Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

OK, well finally something to report that isn't just "nerd, nerd, nerd, anki." Today I had my first iTalki tutor session. I've had money in the iTalki account for awhile now but never really did anything with it. At the moment I have more time on my hands, so I decided to burn my way throu...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Damn! I really need to do more stuff. Not really anything to report. My French is still poor. For some unknown reason, everyone in Italy seems to want to talk to me know that I'm focusing on French. I am getting messages from all directions about Italian. Going by what Tarvos and others have said yo...
