Felt like I should do one just to have some records. GERMAN
Learnt it for 11 years
, live in a place where there's a Saxon minority, just got to do it.
Almost every day I'm reading articles from Die Zeit
and I'm writing out all the unknown words in a small notebook to learn them.
My grammar's rusty, but the vocab part
is the one that concerns me.
When I was in high-school there was a competition organised by the German embassy
and I won the 32th place
in the country for writing a poem in German.
As reward one of the things I've got was a book that I want to start to read again.
Only got to the half of it.
Until now I got to the point where I can understand the most of TV news.
The next year an internship at an IT company
and currently I found one that I really do like and where German knowledge would indeed help,
so I'll mainly be focusing on this language. ENGLISH
Been learning it for 8 years
, still hoping that I got to a somewhat decent level.
This year I had to take an English test at my university for Erasmus
and they rated my English knowledge at B2
for the reading/writing part
while at listening and speaking I got C1
Regardless of this, I need to improve it,
especially that in the next semester I'll be learning in Warsaw University
So the first time my grades will really depend on my foreign language knowledge.
I'm currently watching Game of Thrones
, I hope that counts as exercise.
We also have like one or two English channels on TV so maybe I'll also be watching them. SPANISH
The first language I have no real use of, but I like it anyway.
I've been learning it for maybe 4 years
I would put it on the same level as English because at listening I feel more comfortable with it.
And my pronunciation is not so horrible compared to English.
So like a B2
Since it's not a language that I'll be using soon
I'll only try to maintain my current level by watching Game of Thrones
with Spanish subtitles.
I also dropped Portuguese, since Romanian is really enough when it comes to interference.
But Portuguese helped me a bit with understanding Spanish so yay.
Suffers from the same disease as English and German, the lack of vocabulary
Have to work on that. HUNGARIAN
Since it's my mother tongue
, I guess I can say that I've been learning it my whole life.
I can speak it, but that's kind of it.
At school we always learnt literature, maybe a bit about how to write correctly, but not farther.
First I want to learn how vowel harmony
works and also the names of the grammatical cases
Finally I want to learn how it actually works
shall be a good start. ROMANIAN
One of my favourites for many reasons, along the fact that I can actually speak it.
It's a Latin language that's slightly a bit more archaic, and it has a lot of features that I love, for example the definite article that comes attached to the noun's end.
And it's Latin, providing a good base for Spanish and for other Romance languages.
Hopefully I'm going to find out more about it's history and about the way it works.
