My original plan for my Winter break (which I had changed a bit after my last post):
Lots of French grammar
Working on Biblical Hebrew
Watching stuff in French
Applying for scholarships for grad school
What has actually happened so far:
10 chapters of grammaire progressive
4 and a half chapters of The Guide to Lashon Hakodesh
Started on one scholarship application
Played a lot of Sims 4
On the bright side, I had a bit of a breakthrough in terms of the verb charts that various textbooks advise you make/have as assignments or exercises for Biblical Hebrew last night. I also decided that I need to just get two notebooks for Hebrew - one for notes and one for doing exercises. I need two so I can reference the notes while also doing exercises without flipping back and forth. The question is do I have any spare spiral notebooks (or at least one of the inexpensive staple bound Clairefontaine notebooks that I like which is more likely something I have laying around)? I also really want to buy Torah 4 Children's chumash text/workbooks
- or at least the first half of Bereshit to try it out. From the preview, they kind of remind me of Lingua Latina. I've told myself that I won't get it until I finish (or nearly finish) with my current book, but I might change that to until I'm half way through it....or I could just buy it today because I totally
need more books, especially 8ish months before I move to Ottawa. Never mind that I have to sort through hundreds of books to sell back to Powells.
Unrelated to language learning, I had a very good weekend in terms of rowing which was nice. The goal for tomorrow is work on scholarship apps most of the afternoon and into the evening with a small break for making dinner.
edit: low and behold, I quite easily found a nearly unused A5 Clairefontaine notebook that I bought two years ago in Germany.
