Re: Tarvos' новый лог

I am now over halfway through Monday begins on Saturday by the Strugatsky brothers (in the original Russian, of course), and it's like the 60s Soviet version of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Yes, it's that weird. Nothing in this book makes any kind of sense, but it's funny. This book has be...

Re: The Polyglot Gathering, Bratislava 2017

I'm excited and terrifying! Due to the fact that I'm leaving my job next week (and also because it was cheaper) I changed my booking so that I won't arrive in Bratislava until the 31st. However, I'll be arriving obscenely early - at least, obscenely early for someone who doesn't believe in being any...

Re: PM's French Courses Mission

Well done, PM, I'm super happy for you! You gave yourself a generous amount of time before you take the C1 test, right? I say give yourself three or four months where you don't worry about what plan is the most efficient or whether or not you should be using your study hours differently. Just do cou...

Re: Sol's New Russian & Korean Log

Hi Sol! Have you considered a TESOL course? Would there be programs that allow you to teach if you have a TESOL/TEFL course already in hand? I think you need a bachelor's degree even if you are TESOL/TEFL certified. From this site : Three things are required to teach English in Korea. First, you wi...

Re: Expug's 2017 Log - It's now and forever

I was caught off-guard by Clozemaster's change on 'mastering' chriteria. Now if you have already seen a card and you get it wrong, it goes back to 0% mastered. This is annoying because I was satisfied with the previous system that would only point that I've seen that card 4 times until mastery. I d...

Re: formal or informal on this forum

I feel like we're a group of friends so I'd find it rather strange if anyone on this forum started addressing me formally online or in real life.
