The first version of my system and routine for learning Spanish

In the previous post, I defined my Spanish learning goals and also commented that I will write a post about my progress every month. And these monthly posts will be divided into two parts, in the first, I will review the previous month’s goals, and in the second I will put the new study goals.
My idea is to use the following template:

Review of the previous month

It will be divided into three parts:

  1. Result of the previous month
    • Cada objetivo terá a forma como eu irei medi-lo, e aqui eu vou descrever quais delas eu conseguir alcançar
  2. What went well
    • About my routine
    • The material and resources
    • Amount of time dedicated
    • And so on…
  3. What I have to improve
    • Just like the previous one, also about my routine
    • The material and resources
    • Amount of time dedicated
    • And so on…

Goals for the next month

Here, I’m going to break it down into three parts, the first will be about my goals, and it will be the things I want to be able to do by the end of the month, and the second is how to structure my study routine during the week, and lastly, some extra challenges to help me consume more materials in Spanish.
For my goals, I will use the topics of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, ideas from the private tutor, and any topic I feel like going into further.
And for the weekly organization, I’m going to use teacher Victoria’s idea of having a matrix with the different aspects of the language, activities to practice each one of them, and how to divide this during the week.
All of that will be easier to understand in the following example:

Goals of the month

Being able to speak on the following topics:

  1. Greeting, introduction
  2. Talk about yourself
  3. Talk about family and friends
  4. Numbers (from zero to one thousand, and hours)
  5. Colors (black, white, yellow, blue, red, orange, pink, purple, gray, brown)
Weekly organization

Here I will have the list of language aspects, which activity I will use to practice it, and on which day of the week I will do it, as in the following example:

Bonus challenges

Well, as the name says, here I’m going to list some extra things that challenge me during the month, some examples:

  • Attend a meetup in Spanish
  • Do a certain amount of lessons in the app
  • Read a book in Spanish
  • Talk with a native about a particular topic

The next post will be my goal for December.
