Currently, my situation vis-à-vis language activity is an interesting one. I do a lot of listening, but much less reading. Yesterday, so instance, I listened to 6 languages an average of 10 minutes each while walking to the Otago Polytechnic staff breakfast. Then, later in the morning, I read only about 5 minutes worth of Japanese.

That’s the reverse of when I started out on this project. Since then, the pendulum has swung over to the other side. That’s fascinating, because I had always been a reluctant listener.

My short-term goal is clear: to implement the brain-shift balance through reading.
