    So after I posted this I had a dream the same night telling me I should quit the course, after which my decision was effectively taken. :p I've been feeling more rested knowing I don't have to hand in 1000 assignments a week again and already have found more time to do fun stuff for myself. Tonight I will do my last video session and after that I will email my teachers that I'll quit the course.

    How is everyone else doing?

      Aw, that's a shame. But I'm glad you feel good about your decision. Still trudging through the book.

        I am now officially studying Japanese as my third language ^-^. I picked up kana a few months ago so I can read a bit... Except for the two thousand something kanji that I gotta learn.

          my spanish final is coming up

          i just wish there wasnt an oral aspect to it

          I'm pretty good at writing, but Im not great at speaking. Its a mix of nervousness and not speaking well in general. I get screwed up with my english words when speaking sometimes... speaking in spanish just makes that worse. It wouldnt be nearly as bad if my nerves didnt break my concentration.

            3 weeks away from completing my 2nd level of Japanese at my university. Right now I'm pretty good at understanding a child's level of grammatical structures (like I'm playing Moon in Japanese and I understand most of it, but granted I haven't been scrutinizing every line of dialogue). My reading can definitely improve; it annoys me how slow I read compared to how fast I am in English. I have a few hundred Kanji maybe memorized? It's hard to tell because on my Quizlet I have words instead of individual characters. But when I turned on the Kanji feature in Moon I had to pause every line 'cause there was another character I didn't know. So, I've got a long way to go still.

            My confidence keeps screwing with my speaking. I try and study for at least an hour every day (aside from homework). If anyone wants to practice, send me a VM :)

              I suppose I'll join in on this since I'm 'learning' German right now by playing games.
              Maybe not super effective but it's interesting and imo not boring compared to other methods.

                  I am learning German on Duolingo. Once I reach a high enough level, I might enroll for a course in University or some private institution (my brother is taking private classes). I also intend to learn Gujarati (can already read it), Malayalam, Farsi and Japanese.

                    Happy to see everyone busy with some language! I myself am currently slowly improving my Spanish by watching random shows and getting into Spanish music. It's actually helping!

                    That's exactly what happened with me haha. Was it also suuuuper ridiciously fast-paced? That's what made me drop out because I couldn't keep up with my other subjects.
