I just got to thinking about this for some reason, but what time of day (or night) do you find is the best for studying EO?
When I first started to learn, I would try and study in the morning before I would head to work - but I found that didn't work very well, but now I study at night, and that seems to be working better. So I was curious about what other people found worked best for them.

This doesn't apply to studying Esperanto, but when I was learning Italian, I would study it for about a half hour every night before bed. I would do one lesson in my book, or study one vocabulary list, or whatever, but I would do at least *something* every day.

I study all day, whenever i'm not doing anything. I think of sentences in Esperanto which are relevant to the current situation as practice. I also try to learn 1 new word daily.

I tend to study a bit when I get home from work. Usually "studying" just involves visiting a number of sites such as startu.net, e-planedo, and so on, and reading what's new. I also have an eo blog which I try to update at least every other day with even just a paragraph or two.

Studying in the morning only works for me on weekends.

I think the trick is to expose yourself to Esperanto every single day, even if just for a little while.

I would agree with that. It would help keep your learning going. Maybe I need to start doing more of that as well...

I subscribe to a couple of Magazines such as Monato and the esperanto-usa magazine, as well reading startu.net and various blogs.

Usually whenever I can get the time to. That means after school, Friday nights, whatever and whenever.

I usually also use the time before going to bed to study a language. This involves reading, learning some grammar/words and, if possible, as the last thing just before sleeping, hearing a text in that language on my iPod.

Obviously, the thing that you do just before sleeping is stored in your memory, best. Physiologically, it seems that during the sleeping phase the brain has enough time to re-process the things that happened during the day. Among these things, the things you did last, are handled preferentiallly.

That is also the reason, why you do not store memories, that happened just before an accident where your head/brain was heart (retrograde amnesia). Actually, the protein that is responsable for deciding what's stored permanently and what's trashed, was identified in rodents just several months ago and I remember reading a very interesting article about it in Nature.

Anyway, also doing little training sessions during the day (e.g. when sitting in a train or waiting for a meeting oder drinking coffee ...) might help.

I like the info on how the brain processes memories while you sleep. It makes sense.

Thanks to everyone for their response. As a result I taken to reading some EO publications when I get a chance, and I will take my EO dictionary and Teach Yourself Esperanto book with me when I go someplace (work, trips, etc.) to give me that extra boost in learning.
