Are you trying to learn a language whilst holding down a full-time job?
Does your free time get eaten up by family commitments, leaving you little time or energy to devote to language learning?
You're not alone. So what is the best way to learn a language?
Finding the best way to learn a language when you're always up against it, is the number one problem faced by language learners today.
But I have some good news for you.
With a small change in mindset you can quite easily fit a solid, effective routine into even the busiest schedule, that will have you learning a language and speaking fluently quicker than you ever thought possible.
You see, it's not your time that's the problem (although I know it seems that way). The problem is how you view what's possible in that time.
Thanks to our outdated school system, we've been raised to view the best way to learn a language as spending long hours sat at a table, heads-down, deep in concentration. And if you're a really busy person, no wonder you're struggling to find the time for that!
But the truth is very different.

Technology has changed everything.
There's now no reason to be sat at a desk or behind your computer to learn a language.
You have more technology in your pocket than was used to put a man on the moon. And with that technology you can adapt your learning to fit your schedule, however long your hours may be.
And the best bit?
When you get away from your desk and start to take your learning out and about with you, a whole host of amazing possibilities open up. You'll start to spend more time than you can possibly imagine immersed in your target language, in a way that's more fun and far more effective than studying at home.
You'll then have more quality time to spend at home in the evening, without worrying about how to fit your language learning into the last remaining hours of the day.
The truth is that you do have enough time.
You just need to know what to do with it.
