Spanish

- HoyHablamos podcast, 1 episode, 253 - Los propósitos profesionales
- Watched 2 episodes of an Argentinian sitcom, Casados con hijos

Not the most productive couple of days for my Spanish.

No subtitles for the Argentinian show so I'm riding the bike w/o training wheels xD. My comprehension was mediocre but that's a great thing, room for improvement! I managed to laugh at some of the jokes lol. I'll rewatch them before moving on. The shows reminds me of

Russian

- Reviewing the alphabet
- Pimsleur Unit 2 and 3
- Memrise Russian 1, 40/560 words

Oooh, I'm always up for more Argentinian Spanish so I'll have to check out Casados con hijos, but what does the show remind you of? :shock:

Spanish

- El Perro que habla no muerde - Paco Ardit (B2 graded reader) - Chapters 40/40 (I read this all of last week, just forgot to mention it)
- El Maratón - Paco Ardit (B2 graded reader) - Chapters 8/40
- Read some of Erik Vogler y los crímenes del rey blanco by Beatriz Osés (lo leo a trompicones xDD)
- Casados con hijos, 1x01 (rewatch)

My comprehension has gone up but there are still noticeable gaps in my comprehension. Not so much that I can't understand the plot tho. The next time I'll make notes and ask my Argentinian friends to help me decipher some of the faster/''slurred'' speech. It's already a great feeling understanding more than I did the last time haha

Russian

- Reviewing the alphabet
- Pimsleur Unit 4
- Michel Thomas, Russian Foundation 1x06
- Memrise Russian 1, 45/560 words

Other than the pronunciation and the hard and soft sign, I think I have familiarised myself with the alphabet. I think I can move on to Assimil!
