Thursday August 12th, Friday August 13th
Thursday and Friday were holidays, which should have meant that I had more time than normal to work on this project, but I ended up teaching strange hours and running around doing stuff. It’s unfortunate that I don’t have an Android phone with which to test out the mobile version of L-Lingo, but I was able to get a lot of use out of their paper flash cards and MP3s. I probably only put in two hours on each day, but still feel like I made progress.
At the end of week one, I can comfortably recall the 60 words in lessons 1-10 (Burmese->English and English->Burmese) and have a good grasp on the 18 words in lessons 11, 12, 13 (all lessons have exactly 6 new words). Today I’ll start back in with new words, and also review old words. I’m starting to realized how important the audio recordings are for learning these words, and am starting to think that I’m going to have to get my teacher to record part of my textbook for me. Has anyone done much voice recording with the iPhone? Or should I buy a dedicated voice recorder?
