After last week's outage, I've decided to post my log on both sites.

Another two weeks since my last update. this time not my fault. The forum was offline last week.

Slower progress now. I've reached lesson 82 of both Assimils, I expect to
start lessons 83 and 84 today. Nearing the end now. I still haven't started
the second active wave (translation).

Now on sentence set 9 (of 20) for Glossika German level 2. Together with level
1 that's 1450 sentences and almost halfway to the 3000 in the 3 levels. I'm
still very happy with this product.

The reason progress has been slower is because I've been spending more time on
the Antosch and Lin site. At least for German, it's a really good product IMO
and I heartily recommend it. I've got a little addicted and am now on 1351

I'm finally starting to feel a difference in my German 2 months in and am
starting to feel this B1 goal for the summer might just be feasible!

I found out the Megabus goes from London to Cologne and have booked a 3-day
trip for the end of the month! Return trip and 2 nights in a hostel cost £90
and I've never been to Germany. Should hopefully be a nice reward and chance
to practise.

Finally I have listened to some more Spanish music every day. Unfortunately
it's the only maintenance I can stand for the moment. I'd be really grateful
for any song recommendations.

That's it till next week. I'm fairly happy with progress.

Wow, working through two Assimils at once? Seems like it could get rather hairy later on! Are you doing Without Toil and With Ease, or one of those and the newest one just called "German"?

What is Antosch and Lin? A quick google search makes it seem like just a flashcard site. Can you share a bit more on it?

Also, awesome you can go on the trip to Cologne for so cheap!
