I didn’t really feel like studying today, so I did no exam work. I listened to Mastering French Vocabulary for 20 minutes and did a tape from the FSI course. I also signed up to Lingopie, a website which offers TV programmes in French with subtitles. I started watching a series and did about 45 minutes. It seems like a good addition to my studies – listening practice, real world language, and I can do it when I’m feeling too tired to study.
I listened to Mastering French Vocabulary for 30 minutes and did some grammar questions for the level 3 exam.
I listened to Mastering French Vocabulary for 30 minutes, and did some grammar exercises for my level 3 test. I also did a tape from the FSI course and about an hour of reading and listening on LingQ.
I listened to my Mastering Vocabulary book for 30 minutes and did verb questions for the level 3 test. I also did a tape from the FSI course. And, I reactivated my LingQ account! I used it for the first time since 2012! I’m going to use it for listening and reading. I did about an hour on it today.
I didn’t have much time today, so I just did a tape from the FSI course. It was mainly drills related to the second dialogue.
I did some vocabulary and grammar exercises for my level 3 test. I also listened to Barron’s vocabulary book for 30 minutes and did a tape from the FSI French course.
I did some level 3 vocabulary exercises, and 30 minutes of listening and reading using my Barron’s Mastering French Vocabulary book. It contains 13,000 words and has 10 hours of audio. I guess if I do 30 minutes every day, in 20 days I will have encountered 13,000 French words at least once. So, that’s what I’m going to do! I also copied out some future tenses of verbs from memory. I also finished unit 1 of the FSI course.
I studied the relative pronouns lequel, laquelle, auquel, duquel, etc. I got about half of the practice questions right. The problem I seem to have is not knowing when prepositions are required. I also copied out the future form of some verbs.
I didn’t have much time today, so I just did tape 1.5 of the FSI course. It was lots of drills and repetition. Just what I need!
I studied interrogative pronouns today. I think I understand it, but would struggle to make my own sentences. More practice required. I copied out some imperfect verb forms as well. I think I’m ready to move onto another tense. I also read about the preposition “de” and did tape 1.4 of the FSI course. The drills are good practice.
