Top 10 at Memrise

Guess who was studying too many languages all at once.

I went home today and boy, I’m so restless. I didn’t get to study Spanish yesterday but I did get to review some Turkish, a bit of persian, a bit of arabic alphabet (which I already know but have to go through) and a bit of vietnamese alphabet.

Today I started studying 2 Chinese songs which will probably take a while to study, I got distracted by Welsh so I reviewed a bit of it (Greetings 1, 2 and Days @duolingo).

…I’m still restless but I guess I should sleep…

Or not.

I found out that my almost-crush is a Salmon (Capricorn Horse).
It means we’re 94% compatible—or so the site says.

Learn Language Online for Free: Duolingo vs Memrise

I am currently learning a total of 14 languages from Duolingo and Memrise combined…I’m still a beginner at most languages since the amount I studied varies depending on my mood. Anyway, you can check out both apps/sites on our own but if you need a guide, here’s a little comparison between the two.

Duolingo Pros:
-structured learning
-a lot of exercise and vocabulary
Duolingo Cons: 

-exercises might be too overwhelming if you’re not in the mood
-it will take time for you to sound like you know the language (since it’s topic based)
-reviewing is optional (strength bars decrease)

Memrise Pros:
-has more languages offered than Duolingo (although most are “unofficial”)
-varied speakers which will help your listening skills
-teaches you useful expressions so you sound like you know more than you actually do
-has other helpful lessons like vocabularies which will greatly help in your language learning
-reviews you as you learn so you’re sure not to forget things
Memrise Cons:
-“slow” in case you want the fundamentals down all at once
-some lessons or features will tempt you to go pro (at a reasonable price)

 

[Spanish I] 8 out of 17 Chapters, Done. Recommended Book for Spanish Learners.

I thought this book only had 15 chapters…

Day’s up and I only got to study a chapter. I should make up to it by studying 2 chapters tomorrow. 

I highly recommend this book for learners of Spanish. It gives a good breakdown of the grammar and syntax. I think it’s good to start with this, while studying Spanish at Memrise and/or Duolingo or with a Spanish learning book. The thing with most language learning materials is that… the vocabulary might be overwhelming. I myself am bad with memorization. 

I plan on either finishing the whole book before making reviewers like I did in Latin class, or making one while I’m at it. 

Of course, after that I would be studying songs or practicing making my own sentences—or both, while I study at Memrise and Duolingo. Both sites are for free btw. 

Merry…25th.

I do not really observe Christmas but I decided to not fight with people on its origins and Christ’s actual date of birth… and greet everyone who greeted me.

Oddly drew something after months of not doing so.

 

It was supposed to be @habinnny (IG) of the Korean group, Offroad but I can’t draw so nvm. 

Saturn returned to Taurus last December 19. It’s said to help Tauruses follow through plans…I could feel it. 

Well, I’m determined more than ever mainly because I’ve “wasted” 7 years in college and 4 from highschool. It would all be a waste if I stop now… but I won’t be young forever. 
Anyway at the moment, I am listening to a russian somg while studying spanish. I’m stuck with adjectives…

one of the examples were:

“el mal problema”

but is there even a “buen problema”?!  

I hope my brain permits me to finish studying adjectives tonight. Wish me luck! 

Uncertainty + Latin Grades

Hey guys! Latin 10 Class grades just came out and I got a 2.5! In the Philippines, 1 is the highest with 3 as the passing grade.

I actually missed a lot of class which is why my professor said he’d expect a 3 from me although I might get a 4 (there is a need to retake the test or class). I studied so hard for the exam even if it was all pointless given the university would be kicking me out anyway… 

I actually got the 2nd highest score in the final exam which makes me REALLY HAPPY and accomplished. The person who got a higher score than me took 2 years of Latin yet I was just 6 points behind him hehe. 

Nevertheless, I’m 95% certain that the school won’t let me continue to stay in the university… I’d have to transfer and start all over again and spending 11 years in college is… such an exhausting experience.

Moreover, my dad might not be able to support me until graduation–it might be better to just work. Afterall I’ve already spent 6 years in college. 

Uncertainty aside, I’ve been studying Cliffs Quick Review for Spanish I. I just finished reading til Chapter 6.

My life seems to be going nowhere but I’d feel more lost without doing anything.
