Intro

Becky: Listeners, there are 2 things that ultimately dictate your language learning success.
Peter: But what are they? You’re going to hear all about them, as well as about our brand new feature.
Becky: Welcome to an Innovative Language Learning Sunday News! I'm Becky and I'll be hosting today's Sunday News with my co-host, the founder of InnovativeLanguage.com... Peter Galante!
Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here!
Becky: In this Sunday News, you’ll learn all about My Report, a brand new feature that tracks your study stats...
Peter: ...and how it will motivate you to keep going and master your target language.
Body
Peter: Listeners, how much time and effort have you put into language learning?
Becky: The reason we ask is because there are 2 things that separate beginners...
Peter: ...from advanced speakers. Anybody that has reached fluency....
Becky: ...has simply put more time into learning than a beginner!
Peter: That’s it. Time and effort.
Becky: And today, we’re talking about a brand new feature.
Peter: One that tracks your language learning, gives you your personal study stats...
Becky: ...and motivates you to keep going. We’ll get to that in a second...

Becky: Or anybody that’s extremely talented in one thing...
Peter: They all have this in common. They probably weren’t born with it.
Becky: They simply put in more time and effort than the average person.
Peter: So the only thing standing between you and mastering your target language...
Becky: ...Is simply putting in more time and effort. These are the 2 things that will dictate your language learning success.
Peter: And listeners, this is where our newest feature comes in.
Becky: It’s called ”My Report” and you can find it in “My Account”.
Peter: If you’re on the site, click on My Account in the upper right-hand corner....
Becky: ...Then, click on the “My Report” tab. There, you’ll find 3 key stats –
Peter: One: The total time you’ve spent studying with us, measured in days, hours and minutes.
Becky: Two: The number of flashcards you’ve studied...
Peter: ...and Three: the number of lessons you’ve completed.
Becky: And there’s even a day-by-day breakdown of how many lessons and flashcards you’ve studied...
Peter: ...and how much time you spent learning.
Becky: So this will literally keep track of the time and effort you’ve put into learning your language.
Peter: Which is great for motivation. You’re more likely to succeed when you know how much work you’ve invested in a language.
Becky: Peter, the whole concept of spending more time on something reminds me of that Albert Einstein quote.
Peter: Which one, Becky?
Becky: He said, “It’s not that I’m smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” He kept going. And he stayed and put in time and effort.
Peter: Great quote Becky. That’s also like the one from Thomas Edison.
Becky: Hard work is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration.
Peter: So you have to put in the time. Listeners, here’s a tip. Set a small, measurable goal.
Becky: ...like studying for at least 10 minutes a day. With My Report, you can easily hit that goal...
Peter: ...because you can now track how much time you’ve spent studying...
Becky: ...and your language will only get better with enough time.

I am fairly happy with the results of "my report," as I know it's only part of my total. This is a great feature, I have been wondering about my progress.


However, I'm not really sure what number is good or bad. There is that nagging suspicion that I'll never be fluent. Instead, I'm just focusing on always moving forwards, just being better with Japanese every day.
