How to Find Time to Study Foreign Languages?

What to do if you have a desire to learn a foreign language, but there is absolutely no time for this! How to plan your day properly and find time for language classes?

Do you work all day, and household chores eat up all the rest of your free time? Do not despair! Finding time to study a foreign language is still possible and not so difficult.

The main problem is poor planning.

Problem number 1 is not a lack of time at all, but improper planning. Just believe, if you adjust slightly your usual schedule, there will be time for a lesson.

Your studying will directly depend on the level of language proficiency. For those who are just at the beginning of their learning way, we advise studying 2-3 times a week. The duration of the lesson can vary from 45 to 60 minutes. This period of time is optimal for beginners. You will not be tired of the process and learn all the material very easily.

For those, who are already familiar with the language, but still are not confident in their abilities, classes should last from 60 to 90 minutes. It is better to have them 2 times a week to develop your skills. This will help you feel comfortable in the language environment and overcome communication barriers.

Well, for people who speak a foreign language at a high level, it would be good to study at least once a week for 60 - 90 minutes. Such classes will help keep the language in shape and practice speaking.

On the Lingava platform, you can always find the optimal time and duration of the classes. The lesson can be 45, 60 and 90 minutes long. Well, if this time is not enough for you, then you can always hold a longer meeting. There are no restrictions in the system. You may practice even 3 hours!

A lot does not mean good.

Therefore, daily activities do not always bring good results. Of course, if you go on vacation in a month and you want to amaze everyone there with your knowledge of the language, then daily classes will be just the best. And if the time is not so tight, go to full-fledged classes 2-3 times a week.

If a busy working week does not allow you to find time for studying, then classes on the weekends are the best variant for you.

Regular language courses will not be able to provide you with a convenient schedule as they usually do not work on weekends. But on the Lingava platform, you can practice whenever and wherever it is good. If you have time for lessons only at the weekend, here you can study on Saturdays and Sundays.

Moreover, if you are working on a flexible schedule, then you can adjust the schedule as you wish. On Lingava, you can choose any work schedule, even the most non-standard.

Find time even if there is none!

To learn a language just take it with you! What does it mean? Everything is very simple. It turns out that you can learn languages without making huge adjustments to your daily plans.

In the morning, lying in a bed, you can revise some words or just look around the room and remember the names of all objects. In the shower, you can sing a couple of foreign songs, watch the news at a breakfast time or listen to the foreign weather forecast.

On the way to work, listen to a podcast and review new words and phrases. You won't even notice how your way to work turns into an exciting journey!

In the evening, you can watch a series in your favorite language or read a couple of pages in a book. And one more important thing, put your mobile into the language you learn. At first, of course, it will be a little difficult. But you know your phone perfectly, and in such a way you will also learn a couple of new words!

This is an example of your ordinary day - English is everywhere. Don't be afraid, experiment! A lot of amazing possibilities are opened in front of you. Make language learning a habit and it will be more interesting and productive process than just studying within four walls.
