Spanish Update: Shorter study time

This post was originally posted on Babelhut.

In a previous post, I had decided to stop studying after a set amount of time to prevent being overwhelmed. I have studied Greek once since, completing a full chapter, and I studied Spanish tonight, covering about half a chapter. I didn’t quite study for a full hour, instead choosing to stop when I was tired. I think this is appropriate considering it was after midnight. I feel I made good progress today though.

It’s not exactly fair to compare the study between the two books by chapters. My Greek book is about 4 or 5 pages a chapter, while the Spanish book’s chapters are about 8 to 10 pages on average. So really I studied about the same amount. This does make me wonder which language I should study next. I have been alternating between Greek and Spanish, but since I did not finish the Spanish chapter, maybe I should study Spanish next to complete it. This would mean I study Spanish two nights for every night that I study Greek. I’m not sure that this is a bad thing.

The chapter I’m on in Spanish is covering numbers. I already knew 1 to 20 (uno a veinte) but I did not know the larger numbers like 40, 50, 100, 1000, and 1000000. (cuarenta, cincuenta, cien, mil, y millón) It seems that the rest of the chapter deals with telling time and the time of day. I do look forward to finishing the chapter despite my prior bitching.
