Re: There are worse things I could do... (FR, RU, ES)

I've been in a bit of a funk about languages (and generally) this week, and I think my week summary kind of reflects that. Though, on the plus side, I have now hit 200 language hours so far this year so I am ahead of target (just). I love languages, but I am definitely not as committed as most peopl...

I don't mind genitive plural, but the 'faves' was definitely sarcasm! :lol:

Re: There are worse things I could do... (FR, RU, ES)

This has been a pretty uninspired week for language learning sadly. I am applying for summer jobs, which is taking up a slightly ridiculous amount of time, but will hopefully pay off! I've also been doing a lot more reading in English, as I make my way through the classics. Finally, we've had to wat...

Re: Russian Study Group

I have a Russian textbook called Я люблю русские глаголы. It's divided into verbs of motion (my faves! :roll: ) and aspect, and seems to be mostly concentrated on exercises. I haven't got too far with it yet, but will try and come up with a more thorough review when I eventually get there. But until...

Re: Ingaræð's Yellow Brick Road (DE/FR/RU...)

At the risk of going off-topic, I have to stand up for language degrees here. I think the fee situation in the UK is totally mad, but it's mad for all degrees, not just languages. There are definitely big problems with how the teaching works: too large classes, lack of respect for language teachers ...

Re: Super Challenge 2016-17 DISCUSSION THREAD

I'm reasonably on track for French, but I'm definitely not going to make it for Russian. :oops: I'm still aiming to get closer, but not doing an amazing job at the moment because of other responsibilities.

Re: There are worse things I could do... (FR, RU, ES)

A mostly unrelated question: what are your thoughts on Tamora Pierce? I've got a boxset of four of her books waiting for me to purchase them at work, but I'm feeling somewhat reluctant - I'm scared I won't like them! Sorry, I only just saw this! I read Tamora Pierce as a young teen and really loved...
