Language badges and French
Hello everyone! If you look on the sidebar, you can see that I've put some badges from LingQ up that display the amount of words I know in a few languages according to their website (note: The word count is quite an overestimate: for example, in the English count, "like" and "likes" are counted as two separate words). It updates as I'm working in LingQ, too, so you can see the latest count simply by heading to any page of this blog. I'm proud to announce that over the weekend I reached my goal of 150 known words in Esperanto on LingQ by March 24th!
· Completed: Reach 150 known words in Esperanto on LingQ by March 24th, 2012! (March 15th, 2012 - March 24th, 2012)
And to that effect, I have some important news: Because this semester at my university has only a month left to go, and because I'm currently in French class, I have chosen to switch my targeted language temporarily over from Esperanto to French. This is to maximize on the advantage of taking French both at university and having exposure to it during personal study. Both methods combined are quite powerful, though of course I prefer the do-it-yourself form.
My new goal is to converse in French with a new friend and reach 300 known words in French on LingQ by March 31st, 2012!
