Mission Acquisition: May Language Goals

May 12, 2016

Alright so first thing’s first, I failed spectacularly for the month of April.


Between work and more work and a little work on the top I was just totally exhausted and not at all able to keep up with my goals. I did manage to get 90+ on one of my homework assignments for Korean class, though. I scored some delicious coffee that I can’t even drink because I don’t have a coffee maker right now. Double fail. Fail and a half? My goals were also kind of ridamndiculously ambitious. I already knew this but I was really hoping I’d be able to at least get close. This month I’m scaling back.

My goals for Korean:

  • Finish the homework every week. This means doing homework while eating lunch some days.
  • Complete chapter 4 in Ehwa and Integrated Korean. I still have not done this and I need to move forward in these books.
  • Work through the first chapter of my new grammar book. This will also give me a chance to practice my German at the same time. Woohoo!
  • Mango languages: Korean. I have never used mango languages before but I want to use it for Korean to test it out before I start Greek in a few months.
  • Start gathering TOPIK testing example material. I plan to take the TOPIK here in Chicago next April.

My goals for German:

  • Get back into Italki classes. I have one class left in my bundle and I sorta put them on pause because of work/life unbalance. I have to start making the time for at least once a week classes again. Also, I miss my teacher, she’s awesome.
  • Work through first chapter of my new textbook. I bought a textbook in Berlin while I was at the conference. It’s for the C1 level. I truly do want to be taking the C1 exam by the end of next year.
  • Mosalingua: I’m hoping to use the app to learn or reinforce vocabulary so that I’m not speaking like a 3-year-old child.

My goals for….*drumroll*….French! Yep, I’m officially giving French another go:

  • Mosalingua: I’ve started on it for French and so far I like what I’m seeing. It will especially help me with vocabulary.
  • Mango Languages: I think this will help more with grammar as there looks to be more of a conversation type structure. I’ll be testing it along with Korean.
  • Duolingo: I have a love/hate relationship with Duolingo. I’m going to pick back up on French, though. If anything just to see how far I can get through the tree without having to get a textbook.
  • I’m not sure how far I’m going to go with French, to be honest. I believe I’ll just attempt to A2 at the very least and see how I feel from there. I just feel so left out not knowing it!

So, that’s it for this month. Being at the conference has given me such a motivational boost and I’m ready to buckle down and get shit done. Although being there also added like 5 languages to my list as well so, gotta get started!
