I could also read the poems by Ilia Chavchavadze. Now 2 authors left before Modernism
(though these have rather long texts).

Thanks =D I never really left, I just couldn't study previously.

I'm reading Tschenkéli's book slowly in order to avoid burnout both from the German and
from the grammar content itself. Today I read about the present and how it works for
forming other tenses. I paused before the item on verbal noun because I know its
formation to be complicated and I want to pay full attention to that.

Btw, I'd like to thank Gosiak and hribecek for the acknowledgment the three of us had
at the TAC 2012 thread. And I though only the other Georgian learners would read this
log! I started learning languages actively at the second fortnight of January 2012, and
I had no idea I could join a TAC just by doing what I was doing. So, no TAC for me in
2012, but in 2013 zecchino and I are officially learning Georgian and Russian as part
of the team Mir and we hope we'll keep helping each other with this language so
fascinating but with such a shortage of resources.

If I ever achieve my goals for 2013, I should be thankful to Tschenkéli, wherever he
may be now. His work is a masterpiece, it turns a complex grammar into simple,
contextualized chunks full of logic.

I don't want to sound like a spoiler for zecchino, but when you get to the section on
Akaki Cereteli's poetry at ACC you'll come across some poems that became several
"traditional" Georgian songs, like the beautiful სულიკო/Suliko (you could call it
"almacita" in Spanish, perhaps?" -კო is a tenderness diminutive).

Suliko

I just meant you weren't writing here as much. :D

And thanks for sharing that poem/song! :)

Yw! I just read about the infinitive/masdar and it was great! What seemed so complicated
at Aronson/Hewitt, now leaves me no doubt! Tschenkéli didn't try to cover all
irregularities at once. He tried his best to explain each topic with examples. Now I can
say I now how to form the infinitive, and whenever I'm in doubt, I will rather resort to
this book than to the others.

Tomorrow there will be exercises again. Can't wait for them!

Just came across this new project:

Tatoeba

Everything went well with the exercises for lesson 8 at Tschenkéli's. As for ACC, I've
done the first reading on Modernism.

I'm done with the exercises for Chapter 9 in Tschenkéli's book. I still am not sure
about which motion preffixes to use, but I bet much will come with reading. Today I
decided to write down some exercises from German-Georgian. Needless to say, my active
skills are far behind my passive skills. I do need to practice more.

I start to wonder one thing: some grammar topics are so disconnected that it's been a
long while since I last adressed a few ones. Therefore, even though I didn't stop
studying, what I'm studying now doesn't help me remember what I learned, say, in June.
There are lots of topics of high A1-low A2 that I seem to have forgotten, and I don't
know how to overcome this, maybe with yet another review, now with the Russian
textbooks, that I am to start when I'm done with ACC.

Nowadays I don't really feel like writing anything in Georgian, too much uncertainty.
