Re: How many languages can you keep at a high level?

I have a friend who can speak 8 languages at either a native or C1 level, he is pretty remarkable though. :) Which languages? I am always curious to know if it is a very diverse range or a closely related group. Not that one makes the achievement less grand than another, both scenarios present thei...

Re: I need a native English speaker text critique

Meantime I'm happy to just copy and paste what you wrote, along with my comments, here if you don't mind it being public. Steve Steve just reply to this post th...

GoGoFelix1, you should be able to use PMs now. I'll send you one as a test. Let me know if you do not receive it.

Re: The countries: good or bad things

DaveBee you have a point but I raise you Galaxy Caramel! I am also in a Twirl phase, good chocolate would make a Twirl too rich but the mediocrity of Kraft's version of Cadbury's chocolate is just right for it.

Re: The countries: good or bad things

I mean, I didn't have much culture shock, except british chocolate is low quality haha. Is it Cadbury's that you've had?

Re: LLorg/HTLAL in-person meetup event

I kind of like the idea of LLOrg badges. Hats. T-shirts. A secret handshake! (OK, that was maybe enough coffee for today. Time to switch to herbal tea.) xztwQeZoBKs :shock: Maybe I should stick to learning Finnish. It's probably easier. I've tripped up the stairs already today and walked into a wal...
