I don’t think studying a language while driving is a good idea. I am learning Russian, but I don’t have so much time to study every day. So, I decided to use my driving time to study. I have started listening to the CDs from my textbook while I am driving.
Usually, I listen to English music CDs or Japanese radio while I am driving. I understand both languages, so it doesn’t cause any problems.
However…when I listen to my Russian CDs, I start thinking things like:
“What did she just say?”
“Is that how you pronounce XXX? I’ve been pronouncing it wrong.”
“I didn’t catch that. I must listen to it again.”
“Ah! That conversation was the one on page 10 of my texbook!”
“Oh! That sounds different from what I expected!”
And so on….
This is not good. It takes my attention away from the road. I think I will stop studying while driving, for everyone’s safety!
