I love studying languages. My plan this year was to study Chinese, French and Russian, but I have changed my mind. I think it is better for me to focus on one language at a time. So I decided to focus on Chinese and try to pass the HSK level 3 exam.
I think focussing on one language at at time works well for me. When I was studying Japanese, I focussed on Japanese, and didn’t study any other languages. It took me three years to get level 1 on the Japanese proficiency test. So maybe this method works for me.
Some people can study many languages at the same time. I would like to, but I don’t think I can. So, I will focus on Chinese until I can pass level 4 on the HSK exam, and then I will start to study French. I might take a French test to keep me motivated. Once I have reached a high level in French, I will start to study Russian.
I wonder how long this will take? I guess it depends on how much time I can study every day. I’ll try to do at least an hour. My goal is to speak 5 languages fluently.
How many languages are you studying? Do you study them all at the same time? Or do you study them one at a time?
