The Power Of Tiny Habits


May 2023  |  Tips for building your language learning habit series

Tiny habits are small, easy actions that you can take consistently over time. They may seem insignificant on their own, but when done consistently, they can lead to big changes in your language skills.

Here are some tips for creating tiny habits:

Start small. Choose a habit that you can do in just a few minutes each day, like logging into LalTal and answering a single prompt.

Make it easy. Remove any barriers that might prevent you from doing your habit. If you’re using LalTal, you’ll want to add the Slack app to the home screen on your phone and enable notifications.

Do it consistently. Aim to do your habit every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. At LalTal we say, “Something is better than nothing,” and “Consistency is key.”

Track your progress. Keep track of how many days in a row you do your habit. This will help you see your progress and stay motivated. (We’ll send you a chart every Monday which will show your participation.)

By focusing on tiny habits, you can build momentum and make progress towards your language learning goals. Good luck!
