Learning anything new, including a new language, is about understanding the concepts and creating a habit of speaking the language. To most effectively do this, you’ll want to train yourself to study on a regular basis.

Ideally, you’ll set aside at least 20 minutes each day. If you want to become fluent quickly, you’ll need to set more time aside. Many people don’t have big blocks of time that are free. If that’s the case for you, you could even break up your time into several portions throughout the day.
