Re: Esperanto Study Group

It's amazing how many people have added themselves within the first 24 hours - there are more than 1 000 new users already :) The closest one to me is still 300 km away though. And my mobile is too old. I had to put it on my tablet instead. I'm going to have to consider getting a new mobile one of ...

Re: Brun Ugle makes plans and then ignores them – diary of an easily distracted tortoise 2017 (ES, DE, FI, EO, JA, NO)

I've almost caught up to you on Clozemaster for Finnish/English! Yay! (I'm 100% certain my stats are much worse than yours though!) I'm not so sure how well those stats really work. I think there must be a bug somewhere because I see cathrynm has something like 20 000 points overall for the week, b...

Re: Esperanto Study Group

Amikumu just launched today. It's an app to help you find speakers of your target language in your area. It's only for Esperanto right now, but they will have all languages later.

Re: Super Challenge Bot Enhancements

I know it's not funny but :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Also, it began with this tweet . Basically please ensure you don't put @langchallenge inside the quotation marks. A quick fix for rdearman would be to remove all pending tweets before the bot can reply to itself. It reminds me of the sci...

Re: Super Challenge Bot Enhancements

The bot seems to be hanging in an endless loop ... Can you send me the link to the page you're trying to see? It seems fine to me. Go to Twitter. It keeps replying to itself, saying "you're not studying that language," about three or four times every five minutes. It still works though an...

Re: Radioclare's 2017 log (Croatian/Russian)

So far Tom has been very boring in my courses. I don't think he's done anything more exciting than go to work.

Re: Languid Language Learning

Maybe we should start a Jane Austen book club. We pick a book and everyone reads it in whatever language they want. I have a few e-books in various languages already downloaded and ready to go.

Re: The Polyglot Gathering, Bratislava 2017

I've decided not to bother learning Slovak because I'm not really capable of using languages unless I know them to a reasonably high level. The hardest parts of communication for me are exactly the things that people usually learn first -- things like greetings and parting phrases. I still have trou...

Re: 6WC 6 Week Challenge - May 2017

I'll sign up, probably with Finnish again, or maybe I should do German again. I'm surely not above B1 yet. And it would be more useful than Finnish at the moment. Decisions, decisions.

In any case, my score will plummet like a meteor when I leave for Bratislava towards the end of May.
