I decided to start a language log in this wonderful, language learners-friendly place .
Some time ago I decided to learn a number of classical languages, so currently I study Classical Hebrew and Latin. At first I went for Ancient Greek but lately decided to learn Latin first.
For Hebrew, I read Tanakh with the help of "Dictionnaire Hebrew-Français" par M. N. Ph. Sander, and English translation of Tanakh, which I use as parallel text to check whether I got original text right or as alternative to dictionary.
For Latin I go through Adler's Ollendorfian "Practical Grammar" and Lingua Latina per Se Illustrata (first volume "Familia Romana").
I also learn Japanese since February 2016th. I always wanted to learn this language even though it is absolutely non-practical, alas, when I was young and, supposedly, full of energy - I failed to do that. So this is a challenge of I-the-adult to me-the-youth.
Let's start from some statistics for June:
- Japanese's share is about 50 hours. That's quite a lot, as I have about 100-120 hours available for "preferred" activities (marked in my time-management application by green color). It was mostly playing of Danganronpa (40 hours).
- Latin - 27.5 hours. Adler & Familia Romana.
- Hebrew - 20 hours.
