So, the day is sunny again (even though it's almost 5 pm. I managed to finish yesterday's dialogue and read today's dialogue (the third one) completely. Overall I got 4 sentences I couldn't infer completely from context or look words up. I really enjoy this book Continuing Course, wish there were more language textbooks like this for less commonly learned languages. Still, the easier it gets to read, the more worried I become about only being able to recognize the grammatical forms and not to produce them. We'll see. I'm still highly motivated and only get more fascinated about the Georgian language!!

One more text at the newspaper reader is over and so is one more dialogue at the Continuing Course. I'm happy with my speed at learning. Newspaper is still fairly more complicated than the story which is pretty much contextualized. I'm happy overall, I just love this language! Wish I could study only Georgian and nothing else =D

Hehe I love other languages as well, but some of these are way easier, either in terms of the learning process or of the resources available or both, and I just feel like a sort of obligation to learn them. With Georgian, it's indeed like discovering a new world. I'm sure if I ever get to read Georgian easily, I won't be obsessed with "learning", just with actually using the language, and I'll have room for more.

I've finished today's lesson 28 of the Georgian Newspaper Reader, as well as the 7-page long dialogue at the Continuing Course. Things are going on pretty well so far, I think that when I finish the dialogues I'll be able to learn even more from the prose and poetry texts.

One more day with all tasks accomplished. I'm tired, to say the truth. All the heat didn't help. Since I'm reading up to 10 pages in Georgian each day (and looking up loads of words I still haven't learned by heart), I feel much less motivated to actively use Georgian for writing or text-chatting than I do with French and Norwegian. There's no real solution because if I start splitting lessons up they will take twice or 3x longer and I'll get fed up with the book sooner than before. Anyway, I think that when I move to authentic material I'll feel more inspired to write. Since I'll have already written about daily life events in French and Norwegian, there's not much left to write in Georgian

It's strange how the dialogues at the Continuing Course are much longer than the texts at the Newspaper Reader and they lack translation, yet they seem much easier than the news. They have a context and that helps a lot. Even so, now after 30 lessons of the newspaper reader, with only 10 to go, I feel that I'm getting used to word order in the Georgian news. I'm going to try reading an actual article again, once I'm done with the textbook.

It was quite hard to read 10 pages in a row. I have to get used. Still having trouble with pluperfect and perfect forms, those are the ones I'm the least familiarized with and the ones I sometimes don't get Google Translator to translate. As for the participles, translate.ge is more efficient in translating them as plain nouns/adjectives.

A poll I saw at Radio Tavisupleba's website which I was able to understand =D

თქვენი აზრით, ახალმა მთავრობამ რომელ სფეროს უნდა მიანიჭოს პრიორიტეტი?

- ადამიანის უფლებები
- ეკონომიკის განვითარება
- რუსეთთან ურთიერთობის მოგვარება
- საქართველოს ინტეგრაცია ევროატლანტიკურ სტრუქტურებში
- სოციალური პრობლემები
- ტერიტორიული მთლიანობის აღდგენა
- მიჭირს პასუხის გაცემა
