How is it going, everyone?
I have been somewhat inactive here for quite a while, so I thought a short update might me appropriate.
At the end of last year I was able to get a very fine job that kept me especially busy during the last two month. (I love it). So as a consequence, I was not able to do as much language learning as I would have liked to, but I could squeeze some practice in between every now and then, so my bad conscience would hold its tongue.
The equilibrium of the “Big Three” has shifted slightly; I focus mainly on English at the moment, while doing (or trying to do) a good lot for Spanish every day. I also started taking lessons to practice speaking again and I'm very happy with how that is going. Japanese, sadly, sits on the bench and is only approached occasionally. (I'm sorry, Japanese.)
And - of course - there is another language that has crept its way into my brain and that is Italian. But Italian, just like Japanese, is sitting on the bench at the moment and waits to be called.
I know that it might be best to just drop all my languages except one. And it's not that I haven't tried. Call me crazy but I think that looking on the languages you learn as your children holds very true for me and it breaks my heart if one of them is being neglected – metaphorically, of course.
So I will try my best to figure out a life-language-work-balance and will hopefully be back soon with a bunch of new posts.
Enjoy spring! <3

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!
