Arga restaurangen
Bastuklubben
Böda Camping
Arga snickare


kanal9play.se

Kustbevarkna


kanal11play.se

Lyxyachten

svtplay.se

Vem vet mest
Torka aldrig tårar utan handskar

So you will find a lot, if you are not choosy.


There is also
Hjem available at the moment. There are 2 days left for the first part, but I think it is Norwegain isn't it?

Just for your information:

There is another short-series online at svtplay.se. The series is called Gynekologen i Askim. I haven't watched it yet, but maybe someone of you guys find it interesting.

Hjem is indeed Norwegian (it means "home").

Thanks and I was wondering why I didn't understand anything.




It is September and I have the feeling I have nothing done and the year is nearly over. So it is time for a “mid-term” review.

Ok it’s is not completely true. I haven’t done much for the TAC or completed a lot of my tasks/goals, but I did a lot of other stuff. I finished my studies this year and I went to Ireland for 4 months. During the time in Ireland I did nothing for any language. I just enjoyed my time there. Of course I spoke and wrote a lot of English, but didn’t do any formal study.

 English
How did the four months influence my English? I am feeling more confidence now. I wouldn’t say my grammar has improved; I still make the same mistakes. But my vocabulary and listening skills are much better than before.

Somehow I managed to change to English books and movies/series. When I am watching a DVD or reading a book, I am definitely choosing English now. I hope that will also influence my Super Challenge.

I took a look into my grammar book. I think it is a good idea to review a few things. So I did the study guide part of English Grammar in Use. It recommended me to study 48 lessons. If I read the explanations I’ll know/recognize them. But if I try to use them I’ll not do it correctly. So I will do this 48 lessons.

In January my planned tasks were:
Quote:
- Complete my own little lang-8 challenge. See more in post 61

I stopped because of the lack of time. I am still thinking it is a good idea and I will continue with and I will hopefully finished by the end of the year.
Quote:
- I read regularly and from time to time I watch DVDs.

Yep, that works fine.
Quote:
- Work through Destination B2 by Malcolm Mann

Haven’t started yet, but I have the book.
Quote:
- Have some skype conversations

I’ve had no skype conversations, but I had conversations. Now it is time to go back to skype.


Swedish
Jag har gjort ingenting för 5 månander. Jag tycker jag har glömt allt.

Mina arbetsuppgifter från januari:
Quote:
- Stay up to date with my Anki deck

Jag gjorde inte anki i Irland, men nu är jag på det aktuella läget. Det var mycket att göra.
Quote:
- Read a lättläst book

Nej, jag har inte gjort det, men jag har köpt en lättläst bok och en barnbok. Nu måste jag bara läsa de.
Quote:
- Listen to klartext

Jag har inte gjort det regelbundet.
Quote:
- Study 400 hours till December

Nej och det kommer att bli svårt. Det finns inte tillräckligt dagar kvar i år. Jag är nu på 57 timmar.
Quote:
- Complete Assimil and Lehrbuch der schwedisch Sprachen

Det är samma sak som med den lättläst boken.
Quote:
- Add native materials

Jag titta på tv (svtplay.se) då och då.
Quote:
- Review and learn grammar

Jag har inte lärt mig grammatik.

Jag har tittat på ”Äkta människor” den här veckan. Det var en positiv överraskning. Jag förstod mer än jag trodde. Jag forstod inte allt, men jag förstod nog att följa.
Nu jag måste träna skriva och prata.

English
I did one grammar review lesson. This week I’ve spent my time on reading the book “A Clash of Kings”. I read also a few pages very detailed. I looked up the words; I paid attention to phrases and prepositions. Reading is much more fun without this stuff, but for a few pages it’s fine.
I am also really happy about the unknown words. It really doesn’t matter if I know words like portcullis. I can’t think about a situation where I would use it.
I made a list of the useful and unusual words.

TAC 2014 is over. To be honest I haven’t done much for Swedish this year. I have just focused on other things and Swedish was the first thing I dropped. So my outcome was quite low this year. I didn’t recognize any improvements, but I don’t want to give up so this story will be continued in 2015.

English
No formal studies here. I spoke, wrote, listened and read a lot this year. I feel more comfortable using English, but I have the feeling my grammar is getting worse and worse.
And I got told that my pronunciation got really odd this year. For some reasons I’ve started to mumble a lot. It’s just the case for English; I don’t mumble in German. I stutter and using a lot of filler words in Swedish, but I don’t mumble there either.
My language challenge is running quite good. I borrowed a lot of dvds from the library. Usually I read more than watching movies/series. I also don’t have a television, but for some reasons I had just read 33 books and watches 99 films.

Spanish
I haven’t done anything. Three languages were just too many.

Gott nytt år, Mareike!

I’m happy to read that you’ll keep studying Swedish. We both didn’t see much progress in 2014, but with a little help from the new Scandinavian team and some reciprocal encouragement, I bet we can do much better this year!

I’m looking forward to reading about your progress during TAC’15!
