My general approach - to do something in my languages as often and regularly as possible. Some days are chaotic (=nothing done, even reading in my native language) and some days are better (~15 minutes or more per language). The activities I keep track of are along the Arguelles lines:
- narrative (which I split into listening and reading separately)
- analysis (any kind of work which doesn't fit the other categories, but typically grammar exercises, regular "lessons" etc.)
Current situation (Wanderlust alert):
- Daily sessions in Duolingo for Irish, German and Spanish. I'm mostly reviewing to get back to where I was before I dropped out a long time ago (~level 11/12).
- Michel Thomas Spanish (10 CDs) - I went through this many years ago, and started to review it just before my trip to Berlin. I did the first 5 CDs and has finished one more after the Gathering.
- Daily lesson of Say something in Welsh. One of the talks at the Polyglot Gathering inspired me to have a look at the language (Again! Last time was around -94/-95...). Lesson 5 done today.
- FSI Cantonese - lesson and/or Anki work (including entering cards manually, with characters and all that). Lesson 8 done (before the Gathering, and before I started the SRS challenge, so I thought it was best to create cards based on what I have learned so far).
- L-R in Finnish - I got halfway through "Puhdistus" (by Sofi Oksanen) in just a few days before I went to Berlin. Will get back to it soon, maybe this weekend.
- Occasional lessons from Speak Italian magically (which I got for free in Berlin). Lesson 2.
- I mostly read in Swedish and English, and almost every day. I also spend some time with a fantasy book in German, children's books in Romanian,
and finally a children's book in Chinese (don't tell anyone, my understanding of the content is like n+100).
- Daily Anki sessions for Esperanto, Cornish, Finnish, Irish, Mandarin, Romanian, Cantonese and Toki Pona.
Did I scare you away?
