Before you start learning any language, it’s generally a great idea to sit down and think a bit about what it is you’re trying to achieve.

There is no point in focusing on advanced grammar if you only want to be polite and speak a few sentences in the local language on your holiday. Same logic applies the other way around as well – you can’t simply memorise all the sentences in a language, so if your goal is fluency, you will need to deal with grammar sooner or later.

Whether you’re learning Spanish for your vacation in Barcelona or you’re trying to pass your mandatory French for Beginners class with flying colours, everyone has different goals in mind when signing up for language lessons. And figuring out what your goals are will help you not lose focus on the important. From choosing what language to study to what techniques to use, your language learning goals should shape everything about your effort.

Joan from TakeLessons has created this great infographic to help you narrow your focus on why you want to learn your target language and what steps to take to achieve your goals.
