This post is part of my ongoing Journal on learning Burmese. You can read the whole Journal here.
So, 2 weeks out. Quick update.
Progress is coming along well. Tomorrow morning I will have made Anki cards for the whole of the Burmese By Ear course and it’ll be time to get stuck into revising. Happy I’ve stayed on track up till this point. But there’s still a lot to do…
I’ve put together a screencast with a bit more detail (actually, a lot more detail) about my studying approach. It includes one morning Anki card making session, and one Anki revision session. So it’s what you could call one ‘study cycle’ I guess. The Anki revision session includes not only my Burmese content but also my cards from all other languages and most of my other decks, so you’ll be able to see all of the other topics that I’m using Anki to stay on top of also.
WHY SO MUCH DETAIL OLLIE?????
When I was starting out learning Mandarin I was super inspired by other language learners like Scott Young and Benny Lewis , but I wanted more detail on exactly what they did in their study sessions, and always had trouble finding it. As I refine my own method, I’m keen to try to share some of this fine-level detail with others who are curious. The screencast in this post has been created for just this reason.
