Re: The Memory Thread

A few more things I've just thought of... Having a rough idea of the meanings of prefixes and suffixes might be helpful. Thinking of a context that is personal to you, e.g if you wear glasses, then the sentence je porte des lunettes (and also picturing that) will help you remember porter . A few mon...

Re: The Effectiveness of Electronic Media vs Paper Media

The flickering of a screen backlight can have a negative effect on brain function, including the creation and recall of memories. Artificial room lighting can have the same effect, rendering paper media less effective. I'm sure I read somewhere that fluorescent lighting induces a stress response in ...

Re: The Memory Thread

Context is best for me - being able to get a sense of the meaning from whatever's going on. If I can link it to a visual, even better. If a word has many definitions, I no longer try to learn all of them at once. For example, I'm currently using LWT, and I just put in the most common definition, plu...

Re: Ingaræð's Yellow Brick Road (DE/FR/RU...)

I want to put reineke's great post on comprehension and CEFR levels in my log for future reference. Last September I did the Dialang reading test for French and German, and got C1 and A2 respectively. Either Dialang Beta was having an off-day, or my test-taking skills are awesome. :D In terms of the...

Re: Ingaræð's Yellow Brick Road (DE/FR/RU...)

Well, that's defintitely a step up from playing Spyro the Dragon in French and pretending that it's productive... :oops: :lol:

Seriously, though, all your intensive receptive-skills work seems like semi-immersion, which has to be a good thing!

Re: Ingaræð's Yellow Brick Road (DE/FR/RU...)

New French with Ease 113/113 :D I finally finished the NFWE passive wave yesterday! It was getting to be a bit of a drag, which is one reason I'm not going to do an active wave right now. The cultural notes were useful, but on the whole it wasn't as enjoyable as FwT. Maybe I should have carried on w...

Re: Assimil mp3 CD "lyrics" metadata?

No worries. Personally, I prefer EasyTag - I find it more flexible and more user-friendly for manipulating common tags, amongst other things. I doubt that there are any universally perfect programs in Linux, particularly for multimedia. In my experience, it usually a case of having program X, which ...

Re: Assimil mp3 CD "lyrics" metadata?

The lyrics are stored in the 'unsyncedlyrics' tag. Exaile will display the lyrics, which you can easily copy/paste into something else. Only have the 'Lyrics Viewer' plugin enabled, otherwise it automatically searches online first and slows things down. Puddletag will display the lyrics in 'stored t...

Re: THE FORUM HAS BEEN HACKED - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Thanks for the warning!

Stupid question: I'm assuming they have usernames (as part of the login data), but did they also get email addresses?
