Life and language in transition to adulthood

Postby Bilingual_monoglot » Mon Oct 12, 2020 3:03 am

Hello. So, I've just graduated from school and will be taking the A Levels in 3 weeks. Next year I will also start a 2 year career as a conscript. In liew of this, as well as to make a clean start, I have decided to start this new log.

At the moment, I am planning to focus on Chinese, Malay, and either Hindi or Telugu. At some point, I would like to swap out Mandarin Chinese for either Hokkien or Cantonese. Eventually, I would also like to try out some other languages.

This log will be an attempt to document my daily language learning activity and a place for any language related musings and fun facts I have as well.

Yesterday I watched the first episode of the chinese dub of Death Note and did 5 minutes of drops for Chinese, and nothing else. (My current focus is on the upcoming A Level papers, which means that my language programme is going to be fairly minimalist for now.)

It appears that we've hit some challenges within the first week. But don't worry my friends, I have still been doing something on a daily basis. I have taken to listening to Warna 94.2 FM to improve my Malay comprehension the advice of my barber, which is certainly an interesting experience, and I have continued with the Chinese dub of death note. Now if only I could post bout this stuff on my log more regularly. Also, inmorder to manage my time well, my languages are mostly on maintenance mode, so I haven't been so much trying to improve as not regress.
