week one review

Hello everyone!

So the end of last week and most of this week have been rather busy and stressful for me, so I made the executive decision to put off starting chapter two until Monday. This is OK, because it gives me a little more time to read and re-read the materials from chapter one.

I'm actually pretty impressed by how quickly it is all coming back to me! My biggest problem is that my penmanship isn't nearly as neat as it was, so I know I have to be extra careful not to get sloppy.

I hope you all are having a great week and i'll see you at the end of chapter two!

working my way back

Hello everyone!

Wow, it's been ages hasn't it? Sorry about that, I started having a bit of difficulty keeping all the forms in line, and then I realized that I was putting more energy into learning Esperanto than focusing on shorthand so I decided to take a break from the shorthand while I focused on Esperanto.

Well I finished the Duoling Esperanto tree in about 6 months, and then did a bunch of other stuff, but I just never got around to coming back to my shorthand, I just kept putting it off :(

But now the New Year is upon us and I'm ready to buckle down again! I've re-worked what materials I'm using and my methodologies a bit, and I've made up a new intensive 12 week course (see tab above) which I plan on following up to at least chapter 6, since most of that will be review. (Last time I stalled out around chapter 7) and then I'll probably move back into the slower one unit a week schedule until the end (see 48 week syllabus tab above)

I'm going to try and make at least one post a week talking about my progress, so I hope I'll see you around!

still here

Hello, sorry about the big gap in posting there.  I've been bitten by the spring cleaning bug, And while I have been doing my studies, I haven't been putting as much effort into finding good quotes or things to post, and most of the things I did find had diphthongs or blends.

But I started Chapter 5 this week, which means I can do diphthongs now!
