The Linguist Manifesto for English learners

Have you studied English for many years?

Are you still afraid to speak English?

Please study this and repeat it to yourself daily.

I can be FLUENT in English.

My goal is to be FLUENT.

My goal is not to be perfect.

My goal is just to be FLUENT.

I can be FLUENT and still make mistakes.

FIRST I must FORGET what I learned in school.

I will make a FRESH start.

I will FORGET the rules of grammar.

I will FORGET the quizzes and tests.

I will FORGET all the times I made mistakes.

I will FORGET what my teachers taught me.

I will FORGET my native language.

I will FORGET who I am.

I am a new person.

I am an English speaker.

I will make a FRESH start.

I will have FUN!

I will FOCUS on things that are FUN and interesting.

I will learn.

I will LEARN how to LEARN.

I will LISTEN a lot.

I will LET myself go.

I will LISTEN and LET the English LANGUAGE enter my mind.

I will LISTEN often.

I will LISTEN every day.

I will LISTEN to the same content many times.

I will LISTEN to the meaning.

I will LISTEN to hear the words and phrases.

I will LISTEN early in the morning.

I will LISTEN late at night.

I will UNDERSTAND the language.

I will UNDERSTAND what I hear and read.

If I UNDERSTAND what I hear and read I will be able to speak and write.

UNTIL I can UNDERSTAND what I hear and read, I will not be able to speak and write well.

But there is no hurry.

I will work on UNDERSTANDING.

I will read a lot and especially, listen a lot.

I want to UNDERSTAND the meaning of English.

I do not want to UNDERSTAND the rules of grammar.

EVERY day is a learning day.

EVERY day the language is ENTERING my brain.

I ENJOY reading and listening EVERY day.

I study with ENERGY and ENTHUSIASM.

I study interesting things and ENJOY the language.

If I ENJOY the language I will improve.

Let the language ENTER my mind.

There is no need to push myself.

I am getting better EVERY day.

I will NEVER say that I am NO GOOD.

When I read and listen I will tell myself “NICE GOING”!

I will learn NATURALLY and easily.

I will be NICE to myself.


If I make a mistake I will say “NEVER MIND”.

If I cannot understand something I will say “NEVER MIND.”

If I forget a word I will say “NEVER MIND.”

If I have trouble saying what I want to say , “NO PROBLEM”.

I will continue.

I will TRUST myself.

I will be confident.

Confident learners improve quickly.

I will TREAT myself with respect.

I will TELL myself that I am doing well.

I just need to keep going, no matter what.

The more I listen and read using THE LINGUIST, the more I will understand.

The more words and phrases I save the more I will know.

Soon I will be ready to speak and write well.

I will take it easy.

I know I will succeed.
