A Great Start to a New Decade: #CleartheList February 2020

#clearthelist language learning goals - february 2020

Who knows how long January really lasts; for some people, it takes forever and for others, it seems to fly by. For me, it was the latter this year—I’m surprised to be evaluating last month’s progress already! But, here we are, so let’s go.

Clear the List: December 2019

Whelp, my October ‘resolutions’ didn’t last long, so I’ve decided to go back to a tried-and-true method of keeping myself on track: Clear the List! November’s been a busy month, so I’m hoping to slow down in December, but I’m already thinking ahead to what 2020 might bring…

Well, I am late to the party on this one! Aaaaaaand I didn’t do a great job on my goals last month (unsurprising, with how lofty they were), but I’m here and ready to do something.

Anything.

Clear the List: November 2017

Clear the List: November 2017

Hello, everyone! I’m back (again) and am ready for some studying and blogging this November. It seems like a good idea to find some indoor activities, since it’s getting so cold and dark out!

It’s been a while since I’ve been actively studying my languages, so I thought kicking off with a Clear the List post was the best way to go. So, without further ado, here are my goals for the next month…

Disclaimer: Although November is a 6WC month and I fully intend on studying throughout, I am also taking part in NaNoWriMo so I’m also going to be writing like crazy. My goals are, therefore, going to be a little on the lighter side this time around. 😉

November’s Goals

Study Mandarin for at least 12 hours. – Mandarin is my 6WC language and it’s one I’d really like to improve as I can feel the deterioration ever since I finished my first degree. I’m hoping to study a little every day (here’s to hoping Duolingo gets their course out sometime next month!) to at least refresh, especially when it comes to reading and writing.

Water everything on Memrise. – My poor Memrise plants! As I often do with actual plants, I have neglected them, and I’d like to fix that. I have an awful lot to water (and obviously I want to learn new words too) but hopefully by December, I’ll be starting with a more-or-less blank slate.

Keep up a month-long streak on Memrise, Duolingo, and Clozemaster. – None of these three websites, alone, can help you entirely learn a language, but I like all three and I’d like to get into the habit of using them every day. I have individual point targets on each one that I have to hit, but it doesn’t add up to that much time, especially considering all the downtime I have right now getting to or from work.

Read at least one book/watch a couple of films in German. – I still actively use my German (and I’m going back to Vienna in December, yay!), but I’m now having to make an effort again to maintain it. I’m also not going to hit my Super Challenge targets (better luck next time) but there’s no reason not to keep going!

That’s it for this month–I don’t want to overwhelm myself with everything else I have planned, so this keeps things nice and simple. I’m going to document my 6WC progress throughout November, so I’ll be back at least weekly.

Bye for now! 🙂
