Build Language Learning Into Your Routine

Prepare yourself for success to learn a language

If you want to become fluent in a foreign language, you need a daily routine. It’s not a choice, it’s a fact. Without knowing when your next language lesson will be, most people end up making no progress without a deadline. But setting up a daily routine is much easier than you may think, and it’s crucial to not only nail down the ‘when’, but also the ‘what’ you’re going to do. So, to help you, here are some easy steps to follow in order to create the best study plan for learning any language.

Setting aside time for a foreign language study

Time is key when it comes to learning a language; lots and lots of time. While it does take a lot of cumulative time, that doesn’t mean sitting and studying for hours on end! With a good language learning schedule, you can efficiently achieve your language learning goals.

Install an app for your morning routine

There are thousands of apps to improve your skills and vocabulary. These range from dictionary applications to games that teach new words, to specific applications for language learning. Some of them send out daily notifications at specific times to remind you to read.

But check out the app store on your device and see if one or more of them work for you. Then consider building these into your morning routine: Learn Italian while having your morning coffee or French while enjoying a croissant.

Take every opportunity you can to speak in your target language

You are only gaining a portion of the total language learning experience regardless of how much you read in your target language. You are learning how to connect the written words to the correct translations in your head but you are not learning how to pronounce them. Use all kinds of different resources to build in speaking. Read an article aloud, repeat after a presenter in a YouTube video, try to sing along with a song, just talk to yourself in your target language! Each and every day presents many opportunities to practice speaking a language.

Be calm and be flexible

Not every day will be perfect. There are times when you may be distracted from your planned language learning sessions. You may accidentally sleep in, a pipe in the kitchen may burst, or a friend may show up from outside the city and want to hang out; life can throw a lot of curveballs your way. Be prepared to adjust. In these moments, tackle your obstacles first and know that tomorrow is a new day and another chance for your success.

Make language learning a priority

If you want to learn another language, put it on the top of your priority list. If you make something a priority, you work it into your schedule and find time to get it done. This is one of the best ways to ensure that you keep time to yourself without getting caught up in other tasks. You may be busy (like most of us!) but you actually do have time for language learning. It is up to you to consider it valuable and make time for it without pushing it off for later.


The best language learning study plan is made based on what works best for you. Often, this means creating a routine that helps you incorporate language learning into your everyday life. Daily exposure and practice will lead you to great success and before you know it, you will be well on your way to mastering the language. But before you start, you need to do some prep work. Take some time, implement these strategies, and create a language learning study plan that’s compatible with your lifestyle.
