I’m on week 9 and though I have been doing them for such a short time, I can’t enjoy the listening exercise anymore! For a few weeks I have been listening to the first one daily, and now I have to listen to it TWICE daily and though I am very sure it’s an important process… I can’t get myself to press the start button! Listening to the same conversation three times twice a day, so in total 6 times… I just feel like I have memorized the track already and am not learning anymore… I literally know the exact time when Iestyn (I think?) says “oh daro!” (though I never checked the spelling… it sounds like this to me )
And as a confession… I haven’t done them twice most of the time. I just can’t. My attention span is shorter than a goldfish’s and my willpower is nonexistent.
And I have a very similar situation with the speaking exercise as well, though I think this is 100% my fault. I just feel like my sentences are not different enough from the day before or the other day before or… I mean… I started using “when” or “you said” and other words that I learned last week but my sentences are still incredibly boring and I just can’t continue when I start, becoming extremely restless and irritable and fed up with myself for not thinking of better ones after a few sentences.
So I wanted to ask if anyone has some tricks to spice things up because I think neither of these are becoming habits for me. I LOVE the challenges and the small videos and all that but these! I really have to find a way to solve this because I’m sabotaging myself and I know I won’t be able to learn Welsh if I go on like this.
PS. Sorry for any typos and incoherent rambling in advance, I’m a bit tired
Edit: Even if I don’t do the listening exercises, I really do love hearing Welsh! Nearly half of the songs I’ve been listening to the past few months are Welsh nationalistic rock or folk. I sometimes try to watch cartoons though I don’t understand much.
