistic Make sure that your study time is super realistic and achievable For you in your present life Don’t try to do too much at once Because you might get burnt out and that is not the result that you want a good study session is not Just sitting at your desk. Remember we have to have a goal and a good study routine is Not painful. It should be something that you actually look forward to doing as I mentioned You can help train your brain to look forward to your study routine by involving a cup of coffee or tea or a song that you enjoy or Always have a special space that’s consistent for your study routine Maybe you make your desk really pretty by putting some pictures on it that you like for my own study routine I’ve created an acronym that spells used Too because I get used to my study routine and that makes it a habit. I Understand my bigger goals. I Schedule my studies for the same time each day that helps me to build a routine. I Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. I develop my skills over time I try new materials to challenge myself and I own my Results, I understand that I’m responsible for the outcome of my study sessions that spells used to So you could use this acronym if you find it helpful for you to here’s an example of how I would suggest You set up your English study time first write down your big English goals may be something like you want to be fluent in English so that you can give a presentation at school or at work or Whatever your big goal is don’t be shy write it down to break down that goal into weekly and daily Study sessions that will help you reach that bigger goal over time. Take your time with this again It’s better to write down your study sessions moving more slowly Than to rush yourself and maybe not give yourself enough time third choose materials that can help you reach your goals Watch go natural English videos or outside of go natural English. You could find TV shows movies Podcasts songs or other media in that help you to develop your vocabulary and fluency next test your understanding How much of these materials are you really understanding 5 try your own? Examples, of course when you’re learning English You don’t only want to be able to listen and read right? You want to be able to write and speak to express yourself as well? Now this is where you need help from someone else But there’s one way that I do suggest getting feedback on your own which is to record yourself Speaking because often when you listen to yourself on playback, you can catch your own mistakes similarly with writing you can Proofread your own writing and you often will catch your own mistakes This is a great way for you to give yourself feedback even before consulting your teacher next give yourself time to reflect on your Accomplishments how far you have come in English so far how much you have learned and then decide? what you want to learn tomorrow and Finally number 8 build each day after you reflect on your progress You can decide what you want to work on more tomorrow as you build a really successful great study routine be patient with yourself and Understand that when you enjoy the journey of building your English skills, you will be more successful More easily much faster it all comes down to building a good habit and a good study routine So, I hope that this was helpful for you.

How Rachael & David Burtka Are Working With RED and ONE To Help the Fight Against AIDS


The last time we were together I think was at your house for a party? Yes, yes! We did not make chicken top pie. No, but everybody would have loved it, right? (Laughs) Exactly. GZ was cooking.
It was fabulous food. Yes, yes, yes, yes. You guys cooked together. We cooked together. Yes, that’s right. But the reason that you guys threw that party, other than just hanging out with buds, is the reason we’re all wearing red and cooking with red today. Yes, it’s all about red. (RED) organization, for sure. Right. So you guys. Do you remember when Bono started the whole (RED) campaign where if you bought red items, the money went to AIDS relief, right? Yes. And AIDS research and getting the right drugs out there all over the planet earth. And to be eradicated. It’s not over. The fight is not over. So that’s why we’re wearing red. These are my red products. They come out October 2nd as part of my contribution to the (RED) campaign. And we’re doing red everything. We’ve got red pots and pans. We’ve got red cruits. We’ve got red dishes. Look at all this. We’re going red for a reason. (crowd cheers) Rachael Ray, what a good idea. Okay, so now. Such a good idea. So you guys you know the reason we wanted to do this show as early in the season for us as possible, is because in October. October’s a really big month for Congress right? Yes, yes. Because it’s the One organization, One works with (RED) and (RED) works with One. One and (RED) work together, and every three years we have to re-up our ante. Our commitment, right? Yes. Our financial commitment. So we have to get our Congress to vote every three years to keep the funding going. The dollar for dollar match between (RED) and One, right? Exactly. So the deadline for that is coming up in October, and guys we worked this out on our website, right? So you can go to our website, and we will link you there. It’s all set and ready for you. (crowd cheers) We’re all helping out. We need to do our part, for sure. And I don’t think that people realize that AIDS is the leading cause of death of women 15 to 49. The leading cause of death in the world today women between 15 and 49. Gives me chills. And you know that 400 babies a day are born with HIV. Four hundred babies a day. The job is so not over. It can be over within our lifetime, but it takes all of us. And would takes that commitment, right? Yes, it gives me chills. To eradicate. It really does. It gives me chills. Good, good chills. So (crowd cheers) (soft chimes) (crowd cheers)
