  • 00:00: hi I'm AJ Hoge the director of effortless English it's time for today's student question here's today's question AJ how much should I study English each day this is a great question is super common question students ask me all the time AJ how much should I study English you know 30 minutes a day 40 minutes a day an hour what's the best well the best would be 24 hours a day but of course
  • 00:32: you probably have to sleep eventually and you probably have a life you probably have a job or you're going to school hopefully you have friends maybe have a boyfriend or a girlfriend or a wife or a husband you may have children so you have a busy life so obviously for most people studying English eight hours a day or 10 hours a day it's not possible it's too much and that's okay because it's not necessary so my my best answer
  • 01:01: for you is at least one hour per day total so if you can listen to English study learn English one hour per day that's a good amount that will help you improve improve improve steadily you will improve by doing one hour a day now if you're very busy maybe one hour still seems like a lot like one hour a day that's a lot but it's actually not so tough if you break it into pieces so for
  • 01:32: example one hour a day you could listen to English 15 minutes when you wake up in the morning later when you're going to work or going to school or cleaning the house you could listen to English again for 15 minutes now you have 30 minutes that day then later when you're when you're coming home or your kids go to school or you're you're you're in a bus or driving you could listen another
  • 02:01: 15 minutes now you're up to 45 and then finally before bed you could listen to English again for 15 more minutes that's one hour alright just little small pieces through the day anyone can do that you can certainly do that that gives you the minimum one hour per day do that and your English definitely will improve your listening will improve and your speaking one proof and by the way I don't like this word study study English study has this

  • 03:01: getting better the feeling inside the emotion is play fun happiness well I want you to have that same feeling as you listen to English practice English I want you to play English don't study it so one hour minimum each day if you can do more that's great of course more is better the more you do each day the faster you will improve so if you can do two hours per day again break it into pieces you can do two hours per day
  • 03:31: that's even better three hours per day fantastic five hours a day incredible just remember follow the pattern break things into pieces use your iPod so you can walk and exercise and drive and sit in a bus or a train you can do other things as you listen to English by using an iPod so use these methods at least one hour a day that's the minimum and more is better that's the answer to
