Sticking to a plan or following your urges?
Thursday's Thousandth Thought (TTT) #3
Hey dear supporters,
I’m back with some more reflections, this time all about variety and planning in language learning. It’s a topic I’ve always loved to talk about, but also one that’s frustrated me countless times.
You see, I’m rather proud of how I’ve been able to never quit learning languages ever since I began liking it in 2007.
In a way, that’s me sticking to a plan: learning more and more languages and discovering new worlds along the way.
On the other hand, I’ve spent the past 5-6 years vagabonding not only from one language to another, but also from one resource to another, rarely—if ever— sticking to it until the end.
This can be both positive and negative and, obviously, I focus on either depending on my mindset at any given moment.
Why does this matter? What’s awesome in switching resources? What’s incredible in sticking to one for a while? What’s the best option?
Today’s reflection is all about answering these questions.
