These are the plans developed by Rob Julien of Korean Digital Academy for developing good study habits.

Print out and read the “reading” before you view the video.  Look for new vocabulary words and grammar structures.  Be curious.  Read the sentences out loud.  Write the sentences.  Then get the answers from watching the video.  Be actively engaged in learning, and it will be easier to understand and remember.

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3

I was cocky and sure I didn’t need to do this, just glanced at the reading page and hurriedly went to the videos to save time, but it didn’t save time.  It made things a lot harder.  It was truly transformational when I trusted Rob and tried his way for a week.

The plan has you learning new material for 2 days, then practicing that material for the rest of the week.

Don’t underestimate the power of repeating the same concept until it becomes easy and quick.  Don’t stop when you think you understand how to conjugate “ah-verbs”.  Practice using those “ah-verbs” until you can easily do it in conversation.  This was my “ah-ha” moment in learning Korean.  A few days of reviewing flashcards made me noticeably faster until I was bored because it was so easy.
