How to Stay Motivated Learning a Language

Motivation is the key to success

Learning a new language is not an easy task. You might have the time and the resources, but without motivation, you’re going to struggle to stay focused. We’ve put together our most fascinating TedTalks to keep you engaged, and teach you how to stay motivated learning a language.

For those of you who don’t know, TedTalks are mini-presentations and speeches given by industry experts. And let’s face it, they’re pretty good! The guest speakers explain their specialised topic for 10-15 minutes, and there is always a lesson to learn.

There are TedTalks about everything, from understanding schizophrenia to climate change, to economics. And when it comes to the subject of motivation, the speeches are… motivating!
