To be honest, I should have posted this earlier, but I will do it now anyway.
I am very satisfied with my goals so far. The only two bad news were not being able to complete my goal of reaching 250 words in Spanish from January 22, 2021 to January 31, 2021 and not listening enough in my judgment.
In terms for February and March, I reached more than my targeted word count. In February, I wanted to reach at least 600 words. I acquired 648 words. In March, I wanted to reach at least 1000 words. I acquired 1001 words.
From April 1 to April 21, I acquired 783 words. My goal from March 2021 to December 2021 is to acquire 1000 words or more per month. As of April 30th, I will have acquired more than 1000 words.
From January 22 to April 21, I acquired 2677 words.
I did 12 writing compositions. I acquired 187 words.
I used three main sources: LingQ, Formed and Spanishpod101. Formed focuses on Catholicism. I used the “Reflexiones de Cuaresma” daily readings. I acquired 83 words from them. Spanishpod101 is part of Innovative Language. From Spanishpod101, I used Beginner Seasons 1-5, Gengo Spanish, St. Patrick’s Vocabulary and Must- Known Valentine’s Day Vocabulary. As a result, I acquired 1091 words. From LingQ, I acquired 1231 words. From other sources, I acquired 85 words.
I listened for over 15 hours from January 22 to April 21. While this is not bad, I could do more than that. I got to do more.
What to do from here?
I will be using LingQ for some lessons that I would like. I will continue to read Spanishpod101 for intermediate content. I will read the Bible in Spanish. I will read books and websites that focus on Spanish history, Spanish literature, math, Catholicism, economics and sciences. In addition, I used to remember watching an educational website known as Brainpop. Luckily, there is Brainpop español. This will bring good memories and more exposure to Spanish.
To be honest, I do not think that I can read the Bible entirely during this 90-day challenge. I will read some of it. I will vary the content to challenge myself further. I will listen to old content to get more exposure to listening.
Overall, this was a successful 90-day challenge for me. I am doing another 90-day challenge to myself. I want to do more than the previous 90-day challenge. This is from April 22 to July 30. Let’s keep up the good work!
