The English Learner’s Manifesto
I want to learn.
I want to succeed.
I want to triumph.
I will be realistic about my goals, because to hurry is to slip.
I will remain positive, because negativity solves nothing.
I will rely on myself, because I am always here to help me.
I will read, because reading is the path to knowledge.
I will listen, because I will learn pronunciation and style.
I will speak, because by speaking, I will think about my words.
I will write, because by writing, I will think about my sentences.
What I Can Do
I can speak words, even if they must be softly, even if to myself; it is better than silence.
I can ask others for help, because unless I ask, I will never know if they can help me.
I can challenge myself, because that will help me expand my boundaries.
I can speak with others, because that will help me develop my confidence.
I can read about specific things I know of, because I can apply my knowledge.
I can learn the patterns of words, because that will help others understand me.
There is no failure; only steps towards success.
There is nothing impossible; only things I have not yet done.
There is nothing lost by trying my best.
I will learn English.
I will succeed.
I will triumph.
