I Solve Problems Chiropractic Business Plan
And on that second day, while going through a few chapters of my course book, the one thing that was taking me the most time was trying to figure out the new letters and how to read them.
It was the majority of my time using the book, and was fragmented in itself, and if I solved this problem I'd go through the first entire section of the book MUCH quicker.
but what I have right now is useful and that was the point of it all.
Today I had a class and (while I still did it slowly), I could go through the basic dialogue that the teacher sent me, which was entirely in Arabic script.
I've Skyped other teachers since and it turns out that none of them transliterate the words they write to you, unless specifically requested to, and nearly all their material doesn't have any familiar Latin letters.
Since I'm learning the the absolute beginners ones with a book introduction that implies that this is clearly for English speakers!
It was pretty clear: I needed to prioritise being able to read Arabic right now.
If you are not speaking the language after putting in considerable time into it, (and speaking is one of your goals for real) this is the only possible explanation in my mind. In engineering, programming etc., sometimes there is one block of code or one feedback loop that is slowing the entire process down.What was the ONE biggest thing holding me back from progressing in Arabic?Having just started it, I didn't have enough words, my pronunciation was terrible, my grammar non-existent, I couldn't understand any radio I'd listen to, I can't debate Kantian philosophy – you know, the usual ten million things that I can't do as a beginner.My second day, I got into using my course material and got through several chapters.But it was really starting to feel like busywork that wasn't helping me directly enough with my upcoming spoken session.As you'd expect after learning for just a week, as my first video it's painfully slow, so patience is required if you're actually going to watch more than a minute! Follow the steps that the guru in that one best method told you to?Today's post explains the process that got me to making this video, and an essential aspect of the steps behind this 3-month project. Some of these options are great, and some are just busy-work, to make you feel like you are doing something. Think about what your absolute biggest problem is right now, and try to solve it.Chapters in a huge course like that is an almost endless process, and in the early stages of learning a language, I need something solid to work with, rather than gradual improvement of learning the language in general.After the second day, I thought seriously for a bit.Here it is – my first ever video in Arabic, a week after starting to learn it!Subtitles are provided in original Arabic, English and Portuguese for all videos of this project.
