Merci, et bon courage !

I've succeeded in my short-term personal goals, definitely—I can function independently
in French, with varying degrees of success. But I must confess, I'm still waiting
anxiously for my DELF B2 results, which I'm now told should arrive early next week.

This really shouldn't bug me—I passed a couple of practice tests with a perfectly good
score the week before the exam. But I know that I bombed the longer listening
comprehension section, thanks to an unusually difficult recording and a noisy exam
room. My listening comprehension, in any case, is my least reliable skill—sometimes
it's quite decent and other times it's pathetic.

The trick is not to get demoralized by all the ups and downs, but to keep enjoying
French. You can see how different ployglots have evolved strategies for coping with the
bad days—khatzumoto always focuses what he can do, not what he can't, and Benny
Lewis has this invicible self-centered optimism.

Parfois, j'ai peur que je n'étudie pas le moyen égyptien, mais plutôt l'ornithologie
égyptienne. Il y a un tas de hiéroglyphes avec une image d'un oiseaux.

Je n'ai appris que trente hiéroglyphes, et il y en avait déjà cinque :



1. un vautour égyptien,
2. un poussin de caille,
3. une chouette,
4. un jabiru, et
5. un canard en plein vol.

J'étais surpris par la clarté des hiéroglyphes. Chacun d'eux correspond très bien à
l'oiseau.

Néanmoins, les oiseaux sont difficile à dessiner. Bien qu'ils soient mignons, je
préférais en avoir moins. Je ne suis pas encore fort en ornithologie. :-)

Jusqu'à présent, Anki marche très bien pour apprendre les hiéroglyphes. Je révise entre
7 et 12 cartes par jour, y compris trois nouveau hiéroglyphes.

Vous utilisez l'Assimil pour apprendre l'égyptien hiéroglyphique? Qu'est-ce que vous
pensez de ce livre? L’égyptien est pas mon forte, mais, s'il y a un possibilité de jouer
avec les symboles un peu, peut-être que j'achète ce livre aussi.

J'attends la méthode d'Assimil, qui est en route d'Amazon.fr. Je ne l'ai pas vu, mais
tout le monde dit qu'elle est très bonne.

J'ai fait un paquet de cartes sur Anki avec 200 hiéroglyphes de base. Est-ce que vous le
voulez ? Envoyez-moi un message privé avec ton adresse et je vais vous l'envoyer. Il est
encore un peut compliqué, mais il marche.

Je pense que les hiéroglyphes sont vraiment plus faciles que les caractères chinois. Il y
en a beaucoup moins, et ils sont plus faciles à apprendre, grâce à les images très vives.

You've probably forgotten all about it as it was in April, but I too saw Intouchables
recently. Boy, movies are really tough still. The kind of longer sustained speech that
you get in a speech, an audiobook etc I do fairly well, but with short lines I almost
can't hear anything.

I am joining that club (trying to snuggle a girl at the same time wasn't helping the
cause).
