Two weeks of Spanish, and I'm already at a 60% level! Well, sort of.
I've been thinking—how can progress be measured if your approach is to work on everything at once, and so improve incrementally across a wide front? Yesterday I tried devising a way.
I’ll take a passage of Spanish, say. I assign scores to every word. Those I know reasonably well score 2, those I know slightly score 1, and unknown words score zero.
Compared to the maximum possible score, I express the total as a percentage. This gives me a figure to compare myself with later.
