I did few pages of medical vocabulary from one of my pharmacology test textbooks. I’ll need to go through it again. There is a lot to learn!
I read through some more grammar points in my level 4 textbook and tried some of the questions. I got most of the answers right, but some were just guesses. I also did a listening test, and only got half right. I finished with my chants CD, repeating for about ten minutes.
I started a new book today – Pronouns and Prepositions. I need more work on pronouns, so the book is perfect. I also did about ten minutes of listening to verbs and repeating using my chants book. The chants have the infinitive, the “je” and “vous” forms. It’s good to hear the pronunciations of the different forms.
I finished reading my Matsumoto Seicho novel. I’ll have to buy another one to read over the winter holidays. I also studied for my pharmacology and cosmetics tests, and the Kanji Kentei. I also did some idioms.
I started using my new Chinese level 4 textbook. I started with the listening. I got just under half of the questions correct. I need to build my vocabulary, so next I studied some words from my vocabulary chants book. More input required! I also did a few pages of grammar. It was quite simple, but it was a good review.
I did some reading passages from my level 3 French textbook and reviewed the conditional. I also reviewed pronoun placement, as I seem to have forgotten a lot. I also listened to my new French vocabulary chants CD.
I have been keeping up with my Japanese studies. I have been reading a novel by Matsumoto Seicho, and have nearly finished it. I’ve also been studying pharmacology in Japanese for the pharmacology exam next year. And I’ve been studying idioms and kanji for the Kanji Kentei most days.
I haven’t studied for a few days, so it felt good to get back into it. I did some grammar from my HSK 3 textbook, and some vocabulary from a new vocabulary book. The book introduces the words in chants, with music in the background. This is supposed to make the words easier to remember. I have ordered a book for another Chinese test – the Chinese Kentei level 4. The test is a Japanese one, and has more of a focus on grammar and vocabulary than HSK. I thought it would be a good idea to study that too.
I haven’t studied for a few days, so it felt good to get back into it. I learnt the conditional form of verbs. I also did some vocabulary – I have some new vocabulary books which introduce the words in chants with music in the background. I hope this helps the words to stick. I did some vocabulary exercises from my level 3 test book as well. I’m out of the habit of my daily Duolingo lessons. I must get back onto that.
I did a Kanji Kentei lesson, 5 4-character idioms, and a chapter from my pharmacology exam book. There are a lot of medicines to learn, and most are written in katakana and very long. I’m going to need to review the book a few times. I also continued reading my Matsumoto Seicho novel.
