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.
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 that works for me with these books.
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!
