Language notebooks are great. Bullet journals are great. Combine the two together and you’ve got something that’s borderline fabulous.

Or at least has the potential to be. Journals for language learning are as good as the content inside. And since content is structured by layouts, you need some solid spreads to guide your language journey.

The spreads I’ve collected for this article are a mix of motivational, educational, and aesthetically pleasing. These journal layouts are good for language learners of all levels– beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

A language journal with these spreads will totally upgrade your whole self-study routine. Journals are engaging ways of holding yourself accountable and actively working towards your goals. They can be structured however you want them to be and they’re arguably the only language learning tool that is 100% personalized to the learner.

Technically, there is no wrong way to set up your language journal. There are inefficient ways to. Definitely ineffective ways to. But as long as they further your language acquisition process in an interactive manner, they’re doing their job.

I don’t want you to go into setting up your language journal blindly though. They can be so useful if you know the correct spreads to include. If you don’t have a bullet journal already, grab a hand-designed journal available on Amazon here.

Or check out my self-designed language journals with multilingual covers and strong boss babes depicted. Latin languages, European languages, African languages, Central American Languages, and more represented.

Available as both spiral notebooks and hardcover journals!

You can also grab some matching stickers to really make your language study sessions fun.
