Well, I am late to the party on this one! Aaaaaaand I didn’t do a great job on my goals last month (unsurprising, with how lofty they were), but I’m here and ready to do something.
First of all, I hope everyone has had a lovely holiday – however you celebrate or don’t celebrate. There’s snow here now, which is amazing; we’ve not had snow in ages. It also gives me the excuse to stay inside and get some studying done. 😉
I also have some non-Spanish related news: I finally finished Harry Potter und der Orden des Phönix! It’s over 1000 pages long in German (around 900 in Spanish, apparently), so it’s taken me since about the end of August to read it – which while that’s been four months, it’s not too bad, all things considered. I’m halfway through Flammender Zorn (Mockingjay) so I’m going to finish that before I go onto the next Harry Potter.
Spanish-wise, I’ve been making some progress. I’ve done a bit more FSI – but at this point it’s mostly pronunciation drills so it’s booooooooring. I do need to work on Assimil. I’m hoping I’ll get on that – mostly because my Kindle died a few weeks ago (it was an incredibly sad moment) but my aunt had a Kindle Fire she wasn’t using anymore so she gave it to me (which was an amazing moment) and I’ve found that in general, the Kindle Fire is much, much better when it comes to displaying PDFs. I’ve put a lot of my language books on there – and the audio files on my iPod – with the hope that I’ll be much more likely to use them on my commutes next year!
