  • WAYS TO DEVELOP GOOD LANGUAGE LEARNING HABITS 7 Image © Lidyanne Aquino
  • Developing habits is a great way of getting stuff done. But where do you start? Image © See-ming Lee
  • 1 FORM GOALS Image © laffy4k
  • Set SMART goals. Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-bound Image © Nolan Williamson
  • I will study basic greetings and vocabulary every morning for 30 minutes, until I can have an everyday conversation with native speakers. Image © gt8073a
  • 2 ASSIGN A PLACE FOR STUDY Image © J.B. Hill
  • Assign a specific room as your study room. It can help you compartmentalize the language mentally.
  • Choose anywhere that allows you to focus with no major distractions. Image © wickerfurniture
  • 3 PACE YOURSELF Image © Martin Pettitt
  • Start slow. Study no more than 30 minutes per day to avoid burning out. Image © wwarby
  • Only when 30 minutes passes easily should you try studying for longer periods. Image © Jonh-Morgan
  • 4 MAKE USE OF DEAD TIME
  • Take advantage of your dead time. Listen to podcasts in your car, read a book on the train, mentally label objects in your office while a file loads. Do it every single day. Image © All Kinds of New
  • Even if you don’t feel like actively studying, if you’re in the habit of listening to the language during your dead time, you’ll passively absorb it. Image © Teeejayy
  • 5 TAKE A 30 DAY CHALLENGE
  • Commit to building a small positive habit when learning a language. Do it every day for 30 days. Image © Katy Warner
  • Image © jakeandlindsay At the end of your 30 day challenge, either stick with the habit or choose another one, like reading the news only in your target language every day.
  • 6 IMPROVE YOUR SELF-CONTROL
  • Remind yourself of the negative consequences that a loss in self-control might incur.
  • Write down a list so you have a physical reminder that you can refer to every time you slip up, give up, or procrastinate. Image © dbbent
  • 7 KNOW YOURSELF Image © Keoni Cabral
  • We all learn differently. Get to know your learning style. Image © jordan23queen
  • Get in the habit of trying new styles. You wouldn’t want to build a routine around something that’s not meant for you, right? Image © Liz
  • Practice your new habits alongside Sam, the language lover behind these tips and the blog lingholic. Facebook: www.facebook.com/lingh0lic Twitter: www.twitter.com/lingholic
