Ok people, I'll write shorter next time. I had promised Ogrim an explanation and I'm glad
I made my point.

I'm having main troubles with syntax/word order, so I think it's about the time for
checking a grammar reference like the one Cristina has been reading =D

Norwegian, Chinese, Russian and Georgian. That's an impressive list of languages!
Once I'm "done" with Swedish I want to pick up Norwegian as well and I'm already day
dreaming about Chinese/Russian/Spanish but that's far future. I'll be following your log
to see how you get along with doing them at the same time, might get me more motivated to
do 2 languages next year.

Lycka till/Lykke til!

Thanks, Kez! Some days are better than others. Sometimes I have burnout right after
Russian, usually half an hour of rest and playing games is enough for me to get in the
mood for proceeding to Georgian. When I was workingm there were very few days at which I
couldn't accomplish the schedule up to Norwegian. These 4 languages are different enough
from each other, so, it's like I'm resting when I move on t the next one.

Besides this log, I have one more for Georgia and another for Russian (plus one for
French which is not in the TAC), but I believe the Norwegian one will have the most of
attempts like trying out native materials and writing.

Yeah I can imagine that some days are better than others. Have you already started
reading some Norwegian (children)books? or are you sticking to textbooks?

I'm still at textbooks, I have a long way to go. Ideally, I should be doing textbooks
first then reading a little right after, but my time for Norwegian is the most limited as
it is an extra language I've added to my schedule and I still have 3 others before I go
for it.

Today if things go well I'll be able to study a bit more. I don't even remember at which
lesson I stopped at TY Norwegian =D I guess it was lesson 4.

Oddly enough, at lessons 6 and 7 at TY Norwegian not all dialogues are recorded. Anyway,
I'm glad I'm about to end the first half of the book. The dialogues tell a story and make
more sense than Assimil's.

I'm really glad I could do some Norwegian today. I'm getting more used to the spoken
language, and reading the dialogues isn't much difficult either. Pity that I can't take
the small challenges, no time for that. Norwegian is the only language I'm currently
learning that I could take LanguageSponge's challenges for.

I thought I wouldn't have time for Norwegian today, but here six minutes after noon,
having just finished TYN's lesson 8! About illnesses, but much more interesting dialogues
than the ones I found at Colloquial Chinese 2 on the same subject. I'm getting motivated
about Norwegian, can't wait to start actually using the language. This week I still have
limited access to the computer (limited by my brother, should I say), but when I get back
to work I'm going to try and practice more, maybe some challenges.

Still in love with TY Norwegian's dialogues. Pity that only one or two are recorded per
lesson.

At lesson 9, the main character is working in a shop. She adresses a customer with De. Is
it still the case? In Brazil the main situation where one would expect the highly format
"o senhor/a senhora" is by salespeople to adress customers (especially the horrible
telemarketing salespeople).
