Chigusa: Alright, so why is it important to know your reason for learning?
Yuriy: Great question. Listeners, more often than not, your reason is directly related to your goal...
Chigusa: Like... “I want to live in the country where the language is spoken.”
Yuriy: ...or “I want to understand the culture, movies, and music.”
Chigusa: But it can also be something simple like... “I’m just interested in it.”
Yuriy: Exactly. But the point is, if you know your reason...
Chigusa: ...You’ll always remember what got you started in the first place.
Yuriy: And as a result, you’ll maintain your motivation and keep going.
Chigusa: Now, what about sharing your reason with others?
Yuriy: By the way, I don’t mean bragging about goals like “I’ll be fluent in 10 months.” But rather… “I’m learning because…of this and that.” Real reasons.
Chigusa: I see. So why share this with others?
Yuriy: When you talk about your reason for learning with others, you remind yourself indirectly.
Chigusa: Ah, okay, it’ll always be on top of your mind.
Yuriy: So the more you think about it, the more likely you are to do it.
Chigusa: Plus, you set an expectation. Your friends now see you as someone who’s actively learning a language…
Yuriy: ...and that’s another powerful motivator. Also, you convince yourself that you can and will learn the language.
Chigusa: Ah, that’s a good point. A lot of people think they can’t learn a language…
Yuriy: Yeah, they think they don’t have the time for it... or the talent for it.
Chigusa: But in reality, all you need is the confidence to just start
Yuriy: So, by talking about your reason, you also convince yourself that you can do it.
Chigusa: So listeners, what’s your reason for learning? Share it with us.
Yuriy: And if you’re interested in what other language learners are saying...
Chigusa: We’ve asked. Here are the Top 10 Reasons for Learning a Language.
Yuriy: Number One: I love the culture and the people who speak the language.
Chigusa: This is a popular answer, especially amongst our Japanese and Korean learners.
Yuriy: Number Two: I want to understand songs, movies, and TV shows. Also a very popular reason!
Chigusa: That’s right. And listeners – songs, movies, and shows are great ways to immerse yourself in the language!
Yuriy: If you’re spending your time learning AND also immersing yourself, you’re guaranteed to learn faster.
Chigusa: Number Three: It's a beautiful language.
Yuriy: You know, sometimes, an answer as simple as that is good enough.
Chigusa: Yeah, it means you have a genuine interest in the language itself.
Yuriy: Number Four: My family comes from a place where the language is spoken.
Chigusa: The fifth one is similar: I want to speak to my partner's family in their language.
Yuriy: The sixth one is kind of similar: I am learning the language to impress someone.
Chigusa: Listeners, are you learning a language to impress or talk to someone special?
Yuriy: That’s definitely a powerful motivator. The seventh one is... Ah, this one, you should say...
Chigusa: Yes, yes, yes, please let me say it! I love traveling!
Yuriy: Number Eight: I live... or... want to live in a country that speaks the language.
Chigusa: Number Nine: I just love learning languages!
Yuriy: What’s great about this is...if you’ve learned one language... some say, it’s EASIER to learn another.
Chigusa: Because you learn HOW to learn a language, right?
Yuriy: Exactly, Chigusa. If you learn one, you develop the habits and know-how to master another.
Chigusa: And the last one, Number Ten: It’s just a personal goal.
Yuriy: We hear this a lot. Especially from learners that stopped, took a break… and came back.
Chigusa: Yeah, if you have a goal in mind, something you wanted to do, but never did...
Yuriy: ...you want to come back to it and get it done. So, Chigusa, I think most people learn for love, for family…
Chigusa: ...traveling or self improvement!
Yuriy: Listeners, why are you learning? Leave us a comment right now.
