Re: Stelle's log (mostly Spanish and Italian, with forays into Esperanto and Tagalog)

Stelle wrote:I have a copy of Io Non Ho Paura, which I think will be my first "real" book. Have you read it?

I bought a copy of that in Florence and haven't opened it yet. That settles it. You just let me know when you feel ready and we can go on that adventure together! :)

Re: LLorg London 2017

It's ok guys, I understand.

Re: Stelle's log (mostly Spanish and Italian, with forays into Esperanto and Tagalog)

Buona sera Stelle! Welcome back! I'm so happy to see that you're focusing on Italian now. I am hoping that your never-ending enthusiasm will persuade me to study the language more actively than I have ever done. I really want to make progress but I am just not as disciplined as you when it comes to ...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Ok, so there have not been any monumental changes thus far on the language front, but I have started doing a quick, 20 minute long beginners' exercise routine every couple of days, so I guess that's a step (and a lunge, and an attempt at a push-up) in the right direction. :P I have made some more ba...

Re: LLorg London 2017

So, is this still happening? I would like to book my hotel and train tickets some time soon, to spend as little as possible, but I want to make sure that there'll be someone to spend the weekend with first! :lol:

Re: Spanish Group

I don't know whether these videos have been mentioned before, but I have to share them with you all, because I can't stop watching them for some reason. :lol: The videos are of 5 women (one each from Spain, Chile, Venezuela, Colombia and Argentina) discussing various topics and comparing the names t...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Ok, it's time for decisive action. For some time, I have been lazily attempting to get a grip on my life and make it something I can be proud of. Now, as things seem to be slowly fitting together (or at least, I'm feeling particularly motivated), I feel it is time to start managing my non-work time ...

Re: Spanish Group

Thanks for all the recommendations everyone. You're right, iguanamon. After 1984 I need something a bit more cheerful :) Edit: After MorkTheFiddle mentioned García Márquez, I remembered that I had a copy of Crónica de una muerte anunciada packed away somewhere, so I dug it out and I'm going to read ...

Re: Spanish Group

I know we have a thread dedicated to this in the Spanish sub-forum, but I feel like we need to breathe a bit of life into this study group/resource collection so I thought I would ask the question here. What are you all reading in Spanish right now? I am looking for something short, ligero and, if p...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Looks like GoalTracker is Android-only? Oh is it? I had no idea... :oops: Actually, I just went back to the website I found the app on, and it is actually called Strides, which is available on IOS, but when I searched for Strides on the play store, GoalTracker came up... :roll: Maybe they changed t...
