I did grammar exercises on the pronouns “y” and “en”. I failed miserably. I think the issue is that I don’t have a grasp of the basic sentence structures using “a” and “de”. The level 3 book I’m currently using is quite difficult. It doesn’t explain the concepts in detail. Luckily I have a whole library of other books for reference.
I did a unit from my Read Aloud book, studied some basic grammar patterns, and wrote out 100 words from my vocabulary book. I also listened to the audio for the vocabulary book in the car.
I studied for my cosmetics exam and finished the second story from my Matsumoto Seicho short story collection. I also started the third.
I studied reflexive pronouns using my level 3 French textbook, and did some repeating using one of my vocabulary chants CDs.
I did a unit from my Read Aloud book, and started a grammar review. If I’m going to take HSK 4 in September, I need my grammar to be up to scratch. At the moment, it isn’t. I also studied 100 words from my vocabulary book.
I did some more practice questions for the cosmetics exam (which is only two months away!), and finished the first story of my Matsumoto Seicho novel. I also started the second story. I’m enjoying it, but I prefer his long novels to his short stories.
I started the pronoun unit in my level 3 book. I’ve been studying pronouns with another book, so I found the questions quite easy to answer. I have a listening book in the same series, which I must start on – there are only 3 months until my exam!
I did a unit from my Read Aloud book and studied 100 words from my level 1-4 vocabulary book. I also have the CD for the vocabulary book playing in my car.
I continued with my cosmetics exam study. My pharmacology exam has been cancelled due to Covid, but I was going to put that off until November anyway. I started a new Matsumoto Seicho book. It’s a collection of short stories written in the 1960s.
I studied the subjunctive, and finished up studying verb conjugations in my level 3 textbook. There was a mini test at the end of the chapter. I failed miserably. It showed me that I haven’t really learnt the verb conjugations well enough.
