I know that with my constant wanderlusting this will be difficult. But, finally, it's true that time is limited, and that it would be better to focuse and be more realistic .
[flag=]ru[/flag] I will continue with Russian. I am now beginning my third year. I don't go to classes anymore, so I'm learning it on my own, mainly by listening to audio materials on the internet.
My goal is to reach a real B2 level, above all in listening comprehension. For that I will need to increase my vocabulary. I suppose that some reading would help me with that. But when I try reading a book, I have to look up almost every word, and that is boring .
[flag=]de[/flag] I'm satisfyied with my level of German. When I'm listening to something in German, I understand almost everything. The problem is that I don't have any practice. So I make grammatical errors when I speak and write.
My goal is speaking to speak more fluently, and increase my vocabulary.
[flag=]ar[/flag] My main goal here is understanding more. I will try to understand audio materials. But I know it's going to be difficult because of the dialects mixing up constantly, and because of my lack of vocabulary (once more).
[flag=]hi[/flag] Last year was my first year of Hindi. So my level now is A1, I guess. But the problem is that because of Russian, I had no more time left to continue with Hindi.
My goal is to refresh my level, and maybe get to an A2 level

What have you been watching? Are there any vlogs in fusha?
Feel free to ask any questions or just make random posts in the Russian forum. I'm always there to read and reply.

I don't think that makes sense. You have to pay attention to audio to learn anything from it.

dEhiN wrote:Not to learn anything, but to I guess have a part of your brain passively paying attention to whatever language you're learning. That way you can focus actively on other things and not get burnout but at the same time not forget what you've learned. At least, that's what I imagine would work. Otherwise, if Antea stops doing Russian completely due to burnout and focuses on some other language, and if she does that long enough, she'll start to forget some of her Russian.
Antea wrote:[flag=]ru[/flag] Well, I'm not going to let down (my level in) Russian go down and I don't want to stop learning it. But I feel like I'm stuck in a plateau or wathever whatever, and I need to go further. So I've decided to take some classes, and see if it's possible to improve.
Anyway, I think that it's also a question of time. Personally, , I think that to reach a level of B2- - and maybe C1 level, I need an average of 5 years . Yes, I know it's a lot of time, but it takes took me almost two years to get the basics of the language, and to get used to them. Then I needed to improve my vocabulary. And finally to practise it. And it's true that with Russian I am beginning my third year, so .
[flag=]ar[/flag] Today, after such a long time, I had the opportunity to talk in Arabic. And I could do it, these are which is wonderful news for me. It's true that the other person was also speaking fussha, so it was not a very "natural" conversation. But it worked.
After all, the 5 or 6 years I studied fussha, still remain.

Antea wrote:[flag=]ar[/flag] I met an Arab teacher who said to me that in fact learning Fussha it's OK, because all Arabs could understand themselves using this language, and that dialects are not so difficult to learn, after it, because they only differ in some words
