Finding the time is one of the hardest things about learning German, or any other language.
It should be one of the easiest tasks, but we tend to push it to the sidelines in favour of something a little more pressing.
The reality is that you need to practice (ideally every day) in order to retain
the information you’ve learned, German grammar, vocabulary, expressions...
Otherwise what will happen? You will still progress but let’s just say it’ll take you a whole lot longer to master the German language.
I can hear you all now, “Do you know how busy my schedule without learning German is?” and “Seriously? You do realize I have a life to live outside of the German course, right?” But fear not my fellow German learners, daily German language practice needn’t be a chore - and it certainly doesn’t have to take any time out of your day.
“What, there’s a way to make a day longer than 24 hours?” you ask.
Well, not exactly.
Instead, you can slip in practice around the big tasks that take up the bulk
of your day—you know, like eating, working, watching TV and shopping for
human essentials like food and clothes.
I’m going to take a shot in the dark and say that between these activities
there’s a bit of a lull, a bit of downtime where you might find yourself
twiddling your thumbs or scrolling through your Facebook feed.
