Setting a goal for your English training is the easy part. Finding and setting up the system that will help your reach your English training goal is another question.
Sound familiar? The idea of a “system” is from the book Atomic Habits (in German Die 1% Methode) by James Clear.
What could “system” mean in connection to language learning?
> Taking part in your English training in an active way, including answering questions, taking notes, and telling your trainer if you have questions
> Looking at the notes you wrote in class and any book pages or handouts you covered in class at least two times a week
> Doing homework if your trainer assigns any
> Having contact with English several times a week, for example by reading, listening to, or watching something, or by writing, even if it’s your own personal journal
> Thinking of the English words for things you see and use as you go about your day (for example: street, car, sign, sidewalk, tree, desk, chair, phone, etc.)
> Helping your children with their English homework, or reading their textbook
