Language level

Upper intermediate: B2


What motivate me is that when i got what i planned for done successfully. in that case it give me motivation to achieve something new.

I have finished the intermediate level and it was easy for me . Now , in this level i could get only 5 out 8 correct.

I understand most of what the conversation but when it come to answer the exercises i found it a little bit difficult.

Any advice and recommendations

Hello nabily

I wouldn't worry -- some things within B2 are closer to B1 and some are closer to C1. The main thing is to keep working and to learn from your mistakes. In this way, you will advance for sure!

All the best

what motivated me, in general, is to remember the goal I set it. when I give up and start to procrastinate I remember the goal that gives me the energy to keep going and work whatever happens

Improving my self is the most important motive for me because in this life we always facing difficulties and I need to prepare my self for it.

Actually my goals motivate me in most cases , when I want to reach specific achievements like learning English to have a good job ,I work hard without any incentive from anyone , I can get motivated also when I’m interested in what I’m doing and also I’m agree to that having enough time to get tasks done without stress makes me more creative, good and especial results makes me proud regardless any incentive

What I like the most is to be included into complex projects where I can get some new and fresh ideas or where I can develop my management skills.
If I have the chance to select the members of my team and organise the schedules when we are going to be connected, I will be absolutely engaged.

In my opinion, I say that motivation is important for the person to receive the result after a great effort he did in his work. On the other hand, the person must be open to himself and work diligently in order to relax mentally.

It depends. For the current job , the incentives work. If it is related to my future, just the ambition motivates me.

it is often deplorable when you have to work twice as much as the others to be up to the task but it should not weaken us
