I took some time off from my regular study over the past couple of weeks to catch my breath and think about what I want to do for 2019. I haven't devised a whole year's worth of plans--I'm prone to change plans at a moment notice anyhow, due to my life circumstances, health and other factors that so rudely come into play--but I have decided on a starting point for the end of 2018 to carry me over the holidays and into 2019:
- Scottish Gaelic: Super Challenge (Full)*
- French: Super Challenge (Full)*
- German: I'm currently reviewing German with Memrise, Duolingo, German Quickly, and playing video games in German. My biggest weakness, as is common with "dormant" languages, is how much vocabulary I've forgotten, so that is my main focus.
- Welsh: Work on finishing Colloquial Welsh and review the Duolingo tree, mainly to dot my i's and build confidence. After that, I want to work on Gareth King's Intermediate Welsh grammar/wookbook concurrently while I complete Stenson's Intermediate Irish.
- Indonesian: Work on finishing Colloquial Indonesian and review the Duolingo tree, likewise to build confidence with what i've learned so far. What I will do after CI, I have not decided.
* Regarding my SC, no one so far has objected to my query about giving myself credit for media that I have used/completed in the past 5 months, things that I completed within the time frame of the current SC but prior to my signing up for it. I will be rather conservative in this, though--I won't be tracking done every article I read and the like. But there are a few things I would like credit for, since I was viewing/reading these things precisely as part of my Gaelic or French study. I will list them in a later post.
