December 2020


The reading phase begins. Also, MIA is no longer a thing. Refold is where it’s at.


Up until now, I hadn’t really read anything besides subtitles and chat messages. Now I wanted to move onto books.

I looked around for some easy content. Some of the recommendations were comics, manga, translated works and graded readers. I liked the idea of graded readers, but couldn’t find any online. However, I did find some bilingual readers.

I started reading them in conjunction with the audiobook. This helped me focus on the story without getting lost in the words. This is 2-channel reading according to Refold.

I then moved onto Чайка (пьеса Чехова). With the same reading process as described above.
