Setting SMART Goals

At Patent Pro English, I like to work with my clients to set SMART goals—Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound—to guide learning. This method helps you focus, track progress, and achieve real results. Below are some examples of SMART goals. What goals would you like to set for your development?

  • Expand Technical Vocabulary: Deepen your industry-specific English knowledge by acquiring 20 new words or phrases each week, equipping you with essential terminology for enhanced professional communication.
  • Master Confident Presentations: Develop the ability to deliver a compelling 10-minute professional presentation in English within two months. Gain confidence and fluency to captivate your audience effectively.
  • Polished Business Email Writing: Compose clear, concise, and professional emails in English, adhering to standard business email etiquette. Aim for a 95% accuracy rate in grammar and formatting by the end of the course.
  • Heighten Listening Comprehension: Enhance your understanding of spoken English in various accents and speeds. Aim for a 20% improvement in comprehension, measured through pre- and post-course listening assessments.
  • Strengthen Negotiation Skills: Acquire the necessary vocabulary and tactics to participate in and lead successful negotiations in English. Achieve a negotiation success rate of 80% or higher based on simulated negotiation scenarios.
  • Improve Pronunciation and Fluency: Refine your pronunciation and fluency to reduce your accent and speak with greater clarity. Attain a minimum score of 8 out of 10 in pronunciation assessments conducted at the beginning and end of the course.
