Language Targets for 2018!
22:31 GMT 31/12/17
Wow, I've been here for about 8 months I'd say, and the results are amazing.
I have become an Intermediate in the Russian language, and am close to mastering the hardest cases! I have learned a decent amount of German, and I can muster a decent conversation. In the last 4 days I have found a new love for American culture, so am learning Spanish so I can further communicate with America's Spanish Population!
My Targets are too:
Learn Russian to fluency and take my GCSE.
Learn German to fluency and take my GCSE.
Learn Spainish to an Intermediate level and eventually take my GCSE.
I know it's a long shot, but I can do it!
Das ist ausgezeichnet und отлично! (Excellent!) Lots of luck to you in your studies and the GCSE (but with your attitude, I think your hard work is going to suffice and you won't really need the luck - so just consider this as me sending you some good vibes).
For me, right now my main goal is to get all the way through the German tree by the end of January 2018, then work to make it golden by mid-year, with regular "time outs" to do things like listen to ndr.de/info, read dw.com or magazines from one of my favorite bookstores downtown, or watch ard.de or zdf.de in order to try to get a better feel for the language, the culture, and Europe in general.
After that, I'm thinking about dabbling in Japanese, just to try something different. I learned some Russian давным давно (long, long ago) in college but never did learn how to type it (we wrote long-hand back then); there are lots of Russian speakers around to keep me in verbal practice though.
My goals for this year are:
- Learning Slovenian to a level that I can communicate on a basic level this summer when I'm going to Slovenia for holiday
- Improve my Czech, no specific goals, maybe finally finish the tree
And of course to improve my other languages (Norwegian, Italian) as well, by immersing in the language online (reading newspapers, listening to radio). :)
Ok, I'll play too:
(Outside duolingo) Get the official CAE in english, finally.
Get the level 25 in Italian and French courses (for spanish and english speakers, respectively).
Get a conversational level in French (with a B1 I would be so happy).
(Outside duolingo) Unofficially or officially, get the C1 in Italian.
Get level 20 in Portuguese (for english speakers).
Get level 15 in Polish and German (for english speakers).
Play around with languages such as Korean or Swedish, but nothing serious.
And the hard one: practice everyday!!
