So….when am I actually going to get around to *starting* my language learning odyssey? Well….joy to the world, the kids are home on school holidays….and throwing up mind, you. 5 family members affected. Oh what joy. Even the dog threw up the other day. Everyone except me….
Now lets’s see…I’ve reset all my LingQ stats to zero. Ordered some Assimil and Teach Yourself from Amazon – they must be sending it to Australia by row-boat, judging from the estimated delivery dates. I *do* have Michel Thomas in Chinese and Japanese. I have Assimil Chinese in my hands, yay.
Maybe my Chinese Odyssey can begin tomorrow?? Maybe the kids will go to bed without sick dramas…maybe husband will turn down the footy or the tennis or the Grand Prix or the rugby on the T.V. , who knows. Nowhere to go study in peace and quiet – no such animal exists. Not complaining, mind you. (not really). Life is good.
Granted, I have some Chinese under my belt from Uni, but really I’m still an A1 beginner. It won’t take long for me to revise everything I know.
