Welcome!

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 heading into July with a Quest all about the power of play and how to approach your language with childlike learning.


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!

We’d absolutely love for you to be a part of our community. You can join us by adding a link to your own goal post in the comments below.

So let’s get started, sharing our goals and motivating one another to #clearthelist!

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 my Mandarin vocabulary I’ve noticed since Little Linguist’s arrival. // We are still continuing our weekly phrase focus and now have some workbooks for the summer.

Maintain my vocabulary learning streak + maintain my Duolingo learning streak. // Yes, I’m still keeping this up daily with 700+ day streaks.

Keep working through my YouTube Queue.  // I’m maintaining it, though not reducing it anymore.

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. As I mentioned above, now that it’s summer, I have some plans to start to incorporate this more and I’m excited to see how it works out. Right now, the kids are learning to write their first Chinese characters.

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, Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Keep working through my YouTube Queue.  // I’d like to keep reducing this down. Like last month, I don’t have a specific number in mind for this month, but I don’t want it to creep back over 2,000.

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.
