Practice learning a new language.
Duoloingo is a great tool, but there are many others. Pick one and get started!
Lessons at school. I also do a bit of Duolingo everyday!
Tutor and speaking.
Television and bit of conversation.
NOS evening news.
Today, I picked up Dutch leaning after a relatively stale period. To my defense, even though I’ve been productive for most of the time being, my activities didn’t really fit any streak. Instead, they were an effort to make me stick to a routine.
Anyway, I started back from the beginning of the course. It will surely help me get better at the fundamentals while I pick up the pace I lost.
Completed 3 lessons of the “Newcomer - Course 1” course. Reviewed 10 words.
Today I filled two pages worth of new idioms and adjectives, from the likes of all thumbs, lumpish, and a turn of the screw.
I also experimented with some creative writing, and bundled all my previous discoveries in a short text 😄
Today I researched the meaning of whereby, set to, and jump on. Also, it's the first time Grammarly does not find any issue in a submission I wrote. I guess the hard work of updating Streak Club with several paragraphs of text every day is finally paying off.
Till next time, have a good one!
In order to get ready for the English Proficiency examination, I've started pinning down all the new idioms, phrasal verbs, and alike which I come across. Written production has always been my weak spot; it's time to remedy.
Today, I've researched and annotated the meaning of "same old same old", "crack on", "front and center", and "foundational".
Let's hope for the best!
