Re nice programmes.

For French I like Louis la Braconte. Bad Eggs appear in the storylines just to provide Louis with someone who needs his help. He then gets everyone else to help them too.

It also has a Citroen H van, and some nice scenery! :-)

I’m always looking for new series! Watching TV is basically my only hobby at the moment, and I always need more ideas!

Good news! Deutschland 89 has finished filming and is in post-production! Yay!

Disappointed to hear that a third season of Shtisel was due to begin filming, but was halted by the pandemic. Such a good show.

That's too bad, I really enjoyed the first two seasons and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of Yiddish they put in.

I miss my language hobby. I tried reading a French book. Nope, still don’t have the attention span for that. But I think I can click things, and I love the soothing repetition of learning at the A1 level. So I’ve resurrected my Irish Memrise course from way back. It’s based off of Buntus Cainte, and I allegedly know almost 300 words! (Not hardly, but it’s fun nevertheless.)

They now let you skip the typing questions which is delightful, but I do try to do them when I feel up to it. The user interface is very pretty now. It’s a shame their own language courses were always underwhelming...

So now I’ve jumped into the Duolingo Irish course. I’d previously heard bad things, but there aren’t many accessible Irish resources so I figured it was worth a try. I love it. But wow, I really feel for the casual language learner who decides to dabble in Irish... If this wasn’t my fifth or six Indo-European language.... If I didn’t know VSO was a thing... If I hadn’t forked out for Duolingo Pro... The course is opaque enough you really need to be comfortable trying things out and making mistakes. It’s a great way to learn, except when you are constrained by the inane heart system. (I hadn’t touched Duolingo in awhile and my goodness that was a nasty surprise!)
