Hours needed to "maintain" a language

Hi everyone! I studied French for a long time during high school and through the university level, and I would like to keep this as an active language but I don't feel any particular need to improve it at this time and would like to focus on other languages. In your experience, how much time per wee...

Re: Gotta Catch'em All

I've been working a lot on my languages lately, but I can feel myself getting too disorganized because I want to do everything at once, so I'm going to try to set more attainable goals for myself. Spanish: Talk to my Puerto Rican friend only in Spanish. Also try to talk via voice message instead of ...

Re: Basque Group 2017

This is so awesome! I'm really fascinated by Basque, both by the way it sounds and the relative mystery surrounding its origins. I've always sort of admired it from afar but never really buckled down to look into learning it. All these resources are amazing! I never would have been able to find them...

Gotta Catch'em All

Hi everyone! I figured that since I'm new to the forum I'd start a language log as a good way to keep myself more dedicated to studying my languages (you've all definitely inspired me to work a lot harder! :D ) I've had a lot of wanderlust recently (Arabic, Greek, Cherokee... so many cool languages ...

Re: Rounding out the Romance languages

If a comparative grammar would help, try http://www.nativlang.com/romance-languages. A book version is also apparently available from Amazon. I remember seeing a textbook I really liked many years ago that aimed to teach all the Romance languages (or at least their basic grammar) as a group to Engl...

Rounding out the Romance languages

Hello everyone! For those of you that have studied multiple Romance languages, what did you find was the best way to study? I'm pretty happy with my level of Spanish and French right now and would like to work more on Italian and Portuguese but I'm a little bit worried about interference. I think my...

Re: From what point is it safe to start another language?

I'm in the same boat as you, I've learned French and Spanish for a long time but would like to improve some other languages that I've dabbled in and get them to a similar level (while still maintaining/improving the languages I already have). What I've picked up so far is that as long as you have a ...

Re: Chmury - Un Cielo Claro

Estoy completamente de acuerdo con iguanamon. Lorca también tiene muchas buenas obras de teatro. He leído La Casa de Bernarda Alba en la universidad, y también he oído buenas cosas sobre Yerma y Bodas de Sangre (ese título me parece lo más interesante, voy a ver si puedo encontrar un PDF y leerlo ah...
