Re: A forum for non-language chatter ?

I have always thought that more cultural elements to this forum would be great, not political or overly religious, but in my mind there will always be overlap between a language and its culture. After all, one of the criteria seen as crossing the boundary in language mastery is often perceived to be...

Re: Das Faultier der Deutschen Sprache

I currently feel so Kaputt! Slowly I am working my way through deadlines and completing my exams, but for the life of me, I cannot fathom why it is not possible to schedule exams and such so that you do not end up having to fill in 20 to 30 different mandatory forms, requiring signatures from severa...

Re: April Vocabulary Challenge

I am probably not going to do anymore tonight, so figure I may as well post my total so far since the start of the challenge. My total so far is 801 words. I guess I am easily on track for my goal, so I may have to modify it and see how it goes. I was not actually overly happy with the time I was a...

Re: April Vocabulary Challenge

I am also down. I have neglected Memrise for far too long already due to exams and such, but this looks to be a great excuse to get get back to my usual memrising. I will use this course for German https://www.memrise.com/course/198332/4000-german-words-by-frequency-with-audio/ My level of German se...

Re: Das Faultier der Deutschen Sprache

I feel like I should write an introduction post as it has been so long! But, yeah, I should hopefully be a little more visible once more due to having finally finished all of my French exams. I was actually having quite a lot of problems studying German and French at the same time, which was quite a...

Re: Das Faultier der Deutschen Sprache

My studies have changed how I practise for the time being, some of which is not so great, but actually some of these changes are quite nice. I am fortunate enough to have rekindled a few friendships in which I am able to chat for hours at a time over Skype. I was not able to actually use my spoken G...

Re: LLorg London 2017

Not entirely sure whether I will still be in the UK or not, but if so I would tag along. I would feel a little silly in terms of language ability compared to the rest of you guys, though. :P

Re: Das Faultier der Deutschen Sprache

Good luck with those deadlines! I know how it is to be buried under all of them at once! About the language classes - have you checked what classes are on offer at the University? When I was in France, there were extra-curricular classes available for students to sign up to, completely free. I know...

Re: Das Faultier der Deutschen Sprache

What's time? Where has it gone, and why do I not seem able to find it currently... geesh. I will reply properly once I have sorted somethings out. I currently have 5 important pieces of work to submit, because, you know, setting pieces throughout the year would be crazy talk. It makes far more sense...
