What does 50% mean? 50% through the program? What is the program called again? I find that with these electronic programs I get really gung ho at the beginning and then peter out when life gets busy. It is impressive that you have stuck with it for quite some time. Are you ready to head to Germany and start using it.?
The %%% is a fluency meter. And the programme is called Duolingo. It's fairly basic, at first. But rapidly you have each segment subsectioned into 5 or 6 with a capstone. And you have to do them sequentially, 1 to 60, or however many is on it. But once you have completed the app keeps flagging the ones you are weakest. And they measure this with your errors, but mostly the time since you last passed that section. Basically it just keeps drumming it in.My last post on this was on the 17th of May. And I got to 50% in the first week in June. But I said to myself I'd not post another progress until I was 51%, over the hump. But it took ages and ages, until early August to get to 51.I now have 2550 words of varying fluency, and about 100 words more than May. The time on this averages about 20 mins a day. Loo time, the time I devoted to Seduku :-).
Has anyone ever commented about the German sounding guy in the loo?
Well unless Jessy has found some objectionable connections to Germans someplace in her genetic past it's unlikely I'm going to get much comment. :-)
I'm sure this program along with a steady diet of watching Hogan's Heroes should help you fit right in :)
We never had HH but I've heard of it. Dusty's Trail was the one I had instead, and the Beverly Hillbillies.
Very impressive! I admire your persistence.Traveling in your country as I post this comment. Have loved every minute and you Irish are among the friendliest folk I've ever met.
I hope the rain isn't too much where you are. We've had a few wallops of it up on Donegal this last week or so. And we're getting very heavy burst of it almost every day here. But it's really quite good otherwise I feel.Yep limpet like sometimes. :-)
Okay... so I'm laughing at the Hogan's Heroes reference. (I use to love that show as a kid)I admire your persistence, as well. It's easy to give up on something like that. Yes. A trip to Germany should be on the horizon.
Yes, or Austria. But mostly tiz because there are some books I want to read actively. Not sitting and translating word for word.
