5 Ways To Make Time for Language Learning

It’s the oldest excuse in the book: “I haven’t got enough time to learn a language.”

For many of us, myself included, finding time for languages can sometimes feel like an impossibility. Between work, school, family life, errands, social time and everything else have to get done in a day it’s a wonder when we can even finish that much, right?

It doesn’t have to be. I’ve come to the conclusion that the “I have no time” excuse is really nothing more than a poor cover for “I have no motivation“.

Nobody has time. We’re all busy, all the time, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make ourselves just a little bit of room each day for language study. It doesn’t have to be a lot – even 20 minutes a day is better than nothing.

I’ve made this infographic for you in an attempt to help illustrate a few ways in which you can create the time you need to devote a little bit more of your day to languages.


It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, there’s almost always a way to make time for language learning. So before you start complaining about not having enough time, step back and evaluate your situation.

Do you really lack the time? Or are you just using it as a placeholder for the truth: a lack of motivation.

What are some other ways you like to use to make time for your language projects?
