Level Up English Podcast Episode 195 The Intermediate Plateau

The Intermediate Plateau

The intermediate plateau is a term used to describe a period somewhere between Beginner and Advanced levels in language learning where it feels like progress has stopped. No matter how much you study, it feels like you never improve.

In this episode, I talk about why this might happen, some tips on how to move up to the advanced levels, and about my personal experience with this too.

Some Ideas

  1. Don’t give up hope! It’s normal
  2. Increase the time you spend studying
  3. Change your method and routine 
  4. Evaluate what you’re doing (is it effective?)
  5. Consider your weak areas
  6. Are you focused or getting distracted?
  7. Reevaluate your goals for learning
  8. Make your routine fun!
  9. Remember that progress jumps up inconsistently 
  10. If you’re comfortable, make it harder, just exercising at the gym
  11. Find a way to enjoy the language again and get really curious about it 
  12. Speak with someone from the country

What got you here, won’t get you there
