086: How to study during a busy period

<p>Isabelle asks: "I'm about to enter a very busy period of final exams. How can I keep up my Mandarin during this period?"</p>
<h2>In this episode:</h2>
<li>The good thing about having a finite period of "busyness"</li>
<li>The less pressure the better - results in more learning</li>
<li>I suggest picking ONE thing, and doing only that during the whole busy period</li>
<li>This could be: have two speaking sessions a week, watch one episode of a TV drama every evening, learn 5 new Chinese characters every morning</li>
