I’m finding myself doing better and better.
I know I still need a lot more vocabulary, but this book has been a good starting point for me.
I’ll be quite proud of myself If I finish the book tomorrow. I have about 7 pages left. It’s doable, but I think that Friday is more practical depending on how busy I am tomorrow.
I’m wicked looking forward to the grammar book. The example sentences are not translated either. So it will take some more time, but the vocabulary isn’t out of my reach. Maybe there will be a word that I don’t know every 5th sentence or so. The main focus is on the grammar point.
The thing is there are like 5 or 6 examples for each grammar point, so there will be lots of practice. There is a simple explanation and a detailed one in the book too. And that is in English, which is nice.
And again, I know that I won’t understand a lot of vocab even after I finish the grammar book.
Again the plan is to do extensive and semi-intensive reading after I finish the grammar book. I don’t really have an estimate for the grammar book, but I don’t want it to take more than 2 months. I should be faster at this. Should I take the time to explicitly translate?
I’m thinking not. Just the words that I don’t know and the grammar point should suffice. If I really get stuck, perhaps I’ll have to explicitly translate the whole thing and throw it in the SRS.
Anyways, that’s all for today. Gotta get some sleep.
