Study schedules

Posted by greggygate September 16, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi, My name is Greg, and I'm a procrastinator.


It feels so good to get that off my chest.

My problem is this: I need help staying on schedule.  Chinesepod is chock full o' great resources, but if I don't have a set plan or study schedule, my procrastination becomes an issue and I get lazy and stop studying.  I need a good daily/weekly system to stay on the ball.  What does everyone suggest?  I'm working on the intermediate lessons, they seem to be about my speed, although I like the upper intermediate lessons too.  how many lessons do you do a week?  What do you do each day?  How do you judge your progress?  How do you allot time to each of the resources available in Chinesepod?  What other resources or opportunities for practice do you bring into your study schedule? Do you work full-time? If so, what do you do to fit Chinese into your day?


I see this as an opportunity for me to figure out what everyone else does, so I can put together a schedule for myself, BUT it is also an opportunity to share best practices with each other.  So what do you do that works for you, study-schedule wise?
