As my study efforts in 2013 will form part of the team's "output", I will reveal in brief my plans for studying Slovak.

Despite my apparent leadership of this team, I don't expect to focus on Slovak to the same degree as other languages (Finnish has the highest priority). It certainly seems that other people (e.g. Lapislazuli, Theodisce, nuriayasmin70) will work harder on Czech than I will on Slovak.

My idea for Slovak in 2013 is that I'll slowly work through "Hovorme spolu po slovensky "B" Slovenčina ako cudzí jazyk". In practical terms, I'm setting a goal where I am to complete the exercises or readings of 3-5 pages from the textbook or exercise book every week regardless of the breaks in the chapters. On one hand I should work harder on the language since I admit to being stung a little bit by the comments of a Slovak friend after she made a comment that my skill has slipped since the time when we first met about a year ago. In her estimation, then I was nearly fluent in Slovak, but now I'm a lot rustier. However, I've just felt more enthralled by working on Finnish and to a lesser degree in Ukrainian (probably because I'm attending classes). Studying slovak has unfortunately got little attention in several months.

My plan for 2012 was to involve working with "Hovorme spolu po slovensky "B" Slovenčina ako cudzí jazyk (textbooks & CDs) but without a clear idea about frequency. I broke from this goal because Slovak got crowded out by all of the other languages that I had set out to study. By setting a low but steady goal for Slovak in 2013, I believe that I have a much better chance to refresh and make at least some progress in improving my Slovak.


Since this has been posted I've partially stayed on track to attain these goals. Starting in October, I got frustrated by the nature of some of the exercises in "Hovorme spolu po slovensky "B" Slovenčina ako cudzí jazyk" and since then have been slowly building my passive knowledge of prefixed verbs by making a list of such verbs by consulting dictionaries.

My plans in 2014 for Slovak are described in the thread for *jäŋe/*ledús

I am thinking about going to China next Summer, which means I will be focusing mainly on Mandarin for the first half of the year. I will certainly be carrying on with my Czech, but I'm not sure I'll be keeping a log. I found it too time consuming and preferred to spend the time on actually study. All the best to my fellow team members in their language endeavours for 2014.
