|The "new" wmtc mobile:
a 2006 Kia Spectra with "only" 155,000 kms.
I even managed to carve out some serious concentrated time to get both my library work and my union work completely caught up before we leave.
I'm madly practicing my Arabic! I wish I had started a few months earlier, or had gone faster at the beginning. I could really use another few weeks' worth of lessons. But maybe I'd feel that way no matter how far along I was.
I am still really enjoying both Arabic and Mango. Practicing on my lunch break using earphones, I've discovered that using Mango on a computer and browser is actually better than using it through an app on a mobile device. Not all features are available on the app. That seems like a design flaw: I'd much rather practice while relaxing on the couch than in front of a computer. Even so, Mango is terrific. I've learned so much more than I thought I would, and easily.
We leave on Monday, February 6. More soon!
