Hope you found this helpful, and if not then at least interesting! I enjoy making them and it helps me with learning and remembering the words and grammar. If you're interested, I highly recommend creating a wiki and making your own list. Saves a lot of time compared to copying it all into Word! :D

Anyway, hope you enjoy and let me know what you think if you like! :-)

What would be a good way of doing these lists? Should I make a list up to each checkpoint or keep making posts for several skills? :-) Let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts about these kind of posts

I think that up to each checkpoint would be good. Thank you for all your hard work!

I loved the one that was just vocabulary up until the first checkpoint. It would be amazing to have one for each one! Thanks for all of these lists!
