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...

Re: How do YOU find videos on YouTube?

For TV shows in particular, never underestimate the usefulness of "in *insert language* in conjunction with the duration filter. Some of my best finds have been thanks to that, for example in German I would start off by just typing "Auf Deutsch" and have the duration set for videos ov...
