June Language Update – What update?

June was very mean to me. May too. But especially June. I was snowed under with tons of work — I am not complaining. I love what I do at the office, and I get great feedback with my work. But things started to pick up in May then became a full-blown monster in June.…

one does not simply learn hungarian

Or, the original title: Language learning update – week ending 15 March Japanese On days that I badly needed some extra sleep minutes, I would begin to think that this whole JLPT N1 thing was a bad idea…just 3 weeks in and I am starting to dread my flashcards. I have got 18 decks for…

Language learning update – March 8

Ta-daaa! Look who made it through week 2. And only one black item. Whew. I am getting used to a routine and it’s not so bad. In general, I tend to keep Japanese in the morning and Hungarian in the afternoon. In the evening, I try to brush up on items by “watering” things on…

Language learning update – Week ending 1 March 2015

As I said previously, I have re-evaluated my language goals and have put together a daily plan to ensure that I am on track with these goals. My reaction to this first week? Whew! I survived!! It wasn’t easy, especially at the end of the weekday, when for some unknown reason, work started to pour in.…

Super Language Overhaul

Super Language Overhaul

I have a confession: I don’t think I would succeed in my very first italki challenge. It was going well and I had this plan of taking 5 sessions of French first, then Hungarian second. I finished all my sessions for basic French almost midway into the challenge. Then after that, I booked another package…

Happy 2015!

Whew! It was a whirlwind in 2014! I didn’t realise how much has happened until I narrated my entire year to my surfing sister, Desiree. Last year was big, fast and fun. I feel that 2015 will even be bigger, faster and more awesome! To start the year right, I signed up for the italki…

It took me a fair amount of time but I think I found a workable study plan for Hungarian. As there are considerably less available materials, I needed all the help I could get. Compared to French, I am having a more difficult time with this language, mainly because it is so different from the languages…

My italki Notebook - my first entries! See the mistakes I made?

Last month, I signed up with italki because all my favourite polygots were talking about it. But I got overwhelmed by the sheer number of people in the site so I logged out and forgot about it. But this month, I was re-evaluating my language goals and thought I needed some more structure that can…

90-day language challenge – update #1

The first 10 days of my 90-day language challenge was not easy. Not surprising, of course. In the beginning, I was struggling to find the time to do all 3. Despite this, I still managed to find pockets of extra time during the day for language learning. During my commute, during my evening jog, after…

Mini Magyar update: Starting over again

This is a long overdue update on my Hungarian lessons. Update? What update? For weeks, I put Hungarian (and Japanese) on the back burner while I concentrated on French. I must admit that I am struggling a bit with the language because: 1) it is so different from the languages I know. The vocabulary and…
