Hey everyone, how’s it going? I feel like this has been a really good week for French. I finished reading French Short Stories for Beginners and Intermediate Learners: Engaging Short Stories to Learn French and Build Your Vocabulary by Language Guru (sorry, no video of me talking about it), and got through another chapter from Barron’s Painless French. The one thing I was hoping to do that I didn’t get to was pick a new French show to watch on Netflix. I was watching one a few weeks ago but lost interest in it (it really wasn’t my kind of show, but I did like that the episodes were shorter). I’ve saved a bunch of French shows on my list though, so I’ll have to pick through and find something new!
While French was good, I don’t feel like I did as well with Ukrainian this week. I did read a few stories from 100 Easy Ukrainian Texts, but not as many as I was hoping to. I also didn’t listen to any episodes of Ukrainian Lessons Podcast (but I did listen to a lot of Ukrainian music – I’m getting to the point where I can mostly sing along to my favourite Ukrainian song!)
That’s about all I’ve got to report right now. For this week I have to fit more Ukrainian reading in. I also get to start a new French book – that’s going to be French Short Stories for Beginners: 20 Captivating Short Stories to Learn French and Grow Your Vocabulary the Fun Way! by Lingo Mastery. This was the first French book of short stories that I got; I attempted to read it when I got it during the summer, but I was really struggling to understand a lot of the first story so I put it aside. Hopefully I’ll have more luck this time!
