Do a German Challenge week:

Weekly:

  • Stayed on the Memrise German 5 leaderboard.
  • Had a conversation for at least 5 minutes in German every day.
  • Did a blog post every day.
  • Uploaded a video 5 out of 7 days.

Daily:

  • When to the Isarinselfest, had two conversations in German with two different groups of people, then did a review for the week in German. Uploaded the video, wrote a blog post, and shared everything on social media. (03/09/2017)
  • Uploaded yesterday’s video and made a blog post, carried on general practice and prepared for the final video of my challenge tomorrow. (02/09/2017)
  • Practised speaking German all morning, then went to the Botanical Gardens to film a conversation, didn’t manage to upload the video though. (01/09/2017)
  • Filmed and edited a video, then uploaded a post for yesterday. Then made it to the top of the Memrise German 5 leaderboard and made another post about slowing things down to focus, no video this time though.(31/08/2017)
  • Spent a day at the Tegernsee, managed my Memrise quota but not much else. (30/08/2017)
  • Filmed, edited and uploaded the second video, wrote a blog post, wrote a brief script, and spent an hour and a half on Memrise (although now I am only fourth on the leaderboard, I still have my sights on first place for the end of the week though). (29/08/2017)
  • Uploaded a video, wrote a blog post, spent an hour writing, another hour on Memrise (currently third on the leaderboard!), and had a conversation that lasted about 3 minutes (but I’ll count it anyway, just this once). (28/08/2017)
  • Wrote a blog post about the challenge. (27/08/2017)

 

Set up the Learn Journ:

  • Set up social medias, added an online resume and contact page, and fixed SEO and readability (didn’t quite get green everywhere though). (24/08/2017).

  • About and Now pages. (21/08/2017)
  • Set up domain etc. (20/08/17)
