Yeah, I'm going to spend a lot of time on at least one advanced language, so not looking to be competitive in target language minutes, whatever I do. Thought I'd give it a go again, since it'd been quite a few cycles since my last one.

I do that about once every two weeks! I think I'll give it a go with Finnish this time, so put me down for Cat IV+, according to that list.

I didn't know about the "yesterday" tag. Can Serpent or someone please write up a paragraph on how to use it, so I could add it to the OP? Thanks.

Sorry I raced up a few places in Target Langage (Greek) today. I reclassified my Greek SRS time from "multilingual" to "greek".

I like Greek! :P
