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.

Peter: So the way the 5 minute rule goes 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. Picture this…. Chigusa: Okay… Peter: It’s Monday morning. You get up. You’re planning your day. You start working at 9 AM. You’ll get lunch at 12 PM. End work around 5 or 6. It’s a pretty long day. Now you also promised yourself that you’re going to try to learn a new language for a few hours after work. Chigusa? Chigusa: A few hours? I don’t know if I actually want to do a few hours after work… Peter: Exactly. And if you promised yourself that you’d learn this language… I don’t think you’d feel too excited about this goal right now, right? Chigusa: Yeah, now I don’t know if I actually want this goal. Peter: And if your mindset becomes like that …you won’t enjoy learning. Chigusa: And I probably won’t exactly succeed with my goal as well. Peter: You said it. Which is why… it’s not helpful to try and put in hours at the start. And even if you put in 2 hours, you’re probably going to be so tired that it may not even stick. Chigusa: Yeah, if I wasn’t used to it, I think I’d get burned out very, very quickly. Peter: So, with the 5 minute rule, you only have to do 5 minutes. Chigusa: And when the 5 minutes are up? Peter: You’re done. The heavy burden is lifted. goal accomplished. Chigusa: Yeah, I don’t have to worry about putting in hours. Just 5 minutes, then. Peter: So, the 5 minute rule makes learning easy to start. Now, the second point is, it makes learning easy to continue. If you only have to put in 5 minutes a day, you can do it tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that too. Chigusa: It gives you a successful routine. Peter: Exactly. You can actually stick with mastering the language… in the long term. And 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, and you’re now speaking a lot more of the language. Alright, listeners… 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 Minutes 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.
