EN: About a little thing called 750 Words

EN: I've long been inspired by an idea I first learned about in The Artist's Way called morning pages. Morning pages are three pages of writing done every day, typically encouraged to be in "long hand", typically done in the morning, that can be about anything and everything that comes into your head. It's about getting it all out of your head, and is not supposed to be edited or censored in any way. The idea is that if you can get in the habit of writing three pages a day, that it will help clear your mind and get the ideas flowing for the rest of the day. Unlike many of the other exercises in that book, I found that this one actually worked and was really really useful.

750 Words is the online, future-ified, fun-ified translation of this exercise.


Christian Reuter's insight:

EN: You don't need to have a teacher to start practicing writing in any foreign language you want to learn.

Don't worry, you might write less than 750 words a day ;-)

Even 100 words would be fine. 

Just start and take the habit.

Weekly and Daily Planning

Perhaps one of the most important factors in your success in learning another language well is the commitment to interact with your target language on a regular basis.

A hit and miss approach of learning a day or two a week as the mood catches you is a sure way to find yourself on the road to discouragement, sloth like progress and eventually, to giving up the dream.

By planning to interact with the language every day, you will plan on success.  With today’s post I want to give you some specific actions to take that will allow you to do just that.

Problem One: What to Learn?

An initial problem that most everyday language learners face is in answering the immediate question, “What do I want and need to learn?”

We know we want to learn the language, but what specifically does that mean for this next week?  For today?
