How to romanticize language learning
Use your favorite colors to highlight what you don't know
Have a nice notebook where you keep track of grammar or/and vocabulary
Try making a snack specific to a country where your target language is spoken
Have sticky notes with texts you wrote in order to improve and motivate yourself
Annotate books if that's your thing
Look up for new songs and then learn to sing then by looking up the lyrics (+translate the new words)
Remember how you'll improve over time if you keep learning
Keep a journal in your target language. Write in another color the words you had to look up. Notice how over time there are less and less different colored words.
Decorate your notes with sticky notes and doodles
Chat with your pets or with yourself in your target language (or just tell to mister cat how you'll improve your French, everything works)
Start a book or a comic and choose a reward for when you finish it
Pretend you're a foreigner who knows only your target language, try using that language only for some time
Talk about each product from your grocery list/chart
Learn idioms and imagine in which circumstances you could use them
Change the settings of your phone for a day/week to your TL and try to read/look up things only in that language
Keep a journal or agenda where you plan, analyze and organize your life but use only your target language.
Have a notebook/digital notepad where you write about your day and add a picture.
Make a PowerPoint presentation with what you learned today. Think of it as the most important project you have to make or the thing that could teach someone else your TL. (Your favorite fictional characters for example)
Weekly write letters to future you about your progress. (In your native or target language) Open those letters when you're more advanced. Decorate them with drawings or stickers.
These ideas might seem more appropriate for higher levels BUT if you're a beginner and start trying to do these things, you'll improve a lot so don't discourage yourself just because you think you don't know enough yet.
