Hi, I thought it would be interesting to make a post and learn about not-so-well-known learning techniques that can be applied to languages. What is your favorite? Or would you recommend different learning styles to different types of learners? What works best for you?

In my mind there is a difference between underrated and not well known. I think writing, especially by hand, is very underrated, and many people try to avoid it these days, to their detriment.

I do not write by hand even in my own language, not that on a foreign 

I can help with Russian and Ukrainian languages

Great techniques! And you're right Elf, there's a difference, my post wasn't very articulated, but I basically meant either little known or underrated ^^

Maybe the LOR labels are a little too big.

For me, it depends on your goal or purpose. What do you want to achieve and what is it for? Am pretty sure, that there is a purpose why you want to learn one specific language. I believe that all languages are essential, if you want to know a lot of things.
