What I Learned Most From Anthony
What I got most out of this interviews is his view on “play time vs study time” and his “profound” quote.
During my learn German in 90 days challenge, it was LOTS of study time. And after that 90 days of grinding, there is little motivation left to study German.
So make sure you balance play time and study time so you can associate language learning as fun so you will keep it going.
Its also very interesting when Anthony said these tips are common sense to him.
In my view, its common sense to him ONLY because he put in a lot of work and experiences in learning to speak a language that lead him to those common sense.
If you are a sprinter and you have a regular training routine, its likely that your training routine is different than Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world.
He trains the way he trains because its common sense to him and it came from years of experience of running and the best coaches in the world.
What did you learn from Anthony’s experiences, hacks and tricks that you will apply in your language learning routine?
