To learn 5 letters of the Georgian alphabet every day.
I don't like not recognising any letters at all. Although I can recognise the word on shop doors for "open" (at least I assume that's what it is), I don't think you can really make much progress that way, since the letters don't actually spell "open", but whatever the word is in Georgian, so I'm not going to learn much.
At 5 letters a day, I should be able to spell out words in a week. Can't be too stressful, can it?
I just got the Cyrillic add-on to Firefox, which claims you can do Georgian as well, so maybe I can even demonstrate some progress.
Happy New Year to all.
Update: written under the influence of Manana's homemade wine.
It's labelled პინო (that's pino to you). Actually it's not that easy to type what's on the bottle label since I had to replace the "p" I typed (what I got was ფ (puh)) with a პ (that's p'uh with a glottal stop). Only a lot of ingenuity and a Georgian (transliterated) dictionary fixed it.
This takes me back to learning foreign languages from reading what is written on bottles. I began with learning French from HP sauce bottles. It seems hard to understand why HP (Houses of Parliament) brown sauce should have needed a bilingual labelling in the 1950s, but I read it avidly.
Since then I have always read the labels on bottles carefully. I may not remember anything about wines and vintages but I can read the bottle in most languages I have come across, and sometimes it even came in useful, especially in Hungarian. It seems I have never posted the stuff I wrote about how I got started working in Eastern Europe. So for the New Year I give you "Can I have the baby first" as a page on the righthand margin. The baby is already 16 going on 17.
