A tough chapter. The verbs suddenly get a lot more complicated.
Apparently it’s unusal to cover this many tenses in the space of three hours, but we now know the perfect, future, imperfect, and aorist tenses.
To prepare for Tuesday’s exam, I’ve started copying all the insights that I’ve found from the textbook into another notebook: this means revising (again) all the vocab, but also picking up some of the things that I’ve missed along the way.
The hard part, it seems, is not the vocab: that’s merely time consuming, nor the rules – they make sense, in their own way. Even the exceptions can be learned, and explained. The hard part is when a word is missing from a sentence, but it still has an effect on the sentence… and you haven’t noticed that particular rule, because it’s only a single sentence in the textbook.
