Re: FSI German: Too Old?

... For example, I've read somewhere that "gnädige Frau" is not used today ... It seems that we have managed to register yet another round of the ritual -- and trivial -- disparaging of the FSI German Basic course. For the record, I was quoting someone else's question. "Gnädige Frau&...

Re: The Polyglot Gathering, Bratislava 2017

You don't need to - many people won't be able to speak Slovak - but it won't go amiss obviously. Although I don't think I'm learning Slovak either. I speak Czech though. Well, to a degree. Oh, it was mostly tongue-in-cheek, Slovak isn't a target language for me and all I am thinking of doing is cra...

Re: How to use Assimil Perfectionnement series?

I use the Perf. Allemand material. Like you said: passive / active wave & any vocal or struggling gets put into an Anki deck. Because this material is more advanced, I also use it for longer shadowing - where a single dialog will be used over two or more days of listen and repeat. I tried enteri...

Re: LWT and current work

Although I have to say, importing text into LWT is a bit clunky. Maybe I am not doing it right. Will continue to fiddle with it. I found the latest version not to be bad at importing. Used to have to chunk up the text into small pieces yourself, now it will chop it up for you. :) I still don't use ...

Re: Reading Le Monde - HELP!!!!

At the risk of being called elitist, well, here goes. French is a language that is not English and allows for a longer sentence structure in the standard vernacular. The idea that Le Monde should write to an audience expecting an editorial style with shorter sentence structure is an anglicisme . The...

LWT and current work

So after reading a bit around here - I discovered the tool LWT (Learning with Text) that many here seem to use and decided to install it. Took me all of 10 minutes on a Mac following the instructions here: http://lwt.sourceforge.net and with MAMP as my web server. Have I used this before? It seems v...
