Do any of these sound familiar?

"I'm just not where I should be in languages, somehow everyone else seems to make better progress than me."
"I don't have a talent for languages."
"I don't know if I'm learning languages in the right way."
"I struggle to remember things and my language skill just isn't coming along."

Like a narrative, a mindset is the mental filter you add to everything that happens in your life.

In today's episode, we explore how you can

  • Change the script on your doubts so that they become encouraging ideas
  • Work with a growth mindset to use psychology to support yourself in language learning
  • Develop a successful mantra to help you get over a moment when you're stuck


Plus, we've got woo-woo affirmations and the new and improved version of the CEFR: the Bambi scale.
