I agree. As a key point in the article puts it:
“The brain is very plastic, meaning that it can be shaped by learning and experience,” added Dr Chai.

Re: Werk, Obair, Rad, Kazi - the four steps to success

A belated and brief update: -Changing the format yet again. Don't have the time to arrange my life around language learning and all that. Basically every day it's either Anki revision + ID in TL or 90ish minutes of the stuff two posts ago. -The amount of Anki revision should also be limited to no mo...

Re: Werk, Obair, Rad, Kazi - the four steps to success

Reporting after the first session. The two tests alone took me nearly two hours. I began the second test (dialang) 80 minutes in and it took me 20*. Given that I consistently took 10 minutes per tatoeba test last month, it turns out the elephant in the room is taking the unknown words from it, trans...

Re: Werk, Obair, Rad, Kazi - the four steps to success

I got bogged down in doing other stuff and have done zero learning this month. :( The only good thing at the moment is that it's only the 12th and I can still do more progress than last month. But I won't get there without preparation, so... The monthly plan of attack Level EDO RMHW RHW • GD • R + V...

Re: LLorg London 2017

OK, I'll be the organiser, but I'll need lots of assistance and I'm not really comfortable about holding peoples money. So might need a designated "accountant" who's willing to hold any money and make any payments, etc. So if your coming please tell me or post in the thread and I'll add y...

Re: Werk, Obair, Rad, Kazi - the four steps to success

Hi! I don't know if that would interest you, but there are online test that claim to measure you level on the A1-C2 scale. Dialang is more reliable, but the testing takes longer. Anyway, I always count the minutes spent on testing my languages. 10 minutes is not terribly long, but it's 1/6 of an ho...
