Re: The iguana's tale- Portuguese, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Ladino

...PKD is a very uneven author and High Castle may be his best book, but that book has the same kind of depth as stuff by Dostoyevsky, Mishima, and Pelevin. Oh, I totally agree! There's a lot more going on here than just the Allies losing WW II. The backstory of how he wrote the novel is fascinatin...

Re: The iguana's tale- Portuguese, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Ladino

Re: The inevitable (?) plateau

The thing is, you don't need to talk about the kitchen sink until you do. That's the problem with most of us who aren't living in a TL country and are learning/have learned a language. To get to kitchen sink level vocabulary you have to have had experience with daily life problems in the language. O...

Re: Portuguese learning plan - what level will I be?

First, welcome to the forum, fresh_air. Portuguese is probably my favorite language. "Fluency" is a term that can mean many things. You can be "fluent" in certain situations and not in others. When I first started learning Spanish many years ago, I got to where I became "flu...

Re: Seeking advice

Welcome to the forum, TrioLinguist! One of my pet peeves here is incomplete information. Your profile shows that you are not a native-speaker of English. I wonder what your native language is? Anyway, about reading. You can't go wrong with emk's advice. One thing that often gets overlooked by learne...
