Hi guys,

I just wanted to inform you that the Admin has reactivated Josquin, so I'm back with my old profile. Of course, this poses questions about my Pro Membership and what do to with the Lassus profile in general, but, anyway, it's good to be back in my old reincarnation.

Please keep reporting in! ;)

That is great! I do prefer to think of you as Josquin :-)

I'm still studying quite intensively. I have a class once a week which gives an hour of homework exercises. I'm reading Маленький Принц on the web, also reading a graded reader called Тамань and occasionally some texts on Lingocracy. I'm watching the series Кухня online, and 1-2 films with subtitles per week. I currently listen to the podcasts A Taste of Russian and RussianPodcast.eu, and I also try to do five Assimil lessons per week (I just reached 50, the halfway point). Meanwhile I'm slipping behind, but still trying to keep up with my Penguin Russian book and lessons on LearnRussian.rt.com, where I've completed 35. Occasionally I write short texts and get them corrected on Lang-8. And then there is an Anki deck to finish creating and dozens of other study materials I feel like I should be using more.

I honestly have no idea where the time and motivation comes from to do all this!

I officially start my 2 week "Russian Boot Camp" tomorrow. My main activity will be to study episodes of Kuhnya using Leosmith's (and his tutor's) cool transcripts each day, and then watch them with my wife in the evening. I'm also switching to speaking and thinking only in Russian as much as possible for the duration of the project.

Much like you guys, I've got some intermediate resources to keep me busy, just in case there's any time left over between preparing and watching episodes of Kuhnya. This includes text and audio from "A Spoonful of Russian", and a bunch of short easy readers I recently bought from Red Kalinka.

@Cristina
I love how you measure your Russian resources now in physical metres! ;)

I'm still keeping up with Russian, but haven't been hanging around the forum for some
time due to my medical boards, which are eating up a huge chunk of my time. I'm at lesson
50 of Assimil, and watching some Masha on Youtube. I'd watch adult stuff, but at the end
of a long day full of biochemistry, I have no real desire for anything serious, or
remotely adult :) I'm also reading a couple of easy readers I borrowed from the local
library. It's a very slow process, but hopefully after I'm done with my boards, I'll be
able to scale up on my Russian. That said, I'm glad I've at least been consistent with
the language. I'll try my best to keep up with everybody's individual logs, too. Missed
everyone and can't wait to see what y'all have been up to!

Great to have you back, Josquin! Lassus was way cool, but I got used to thinking of you
as Josquin :D

I'm in peace with Russian now. I'm learning a bit each day, though I don't think extensive reading is helping much at this stage. When I read a Russian paragraph, I simply can't figure out the context.

I'm still working on Méthode 90 and after this one I might try an intermediate textbook such as Living Language. I'm also working with Russianpod101's podcasts (currently at the intermediate level).
