What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Tuesday, 6 March 2018


Yesterday’s focus was Italian, which is a latecomer to my multi-language party. However, as a European language it’s very welcome. I’m happy to be doing as many languages of that type as possible. Really, the more the merrier.

The best activity I’ve found for myself is doing a Heinrich maneuver. I compare sentences one at a time. I’m using Killing Zone—the first Jack Reacher. The font size gives me about 6 words per line. My aim is to highlight one word per line. I choose words that are recognizable.

I demonstrated this for a language class that I relieved.
