I feel that my language learning has become really stale recently. With Chinese, I’ve not been taking any lessons in a month because I’ve had my improv classes. With German, I’ve just not been that motivated recently.
But learning languages is one of those things that if you look at it from the outside, you can’t find the energy to do it. But if you just jump into it anyway, every small success makes you crave more.
SO I have decided to give myself a challenge. I know of this website called All Japanese, All the Time. The guy writing it is a little cocky/patronising/ugh sometimes but basically, he taught himself Japanese in 18 months by doing everything he wanted to do in Japanese. Books, music, tv, games… the lot.
I have been wonde
ring if I should do this with German and Chinese… and even Japanese, too. I can’t do all of them at the same time, so I might try one of them, for a 2 week period.
I’m going to start this with German (since it’s the easiest!!) from Monday. Wish me luck! I’ll be posting about my progress often, of course!
