English: My own work

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…
