Ok, so you'll set goals to certain days, then?

Gotcha.

I was thinking by daily you meant every day, which is the usual translation of daily.

I meant every day, but I am going to have specific goals for every day, rather than general weekly ones.

A couple of small corrections, if that's ok:

1) Assignments is with 2 S's

2) It sounds better to say "thanks for the corrections" because you're referring to a specific set of corrections.

Also, I'm not sure if "schedule for next weeks" works. In my experience, a time qualifier is added between "next" and "weeks", else we just say "next week" in the singular. I did a quick Google search for "next weeks" and the results either showed "next week's", or "next few/two/etc. weeks". Though perhaps "next weeks" works in other English dialects?

I interpreted it as "goals for the next few weeks". You're right to say the "goals for next weeks" doesn't work without some intervening words in there.

Yeah I interpreted it as the same.

My plan failed again. :cry:
I am somewhat overwhelmed with my studies at uni. I cannot dedicate a lot of time to languages.

My new plan:
(id) 2-3 pages from the textbook every day.
(et) 3-4 pages of translation every week.
(es) 6 pages of reading every week.
(en) 10 pages of reading and 2 pages of writing every day.

I think this should be manageble?

I find that it helps me more to not think of a plan I made and couldn't stick to as having failed. Rather, I say to myself that I couldn't stick to it because it was too much and needed to be adjusted. Like you wrote, you're overwhelmed by your uni studies, which is something you didn't expect would happen.

:shock: I don't think I could possibly do this even if I didn't have work. But you seem to be able to get more accomplished in a day than I can. :P

You're right. I'm dropping everything except Indonesian.

It's up to you, of course, but in case it helps, what I usually do is just smaller amounts of each language.
