Re: French and Spanish Book Recommendations

I'm a language learner from the UK looking to improve my French and Spanish, one of the ways I was considering doing this was through reading! I find it difficult to find books that are suited to my level (B1-B2, middle ground) and that I enjoy enough to continue reading, I really enjoy gripping st...

Re: Difference between two Assimil French editions...?

The most recent edition for Assimil French was "New French with Ease" but this seems to have recently been superseded by another with a new cover: "French S.P.". https://www.amazon.ca/New-French-ease-Collectif/dp/2700502299/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1494878626&sr=8-7&ke...

Re: Karen's Spanish learning journey

I am interested in trying Subs2SRS but my computer broke and it will be a long time before I feel the need to get a new one. I have anki on my backup laptop but it is not powerful enough to do anything other than Netflix and basic web browsing. I'll have to give subs2SRS a try someday, I like the i...

Re: Anecdotal evidence for extensive TV series

I'm doing a talk in Bratislava about using native materials such as TV, with Anki, and I'd like to pick up some anecdotal evidence regarding TV series watching.

Re: the Diaries of a Caffeinated Squirrel

But that attempt failed too, just like it failed before, and just like it will probably fail the next yea...

Re: the Diaries of a Caffeinated Squirrel

I tried a few channels to get feedback to my short German audio. I suppose the link on my log is more for my own purpose, to compare my future self to. I got some very short feedback on reddit. Not too useful in terms of pointing out what to work on (basically I should work on everything, I already...
