TAC 2019 - Salajane (Austronesian)

Postby aaakknu » 2019-01-01, 22:06

Well, I'm not even sure why I'm creating this again, despite the fact that all of my previous attempts were failures. :)
But I'll try once more.
I'll focus on Austonesian languages this time, since I really like them and who knows maybe I'll be writing my master's thesis on something Austronesian (I'd like to, but it depends on where I'll study).

(id) Indonesian
This one will be my main focus. I intend to get to B1-B2.

Dabbling: Tagalog, Hawaian etc. It would be cool to read something on Proto-Austronesian also.

This year will be divided into two parts:

January-June: casual learning; Indonesian only; update once a month.
June-December: intensive learning; Indonesian + some other languages; update once a week.

I won't be able to learn much Indonesian or any other language before I graduate. Chances are that I won't be able to learn anything (or almost anything) at all outside of university. I feel quite depressed and frustrated often and it makes it difficult to study. As soon as I graduate, I'll feel much better and i'm actually planning to take a gap year or two.

Happy New year to everybody!

Do you feel depressed because of university? Why?

Happy New year to everybody!

Yes, it was because of university. Sorry, I didn't want to answer then, didn't want to share my problems on an internet forum.

I have finished university, so everything is ok now. :)

As I expected, I didn't study languages during this time.
Too much stress with university, exams and so on.

Anyway, I have some good news.
1. I have graduated!
2. I had my first poem translation published.
3. I'm going to CreteLing. (Is there anybody else going?)
4. I'm going to Indonesia in the end of August.

So my plans for the near future are:
1. Review what I learned about linguistics so far and read the articles on the school website for the courses I am going to take.
2. After the school, I am going to focus intensively on Indonesian, I want to learn as much as I can before I go there. Honestly, I think I won't study any other languages this year except Indonesian, I want to make the most of my time in Indonesia.

Wow, congratulations and enjoy your stay in Crete and Indonesia! (And of course I'm always up for the Indonesian study group if you're interested).

Hi!)

CreteLing was amazing! I was taking three classes: intermediate semantics, intermediate syntax and metrical phonology. I especially liked the semantics class.

I have already got my Indonesian visa and am preparing for my trip. The person from embassy have given me a theoretical grammar of Indonesian textbook (in Ukrainian). I have read a couple of pages there.

So, I have been in Indonesia since 29th of August, and I've already had some practice. My vocabulary is veery limited, so I can barely say anything without a dictionary. But I hope I will improve fast here)
My Indonesian language classes should start on 23rd of September, until then I will just try to practise as much as I can and read the books I've got.

Thanks!

(abs) Ambonese
I've learned some basic words today, will post them later.

(htu) Hitu
I have "Kamus dwibahasa Hitu Indonesia" (80 pages)
and "Kekerabatan bahasa Hitu dan bahasa Luhu" (60 pages)
Plan to learn from there and maybe visit the village later.

(tlu) Tulehu
Have "Fungsi dan bentuk kelas kata bahasa Tulehu"

(abs) Alune
1. Kamus dwibahasa Alune Indonesia
2. Kamus percakapan bahasa Alune
It's spoken on the Seram island, so I will need to take a ferry to get there. (We'll see)

I also have "Bahasa negara dan bahasa daerah di provinsi Maluku". It has lots of articles, but I didn't look into it yet because my Indonesian is not so advanced.

Firstly I should improve my Indonesian, of course. :)

Yes.

Thanks!

So, I finished the test and just returned home.
The test had 30 multiple choice questions, a written composition of 100 words and a short interview.
It was hard for me, but the spoken part was a bit easier, I think.
We will receive the results tomorrow.
