1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
I’ve been a bit slow on posting for this week as I’m adjusting my study and daily routine for the next few weeks and afterward. So Here’s the blogging schedule for posting on this site for the next two months, at least until November rears its ominous head.
The following days have been selected for regular posting: Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are set aside as break periods to allow for extra study. I’m getting into the juicy details of Hindi grammar and vocabulary this month, and need the practice that these breaks allow. The same will be done when full study time is once again devoted to Bengali and then to Tamil.
I might post briefly on those days, but rarely, at least until the next blogging schedule revision once October’s over.
Thanks for clicking on my site, and as always, in proper Soruggon,
Talotaa frang, talotaa kas, talotaa tranga suulat.
This last week was a blast, and a good sign of things so far. This weekend I complete the first few study units of Bengali while preparing to move forward in that. The parts I’m on mostly deal with phrases, vocabulary, and Bangla‘s ever-graceful script, though there are clues throughout as to how the grammar operates, and that’s a step toward reaching part II of the text once I master the basic writing and practice my penmanship while getting the pronunciation correct for the dialect I’m learning, mostly of West Bengal with a little bit of the Bangladeshi speech mixed in via the other textbook, just in case…
Progress has been burdened by the fact that I’m learning three languages, and my previous inability to devote proper study time for each to allow for reliable learning consolidation. That’s been fixed by the current scheduling of my study periods, up to a month or more for each language before moving on to the next.
Well, here we are, with a new week ahead, and one of glorious opportunity. Thank you all for making posting on this and other sites such a thing of wonder, and, in proper Kai’Siri Soruggon, may you all…
