Things continue to be going well and I think that is largely related to the fact that I have been following through with what I said I would do last week and ensure that I complete my challenge each day before I go to bed. This can sometimes be a challenge as I know we all have those days where once we finally get to bed all we want to do is go to sleep (after we check each social media platform at least twice that is).
Another cool feature that I decided to give a try was making a wager on the app itself. In the app, you are given gems which of course have no value outside of the game. I made a wager with the app and bet 50 gems that I would be able to go seven days in a row. If I succeeded I would be rewarded with 200. I am a very competitive person and this is not something that I was going to be okay with if it lost. So I ensured that I completed my 15 minutes of daily French and this week I had almost two hours of French practice on the app. Of course I wanted to keep this momentum going and I extedned the challange for this coming week. So keep an eye on my twitter to see how things are going.
One of my side goals for this coming week is to spend a few minutes on the web app to see what I can do with that. I believe that it is the exact same as the app however, I would like to confirm. I hope to begin using screencast sometime over reading week and that way you will be able to actually hear and see me speak French rather than just write about it.
I’ll leave you with some final proof that I actually did complete my goal for the week. Hope you will continue to keep up with me on my #learningproject journey.
