P1. Mindset

* It’s about the journey, not the destination
* What is the most effective system? The one that you will actually do, this applies to dieting, fitness training, language training, whatever…

P4. Grammar

* Grammar books, ideally concise and with lots of sample sentences

** Please allow me to interrupt you for less than one minute
*** “I’m trying an experiment for personal development/to overcome my shyness, I’m trying to see what percentage of people in Paris I can strike up a conversation, (point) I’m keeping tracking here, so, are you willing to chit chat for a couple of minutes
*** “I’ve come across this phrase/vocab, and my vocabulary application is crashing and it’s annoying me, can you explain the meaning of this to me if it doesn’t bother you too much

P6. Comprehensible input
