Re: Xenops Mostly Tackles French (and some other languages)

I'm adjusting to "working" forty hours a week again, and trying to figure out the best times to study. For a while I would get home, eat, and feel the need to go directly to bed; I learned that if I drink enough during the day, and have a light dinner, I do not have this problem. Restraint...

Re: Korean - from scratch to B2 in one year

Congrats on getting that B2 in Korean. :) Did you ever happen to make a log recording your Japanese learning? I'm not finding it here nor on the HTLAL site. If you're talking to me, I haven't reached B2 in Korean yet, but I still have 4 months to go. I don't have a Japanese log. My apologies, I tho...

Re: Xenops Mostly Tackles French (and some other languages)

Thank you for the visit and the correction. :) I'm not sure how to make the center dot on American keyboards (or even foreign ones?) I went to Wikipedia English version to search "Margaret Thatcher", then went to the Japanese version of that and got "マーガレット・ サッチャー". To find out ...

Re: Is RhinoSpike Dead?

I don't mind making recordings for other people, and that's what I started doing. Neither do I. That's what I used to do. It's when I have to do recordings for people and pay money in order to download recordings I've requested, that I feel it becomes unfair. Imagine if on Lang-8 you corrected for ...

Re: Xenops Mostly Tackles French (and some other languages)

マーガレット・ サッチャー Margaret Thatcher Note the solid and centre-aligned 中黒 dot. If you use the JLPT katakana word list to practise katakana, you can learn katakana, transliteration and JLPT vocab at the same time. Thank you for the visit and the correction. :) I'm not sure how to make the center dot on A...

Re: Is RhinoSpike Dead?

The site was never super active, but I used to use it quite a lot. Then they introduced charging for downloading recordings, which turned me off completely. In actual fact I'm not against paying, it's just that if you pay for the recording none of that money goes to the person who spent the effort ...
