I have a question. Currently I am walking through a bad “learning” period.
My question is, how I can keep attention high. I believe my English doesn’t grow up.
And this situation make me depressed and sad.
Do you have any advice?
And one which I have a lot of experience with. Or rather I should say, this is something I have struggled with a lot of in the past.
In this article I’ll discuss how the brain works regarding motivation and ‘mental energy’. I’ll also talk about HOW you can keep yourself motivated (and have more mental energy). Finally, I’ll recommend some great resources (that I have used).
I’ll start by talking about the reason why intermediate ~ advanced learners just “stop” improving…
But first, a small quiz. Fill in the blanks:
“The _______________ I do, the _______________ I get done.”
You can use any combination of the following three words: ice-cream | less | more
You can use each word as many times as you like. And you don’t have to use all the words.
Really think about this. Because it’s important. I’ll tell you the answer later in this article.
A common problem all intermediate ~ advanced English learners have is feeling like they have just ‘stopped’ improving.

If you want to know more about this topic…
I recommend this course by Ryan Levesque and Dr. Beverly Yates.
I’ve been through it myself (twice, actually), and it’s made a huge difference in my life. In fact it’s the reason I started running every day… among other things.
It’s not free. But it’s definitely worth checking out. You’re learning will never be better than your brain’s limits. So if you want to do a lot of good quality learning… it’s worth extending your brain’s limits.
