<p>Do any of these sound familiar?</p>

<blockquote>
<p>&quot;I&#39;m just not where I should be in languages, somehow everyone else seems to make better progress than me.&quot;<br>
&quot;I don&#39;t have a talent for languages.&quot;<br>
&quot;I don&#39;t know if I&#39;m learning languages in the right way.&quot;<br>
&quot;I struggle to remember things and my language skill just isn&#39;t coming along.&quot;</p>
</blockquote>

<p>Like a narrative, a mindset is the mental filter you add to everything that happens in your life. </p>

<p>In today&#39;s episode, we explore how you can</p>

<ul>
<li>Change the script on your doubts so that they become encouraging ideas</li>
<li>Work with a growth mindset to use psychology to support yourself in language learning</li>
<li>Develop a successful mantra to help you get over a moment when you&#39;re stuck</li>
</ul>
