Learn to love English Language: Self-motivation for IELTS test takers – by tojan
Many students start preparing for IELTS exam with dreams of immigration and higher studies in foreign nations. The students who go for Masters in science and medicine fare better in the exams, as the first language in their degree course is English. This is not so for other students. The students preparing for immigration find it very difficult to get required score in IELTS exam. There are a few reasons for it. The major one is the high expectations of improving English within a short period of one month. The other one is the influence of native language in English grammar and accent.
These two major issues demotivate a candidate who attempt IELTS exam. During training, they feel learning English is not their cup of tea and they somehow want to pass the exam. These negative thoughts bring their motivational levels further down and register in their subconscious mind that they can’t master English language. They soon crash land and let their dreams to die.
For those who feel learning English language for IELTS exam is too tough to learn let me ask them a question. Is it possible to learn a skill without a passion for it? Have you loved English language?
Learn first to love English language. Make your mind ready and commit yourself to spend your time in improving language skills. Set your goals beyond IELTS exam. Make an oath to learn English language within a month or two than mere pass IELTS exam. You will get good IELTS score if you know English language well.
When you are determined to win, you have to give back your energy and time to acquire it. Acquiring a skill is not free. You have to give up your evenings with friends, parties, TV shows and cinemas for it. You have to allocate a definite time and plan for it. Such dedication and self-motivation can make you to master English language within a short period of time.
So don’t give away when things get tougher and harder to achieve. Take time and learn. Form a good strategy and proceed. Use proven techniques for improving English language. Then only you can become the real master …a master who mastered English language and his own mind.
