“I want to use English,” my students say, “but I don’t have anyone to talk to apart from you.”
“What about writing a diary?” I suggest.
“I never keep to it. I always abandon it after a week or so.”
In which case, here are some other suggestions.
The first one is from my student who makes her to-do list in English every day. It’s a daily habit and it means she keeps using English and it has to be clear.
Next is the logbook, which is not quite a diary, but a list of the things you have done. It might be a list of the study activities you have done, or in the case of the artist Austin Kleon, a list of all the day’s notable activities. I keep one about this website (in English, my mother tongue) and one about my running (in Japanese, my second language). I have found that the more you do this, the more motivated you become to keep going with your goals so it’s definitely worth trying.
If you know any other easy ways to use English every day leave a comment to share your idea with others.
