things to do in your target language for studying

  • write down sentences/words & make sure you say them out loud
  • make flashcards (digital flashcards to be more sustainable!)
  • start a journal to write down new vocabulary that you learn
  • watch a show and repeat what you hear out loud
  • listen to music and translate parts of the lyrics
  • narrate your actions out loud
  • find a friend to practice speaking or texting with
  • try to incorporate new vocabulary as much as you can in your sentences
  • write journal entries everyday (this especially helps if you’re struggling with immersing yourself)
  • while watching shows, actively write down new words that you find interesting
  • learn vocab of objects, places, emotions, people, etc. around you (aka vocab that you will use the most often in daily life)
  • learn synonyms of words that you already know
  • create a small, achievable goal to complete everyday (ex. learn one new word, write 3-5 sentences, read lyrics or a small paragraph out loud)
  • change one of your app’s language settings; don’t change your whole phone’s language, it’ll stress you out even more (coming from experience). baby steps!
  • follow influencers on social media that are native speakers (captions in their posts are good for learning new vocab)
  • be confident! it’s okay to struggle, you’re still learning :)

Small update: I just learned that shifting realities is a thing and it’s really interesting. I also think the dark academia aesthetic is starting to grow on me, it’s probably because I started reading Harry Potter again and decided to watch the first movie last night!

I’m starting my French lessons for this year people! This grammar book is amazing, but I can’t stand the color brown so it’s killing me a little every time I open it 😂😂

I decided to study on the couch for a change today since I only needed one book at a time. To be honest I skipped a few pages and started the next chapter, but I’ll go back tomorrow and do the rest. I also have a production orale to prepare and that will come really close to murdering me, but I hope it won’t 😂😂

I’m Melina and this is my studyblr! It will also vaguely be a langblr, since what I will be studying is languages.

I’m from Greece and I’m currently studying translation to and from Greek, English and French. My level in French is not so good (I have a B2 degree and will take the exam for C1 this December probably, but I’m not so comfortable with French in general), so I decided to share my journey with you guys, hoping this will motivate me more. I will also be posting a lot of Japanese as well, since I’ve been studying it for a year and I really enjoy it! Plus, mostly during the exam period, I will be posting stuff from uni as well!

What I will be posting:

  • French notes
  • Japanese notes
  • Uni stuff about translation
  • Interesting facts I learn during uni projects
  • Mini writing challenges in French and Japanese
  • Coffee (this is the most important one tbh)


  • Anime
  • Kpop
  • Exercising
  • Books
  • Random science stuff
  • Cats

I hope to be inspired by the Studyblr community and someday even be an inspiration for someone as well. I’m looking forward to studying with you guys!

Feel free to message me anytime!

Today I feel super tired and exhausted physically I’m beating myself up so much for not being productive because I had a lazy weekend. I’m on my journey of relearning to be disciplined and consistent. I’ve been doing so well this past week and took a breather over the weekend due to being ill because of my period. Right now I’ll take a short nap, wake up and study.
