A New Learning Idea

I love languages, but I've never been the type to dive head-first into the learning and it's a very frustrating trait to have. I listen passively, I read a paragraph (or worse yet, a sentence) and figure, "That's enough for today," I attempt to write once in a blue moon...oy vey! :)  Honestly though, I don't think it's that trait so much as it is I don't make use of what I've learned, no matter how small the amount, which is a great segue into the next topic...

One thing I've tried a couple of times is to write words, phrases and even brief grammar notes on a dry-erase board. I have a small one on my fridge and really should use this tactic more often, because once the books are closed, I rarely look again at the notes I took that day, but this dry-erase thing causes me to see those writings everytime I walk in de keuken. I can picture myself subconsciously repeating these new words/phrases throughout the day. As they enter into my lexicon more readily, I can erase them from the board, write them in a notebook (for safe keeping, in case they do fade from memory, although I hope enough repetition will make this event unlikely), then move on to the next set on a new day. I'll give this a more serious whirl and report back on whether it worked for me.

  1. You are a member of the tribe! I understand how you think, lol.

    Have you tried Routledge Romanian?

  2. Glad someone does. :) I've never heard of Routledge Romanian. Is it the same as Colloquial Romanian?
