Hey the link is broken for me, it directs me to:
changing it to:
fixes the issue:)
Thank you, I’ve removed the spurious ‘-’ from the story URL.
It’s still there? EDIT: also, a missing ‘a’:
Ooof, I messed that up, I guess. I put in a redirect for the two URLs (the one with the extra - and the one with the missing a). Hope that resolves it.
Thank you, I’ve corrected the story URL again, this time with less PEBCAK.
Maybe you could briefly describe your language learning method? I’m always interested to hear that. 🙂
This is a pretty good summary of the method he mentioned: https://tim.blog/2014/07/16/how-to-learn-any-language-in-record-time-and-never-forget-it/.
I’m kind of skeptical of the importance of using pictures over translations and I also think learning massive amounts of vocabulary is very underrated by seemingly everyone in the language learning world, so I’d disagree on stopping at ~2000 words.
Yeah, the method I am sticking with recommends cramming about 650 words of vocab (plus whatever you need after that), and then lighting up the grammar portion - forming sentences and stuff, and then practicing with a native speaker. These latter two parts are easy to underestimate in importance, and I found it super tempting to just declare victory once you know 2000 words (but couldn’t yet understand or make myself understood).
So, yeah, ups and downs (:
I used anki to memorize my credit card numbers and find that very useful as I used to feel extremely annoyed by online payments, in addition anything and everything else I want to remember. I haven’t read many papers but the few I have I threw the authors names and year of publication into anki so I can sound smart citing them.
