504

In the midst of end-of-course throes, I nevertheless managed to do a little with two languages. I also did a bit of reflection and invention.

With Polish, I’ve returned to Jack Reacher. I like to ‘do a Heinrich’ and compare a sentence at a time. For each sentence I choose a word to copy down—whether I know it or not. This gives me a sense of progress. I thought of just copying the first word in the sentence that I didn’t know, but that would rob me of scanning the rest of it.

“Untaught language” has only 142 hits.
