I wrote on my previous post that reading novels can be great for learning new lexis and a foreign or second language in general. And it’s okay. But if you think that that got some rather complex nature – you might have to be after so many things while reading – I would tell you you could just read the novel and enjoy it. Just that, read and enjoy: that’s quite better than just doing nothing.
And please remember: learning your own learning strategies is the best way to learn and acquire a second or foreign language: feel at home when learning that tongue and apply the ways that best suit your learning style! / Photo from: High-Bouncing-Ball
