As every month – except for January, my apologies to everyone- here you are a new edition of the Motivational Calendar.
What are your goals for this month? After a 2 months break with Swedish I am ready to resume my studies of the language. As you all know, I believe learning a language should be fun, so I want to do something that is energizing and instructive and the same time. I love Swedish documentaries and TV-series so I have decided to watch the third season of “Familjer på äventyr” a Swedish reality show that follows the lives of adventurous Swedish families around the globe. I aim to watch at least 30 minutes every day. But it is not just passive learning, I will have a notebook with me in which I will write all the sentences I almost understood except for a word or two. This way I will be able to improve my vocabulary and concentrate on the things I can do or almost can. Remember: don’t set very difficult goals, just difficult enough to keep you going.
My second goal is to find a Swedish-Spanish language partner so we can exchange languages. I tried that 3 months ago without much success but here I go again! This method will help me to use the vocabulary I am learning on my own watching Swedish TV. So, here is how you can help: if you yourself are Swedish or you know anyone that speaks Swedish and it’s up for an exchange please leave me a comment!
And now enjoy your calendar here
