173: How many hours a week do you study?

<p>Selman asks: "How many hours a week do you study?"</p> <h2>Episode Summary:</h2> <ul> <li>Here's what I aim for: Focused study every weekday morning (1 hour), sporadic flashcards + listening during the day (0-60 mins), at least 3 speaking sessions a week (30-60 minutes)</li> <li>A rough total is around 5 hours study + 3 hours speaking</li> <li>Add on top of that watching TV, reading books, going out etc</li> <li>However, I often go for days without studying, and don't often stick to this schedule, but it tends to come back to this</li> <li>Remember that the success you have depends much more on the range of activities you do - speaking, reading etc. Are those considered studying?</li> <li>With my stronger languages like Spanish, Japanese etc, I don't study them any more, I just use them</li> </ul> <h2>Resources Mentioned In Today's Episode:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://www.iwillteachyoualanguage.com/core-study-time-language-routine/"> Core Study Time In Your Language Routine</a> - a popular blog post on the topic of study and routine</li> </ul> <h2>Start speaking today:</h2> <p>I’d like to thank <a href= "http://iwillteachyoualanguage.com/italkishownotes" target= "_blank">iTalki</a> for supporting the show.
