Clear the List: A Goal Setting Link Up for Language Learners | Hosted by Lindsay Does Languages and Eurolinguiste

Welcome!

We’re heading into August — Little Linguist’s birthday month — and there are lots of exciting things in store.

Here is my latest analysis of my language goals as a part of Clear the List, but also the latest Language Conqueror Quest!

We’re kicking off August with a Quest all about mnemonics and how to use this incredible memory technique to help you level up in your language(s).

Join the Quest

What is Language Conqueror? It’s a course I work on with a monthly Quest focused on passion-driven learning. You can learn more, get a feel for my teaching style, and download our free PDF here: Get the Free PDF

And if that’s not enough, you can also get a feel for my teaching style with Snack-Sized Language!

Snack-Sized Language is a free podcast where we teach you snack-sized language lessons. So far we have episodes teaching general language learning tips, Japanese, French, Mandarin, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and German. Not to mention, more languages are coming soon!

You can subscribe to the podcast on your preferred podcast platform.

And if you enjoy Snack-Sized language, we would absolutely love it if you left us a review!

Now, on to #clearthelist …

Wondering what #clearthelist is? Let me clear it up for you (see what I did there?). #CleartheList is a linkup where we share our monthly goals, and by we, I mean myself, and you!

Please feel free to tag your posts or photos with either #clearthelist on your favorite social media channels!

Last Month’s Highlights on Instagram

Last Month’s Goals

Continue filling the gaps in our use of Mandarin at home. // We’re still working on this with weekly new phrases and learning to write characters. We recently had a great chat with a guest on the Language Hacking Podcast and she shared the strategies she used to make mathematics a required part of her kids’ routines and the benefits it had and it inspired me to do the same with languages for mine.

Maintain my vocabulary learning streak. // I’ve been keeping this up and am nearing 800 days.

Keep working through my YouTube Queue.  // I’ve kept it below 2000 but haven’t gotten it any lower.

Keep reading Game of Thrones in Russian. // Nope.

Keep reading Eye of the World in Hungarian. // Same as above.

Read in French. // Same as above.

This Month’s Goals

Continue filling the gaps in our use of Mandarin at home. // As usual, I’d like to continue to incorporate this more and more until we’re an OPOL household.

Maintain my vocabulary learning streak. // This has been a great way to rebuild my language routine, so it’s staying on the list indefinitely! I share my stats over on Instagram in my stories nearly every day, so if you’re ever curious about where I’m at, you can check out my stories. I am learning Persian, Hungarian, Croatian, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Keep working through my YouTube Queue.  // I’d like to keep reducing this down. I want to try to get it 1,750.

Keep reading Game of Thrones in Russian. // I really want to get back into this.

Keep reading Eye of the World in Hungarian. // Same as above.

Read in French. // Same as above.
