How often do you ask yourself about what you would like to achieve in your professional life and how often do you keep track of what you have done to be able to be where you want to?
When it comes to learning English for better career prospects, many learner would admit that it is lack of fluency that worries them.
Let’s talk about the role of consistency in one's career or business. It is consistency that runs deep throughout business practices and can make a real impact on how your business grows. There is no such thing as success in learning without regular practice. Consistency is an underlying secret sauce to all strategy and one's day-to-day operations. Having said that, if becoming more fluent in English is strategically important for someone's career, why are there still so many learners who do not incorporate regular practice into their lives?
I have been trained adults from all over the world, both in-person and virtually. One part of them would believe that immersion is efficient enough to maintain or elevate language proficiency. Partially right. Coming over to the US several times a year matters if you are planning to work with native speakers, to understand and know more about the local accents and business culture. Undoubtedly, acquiring a foreign language involves a ton of practice, plus being corrected and becoming aware of their common mistakes.
Depending on the frequency of language practice, the results will differ dramatically. One optimal solution for learners who prefer the immersion experience is to implement consistent long-term practice in their home country. Unfortunately, it is too rare . Why? Because motivation turns out to not always be enough.
Another type of adult learners are those who find it to be more cost and time-efficient to make small steps every week, without large breaks in time, and as a result, more productive. They have seemed to be the happiest learners as they are those who reach their professional goals faster and remarkably.
From my point of view, if someone does not have time for something, why is it important ? We always have time for the most important things in our lives, especially when it comes to long-term goals.
At the beginning of the new year, I feel like sharing my knowledge about this research with everyone I know. If you ask me, sticking to reaching a goal is as important as setting it. We become happy when we achieve. Why then do we procrastinate?
