88

Oh no! I’ve lost my first Sue Barton book in German. I could make a start on volume 2, but that’s not the same thing. Oh well.

I’d read 3 pages of it at a sitting—about 1000 words. It only took me about 10 minutes, so that’s a useful rate of language processing. 

Oh yes! I got something in the mail that I didn’t expect. Gaston Dorren, the author of ‘Lingo’, sent me some Hindi material. I’d Twittered him not to worry: the postage was pricey, and you can’t easily send money to Europe from NZ.


Swings and roundabouts.
