I waste a lot of time on the internet and talking to my English-speaking dorm mates.

It's really unfortunate because my schedule is quite open for anything I want. Otherwise I would like to study pretty much all day.

I have mine split all over the day, I think having sessions through the day really helps.

I spend half an hour on the bus in the morning, so I do my daily Pimsleur lesson at around 8:00. I then spend my day at university. My current semester is constant lectures and tutorials from 9:00 until 4:00. No breaks, I have to stuff in lunch in the odd 5 mins between lectures, it's a complete drag. It's not language related, by the way. Then I go over the same lesson again as I head home on the bus, at 4:00, by which time I'm usually half asleep, so it's nice to just run over everything. Then, on some days I work until 7, on others I'm doing other stuff, so I do the rest late at night. I'm now learning the kana, at around 10:00, and watch a show in my language for half an hour. Then at 11:00, I'm completely knocked out.

On weekends and Wednesdays, I usually just fit it in with whatever I'm doing. I always make sure to go over Pimsleur twice, get some exposure to native language, and get some writing practice. Of course, I miss the odd day.

Generally, I work 9-4/5 on weekdays on my PhD. In the evenings I try and split my time between visiting the gym, socialising with flatmates and language learning. Although I admire those of you that can get up at 6am and learn languages, I could not do such a thing. I'm rubbish in the morning so my most productive time is in the evenings. Most evenings I do get that odd hour to do Rosetta Stone and my online flashcards/audio stuff. It is kinda hard to fit it in though, especially if you have a busy social calender one week say or a huge amount of work to do.
Weekends are generally spent catching up on sleep I miss out on during the week! :D

I start class at 9:00 or 9:30 every day and usually finish at 5:00 or 6:00. My
schedule contains many free blocks of 1 or 2 hours during which I usually try to
study. I tend to waste a lot of my time on the internet or playing on my phone.

I'm nocturnal, therefore it's difficult concentrating in the morning. I have to get up in the morning, and go to the lesson at 10h or sometimes 11h or 11h45. usually, the last one finish at 16h30, but we eat lunch, of course, before.

My current language learning schedule is memorizing at least one ayat of the Holy Koran per day. I do it during break time at my workplace using a pdf which contains word per word translation so that I can learn some new vocabs and get some hints of Arabic sentence structure little by little. Then, everytime I reach 1 ruku, I learn some Kanjis with the amount equals to the amount of ayats divided by three rounded down.
