I was pleased with my progress today. I did a lot. I did affirmatives and negatives, using ne….jamai, ne….pas encore, ne….plus, ne…rien, and ne….personne. I made some mistakes in the exercises and will need to review it again, but it wasn’t so bad.
Next, I did copied out five pages from my test vocabulary dictionary, and then did some shadowing. I did the first six passages from Easy French Reader. The fifth and sixth were new to me, but I was able to shadow fairly well.
Then, I used my new textbook -“Ondoku France-go”. This is a Japanese book. Ondoku means “read aloud”. There are sentences and words in each unit, which you listen to and then repeat. I did lesson one a few times until I could read along with the narrator. The content was everyday life, so it wasn’t so difficult.
Total study time: 1 hour 30 minutes – Grammar: 45 minutes, vocabulary: 15 minutes, shadowing: 30 minutes
