Becky: Now, let’s get into these tactics, Peter.
Peter: Listeners, I want use a visual tactic to help you understand what’s coming next. Ready, Becky?
Becky: Ready, Peter.
Peter: I want you to picture a football field. An American football field with large goal posts. The field is about 100 yards. Now, you’re standing on the other side. The goal pasts, Becky, it’s pretty..
Becky: It’s pretty far. It’s pretty big
Peter: RIght? It’s very far in the distance. Now picture 11 players trying to stop you from that goal.
Becky: And they’re big. Big guys with helmets.
Peter: Now, I want you to picture the football field again. Now, you’re one yard. Just one yard away from your goal. Becky, how far away does that goal seem?
Becky: It seems so close!
Peter: And listeners, the first thing we want to talk about is setting small, specific goals.
Becky: For example, “I want to learn how to introduce myself”, or...
Peter: “Speak for 5 minutes of my target language”
Becky: Or... “Complete all 25 lessons of the Beginner series.” So, you start with this small goal, right, Peter?
Peter: Exactly. “I want to learn how to introduce myself” is that 1-yard line goal. You have just 1 yard to get to the goal line. Versus, “I want to be fluent,” which is like starting on the other side of the football field, at the goal post, very far away and 11 people in your way.
Becky: You have to keep your goals small, specific, and easily doable.
Peter: Then, successful learners reach their goals....
Becky: ...with lessons that are perfect for them. How can you do that, listeners?
Peter: Most self-learners go to Google, search, read tons of articles...
Becky: ...and then they get overwhelmed. They don’t learn anything.
Peter: This is where our first new feature comes in. It’s Advanced Lesson Search.
Becky: With this, you’ll find the lessons that are perfect for you.
Peter: For example, If you search “introduce” so that you can learn to introduce yourself...
Becky: ...You instantly get the Audio and Video lessons about introductions.
Peter: Even if you’re looking for certain phrases, topics, or just words that our teachers say inside the lesson...
Becky: You’ll find the lessons instantly.
Peter: Listeners, find Advanced Lesson Search in the top right section of the website.
Becky: Do this right now. Write down a small goal that you want to achieve...
Peter: ...and set a deadline. For example, “finish all 25 Absolute Beginner lessons by March 31st.”
Becky: Find these lessons with Advanced Lesson Search and start learning.
Peter: So, the first tactic is – set a small goal. What’s the second?
Becky: The second tactic is reviewing. Listeners, let’s say you did step one.
Peter: You took your lesson. For example, you learned to introduce yourself.
Becky: ...but to truly perfect what you learn....
Peter: ...you need to come back to that lesson to review.
Becky: This is what successful learners do.
Peter: Exactly. We can actually track users coming back to specific lessons again and again.
Becky: And they’re usually Intermediate or Advanced-level learners...
Peter: So, in other words, the dedicated learners.
Becky: So, to make reviewing super easy for you...
Peter: ...Because you probably don’t remember the lesson you took yesterday...
Becky: You now can see your learning history.
Peter: That means all of the audio lessons you’ve listened to...
Becky: ...the video lessons you’ve watched, and the lesson notes you’ve read...
Peter: ...you can easily access them with your second new feature: My Activity.
Becky: It’s super easy for you to see what lessons you’ve done...
Peter: ...and review them, and perfect your target language.
Becky: Listeners, you’ll find My Activity inside My Account.
Peter: Just click on My Report and look for the activity tab.
Becky: So to recap, one: set a small, specific goal...
Peter: ...then find the lesson that’s perfect for you with Advanced Lesson Search.
Becky: Two: Review with the My Activity feature. And there you have it, listeners.
Peter: Two simple but powerful tactics that successful learners use...
Becky: Apply them right now with our learning system to learn even faster.
