What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Onto Norwegian, and onto my Norwegian language HP1 hardback. Thanks to Youtube I also have the audio. I find that I haven’t the patience to tackle it sentence by sentence—according to the Heinrich maneuver. In fact, I’m starting to think this ought only to be applied to languages in which any commonality is lacking.

The thing is to increase one’s tolerance to the unknown. To become comfortable with 95 to 98 percent non-understanding, as opposed to the 95 to 98 percent understanding of texts used (as Paul Nation et al recommend).

A language like Norwegian I dive straight in.
