So I had ATracker report how many hours of language study I've done since getting back from Mexico. It's reeeeeally sad: 48 hours of Spanish and 43 hours of French. Since January. That's only 13 & 11 minutes per day on average, respectively. Ouch.

OTOH, I'm pretty pleased with my French level for so little study time! ;)

While I was in Mexico, obviously I had way more free time. But also, I had a rule that all my entertainment had to be non-English. Maybe I need to get closer to that rule again…

You know what's not cool? Autocorrect problems in multiple languages. ><

Total time spent on languages Monday, August 15th: 3 hr. 15 min.

ESPAÑOL 2 hr. 52 min.

  • Vi "La dictadura perfecta", una película de sátira política mexicana, dirigida por Luis Estrada. He visto también su película "La ley de herodes", su primera. Son muy parecidas, y me gustan las dos.

    La vi con unos amigos no hispanohablantes, así que sí había subtítulos, pero no los necesitaba para entender. A pesar de la gran cantidad de palabrotas, podía entender fácilmente casi todo.

    Puede ser que vivir en un país por un año me ayudara. ;)

  • Después de ver la película, leí la página de Inciclopedia sobre Enrique Peña Nieto, el actual presidente de México. Muy muy irreverente y chistoso, si ya sabes un poco sobre la política en el país.

FRANÇAIS 23 min.

  • J'ai lu Twitter.

I said I was declaring forum bankruptcy, but what I apparently meant was "except for the ~350 most-interesting-looking threads." :roll:

Y'all, just stop writing such interesting stuff, okay?? ;)

Total time spent on languages Friday, August 19th: 1 hr. 50 min.

ESPAÑOL 20 min.

  • Nada interesante, sólo escuché las noticias.

FRANÇAIS 1 hr. 30 min.

  • J'ai écouté le podcast "News in Slow French". Je l'ai pu comprendre bien !

  • J'ai trouvé le livre "Fantastique Maître Renard" par Roald Dahl, traduit en français. Selon mes notes, il y a 234 mots en le premier chapitre. J'ai su 71% des mots avec certitude, plus 14% lesquels j'ai pu deviner, donc il y a 15% des mots inconnus. Alors, me semble un bon pourcentage pour l'apprentissage !

I've been keeping a "bullet journal" for roughly 2 months now. Finally decided to track some of my language-learning in it. Mostly I'm looking to keep my resource-wanderlust in check, and to balance my time between the 4 skills better.

I follow that rule too! Except when I'm going to the cinema or watching something with friends that's got to be in Spanish... :lol:

Nice spread! I love using the bullet journal! You're giving me a lot of inspiration, I'm going to do something similar on my journal too!
Me encanta el ministerio del tiempo, espero que lo estés disfrutando, ¿qué te parece el acento español de España después de haber estado en México? ¿Cuál entiendes mejor?
