On December 2nd I posted my plan to learn 100 words a week and build to a 5,000 word active vocabulary by the end on 2014. I’m happy to post that I’m right on track, having learned 400 new words in the four weeks since that December 2nd post. I can’t spell all of them, nor can I always come up with the word if you ask me what it is in English, but I can consistently understand the written or spoken words in and out of context.
I have changed up the materials I’m using a bit because my original plan actually introduced more vocabulary than I could handle (well over 100!). I’m testing out a new plan this week, but I won’t post it until I’ve tried it out next week when school starts up again. Anything I create while on vacation will be necessarily unrealistic during the school year.
Also, I was just e-mailed a discount code from ThaiPod101 that’s pretty decent and brings the program almost down to the price I said I thought was reasonable in my review. I’m contemplating adding that resource to the mix.
