@Vlady I've never thought of texting as a viable language learning technique before. Interesting...
@Scarlett I think it's a shame that so many people think of German as a harsh sounding language, when I think it sounds really nice.
I mainly focus on listening and reading.
My favourite exercise to improve is to use some native material, for example, listen a song along the lyrics and learn new vocabulary or just expose myself to the langauge.
I believe what motivates me to keep learning German is just the songs, books, movies and series I like that are in German (same with French) and purely passion, I just love how it sounds.
I don't practice for a set amount of time, some days I don't even practice. English I practice anyway 'cause there's a lot of stuff in English about the things I'm studying but I didn't reach the level to learn about programming languages in German
