Happy New Year, everyone!

Last year's TAC ended in failure again. I am still stuck on Hindi for reasons having nothing to do with languages, really. I did manage to read parts of language-learning materials for Bulgarian, Modern Greek, Setswana, Northern Sesotho (Sepedi), Xhosa, Zulu, Ancient Greek, Hawaiian, Amoy (or rather Penang/Kuala Lampur) Hokkien, (Urban) Hijazi Arabic, Irish, Levantine (Jordanian?) Arabic, Welsh, Hungarian, Latin, Afrikaans, Polish, Romanian, Finnish, Swedish, Icelandic, and (just now) Ukrainian, though (in roughly that order)!

Anyway, here's my updated TAC list just so I don't have to go back to the old TAC to look at it, I guess:

And I read a few more materials for Croatian, Romani, Vietnamese, and Punjabi, in that order as well. I still haven't done anything about my TAC. :P

And of course, last but not least, I'm moving to Taiwan in less than a month!

Where in Taiwan?

You need to start brushing up on your Formosan languages :P

Well, I'll be going to Taipei for training first, but I won't actually find out where I'll be teaching until the evening of the second day of training, so I don't actually know yet!

I have a feeling I might end up feeling that way. :lol:

I now live in Yuanlin in Central Taiwan, and I still haven't had many opportunities to practice Mandarin Chinese yet because I'm forbidden from using it at work. :( But now I have a long weekend, so maybe if I'm lucky or smart about it, that will help me find a few more opportunities.

Meanwhile, I've finally gone back to doing some Hindi/Urdu as well as some Persian.
