13th February 2021 – French

I studies the pronoun “en” today. I’m still unsure of where to put it in certain sentence structures, but at least I know what it is. I also did a few pages of word dictation from my level 3 test book. I didn’t do so badly. It was the accents that tripped me up! It seems I’ve “half-learned” some words. Like with my Chinese, I need to go back and learn the words properly.

3rd February Update

Not much language study going on this year! I’ve had a busy start to the year, and am conscious of the cosmetics and pharmacology exams which are creeping up on me. The only study I’m doing at the moment is listening to French and Chinese in my car. The rest of my spare time is taken up studying for the tests. I still aim to take the 3rd grade on the French exam in June though. I wanted to take the 3rd grade of HSK (Chinese) in April, but I don’t think that will happen. It will mean going to Osaka, and we are not supposed to travel around because of COVID19. Hopefully I’ll get some language study done this weekend!
