I am going to stop adding new cards to my deck for a while now, or at the very least limit it to just a couple per week; I'll start adding cards again if I notice my vocabulary plateauing. I've noticed I am able to read internet comments without a dictionary and understand most of it (depending on the topic of course), so I think I've come to the point where it'd be more efficient to use extensive activities to acquire vocabulary. I think watching an entire season of a TV show in German would be a good acttivity for me at this point.
Tomorrow I have a tutoring session in German so we'll see how far my speaking has come along, as well.Arabic
I'm going to stop adding Arabic sentences to Anki and just do words. I'll keep the audio going, but finding good sentences to mine is just too hard -- glosbe's sentences are all way to long, bab.la fortunately has shorter ones that are even vocalised but the variety is too small (I have to settle for weird sentences with words that are not high-priority all the time). Since I don't care about producing active skills at the moment my goal should be to just recognise the largest amount of word roots possible to eventually make intensive reading less torturous.
Wow, you're learning Mandarin now?
I'm only just wading in. Slow and steady wins the race.
So far I have 34 cars in my Mandarin deck, all containing sentences drawn from Assimil (along with the audio cut out from Assimil using audacity).
And I, meanwhile, have been getting into Polish and MSA/Lebanese again. I started flipping through Polish Verbs & Essentials of Grammar 4-or-so days ago; I spoke to my functionally-monolingual godmother again today, and she told me (in Polish), "Just a few days ago you could barely speak Polish, and today you're actually trying to speak it correctly! What's up with that?!" I forgot how much I love the language. It competes with Latin in terms of morphological complexity!
Cieszę się, że znowu się uczysz polskiego. Powodzenia!
