What does it take to learn English successfully?

3) "I know that I can learn effectively only if I like what I'm doing." One of the main ingredients for success is fun and humour. If you just study hard, forcing yourself to try to cram grammar and vocabulary into your head, you're bound to fail. Of course, you can exercise your willpower and discipline yourself to acquire a few English words by heart, but how long can you keep that up? Sooner or later you will get frustrated and quit. Later in this book, you will find suggestions for how you can make your language activities fun and how humour can help you maintain momentum.
