    而我的回答則是「 不會啦,你肯定不會啦」

  • That's what you believe and that's what you keep saying to yourself."

    其實那是你一廂情願的想法,加上你不斷這樣告訴你自己

  • So that's not a really good mindset to have

    這其實不是一個正確的心態

  • because it closes you off from opportunities

    有些人會說,喔, 我要在六個月內讓英語講的很流利

  • What is realistic for you?

  • I spend studying English and practicing English everyday."

    此外,目標也要很具體

  • General goals are no good.

    泛泛的目標並不是好目標

  • For example, some people say,

    喔,未來六個月我要學更多英文

  • I need to study English more."

    我必須學更多英文

  • And that's really, really general.

    它真的,真的很空泛

  • That's not a good kind of goal.

    這也不是好目標

  • The best goal is something that is time-bound and measurable.

    最佳的目標是有時間限制,而且可以衡量。

  • For example, "In the next 6 months, I'm going to make sure that I study English

  • your development, your health and your happiness,

    你的發展、你的健康和你的快樂具有意義的目標

  • and especially to those around you.

    舉例來說,如果你喜歡打電動,你可以設定

  • that you want to get the highest score in a video game,

    你要在這個遊戲拿到最高分

  • well, that only benefits you and it's really not that meaningful.

    不過,那只對你個人有利,而它意義也不大

  • But imagine if you achieved English fluency over time.

    反之,想像一下,如果未來隨著時間,英文越發流利

  • Wow, the benefits are amazing!

    哇, 好處可是很驚人

  • You know what those are, right?

    你知道什麼是筆和紙,對吧?

  • We don't use them as much these days but for this exercise it's very important.

  • Write it down in bold ink.

  • And this process of writing it down helps you to take your idea

    你可以做的便是從今天開始執行

  • Today you set a goal to do some listening or some active speaking
