So the audio goes faster than in prior lessons. Other than that, it is laid out the same as the first 6 lessons. Very easy to understand. I am hoping to spend a week on mastering this lesson. I have been averaging 1 week per lesson. I will update as needed.
So I got some good practice in today. Going back to the video tutorial, Linda talks about how some folks are not so good at spelling, so you can change your dictionary to eliminate the 6 different ending and just have two. I am my Father's daughter.( You should see my Dad's spelling, it is comical) The 6 endings were too much for my brain to process. I spent too much time thinking about if the spelling was an A or an I. So, when the time comes to have a dictionary, I will take the time to change it. My new endings will be
Ending ABLE, BLE= -BL
Ending Ibility and Ability=-BLT
Forget the other way. I pretty got nowhere yesterday trying to to it hard way, but now that I have changed course, I made progress. I am working on memorizing the new arbitraries.
I have my sons therapist coming over today, so I won't get as much practice in. However, I am working on the sentences portion. I anticipate being done by the weekend. Wahoo. So far my problem is identifying what sounds are spelled which way. Like VIEW. I am so focused on the new information, VIEW is a long U, but I am thinking "is it a AO" and can't keep up with the diction. Recognizing sounds will take practice
I can keep up with the sentences portion, with only few mistakes. I should be done soon:)
Moving on to ten:)
I emailed support yesterday about my concern with forgetting things from past lessons. In the course of two months, we have learned a lot of new information. I am worried I would forget some of the arbitraries. They said to practice a past lesson or look over arbitraries from past lessons in the reference manual. I am going to start reviewing one lesson everyday. Since I can easily listen to the audio drill from any past lesson, It will not take but a few minutes to review. I will feel more confident moving forward, if I start doing this. Plus it is a confidence booster to quickly move through a audio drill.
