Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

I confess however on some really sticky difficult dialogue I rewind and switch to english subtitles to make s...

Re: We need a new forum tag line! (brainstorming)

Re: The blog is back, too (but it needs love!)

As for the formatting, we need to set some guidelines as well. For example iguanamon's awesome posts have this kind of formatting sometimes: WARNING- LONG POST FOLLOWS!!! For a more practical demonstration, look at how I applied my approach when I started with Haitian Creole in my log- M ta renmen ...
