Re: So many languages, so little time. A(nother) language log (RU, EO, maybe some others)

The wife and daughter #1 came back from London on Saturday night (RIP to those who perished today) with two books for me: Colloquial Welsh and Colloquial Breton. I love the Celtic languages. I'd studied Cornish seriously a few years ago ( Kernewek dre Lyther ) and got to (at least) a good reading le...

Re: Radioclare's 2017 log (Croatian/Russian)

Croatian It's been quite a positive week. I've got through 13 lessons of Glossika already, mostly in the mornings and evenings when walking between the station and my office. I really do find Glossika much more enjoyable than any other audio course I've tried, and I think it's really valuable for t...

Re: Your Language Learning Strategy...In 50 Words or so

Strategically , I attempt to use my languages weekly with the goal of slowly improving them (Esperanto) or at least maintaining them (Russian). Tactically , in Russian I speak with Russians whenever possible, at the expense of everything else (e.g. if I am in my 2-week Esperanto phase, but I see a ...

Re: Radioclare's 2017 log (Croatian/Russian)

Don't know if you're interested, but there's a great book called "As Long As Sarajevo Exists" that I read years ago (in English). It is by Kursparich or smthg like that. Anyway, he was (still is?) the editor of the newspaper Oslobodjenije (I can't remember the spelling). Bottom line: he de...

Re: So many languages, so little time. A(nother) language log (RU, EO, maybe some others)

So we went to a ballet at the Bolshoi, but not really at the Bolshoi. Let me explain: When we last lived here, the Bolshoi Theater was under construction. It opened again a few months before we left, but by that point all shows were sold out. We thought we'd lost our chance to ever go to the Bolshoi...
