Cebuano (Austronesian; malayo/polynesian language of the Philippines with around 20 million speakers but not many learning resources).
I have been speaking it most days, but not actively learning for a year (university course on Spanish and technical study for work took priority).
First week back learning:-
Memrise - 1500 sentences - I get about 1 in 50 wrong - so very happy with that.
I've read 65 pages of a language guide / grammar written by Mormons. 65 pages remain.
I've had 3 sessions with a tutor over skype.
Repeated from my blog with minor edits - I'm thinking that some of the Listening-Reading should be intense study of the text. Sentence construction, pronounciation, prosody, intonation, ways in which verbs are conjugated and whether this is modern colloquial usage or old style.
pronunciation (this was a worry until recently)
clear / understandable
wide and deep vocabulary
work towards long sentences
verbs that look like nouns(?)
learning - how, what, why
how children develop
To speak colloquial Cebuano at home and on holiday in July. Ruled out formal Bisaya.
Not quite sure yet - next session.
Method (overall / comprehensive):
Memrise / quizlet / ankidroid are good fill ins (no need to concentrate, even do while watching TV). I haven't updated the memrise app so that I can still use it without wifi (phone data).
L-R - some ability to concentrate, but can pause it.
Grammar / language guide takes real effort and quiet.
Tutor - need to dedicate time - hard with work and other commitments.
1) finish guide (65 pages)
2) Memrise / quizlet / ankidroid etc Cebuano expressions
3) I have magbinisaya kita primer 1. Skim/read it. A5 160+ pages especially grammar review page 111
4) repeat 2 a bit
5) MODERN-ish bible gospels (need to check order but I think Mark, Luke, Matthew). Perhaps just a few pages. This WRITTEN bible is 1970s translation and closer to modern usage. Previous version I used for listening-reading befuddled native Cebuano speakers.
6) l-r old Bible app. Language seems archaic but I have the audio/text linked. Best bet for listening / pronounciation practice.
Now more developed an idea...
i) Read English (1) - R1
ii) Listen Ceb-Old (2a) + Read Ceb-Old (2a) - L2a+R2a
iii) Listen Ceb-Old (2a) + Read English (1) - L2a+R1
iv) Read Ceb-New (2b) + Speak Ceb-New (2b) out loud - S2b
v) Write - anything in Cebuano - notes, words, anything - W2
vi) Speak out notes - S2
vii) Write Ceb-New - copy by hand, highlight interesting (for later lookups) - W2b
7) other media (Wikipedia, Duterte tv from when he was mayor)
8) Look at written notes and spot patterns, look up info
9) repeat / complete all above while having Skype sessions from a tutor.
