You will find out how to fit your language learning in around your holiday celebrations with some tips and tricks.
Indonesia is a country which has numerous festivals that are held throughout the entire year. Most of the festivals are accompanied by special ceremonies and they are mostly related to the religions of the people of Indonesia. However there are also some national festivals celebrated by all of the people regardless of their religious beliefs.
Besides having many festivals, Indonesia also has very pleasant weather. In most of the cities in Indonesia the days are warm and shiny; it's perfect weather for people who want to travel around the country. Many people like to come to Indonesia during their long summer holidays. This means that tourists from the Northern Hemisphere come mainly in June and July and tourists from the Sounthern Hemisphere come mainly in December and January. During this period most of people around the world will get time away from work or university and they all intend to put this time off to good-but it's not always easy. To help, we've had a good think about a few ways to keep up with your language courses, as well as the celebrations.
1. Make a To-Do List and Stick to Them
When you're in holiday mode it's easy to lose track of the hours and days. To avoid this, try to plan your To-Do List beforehand. Mark certain days, or hours, as language learning hours and set reminders on your phone or in your diary so that you stick to them. By doing this you can easily space out your language learning and balance it with festive activities. If you do this you will be able to continue your language studies without being worried about missing out on your planned festive activities.
2. Set a Goal
What do you want to have achieved by the end of the holiday period? Try setting yourself a goal. It might be something practical like 'finish week 2 and 3 of my course', or it could be learning-focused like 'understand daily-words in Indonesian'. Write your goal out in large letters on a post-it note or piece of paper and stick it on your laptop or somewhere where you can see it, so each day you're reminded of what you're working towards.
3. Reward Yourself
If you're still struggling to keep going with your language learning, try making sure you have rewards for yourself when you achieve each goal. Little rewards can help keep you motivated if you're struggling to learn.
