Develop a Simple Practice Schedule to Study Greek
Comments Off on Develop a Simple Practice Schedule to Study Greek
When it comes to learning a language like Greek, you will make faster strides by developing a practice schedule and sticking with it. This doesn’t need to be overwhelming, the main idea is to be consistent in your efforts. If you only practice once in a while, you may not progress as fast as you would like. The good news is that you don’t actually need to spend a lot of time on it as long as you’re consistent. Here are some tips:
Develop Your Idea Schedule
Did you know that it is actually better to carve out five minutes a day to study than it is to spend longer chunks of time studying only once a week? After a full year of spending 5 minutes a day, you would have spent 1500 minutes or longer building your Greek skills. It really does add up! By carving out small chunks of time on a daily basis, this keeps Greek at the forefront of your mind and you are more likely to remember everything you’ve studied.
Find Ways to Build Greek Into Your Life
Making strides in the Greek language is about more than just studying vocabulary and memorizing grammatical concepts. You need to experience it as well. The good news is that listening to music, watching a movie, or reading a magazine all count towards your daily practice time. If you set aside five minutes, just page through a fun magazine or listen to some of your favorite Greek music and this counts towards your daily goal!
Know What to Practice
In an ideal world, you will mix up your practice time between formally studying the language and having fun. However, finding real ways to experience Greek is a lot more valuable than studying for endless hours and not applying what you learned. In an ideal world, you will divide your time between studying and experiencing the language. However, the main idea is that you stay consistent and give yourself regular exposure to the Greek language.
These strategies will certainly help you make faster strides with learning Greek. It is amazing how fast your progress will be even by spending a small amount of time each day.
