Learning the Spanish Language — Project Day 27

There's no time left to conduct a proper written review.

Total time spent on focused Spanish learning was probably just above average, but a late start meant that most of the routine was abandoned to catch-up work.

So the key lesson, as almost always, is that I need to find the means to get going early after a full night's sleep. I suspect that other objectives might need to be temporally sacrificed.



  1. More than average maintence tasks done
  2. Picked up pace and focus as day progressed
  3. Worked long into the evening
  4. Lots more, useful, written exercises than usual
  5. New exercise resources identified


  1. Broken sleep
  2. Late start
  3. Video resources taking too long to prepare
