Back at it again! ILP

I am a little ashamed to admit this but when I took a week off from practicing my Lakota language I forgot more than I would have liked to. I have lots of excuses on why this happened but that doesn’t change anything. My lesson I learned from a week off is DON’T take a week of from learning. With that being said this week I made extra time to regroup my learning. I started reviewing the animals and then people. Once I had gone over them a few times I was getting back in the swing of things. To continue my learning I have downloaded a Lakota language app on my phone to help me. I found this to be neat because when I am on the go and have a few minutes I can learn away from my computer. I thought this would be a good time management choice. I am glad to be getting back into the swing of things. After I had reviewed animals and people I reviewed the phrases I had learned. The phrases are harder to learn than just the single words.

A couple of weeks ago Chadron had a teacher interview day in which I participated in. When I interviewed at one of the stations I was handed a subbing application. As I looked through the application one of the questions were do you know Lakota language. I so badly wanted to put yes but I am nowhere near fluent but it was exciting that that was a questions that I can potentially answer yes to!

    It is amazing how long it takes to learn new information, but how quickly it is to forget it! I have the same problem with being in shape and what not. It could take a long time to get where I want to physically and then lose it within a matter of weeks. I also think that it is so great that you are seeing situations and opportunities where this will benefit you greatly. Good luck with the rest of it.

    I am glad that I chose not to take the week off my ILP, I was afraid I would lose some of what I had learned and I figured if I was not doing any other assignments then it was a good time to focus just on my ILP. Keep working, you will soon enough be able to say yes.

    I’ve always heard the saying, “if you don’t use it, you lose it.” I guess that rings true for anything and everything! Keep it up, however, and it’ll be a good feeling being able to check that “yes” box!
