First, thanks for the well wishes on my graduation, both in this thread and others!
I ended up changing my goals for the week which was unexpected but ok, if not smart in the long run (and the immediate future). I realized pretty quickly that I needed to do more work on verbs before doing the verb related exercises in Édito A2. As a result, I ended up splitting my text related time between Édito and Practice Makes Perfect French Verb Tenses, which is a shockingly good book. My new plan of attack is to pass over all of the verby parts of Édito and stick with PMP French Verb Tenses. After I feel more competent with regards to verbs, I'll go over what's in Édito. Verb tenses aren't given me a whole lot of trouble with regards to comprehension, thankfully.
Speaking of reading comprehension, I ended up reading three or four articles on RFI's android app this morning while my car was getting worked on. I didn't have a terribly difficult time with things which was great, and these were the regular articles, not the section of the website aimed at people learning French. Needless to say, I'm thinking about starting another round of my Monthly News Challenge
I've also managed to stumble upon a bunch French food related news like shows that people have uploaded to Youtube. I've watched enough of of them for the algorithm to start suggesting them to me now. I don't understand a lot
of things, but at least I've managed to find something that holds my interest.
My four week French class starts on Monday and I think the goals outside of that class are to essentially at the very least work from the verb book, at least skim Édito, and watch French shows. I'll get a better idea of what I'm actually capable of doing by the end of next week.
