Use Smartphone Alarms to Help You Learn Spanish
May 12, 2014: No one ever learns Spanish “this year,” but some people will learn some Spanish today! In other words, nothing ever gets done “sometime”; it only gets done in a time called “right now.”
So to learn Spanish, French, German or your favorite language this year, you will need to learn some of it today at a time called “right now,” and using your smartphone to set daily study alarms is a good idea.
I’ve decided that I currently want to study Spanish for three different 15-minute sessions per day. I want to study 15 minutes before 8:00 a.m., 15 minutes before noon, and 15 minutes before 5:00 p.m. So I set my smartphone alarm for 7:40 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 4:30 p.m.
So far this is working quite well. When the alarm goes off, I drop what I am doing, turn the phone off (because I don’t want any interruptions), and study Spanish for 15 minutes.
Give it a try and see if it helps you.
