Language learning update
I run a couple of language learning challenges in the Habitica Language Hackers guild. I find that the weekly and monthly updates I post to the guild keep me focused and help to make me aware of when I'm making good progress and when I've been neglecting my studies.

It's not quite the end of the month yet, but I did my report for August today so I'm re-posting a lightly edited version here too for reference.

After a summer disrupted by trips away from home, I'm getting the language study underway again. Trying to start Spanish while maintaining the Welsh is proving challenging, but at the moment I've stopped doing the Spanish challenges and I'm trying the Goldlist method to give me some familiarity with the language before working through the challenges in earnest in the autumn when the Welsh classes and Welsh conversation group will have started again. That will ensure that the Welsh doesn't get neglected and I can focus on making some progress with the Spanish.

Well, that's the plan! I'll let you know how it goes in future reports.

I think you're pretty cool, all around :).

*Blush* Thank you. I get frustrated because I don't have the energy that I used to have. I look back in amazement at what I used to achieve, but I keep plodding on. :)
