It was at high school, perhaps, that I learned how to shirk. I avoided French and Latin. I worked out how to do the least in my other subjects whilst still ‘achieving’.
And so I drink coffee, snack, play chess, roam about, watch Youtube, get stuck into kanji, and even read all to excess. These have become my diversionary activities.
I’ll institute high school periods again. I’ll train myself to work in 1-hour bursts. I’ll learn how to love them.
Honestly, an hour spent with a European language using massive comprehensible input would almost be enough to nail it. Okay!
