The Guide to Knowing Your Language Learning Style

This episode is about habits and how we build and create them. Listen to find out what our tendencies are and how we use them to make our language routines.

  • What motivates us to do things?

  • What motivates us to keep going?

  • Do you set yourself goals and always meet them?

  • Or do you hate goals?

  • Are you likely to spend weeks just looking for the perfect textbook before you start?

  • Or are goals only meaningful when others set them for you?

  • Or do you only set them when they make sense?
