How many hours a day should I practice a foreign language?
Some people claim second language learners must study all day long.
Do you think that's truly necessary?
If you disagree, please let us know how many hours a day DO YOU think one should be studying.

Hi. Ihave been studying for a one and a half year. At the begining I've learned 2-3 hours a day,and I thought I'll speak fluently in one a year. Nowadays I've been studying 4-5 hours, but I have not achived upper intermediate level yet. The truth is that I'm 43 years old and for me is more dfficult learning foreign languages. I know young people who learn just an hour a day,and they speak more better then me. Sorry I think I could not help you:)

i think even 15 mins or more a day is good; as long as you review everything you learnt,  learn a few words and maybe learn some grammar points.

You don't have to help me.

This discussion is wide open to everyone who likes to share their opinion.

Thank you

Ideally I think one hour a day. It depends on your level of language. If you are already at an intermediate level you can variate the inputs, watch videos, do some reading and some writing. 

I have to switch codes now, I have a lesson in half an hour.
