I always knew you were crazy, and now your thread title proves it. If it's written on the
internet you know you can trust it because the internet was invented by Al Gore.

Since you are such a steady worker, it might help you to put in brackets an estimate of the number of study
sessions you think each course will take you (based on past experience with similar courses).


Al Gore is my hero. He's so trustworthy. I like him like I like Brie stepped on into the mud on a rainy day and
served up like there's nothing wrong with it.

I'm not willing to work out how long each course could take me because there are too many variables and I
don't want to face the reality of my insanity ;)

If you complete all those in the next 10 years i'd be very proud!

Written like that, the 1000 metre hill sure does look like a mountain, from what you've
completed so far you've done thousands of steps.

im very impressed at how many hours of study you have completed

Bonne chance cette année

One of the challenges I often face is spending my time on my weakest points.

For instance, I'm currently reviewing FSI Basic French. I know I should do the unit on numbers more, but that just remains a feeling for "later".

On the other hand, I spend some time writing out FWT and NFWE dialogues and the lessons I've done so far have no more words to learn, just a few grammatical marks to get right, etc.

So, the challenges is to find ways to combine fun stuff with other things that fill in the my major gaps.

Wow, pretty crazy on the courses but you will be the authority on French self-learning courses. I hope you're keeping notes on all of them so you're ready to copy/paste your reviews and suggestions for newbies asking about French ALL over the internet.

For now I'm doing the silly thing of not working on weak points but just soldier on through each and every
exercise in my courses. This way I'm surely going to cover weak points at some stage

Woah that list of courses gives me heart palpitations! But I'm seriously impressed with
your self-discipline and your ability to juggle real life with being a French ninja. They
think you are crazy now but one day you will be crazy AND speak amazing French. And
everyone knows that French makes everything sound better, even insanity.
