Q: When is the best time to "park" a language?
A: Parking is not permitted on weekends. Parking bans are also often instituted in case of inclement weather.
Q: Simplified Chinese?
A: Clearly not simplified enough for me.
A: That's not a question. Unless you're trying to ask "How does one ask questions in simplified Chinese", in which case one would be advised to rephrase.
Q: Would these materials cover most of the vocabulary and grammar of the 4 volumes of FSI?
A: If you had the FSI course digitally, say on a thumbdrive, it wouldn't take more than a piece of paper to cover it. If you have it all in four print volumes, however, it would require a good bit more resources to successfully cover all those books.
Q: Which and how many languages are spoken in your family?
A: Related ones
Q: Persian definite and indefinite articles, or lack thereof?
A: Definitely.
Q: How do you communicate with your pet?
A: Poorly
