Dividing Time Between Reading, Writing, and Speaking When Learning a New Language


Day 163 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

From time to time I look at where my Italian learning time is going. One language learning expert I heard on youtube placed great emphasis on reading, especially at the beginning stage. I have been spending a majority of tilme on reading and writing. On a video-cast, I saw recently the suggestion was to place more time on listening and speaking. So I'm going to shift more of the limited time I have to listen more to native speakers online, and to practicing monologues since I learning Italian on my own. Books, I have plenty of books. I'll see where the shift of time leads me. (Next is a practice script in Italian -- grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Mentre leggo sull'apprendimento di una nuova lingua, trovo diversi suggerimenti su dove iniziare.
    As I read about learning a new language I find different suggestions about where to start.
  • Alcuni suggerimenti sottolineano l'ascolto, altri la lettura, altri ancora parlano.
    Some suggestions emphasis listening, others reading, yet others speaking.
  • Per me leggere un nuovo linguaggio sembra un modo più semplice per iniziare.
    For me reading a new language seems easier.
  • La sfida per me è il parlare.
    The challenge for me is the speaking.
  • Sposterò più tempo per ascoltare e parlare.
    I will shift more time to listening and to speaking.
Alla prossima!
