The best way to predict your future is to create it

As the famous philosopher and educator Abraham Lincoln once said, “The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

This is particularly true when it comes to proactivity in language learning.

Learning a new language can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to developing proficiency in English, which is often a requirement for many jobs in today’s global market. However, with a proactive approach to learning and the right support, anyone can create a future that is full of opportunities.

Taking the initiative in language learning starts with setting clear goals and taking the necessary steps to achieve them.

It’s important to have a clear understanding of why you want to learn English and what you hope to achieve through your language skills. Whether it’s to advance your career, communicate with international clients, or simply to travel and explore new cultures, having a clear goal in mind can help you stay motivated and focused on your language-learning journey.

Another important aspect of proactivity in language learning is being creative to find the most effective learning opportunities and resources for you. This might mean attending language classes, finding a language exchange partner, or even watching English-language movies or TV shows. It’s also REALLY important to actively engage with the language and seek out opportunities to practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English as many times as you can.

As well as being in control of your own learning journey, it’s also important to have the right support and resources in place.

Working with a language coach or tutor can be incredibly helpful, as they can provide personalized guidance and support that is tailored to your individual needs and learning style. A language coach can help you identify areas for improvement, set achievable goals, and develop a customized learning plan that is designed to help you achieve your language learning objectives. They can also help overcome some limiting beliefs and can be pretty awesome mindset challengers!

One of the key benefits of working with a language coach or tutor is that they can provide you with ongoing feedback and support. They can help you identify areas where you need to improve and provide you with targeted exercises and activities to help you build your skills. They can also help you track your progress and celebrate your successes along the way, which can be incredibly motivating and inspiring.

Of course, being in control of your own language-learning journey also requires a certain level of self-discipline and dedication. Learning a new language is not always easy, and there will be times when you feel frustrated or discouraged. However, by staying committed to your goals, staying positive and upbeat, and continuing to seek out new opportunities to learn and grow, you can create a future that is full of opportunities and success.
