Designing Your Language Success Avatar

I’m a big believer in the power of visualizing success, and this applies to any goal you set for yourself, including learning a new language. In the Language Learning Formula, and in my video series and webinars, I talk about the Language Success Avatar; it’s a crucial component in setting realistic, measurable, and specific goals for yourself.

I’m not talking about an avatar like the James Cameron film; I’m talking about visualizing your ideal foreign-language-speaking self, some time in the future. Think of all the details of what you want to look/sound/feel like at some point in the not-too-distant future: where will you be able to go? With whom will you be able to communicate? What situations can you successfully maneuver? What experiences can you have with those skills that you wouldn’t be able to have without speaking that language?

When setting out to learn a language or make strides towards a further goal, be as specific as possible when considering your focus and direction. This success avatar worksheet is designed to guide you towards developing your very own unique learning profile and concrete communicative goals, which can be challenging if you’ve never considered using them before.
