The end of the year is nigh and I thought I would look at my goals from the beginning of the year. (copied from HTLAL) Well I didn't really hit this goal but I've still made allot of progress in this direction. I broke out of the prescribed pattern more than once. I have good days when everything is clear. I don't have to worry about the Spanish comprehension, because apparently, whenever I have one, I have the other. (weird no?) Acts was more of a hurdle than I anticipated, so I didn't get this one, but I'm through it now, which means I'm still more than half way through the whole thing. nailed it Well, not much done with this but I do have a limited reading ability now. LRing first before even being able to read somewhat fluently seems like a bad idea in hindsight Had allot more success with this than I expected. Thank you Spanish. I can recommend this course, although it's probably got more detail than is helpful. Don't use the Portuguese for Spanish speakers! Not calling my name anymore. I was able to read through this material, but working on listening to the audio was just too much of a time sink. I've never really had to deal with a foreign language with so many different vowels This one's shelved indefinitely.
