    In other words

    I hope it’s because I’m tired, but this episode seems to get harder and harder. In other words, I’m not sure I’m making progress.

    But progress is being made, I’m understanding more about which words to make blank and how that will drive learning for myself.

    This has definitely been a tough clip. One more clips to go! But my goal is still the same, I need to push the tempo of words per minute up. I want to understand faster things, even if it means biting off more than I can chew right now.
