You set Sept. 6 as the start date and this is an update.
1-Have viewed all the videos once.
2-Just received today the Study Guide for Part I.
3-Have reviewed about 5 chapters of the Textbook
4-Have received Part II of the Workbook
5-Workbook Part I is on order and is due Sept. 8th.
My wife said she wants to join in and that I need to calm down and not be so excited.
My apologies for the delay, but it looks as if Sept. 8th will be my start date or whenever it arrives.
If Ani, who started this challenge doesn't mind, it's a good a place as any.
My goal is to do one chapter a week. The only reason I picked September 6th is because that is the beginning of the academic year in the United States. It is the day after the Labor Day holiday. People can start at any time they want.
Here is Ani's original post, emphasis mine:
After recent discussion of completing courses on PeterMollenburg's log, and a few people expressing interest in the same sort of goals (if not the same languages), it seemed sensible to start a challenge thread to support and encourage each other.
This thread is a place to connect people who have decided to complete a course or several courses and want to develop consistency. Lets all post our progress and encourage each other here. We won't be keeping a registered list of participants so that some people can join us for a short burst of course work, and others for the long haul.
Hopefully we will inspire each other by our work which will lead to more complete mastery of certain elements of the languages we are studying.
To join in, please post in roughly this format:
Comments: Any comments on why you have selected the given course material and or what you hope to improve by its completion.
Please post link to your log if you have one.
Come back periodically and post an update on progress and your thoughts on the course so far. Let us know if you feel you are improving in the areas you had hoped to improve. If you haven't posted in a while, please add the link to your log again so that anyone who hasn't found you log yet may do so. Lets use this thread to share our progress and encourage each other, but keep longer discussion of the merits of various courses either in the logs or relevant threads on the board.
In that spirit, I think we should keep longer discussions to the thread you started on French In Action.
