It’s time for an update on my ultra-slow Assimil German project.
As you may recall, I decided to spend ten minutes a day learning German using the Assimil German course, and see where it took me.
As you may also recall, I have also been spending a significant amount of time on painting, putting up fences (still to be done) and general maintaining of the fabric of the house. In my defence, there isn’t a lot else to do in the UK what with the pubs, bars, restaurants, cinemas and shops being closed and travel more or less impossible. In short, I have turned into a DIY bore which isn’t something that I ever anticipated.
Strangely perhaps, this has meant that the ultra slow language learning project has slowed further.
Slowed but not stopped.
The pleasing thing is that it turns out that this method of learning another language (and over learning a small amount of information) really suits me, and you can read about it here if you are so inclined.
Festina lente has for me never been so apt.
And finally the update which you have been waiting for :-
Words known. 93
Lesson reached. 8

Besos, baci and pax.
