Tasty, I just wanted to drop by and mention that your French log on the old site really helped me several years ago. Then your Spanish, Italian and now German adventures have been very motivating. You have traveled from a monolingual (fellow Texan if I remember correctly) to a legitimate polyglot. A...
Hola mi gente! Well, México is just around the corner. I need a break from work and there are worse places to take a break than the sandy beaches of Mexico. My little listening experiment has come to an end. I have over 240 hours of listening in the last 100 days. What are my conclusions? I need a t...

I have started reading both El Conde de Montecristo and El Símbolo Perdido. I am reading both at the same time. I often do this when reading in E...

Do the courses make you happy? If so, continue the self-challenge of courses you have. If not...don't. I appreciate your log and contributions to the board. If you started a "Going Native" thread discussing your adventures with native materials then I would read it too. As far as the other...
I don't remember when my mother took away my pacifier but I must have felt like I do right now. I have made the decision to stop all subtitles and I feel a bit naked or exposed right now. In addition, I have stopped all listening while reading the text. I still read but I read for a couple of hours ...
