Month in Review: July 2020

Posted August 2, 2020 by Lory in blog housekeeping / 15 Comments

The weird year that is 2020 continues into its second half. I made some announcements about future plans and my other blog (see below), and launched on my month-long Summer in Other Languages challenge of reading only in French. I only finished three books, but I count that as a win! Thanks to Emma of Words and Peace for organizing an online French book club, which was a really fun way to augment my reading and get some extra writing and discussion practice.

  1. Well done for reading three books in French! I did manage one children’s book in Spanish (and the info on the box of our new cat feeders!) so feeling proud about that.

    • I’m thinking of making this a yearly event! And the summer isn’t over … I’m still reading, just not exclusively French.

    I am so impressed with your French studies. Great job! I have restarted my daily dose of Japanese, making sure I can recognize and read hiragana right now. I don’t really have anyone to practice with right now, but I can send text greetings to my friends anyway.

    • I’m really impressed with someone who can study a very different language from their own. French and German should be relatively easy for me, but I still find them challenging. I’d be so intimidated by trying to learn one with a non-Western alphabet, so good job to you!
