I haven’t done any Spanish for a while as I’ve been concentrating on French and Chinese. I’m getting more interested in it though, so I read a few pages of Spanish for Dummies. I’m just playing with Spanish at the moment. I’m not due to start learning it for a couple of years. Just having a bit of fun and light relief from learning Chinese and French!
My cosmetics exam is next week, so I’ve been focussing on that. I still have had time to read a Matsumoto Seicho novel, and keep my French study going on Duolingo. I had a streak of 80 days, but then got really busy and lost it.
I also decided to take the French a bit slower, and focus each week on a verb tense. I was getting confused with all the tenses – I was trying to memorise too much at once. I’m doing the imperfect tense this week.
I still listen to my HSK vocabulary CDs in the car every day, but that is all I’ve done as far as Chinese is concerned. Once the exam is over next Sunday, I’m going to get back onto my HSK 3 textbooks.
Spanish has been placed on the back burner – I’m not due to study it for another three years anyway, so I’m not too concerned about that. It’s more important for me to get back to doing more French and Chinese as I have exams in them next year!
I have two cosmetics-related tests in Japanese at the end of this month and at the beginning of next month, so I’m going to focus on those in November. I will continue doing a daily Spanish lesson on Duolingo, but it won’t be a priority for a while!
I did a lesson on Duolingo. I think this is going to be my limit for a while!
I did 5 minutes on Duolingo.
I did 10 minutes on Duolingo.
I just did a lesson on Duolingo. I’ve moved onto the “schedule” skill and am learning the days of the week.
I continued with the present tense skill on Duolingo. I did about 10 minutes.
I did more present tense verb practice on Duolingo.
I continued with the new grammar skill on Duolingo. Still on the present tense, but taking it slowly.
