Hello,

This week I think I will focus on only one lesson per week to study. I am going to really
study lesson five this week and I might find time to finish up lesson 7. But that's not my
goal at the moment. The thing is that as I look at lesson five I know that this is where I
need to not rush because it's only going to get more intense from here. The last two lesson
where good but now the real work begins.

Hola,

I went to the library today and their Spanish program is still not in. But I think I might
know what it is. Oxford take off in Spanish. Why I think that is because they have two other
in the series Italian and Japanese. I went to Amazon and looked at it and I don't have the
money to get it at the moment but it's on my wish list. The reason why I want it is it told me
the different between Tu and Usted!

Hello,

Okay so today I was looking at someone log and Keith gave me a good idea. Before I tell you
let me post what he wrote in his log.

"I want to concentrate on one sentence at a time. In each new sentence I could learn maybe
two new words. So, I've decided to go back to the FSI material and create my own study
method from it. So I've started going through it, beginning with Module 1 and taking a
sentence a saving it by itself. This way, by looping one sentence, I can really concentrate
on a little bit. I focus on the new words, absorb the sound and intonation of the sentence,
and observe the pattern. One sentence is usually about one second long, so I listen to it
100 times. Of course, it still takes some time to find the sentences and then save them. So
far, I have 40 sentences consisting of 50 different words."

Well I am going through the rest of Keith logs and found this quote from him:

"This post marks the beginning of my training with Assimil. I did one hour on lesson 1. I
spent 15 minutes at a time on it. I have the lessons edited down to just the dialogue and
the spaces removed. So my lesson one is 15 seconds. I was able to loop through that 250
times."

Now I went back to my lesson 1 and really looked at it then now I am really studying lesson
1 like Keith did with his Chinese. So thanks Keith for making a log and telling everyone how
you are going to study.

Now that I showed you what he wrote I think I will go back and really work on my
pronunciation because if I want to learn speaking and listening is very important just like
reading and understanding is. So I went to one of my sites that I haven't been too in a
while. It's http://forvo.com/. It help with words so you can
pronounce words. This will help me in my Spanish a lot they have native speakers say the
words for you. Very convenient if you ask me. That's all for now.

Un Beso

Hello,

I took off the weekend for language learning because I think I have been doing a lot the last
two weeks. I review lesson 1 this morning and listen to lesson 2 for 15 minutes today. I even
spoke with the record for five out of the 15 minutes. I like doing that. That is what I will
be doing from now on. I will do lesson 3 tomorrow. Fifteen minutes but I will review the other
lessons before I start the new lesson. I know I have only put 7 lesson into lingq but I'm okay
with that. I am taking my time with this and I am excited about the way I am learning Spanish.
I am still doing Duo but just 30 pts a day nothing to big. I will start taking the weekends
off because I don't need to do language learning 7 days a week it's just too much.

Un beso

Hello,

So I want to start dabbing in Reading in Spanish and so I did the first chapter of Mi Amor de
Wattpad. I think I need more work it that department because I like the idea of reading in
Spanish but I don't think I can handle it at this moment. It's very sad to me because I really
want to do this reading in Spanish to learn more vocab but my understanding of Spanish right
now is very low. I will keep plugin away at me learning the language then trying to read it at
the moment. I just wish I could do both and be happy.

Hello,

This past week I finish my Duolingo Spanish Tree it took me four years on and off but I
finally finish it. Now that I did that I think I will take some time off. That was one of my
goals this year and now that I have finished the tree I can reflect on it.
