This week I was distracted by various things. One of them was creating maps for my book about the battle of the Marne. I friend of mine does such things professionally, and since I've helped him with another thing, he helped me with the maps. He didn't make them for me but gave some guidelines on how to do it and prepared a base with terrain shape. I personally find it much better than receiving ready maps, but it requires me almost to start drawing from the beginning.
My daughters started learning Spanish. I also gave them some advice on learning a foreign language, but I had to be careful not to discourage them. I'm not interested in Spanish. I've considered learning it during my studies when I was interested in the Great Armada and naval clashes between England and Spain but eventually dropped the idea in favor of German and the Great War. The side effect of my daughters' activity is a temptation to start working on my French
On the basic level, it is extremely similar, and I understand most of their materials. If they keep going, probably I will not be able to resist that temptation anymore Hebrew

* It was Avigdor 'Janusz' (read: Yanoosh) Ben-Gal, commander of the 7th Armored Brigade. I watched it during map drawing, but there were places where I really understood a lot! Especially when he talked about 188th Brigade being split into platoons scattered over almost whole Golan Heights because it was prepared for "battle day" (some limited clash with Syrians), not for a war where you need to concentrate your tanks. I was delighted with this fragment. Nevertheless, my overall performance was much worse.MSA
I finally finished the 18th DLI Lesson! Nevertheless, I had to skip reviewing cards for two days in a row. Now I have plenty of them to work with, but I hope to do it soon. Mandarin
Here I also skipped reviewing for two days, so I had to struggle with a few hundred cards today, but luckily I managed it
I finally managed to listen to the 31st lesson of Assimil a few times and add all the phrases to Anki and review it. Perhaps I will manage the next lesson this week!
