As this project is substantially in abeyance, this report is mostly generated automatically, with minor textual additions at the end of each academic year.


Rationale for this Project
Summary of Progress during July - September 2020
  1. I spent 59.75 hours in 20Q3 on this Project, or related work (146 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2019). That's 76.4% of the planned effort (112% YTD). Overall, 8.6% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 5.2% YTD) - as against 11.1% planned (4.4% YTD).
  2. Languages (Total Hours = 59.75)
    1. Languages - Admin
    2. Languages - Armenian (Total Hours = 20.75)
    3. Languages - Hindi (Total Hours = 3.75)
    4. Languages - Japanese
    5. Languages - Portuguese
    6. Languages - Thai (Total Hours = 25.5)
    7. Languages - Turkish (Total Hours = 7.25)

Summary of Progress during October 2019 – September 2020 (YTD Activity2)
  1. Languages (Total Hours = 146)
    1. Languages - Admin (Total Hours = 1.75)
      • 19Q3 Status Reports (0.5 hours)
      • 19Q4 Status Reports (0.5 hours)
      • 20Q1 Status Reports (0.25 hours)
      • 20Q2 Status Reports (0.5 hours)
        → See "Admin - Languages - Admin" (1.75 hours)
    2. Languages - All (Total Hours = 2.75)
    3. Languages - Armenian (Total Hours = 20.75)
    4. Languages - Chinese
    5. Languages - Egyptian
    6. Languages - Greek (Classical)
    7. Languages - Hindi (Total Hours = 3.75)
    8. Languages - Italian
    9. Languages - Japanese
    10. Languages - Portuguese
    11. Languages - Thai (Total Hours = 105.25)
    12. Languages - Turkish (Total Hours = 7.25)
  2. As can be seen, despite the project being “inactive”, I spent quite a lot of time on it! Most is otherwise “fallow” time when walking the dog, but progress requires some time in front of grammars.
  3. The main discovery of the year was Ling Language Learning, which I’ve subscribed to the premium version of. Currently I cycle through Thai, Turkish, Armenian and Hindi. I’m resisting the temptation to add others.
  4. I was provoked into Armenian by a friend, and Hindi out of interest.
  5. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List3, and YTD in the current & future “automatic” editions of this report.
