I love "Escaping the Eternal A1" and I'm totally in. I'm keeping 30 minutes a day as my minimum, but I'm going to do 60 every day--or more--except for Tuesdays and Thursdays, my heaviest work days.
I just got an email from Kirsten Cable (I'm doing her German Uncovered course) and she was talking about when you make your weekly to-do list. Hmm.... I have general goals but I haven't ever done an exact weekly to-do list. I wonder if this is what other people regularly do? I'm going to try this for the 6 week challenge.
My deadline right now is for the end of December 2021. That's a solid 14 months. Can we get to B1 by then?
Ok, 30 min a minimum is reasonable for start. If you keep putting in much more, I'll either work harder too, or we'll have a solid experiment on how much time affects results! The name is good, let's start it.
The weekly goals idea is very good. A few learners around here do it in their logs, I've never succeeded. Which approach is closer to your heart? Minimum weekly goals and exceeding them, or ambitious ones and trying to check as many things as possible?
Yes, your deadline sounds good. We can do it!
