Thank you, Montmorency, this made me laugh
And I'll use all the good advice by Tiia soon, and tackle the word again!
For now, I am keeping the group pace this week.
I will add some "Free form" Speechlinging, focusing on a very nice, small, and heavy book "Kompakt wissen: Anatomie,Physiologie,Erkrankungen", there is no better way to learn the terminology of the medicine basics. And it will be a fun challenge to pronounce well stuff like "Basalzellschicht" or "Erregungsleitungssystems"
And I've picked my first tv series, to be started after DaF kompakt: The Supernatural. It is loooong (that's a huuuge advantage), fantasy, perhaps not top quality, but still looks fun and interesting. Some reviews say it is a fantasy soap opera, sounds great for an intermediate learner.
I've watched some series in French recently (Canal+ subscription. really, I would love to give up any piracy, but only if I could just watch everything without geoblocking within the EU, not sure whether this will work after I move out
). Actually, i have a few SCs going, no? Here are my opinions:
Le Bureau des Legendes: awesome! I binge watched. And I felt like starting Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, Kurdi, and every other language appearing. There were a few bits of Hebrew, which is my next project. The series is excellent, adventurous, surprising at times, the character relatable, the theme of a secret service (and not in a James Bond fashion) is very intriguing and fascinating. I loved it. I think an intermediate learner might find it mostly accessible, sometimes challenging. An advanced learner's brain will definitely soak some high quality input from this. 2500 minutes total.
La Flamme: This is a parody of the reality shows with people finding "love". It is hilarious, and doesn't hesitate to make fun of stuff like racism, ignorance, stupidity, intolerance, handicap acceptation in the society, greed, and so on. And it has a unique happy end! Easier than BdL, I'd say, and excellent for colloquial stuff. 9x30 min, so 270min
Seraphim: a Canadian court metrage series, bilingual, approximately 50:50, not bad. Canal+ doesn't have the last episode!!! That was really annoying, I don't know how it ends. I don't recommend it. It is not bad, but it is nothing you haven't seen or read before.
I've also watched two dubbings, because the original prouction is a bit limited in some genres, but excellent in quality. Ghosted (16x20 min), that was fun (a partilly parodic take on all the Xfiles, Fringe, and similar series), too bad it didn't get renewed, so the viewers didn't get most answers. Taboo (8x50 min) was fun. I like this kind of mysteries in a historical setting. But again, mostly nothing you haven't seen or read yet, if you're a bit familiar with the genre, but not in the "hey, it's meant to remind you of this or that classic" way. Both are very good options for a learner interested in dubbings, so an intermediate or higher intermediate, and/or trying to just consume more stuff in non English. Btw What We do in the Shadows is unwatchable for me in dubbing.
Right now, I am amusing myself with wonderful Kaboul Kitchen, and trying le Baron Noir (mixed feelings about this one)
And yes, I should watch in other languages.
