Usually, I have trouble with time management with learning a new language from time to time. For example, I have the feeling I am spending too little or too much time, which makes a bad habit of constantly changing the time.

As shown by studies, not opinions, how much time do I need to spend learning a new language on average per day?

  • Not a scientific proof, but I found the bite-sized lessons of Duolingo very useful. One per day has helped me get up to speed with French. – Dawny33 Apr 7 '16 at 2:57

    If time is an issue, it's generally better to study for a small amount of time (10-15 minutes) every day consistently than to miss days and try to make up for it later. – intcreator Apr 7 '16 at 4:57

    This question is unanswerable. First clue: It contains the word "should." This is a "primarily-opinion based" question indicator. Can you make it more objective? Second, you don't tell us your goals. Some people "should" study their language 18 hours per day to achieve their goals. Others "should" study 5 minutes per week to achieve their goals. This question needs to be made much more specific, and much more objective. – Flimzy Apr 7 '16 at 5:46
  • @Flimzy Even if I agree that this question is primarily opinion based, I do not think that the word "Should" is a sure-fire sign of it. link – Bougret Apr 7 '16 at 7:27

    You don't say in the question to what (expertise) level you are trying to reach over what period of time. This detail needs to be added to the question or it is anyone's guess. – user3169 Apr 14 '16 at 5:23
