Changing my study schedule again.
I decided I don't need to allocate separate days for Turkish, because Turkish is around me anyway, and I kinda got into the habit of reading more or less regularly. I won't use Anki or anything, I'll just watch, listen, read and speak. (At least in the summer period; perhaps in winter, I'll do something more intensive to increase my vocabulary).
Let's face it, Kurmanji and Zazaki grammars I bought are bad -- too unstructured and amateurish. They were a waste of money. The western grammars (Thackston for Kurmanji and Todd for Zazaki) are much better.
That leaves me with the fairy tales book I bought... ok I'll just try to read it, without making Anki cards. And I'll do Hînker 3 with the Kurmanji Study Group (which is going to be quite slow paced it seems -- do you think we can accelerate it Vijay? I suppose with so many study groups you're taking part in, the answer is 'Nein'
And let's face it #2, even though I have plenty of Kurdish neighbours, I don't have close Kurdish friends (except for one person who's not very willing to speak Kurdish with me -- we speak Turkish all the time), so my speaking abilities will progress very slowly. Perhaps it will take a dozen more years until I speak it well -- so I'll relax and enjoy the process.
Same routine: songs, GLOSS and the Quran. And maybe occasional italki lessons. Seems to work well.How about this light summer schedule then:
Monday and/or Tuesday - Kurdish
Wednesday and/or Thursday - Arabic
Friday-Saturday-Sunday - days off
Actually, let's make this summer schedule even lighter.
Arabic: studying the Quran
Kurdish: following the Kurmanji Study Group
No appointed days. I'll just do it whenever I feel like. And for Turkish and Arabic, I won't need the computer.
