To remember where I'm at right now (green) and where I want to be by the end of the year (yellow), I made some fancy bars to visualize my long-term goals and track my progress. I will probably add another colour later on to mark my progress along the way.
The grounds on which I base my starting proficiencies below are either official language proficiency tests I took online, or my online tutor's evaluation. Or both. In any case, the main goal for my "main languages" English, Spanish and Japanese will be vocabulary aquisition. After much back and forth between languages (first Swedish, then Norwegian) I finally decided on Mandarin. I have absolutely no plan what awaits me but I am eager to find out and can't wait to see what secrets this language holds and if it will stay a lifelong study companion.
I will be more concrete in how I plan to achieve my goals in my monthly language goals updates!

Hej! My name is Sandra, I am a language enthusiast from Germany and this is where I document my language learning journey.
I will share my study goals with you, talk about the ups and downs in language learning, try out cool challenges and show you study methods that I found particularly helpful. Making myself accountable here will hopefully give me some extra motivational boosts!
All main articles will eventually be translated into the four languages I am most comfortable with: German, English, Spanish and Japanese. Older posts can be found under "Archive" and are sorted in order of date.
You won't find a comment section under my posts, so if you feel like chatting a bit, or talking about language-y things feel free to message me on social media or write me an email!
Enjoy your stay and happy studying!
