A Simple Plan

The solutions to some of the biggest problems almost always involve a simplified approach. It is the same with languages.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. - Benjamin Franklin.

If you don't  begin to develop a structured, organised and disciplined approach then you won't excel in languages. 'Attacking' language learning without a plan is akin to sending a randomly selected team without a formation out to meet your opponent.
