My Biggest Problem with Learning English. What is it?

Today I have a very long question that I would ask you:

What’s the biggest thing you’re struggling with right now when it comes to learning English?

So in other words: what's your biggest problem about learning English right now? I guess that many of you have Effortless English lessons. You listen to them everyday, I hope so. I'm trying to do the same but sometimes I have a problem... with myself and my motivation. 

I think that's normal. Everyone has good and bad days. Learning English is really hard work. And there is a time when you just don't have enough power to listen AJ Hoge's lessons once again. I'm sure that I'm not alone with this kind of feeling. 

I used to listen to Power English lessons during my everyday travel to my job, but when it's rainy or cold like now (Winter is coming!), I'm just leaving my headphones at home and going to my job in silence. 

That sounds strangely and sadly, but I'm just a human, not machine.

Ok, so that's the BIGGEST problem with learning English that I have. It's motivation. What kind of problems you have? Please do not afraid to write in the comments and share your experience. 

Maybe you have some good tips for me how to stay motivated and focused, huh?

Prefer video?

    1. Two weeks is a short time. You need to feel relaxed about listening to Effortless English lessons. I felt a big improvement after 5-6 months. Remember that you are going to learn English deeply.

    2. In the beginning try to listen to first lesson set for one week. When you feel that you MASTER it, go to the next set. I was doing like that and it worked.

  4. Sometimes I have the same problem and I don't want to listen to the same topic ones again. So I just start listening AJ podcasts or audio from another lesson set. Or sometimes I listen to different audio from the internet such as podcasts, radio, lectures of any university, etc. I am trying to find some really interesting stuff for me. If I am too tired after my job and can't study I just watch an interesting movie in English. Then later when I feel ready I go back to AJ's lesson and learn it deeply.
    Also you can find interesting information according to lesson which you study at this particular time. For instance, let's take the first lesson "Day of the dead". There a lot of interesting photos, videos and articles about the Day of the dead on the internet. So you can watch them first and when you listen to AJ's audio it will be easier for you to imagine a colorful picture of the celebration.
    Anyway I have a really problem with my writing. Do you have any ideas how to improve it without studying grammar?

    1. Your tips are really great. I will try to follow some of them. Thank you!

      Probably the best way to improve your writing skills is reading. So read a lot, only interesting stuff for you. But I think that also writing such a post like you did it's also a good way to be better writer.

  5. I want to add one more. Please, don't be afraid of breaking rules. Even AJ's rules. You have to have fun with English. So if you don't like a lesson just skip it, move on. Enjoy yourself and English.

    1. Yes, you are right. Break rules, sometimes even AJ's rules. Very good point.

      Delete
    2. correctly! try to break the rule is so much important, because when you try to do that, then also means your brain works! In Taiwan,sometimes i think a bunch of people feel boring with English, cause they memorize the words or phrases by rote, but not enjoy to know about the culture and knowledge in different countries, and the later is most important perspective i think ^^

    1. Probably the best way to not lose motivation is to using interesting materials for you. Follow topics, people etc. Learning English uses only English lessons is not enough in my opinion. You need to take some extra action.

  10. i have the same problem sometimes it is not easy to replay and listen again.you get tired especially when you have others work to do i think motivation is a biggest problem
    ...keeping yoursef motivated all the time is not an easy task but i think we should never stop keep moving forward is better then leaving your dream like aj always say that physiology is the important part of success

  20. you know i advice you to take a time out for couple of days. you can add the motivation for example by listening to musics you like. not just listen, find the words of the music, sing it loudly yourself too...
    it seems to me that it could be helpful for you
