It's working!

I've been spending more time on listening than usual in the 50 or so hours I've been learning Greek, not counting background listening, and just now I got 10 out of the first 16 questions on Dialang correct :P Knowledge in both listening and vocabulary are still very fuzzy, but I do feel I'm sort of getting it and getting there (fuzzily). Grammar is pretty straightforward so far.

I'm happy and I like Greek :P

My Russian scores could be better, because I got really side-tracked by my Spanish grammar mission, but I'm actually very happy with my total score! Also, last week? How on earth does time fly so fast? :shock:

:oops: I could have done much better. But I definitely would not have created room for a daily study habit right now in Norwegian without the motivation of the challenge, so I'm glad of that.

The bot is driving me crazy. I undo an #oral entry, re-tweet an #oral entry, and my #mp3s total changes :x And I was doing that undoing because 3 of my hashtags had wrong totals. I would leave them because as an accountant I've done enough posting-adjustment-reclassification at work, but the totals are off by 3 times, like, supposed to be 110 mins but shows 330 mins, and I do look back at old stats so I want them correct. I wish I could just adjust the totals and not have to look for individual tweets to undo then redo - or can I? I think I've tried before and it wouldn't let me.

OK, this time, I undo an #oral entry, then do an #mp3s entry, and my #voca total changes :roll: Better give up. At least my #oral total is now only twice what it's supposed to be instead of 3 times.

That's weird! I've had some slight trouble with the bot a couple of times, but nothing like that.

I ended up dropping out this time because of my trip to Bratislava, and I didn't feel like picking it up again when I came back. I should be back in the game in August though.
