The shape of learning so far has been:
- 3 hours RH, (though frankly I'm assuming that, it was ages ago).
- Ditto LH, (really).
- About 3 hours of painful neurological shenanigans, with 2H, a real bloomin' slog.
- Now around 4 hours and it's still difficult, but I'm engaging with it, "Oh yes, that's why that LH thing happens here." "Oh I've read that wrong, it must be... ah yes;" (my knowledge of notation being imperfect but improving).
But I want to find out which is going to be best now and going forward. My own teaching/learning experience (of language, of course, and the two skills may not be sufficiently comparable), tells me that diving in, considering the whole text, and not deconstructing it (initially), is the most effective way to learn.
