Welcoming another new language to my life 🙂
I started Korean in 2008 and re-started Japanese in 2012. Can’t quite believe it’s been 10 and 6 years since then.
When I mentioned on Insta that I was going to learn Russian, I was quite surprised by how the main reaction was “HUH THIS IS SO RANDOM”. Actually, it’s not that random. I’ve always wanted to learn Russian someday, just that I didn’t get down to doing it till now.
It was probably on a random whim that I actually got down to learning half the alphabet on my own a couple of months ago, but I realised that I really couldn’t find the motivation and discipline to do all 3 languages on my own. So I contemplated taking classes and one fine day this week (lol), I decided to Google for suitable classes and woohoo I found something that fit perfectly (must be fate!). So I signed up the very next day and went for my first Russian lesson a few days later! Hahaha talk about spontaneous decisions 🙂
While I do believe in making measured decisions, sometimes it’s really all these spontaneous decisions that turn out to be awesome choices in life. That was also how I got into Korean and Japanese language. Random decisions. 🙂
Thanks Gil for the notebook! 🙂 I used it immediately!
I have two notebooks for Russian now – one for class and one for self-study. Although I’m taking classes, I’m not planning to rely entirely on them to progress and hopefully I can still find some time to self-study 🙂
Till next time! 🙂
