When I set my language goals for 2017 I also started to think of an effective way to break them down into manageable bits. The #clearthelist blog linkup is a great way to keep track of what I need to do and to improve, and to make myself accountable at the same time. So here we go!
In February I want to focus more on listening, as I have been neglecting it in favour of vocab building.
I am going to listen to songs in Swedish for at least 2 hours a week, and look for a vlogger talking about a topic of my interest, or everyday life, to engage in passive listening.
Also I want to master 600 expressions on Memrise – Swedish 3, and complete two lessons a week each on Babbel and Learningswedish.se.
Finally, I will start working on the Rivstart textbooks I just received for my birthday! By the end of the month I want to create a learning routine with these study books that works for me.
Time to put into practice the excellent tips to create an effective language learning habit from Angel at FrenchLover!
This month I am going to write journal entries in French at least twice a week, find one/two blogs to follow and collect vocabulary I don’t know on Readlang to practice it later. For listening practice I will watch two videos, or one movie, a week.
Though Japanese is my biggest love, lately I have been struggling with motivation. This month I am going to research one topic in Japanese every week and practice reading. Then I will experiment with different resources to practice the kanji I don’t remember. To polish my listening understanding I am going to watch at least two movies in Japanese in February.
Alright, goal setting is done. Time to get working on these!
