…too bad this computer can’t read Korean characters most of the time.

I actually haven’t studied much Japanese or Korean these days, which I should…. I also started getting back with my Chinese studies ha ha.

Extremely Useful Apps for Learning German

So, lately I’ve been taking German (in Duolingo) seriously. Or so I say…
I learned how to add friends in Duolingo so I’m kind of feeling competitive—if they’re studying, so should I.

I still have a long way to go, of course.

Useful Apps for Learning German:
Duolingo
-This is for beginners who don’t want to be intimidated by everything. It’s good for familiarizing yourself. If you’re on the computer, they usually give charts or notes during each lesson. I’d advice you to look up charts with all the declension and conjugation to make your life easier, and your German learning journey, faster.

German Grammar In Use.
-I haven’t seen other grammar pdfs, but this one is a very handy grammar app. Definitely beats googling and getting overwhelmed from all the Grammar.

DeutschLernen
-Definitely one of the best apps. It has short news articles with a recorded podcast. Best for vocabulary enhancement and listening skill training. The app has really good interface. It also has a vocabulary list at the end.

Articles I plan on Studying:
Was tun mit dem Wolf?
Attraktion Pinguine
Wie Flüchtlingskinder unter Erinnerungen leiden
App hilft gegen Verschwendung von Essen
Bangladesch: sicherere Arbeit, geringer Lohn
Kaum Kontrolle bei Werbung im Internet
Der Osterhase bringt die Eier
Mit dem Fahrrad ins Büro?
Mörder hinterm Steuer?
Ohne Kohle geht’s noch nicht

German Grammar (50,000+ Test Questions)
-This is a very good app, but it’s definitely not for beginners–including me.

Hello, August.

Hey everyone! I’m not sure who exactly I’m addressing this to, but anyway I am back from inactivity! I sure plan on being active here, to track my progress and also, of course to push my lazy self to study.

I have already registered for the 54th TOPIK that’ll be happening October 22nd.

I also have plans of taking the JLPT N3. From nothing to N3, so I can feel…fired up. Ha-ha.

Anyway today, I apparently chose the wrong computer to work on but, I’ve studied a bit of French. Or reviewed. When will I ever move forward? We will never know.

Progress so far as of 080517
French. Duolingo: (Basics 1) Basics 2, Phrases

I was going to compile things for jlpt but unfortunately, this computer can’t read japanese characters 😐

Goals for 2017:
TOPIK Level 4
JLPT N3 (watch me fail idk)
Catch up on other languages I’m studying @ duolingo, memrise

022317 오늘은 일일이다. 

Starting today I vow to study languages everyday. 

POLISH. I checked out declensions for general pronouns. There is no way I could absorb all of those information without actually studying them but I took down notes for future reference. Other pronouns will have to wait as declensions overwhelm me. 

mówisz dzień dobry i dobranoc, the day is done and you’ve come to find…

I might continue studying a bit of Polish or something else… or just sleep altogether. I’m actually too sleepy for anything 근데 지금 너무 더워서 잠들기 힘들어요.  

Ich brauche dich, HiNative.

Today I installed “HiNative” which is pretty much the Best App Ever jk. It’s a triple tie with Duolingo and Memrise. I haven’t been using Memrise for the past few days due to the fact that I’ve been focused more with German @duolingo. 

Anyway, I highly recommend HiNative for language learners who have questions like the usual “how do you say” or asking if your sentences are natural or any question, really. 

Pursuing Latin? I want to be a Latin teacher! 

HOW TO BE A LATIN TEACHER?

I saw a guide online and I am leaving it here on my blog so I can get back to it easily. 

The feeling has passed, but 3 days ago, I finally checked my grades and I got MY VERY FIRST UNO in my entire 6-year stay in UP so far. 


The feeling has passed due to the fact that the truth about me being unable to remember most of what I studied has sunk. I might have gotten a 1 but will I remember all that I’ve learned?

Today in my interviews, I was asked about my career plans. We only have one person in the Latin department of our school and I would like to be the next Latin teacher. Of course this means graduating–which I should. 

Anyway, I am keen on this whole Latin retention and I will definitely finish our book and learn the classics slowly. 

Hello, 2017


Spent my new year with TV5’s #GameTayoSa2017 New Year Countdown. As an introvert, a concert ground–moshpit would probably be the last place you’d see me but I went there for Offroad (A Korean boygroup). It was really tiring but it was worth seeing them that close, and seeing them happy to see Oasis.


(My eyes were glued on Daewon though).

I spent the first day of 2017 with my friend, then my relatives. 

Day 2 was productive–I studied Norwegian for a bit and bonded with my cousins. 


Day 3 was a sudden family day. Skated for the first time in almost a year, I think. Last night, I learned the difference between a lose shoe and tight laces. I thought it was slippery due to the water  but it wasn’t at all with my blades perpendicular to the ice. My legs are still tired from all the tension due to my fear of falling.

 After that, we ate at this Japanese restaurant which mom suggested. 

For today, I should review or study and be productive to ward off any possible anxiety. 

2017 is a year of change. I’m letting go of almost everything from 2016 and the years prior to it.
