Systematiker Does Everything Different: An Intermittent 2019 Log

Postby Systematiker » Sun Jan 06, 2019 1:36 am

I’m not back to regular posting, but I’ve begun catching up on reading the forum, and I’m going to be able to post at least some in a log (if less often than before), so here it is. Including a wildly different set of priorities, schedule, etc.

More to follow

I'm reading Bonhoeffer's prison letters, and now German is tempting me again. That, and a lot of Japanese medical terminology comes from German... :roll: :lol:

Weil auch ich selbst jemand bin, der so einiges (aber nicht alles) anders tut als andere, würde mich eines besonders interessieren. Und zwar: gehört Deutsch zu den Sprachen, die du momentan aktiv lernst? Ansonsten würde ich natürlich auch gerne etwas darüber hören, mit welchen anderen du dich zur Zeit beschäftigst. Aber Deutsch hat in meinem Leben einen gewissen erhöhten Stellenwert, nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil ich es schon in den letzten paar Monaten vor meiner Geburt täglich gehört hatte ;).

Momentan lerne ich deutsch aktiv nicht - ich war eine Zeit lang Dozent an der LMU München; heutzutage feile ich noch an der Sprache, lasse aber öfter den Hobel weg :D

Still not totally updated, still not updating all the posts here or my profile, still not up to date on reading.

The new year (hey, read previous logs, I'm a month and a half into the new year!) is bringing some changes in focus, and how I'll be updating here. I likely won't be doing the super long posts broken down by language, just as a time factor.

My study methods have had to change. I don't have wireless access throughout most of the day, and it's intermittent even in the evenings, so when I've got it, I have to download stuff ahead of time. This has meant more work with audio, podcasts, and much less watching. It also requires a fair bit more planning, which doesn't always happen. My days are often pretty high-tempo, so sometimes I just do nothing and I'm too tired in the evening to do anything then.

Pretty much all of my Romance languages are on the back-burner, where I'm reading a few pages or listening to a podcast at most. Swedish, Dutch, and Danish are that way as well, with even less time given to them. I still use German daily.

I'm still chipping away at Russian and Ukrainian, the former mostly with the slow Russian podcast and the latter with a different lessons podcast. Occasionally I can watch a youtube video, there was channel recommended here somewhere that I've forgotten the name of, but I can follow the guy (he also has accurate RU subtitles) so it's good. I'm still technically in an FLC for Ukrainian, though I almost certainly won't make B1 in the timeframe (and I'm only doing as well as I am because everything I do for Russian is like 85% good for Ukrainian too, it seems)

My main focus is also my harder group: Korean, Persian, Levantine Arabic, and Hebrew. Of course, the harder group plus less time for language learning plus method restriction is making this quite a challenge. Well, I'll do a post at some point in the future about how I'm addressing this, because I feel I'm making decent progress in all of them (especially given the limitations).

Enough for now.

Please, do not let us wait too long for that. Hebrew is my main focus, and I do not feel much progress with that language. Arabic is also in my field of interest.
