Hello whoever is reading this, hope you're having a good day :)

This article is about ways to learn a new language by yourself + sources that can help you in the process. It is separated by language so you can find the content for the exact one(s) you're learning.

How to do it?

When you're learning by yourself its important to create an weekly schedule to organise your studying because otherwise its very easy to get sidetracked and lose motivation. What I do is that Ive chosen the days Iยดm going to focus on studying and separated the activities I want to do in each day. So if I study Monday, Wednesday and Friday I separate the topics throughout this 3 days, being this topics vocabulary/grammar, speaking training and listening/translating activities. I usually let the weekends free to relax or play with flashcards to keep the memory fresh.

p.s: I put on this articles only languages that I study or that I have friends that study so that the content can be reliable and good, not just a google research :)
