    I didn’t fill the tracker in during the week like I usually do so I might’ve missed something but yeah, not much language learning this week. University started again and I felt a bit :/ about that and then I spent the weekend with my family which was very needed. On Sunday I learnt the words têtu (stubborn, it. testardo) and blond vénetien (strawberry blonde) from watching Eddy de Pretto’s instagram stories ahah. Testardo is a word I frequently want to use in Swedish but never remember the translation of so I always make up my own word (hårdhuvad I think I say which is 100% made up) so I’m happy they have the same word in French haha. 

    I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish checkpoint 2 on Duolingo by the end of the week (I have 2 skills on level 2 and 2 on level 3 so it should be doable). I also hope I’ll be able to keep up with reading for fun but I have quite a lot of university readings to do so we’ll see if I’ll have the energy. I should also do writing practice in French twice to keep up with my goal of writing in French twice a month (let’s pretend I didn’t procrastinate it until the end of the month ahah). 

    #language learning update #langblr #kinda telling the words I learned are related to Italian things ahha I said I have 1 (one) interest and it's Italian and Italy

  • Language log 18.1 – 24.1.2020

    I have the two exams I’ve been studying for this week, so hopefully I’ll pass and then have some free time. I started the week strong but then as I had to study more and got the info that I’m not getting the job and had to figure out what to do with my life, I didn’t have time to think about languages.

    With German, I wrote one diary entry and wrote my friend a lot in the first days. I read two chapters from my graded reader, watched videos and listened to music, finally did some vocab and! I actually talked to myself. I don’t know why I don’t do it more often but it was really nice.

    With Spanish, I wrote one diary entry, wrote to my friend, tried to read Harry Potter more, watched some videos (one of which about Spanish culture) and talked to myself.

    And for Swedish, well, I wrote one diary entry, watched Farmen Monday to Thursday, practiced vocab a bit, tried drops again after a long time and talked to myself. We had our zoom call yesterday but I had to study, so I couldn’t attend. But next week, hopefully!

    Keep reading

  • 4/100 // 9:28pm

    Tasks:

    -Put doorknob on door ✔

    -Conjugation worksheets ✔

    -Translate practice sentences ✔

    -Anki ✔

    Hmmm…what did I do. Felt like the day went by quickly as well as slowly because it’s still pretty early in the night. Today it was a rainy day and I absolutely loved it. It’s supposed to rain all week so I’m excited for that. I didn’t start my work until late 7ish-8 but the lazy girl pushed through and got it done. There’s not much to say, I got some conjugation worksheets off of google which really helped the reinforcement aspect and I also did the Anki vocabulary which helped A TON. Even in a day, I forgot a lot. So repetition will definitely be my best friend during this journey. I don’t really have a plan for tomorrow because tomorrow is the first day of school and I’m just trying to wind down until then because I have an 8am class and this is the most rest I’ll have for the next several months sadly. I guess I can briefly plan it right now! 

    I think I’m going to hop back on the workbook because I don’t want to get too off track with that. I want to be fairly consistent. It really shapes my lesson plan to be honest. Also of course, I’ll do the Anki vocabulary deck and I’ll add to it based off the workbook. Maybe this time I’ll actually add a new deck? I don’t really know what the deck will consist of but hey! I’ll just wing it lol

    Also, a side note! Since the beginning of the Spring semester is officially starting tomorrow I’m going to make it a new tasks every day to sit at my desk for lectures as well as homework and studying. Last semester, I totally neglected it. I did all my work from the bed no matter how uncomfortable it was. I want to start off with good habits. I just be so cold in the morning 😭 New semester, new me ig

    #should i add pics to these post #???? #are yall overwhelmed and bored when it's just text? #langblr#studyblr #100 days of productivity
