This past week I didn’t do much language study again. I had my Spanish class last week Monday, which I believe I mentioned in last week’s MLJ update. Apart from that, I mostly used French, Spanish, or Portuguese whenever I could with friends via text, Facebook, Whatsapp, Hangouts, or Skype.
My apologies that this is a day late.
I didn’t do as much language study as I would’ve liked to last week. The languages I worked on were Albanian, Portuguese, French, and a little bit of Albanian and Japanese.
I’m reminded of the Staind song It’s Been Awhile.
But it has been about 2 months since my last update. Perhaps that’s the pace I will always post at – every few months or so. I might as well accept it instead of trying to post more frequently.
I’m going to post corrected versions of the previous day’s texts, both as a way for me to be able to compare what I wrote against the correct form, and for those reading my blog who are also learning French, Spanish, and/or Portuguese. If you are reading this as your first post, you should read this post first.
Today, October 2, 2014, shall be day one of the #100DaysofLanguageLearning challenge. I will try to write a few sentences in each language I’ve chosen – French, Spanish, and Portuguese. I will also try to write something different in each language, as opposed to translating the same text into all there languages.
For example, tonight I have written about my language study activities this evening, as well as my plans for tomorrow. I have broken this up between the three languages.
A fellow blogger and, as it turns out, Unilanger (the denonym for a member of UniLang) who recently started following my blog invited me to take the #100DaysofLanguageLearning challenge. The challenge may be named differently, but that is the name I’ve chosen to call it.
I want to write a little bit about each language that I’m currently studying. This was influenced by a forum I recently became active in. It’s called UniLang. It’s a site and forum for language learners. Many of the forum regulars are those who have a desire to learn multiple languages. There are also sections of the site where you can find learning resources for different languages.
I came across a thread in the forum called Languages Learner Level. I was going to post in that thread a detailed description of each language I’m learning – the level I’m at and a blurb about my learning thus far. But I decided to post it here instead; at least the blurb about each language! Here goes:
