Full Month Goal Achieved! [Jun. 1st, 2011|08:16 pm]
Really Learn Polish (this time)



...been going 6 weeks on this learning streak now - I started about two weeks to the end of a month, and consider that was kind of a practise couple of weeks, and then finished the first FULL month yesterday. I had to do extra over the last few days to reach my goals, but got to 100% on all of them. I divide the month into weeks, but most months have more than 28 days of course, so the last "week" has a few extra days in it that helps you catch up on your goals for the month.

The goals for April (a bit less than two weeks of) and May were as follows
(weekly and monthly are May's goals, April+May is the combined monthly from April and May)

  Number Minutes
Goals Anki Reading Listening Bookwork
Weekly 175 7750 400 350
Monthly 700 31000 1600 1400
April+May 980 31200 2320 1580

So "anki" is sentences I learn in the SSR program Anki, plus I decided that words on flashcards counted so that I could do some learning while walking to work, etc.
"Reading" is any reading by number of words, the bulk of which is extensive reading of harry potter along to the audio book, which I don't understand most of. Also, I get some from my polish learning books, and some intensive reading of fairy tales.
"Listening" is any listening - podcasts, harry potter, music, etc
"Bookwork" is my "hurra po polsku" bookwork, and I also decided that reading about Polish grammar and reading other polish learning books counted.

The totals acheived for april + may were

April + May 980 35093 2321.75 1580


I am waiting on some DVDs from Merlin.pl that I hope get here soon; they will count as "listening" and should be fun. I might make a separate movies goal, but not sure about that.

Now I start on the next month!
