12 Summary of Week 1
This week you have looked at your motivation, some of the barriers you might come across when learning a language, and strategies to deal with them. You might have started setting yourself some SMART goals, using the CEFR as a map.
You should now be able to:
- visualise your ‘future language self’ and set SMART goals
- think about how realistic your aims are, map your journey and consider how long it will take
- understand possible barriers to your success and how to deal with them.
Before you go any further, reflect on the following: what does learning a language actually involve?
Next week, Olly will talk you though this question, drawing on his experience of learning languages.
You can now go to Week 2.
