  • How do you manage time for learning languages?
  • How can I learn fast without being in the place that speaks the language?
  • How do I become as fluent in speech as I am in writing?
  • Is it better to learn one language after the other or can we do two at the same time?
  • How do you practice speaking your different languages?
  • How do you start conversations in your target language when you can't remember anything?
  • How to get over the wall of "I've learned the basics but nothing else is sticking"?
  • How do you stay dedicated to language learning?
