Lesson Transcript

Intro

Peter: Listeners, what if you could learn a language in just 5 minutes a day.
Chigusa: As in, just spend 5 minutes today and that’s it.
Peter: Now, you might think, “Peter, I won’t get fluent like that.”
Chigusa: ...or you might think, “5 minutes? Shouldn’t I be doing longer?”
Peter: And you’d be right. In the long term, it’s going to take more than just 5 minutes a day.
Chigusa: But... what makes the 5 minute rule so powerful is...
Peter: ...listeners, it makes it easy. How? You’re about to find out.
Chigusa: Welcome to an episode of Innovative Language Sunday News! I'm Chigusa and I'll be hosting today's Sunday News with my co-host, the founder of InnovativeLanguage.com... Peter Galante!

Chigusa: Alright, Peter, so first - what is the 5 minute rule?
Peter: Well, Chigusa, actually, it’s a rule I made up for myself while watching YouTube.
Chigusa: YouTube!? I love YouTube. What were you watching?
Peter: To be honest, I don’t really remember, but I was wasting time, so it wasn’t important what I was watching...but how long I was watching it for.
Chigusa: Hmmm, wasting time with YouTube, that really happens.
Peter: ...but it occurred to me... if I had 5 minutes for a YouTube video, if I had 5 minutes for a game on my phone...
Chigusa: ...then you have at least 5 minutes to spend on learning a language.
Peter: Exactly. So, listeners, the rule is: you only need 5 minutes a day to start learning a language.
Chigusa: But why 5 minutes? What’s so special about the number?
Peter: Great question, Chigusa. Here’s what makes it so powerful. First, it makes learning easy. Imagine this.
Chigusa: Okay, I’m imagining.
Peter: It’s Monday morning. You get up. You’re planning your day. You start work at 9 AM. You’ll get lunch at 12 PM. End work around 5 or 6. And you also remember that you promised yourself you’d learn a new language for a few hours.
Chigusa: Hours? I’ll probably start thinking, “I don’t have that kind of time...”
Peter: Exactly. And now, you’ll be dreading it all day long. And if your mindset becomes like that...you won’t enjoy learning.
Chigusa: Very true.
Peter: And even if you put in 2 hours, you’d probably be so tired.
Chigusa: Yeah, if I wasn’t used to it, I think I’d get burned out very, very quickly.
Peter: But with the 5 minute rule, you only have to put...
Chigusa: 5 minutes.
Peter: There you go.
Chigusa: And when the 5 minutes are up?
Peter: You’re done. The heavy burden is lifted.
Chigusa: Yeah, I don’t have to worry about putting in hours. Just 5 minutes, then.
Peter: The second point is, it makes learning easy to continue. If you only have to put in 5 minutes a day...
Chigusa: ...you can do it tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that too.
Peter: Exactly. It gives you a successful routine.
Chigusa: Now, you can actually stick with mastering the language... in the long term.
Peter: And third, you can easily upgrade your routine.
Chigusa: Eventually, you’ll realize that 5 minutes is too easy... and that you can do more.
Peter: Before you know it, 7, 10, or 15 minutes.
Chigusa: ....and you’re now speaking a lot of more of the language.
Peter: Alright, now... here’s how you apply this 5-minute rule.
Chigusa: Listeners, the first thing you should do is... take out your phone, open up the clock application...
Peter ...and set the timer to 5 minutes.
Chigusa: And also... decide when and where you’ll put in the 5 minutes.
Peter: In my case, I’ll do it at home, around 8 PM, at the computer.
Chigusa: Then, start learning with our audio and video lessons.
Peter: They’re anywhere from 3 to 15 minutes long... so it’s really easy to just put in 5 minutes.
Chigusa: You can also review the vocabulary and phrase lists, review the word of the day...
Peter: ...or drill with flashcards for 5 minutes.
Chigusa: Just set aside the time and stick with it until the 5 minutes are up.
Peter: By adding that 5-minute limit, learning becomes much easier...
Chigusa: Yes, you don’t have to stress about spending hours...
Peter: ...and you don’t have to stress about “HOW” to learn. Just play a lesson.
Chigusa: And if you can stick with it, you now have a successful routine.
Peter: By the way, listeners...
Chigusa: ...we’re giving away our “Learn in 5 Minute or Less PDF cheat sheet”...with all the ways and study tools you can use to learn in just a few minutes a day.
Peter: This PDF also includes a monthly calendar you can use to stay consistent with your 5-minute routine.
Chigusa: The point of the calendar is to put in 5 minutes every day, cross that day off when you’re done...
Peter: ....and keep up with the routine. Don’t break the chain.
