I never took this goal off my list.. that’s because I still want to do it! So, just kidding! I’m still going to focus on freshening up my French for a while, but I would like to eventually learn Swedish. :)
I took off some time from learning the language because I was figuring out my new university.. but now:
1) I have to return my intructional CDs because I’ve checked them out the maximum 3 times
2) I have to get back to learning French so that I can study abroad in Africa and actually DO something useful
3) I have a list of 6 languages (the UN languages) that I need to get acquainted with so that I can get my a job at an international health org, like I want
I guess there is no question now that I have to give up this goal and shift my attention elsewhere. :(
I’ve been listening to the learning CDs, and I like it! I’ll learn Swedish when I go study abroad anyway. :)
My library doesn’t have any how to learn Swedish materials. I saw a learn Norwegian book and figured that it’s the next best thing. I don’t know if they’re awfully similar and if going through the Norwegian book would make me more frustrated when I study abroad in Sweden or not. As it turns out, I don’t even need to know Swedish, since it’s required that I take intensive language courses there. I don’t know though, I do want to travel around the Scandinavian countries at some point because one of my professors convinced me that it’s worth seeing. I just want to see what “no crime” and (virtually) “no poverty” looks like (at least that’s how she described Norway). So I guess this kind of fits into the goal.
In the midst of this chaos, I’m actually working towards this goal. I’ve glanced at audio books, and picked one that I may buy soon. I just need to get a few more paychecks. That computer repair fee really hit me hard in my backside.
I want to make sure to use my brain before it gets too rigidly set in the things I know. So maybe I’ll start once I transfer and have more free time. Hopefully I can study abroad there!
