The principle of expediency
Remember the main reason for all failures? Well, this principle will help you overcome it. Just answer yourself the question of how much you need English. “Everyone knows, but I don’t” or “I can watch movies without translation” – the reasons that will not make you pay attention to lessons every day.
Think about what learning English will give you, how worthwhile it is to study it. Self-study can only be successful if you have a high level of motivation. Will your career, education, or the outcome of an important business meeting depend on it? Now that’s a great goal that will get anyone into their books.
The principle of systematicity
Pay attention to the language you want to learn every day. The systematic study will bring results, even if you do 20-30 minutes a day. First, you will form a habit, and not the worst one, you agree. Secondly, frequent repetition contributes to better memorization. If you learned 50 words today and won’t think about English for a week, of those 50 words at best one or two will stay in memory. But if you learn 5 words every day, repeating every day the words you learned before, in 10 days your vocabulary will be 50 words richer.
