More language . . . less social media, an update on my progress.
Since my first post on Feb 11, 2018 about re-learning German for my depth year project, I have steadily worked my way through 10 beginner readers, 5 intermediate readers, most of the Duolingo app, and a grammar book.
I recently started reading and listening to the Harry Potter series in German. I didn’t anticipate it being this challenging, but I am slowly working my way through. It helps that I love the stories and am familiar with them. The vocabulary is the biggest challenge as many of the words aren’t in my dictionary (admittedly it is a very old dictionary, 1985).
I’ve noticed that after a reading session I am more mentally tired and that naturally seems to make me want to move my body rather than sitting still. So I am getting in some extra movement.
Reading: Harry Potter 1 (German), Farewell to Mars (B Zahnd), Glass Houses (Gamache #13, L Penny), The Book of Three (L Alexander)
