Long day today1. I thought I got nothing much done, until I wrote this post. So, more incentive to keep writing these. Python Learning about how to make keyword arguments stick. And how to think about structuring programs Devops Deep dive into how to add prow job listings to the dashboard and viceversa; how to go about looking for the job from the dashboard Urdu / French Lots of practice with vowels and the ‘jiim’ group of letters....
The words to study are getting overwhelming now. Just hope this is temporary. Last week’s mnemonic tip is working wonders though. I am learning and remembering more words faster. And now I see why the app is not yet giving me lots of sentences. It wants me to build up a core vocabulary. And the time I give it is not much. So it will all come with time. (The way the words flow, in my head, is a bit easier now)...
This week was a slog. Kept at it. Specially after reading this. Can understand phrases, here and there now. So, that’s progress. :)
I am beginning to understand sentences a bit. That is all
This was a boring week. But I kept at it. If I think, I have made progress, all I need to do is listen to a podcast. And then I understand how far I still have to go. Still at the stage where I am adding words to my basic vocabulary and doing review. But there is steady, incremental progrgess.
Didn’t listen to podcasts. But kept up with the app. I can now listen to the french sentences in the app and kind of get it. No so yet, with stuff outside. But I somehow think, I’m gaining the teensiest bit of fluency.
I can understand bits and pieces in spoken speech now. At it!
slipped a day. but did the rest. the podcast was amazing. i did not understand anything. will keep at it :)
French, seems to be the only thing that I do regularly. Probably because it takes me only 45 minutes to an hour daily. (And that is because I am dumb and slow and deliberate. I’m sure other folks must be doing this is 10-20 minutes) While I thought I was making progress, I had a funny sort of realisation when a friend asked me if I could speak and carry on a basic conversation in French....
Nothing much to say except that I am still at it. Chipping away slowly at this, waiting for my all at once moment.
