Tadoku SPLASH

Its coming again for the month of October! So go forth and  set yourselves up if you haven’t already. For those who saw my sad pathetic attempts on the mini trial last month, hopefully you’ll not see that again. Granted this time, I will not be in all out throws of wedding mania from a … Continue reading

Experiments: Vampire Language P5

All’s Well that Ends Well so, the next day I decided several things about the blog and language learning. I asked myself questions, studied of course, and decided that I didn’t like what I had been doing all this time. But now I was so discombobulated, I didn’t know what to change first. So one … Continue reading

Experiments: Vampire Language P4

Day 2 Bust and a Day 3 Revolution Day two of my Esperanto experience I woke up with a massive headache and depression. I was feeling pretty low about the major recent discoveries and hadn’t quite worked them out, I hadn’t yet thought of them positive, but i was trying and the headache was awful. … Continue reading

Experiments: Vampire Language P3

  Esperanto Setup and Day One I’m a firm believer of at least having a guideline of expected accomplishments, goals, or whatever have you written down and marked up for learning. Timeboxing in itself is great, but if you have no idea what you’re going to do in that time frame, then it doesn’t really … Continue reading

Fluent in 3 Months Mention

I thought I might mention Benny officially here on the blog. As a duel thing. For one, Benny is now officially taking on Japanese. I’m excited about it, and I can’t wait to see how things progress for him. Secondly I’ve mentioned Benny here and there but haven’t really shared much about his style. See … Continue reading

Experiments: Vampire Language P2

You too can speak from day 1! PS: But only if you believe in yourself It sounds too good to be true, that in three months you could learn a language to fluencyishness and keep doing this. It does sound toooooo good but truth is, people are doing it. Not just Benny, but a good … Continue reading

Experiments: Vampire Language! P1

Experiments are fun! Mikoto here, Though covered very briefly beforehand by Daniel and Myself in passing for LWT online, I decided that Benny’s method for language learning should be tackled at least once as a passive curiosity (What can I say, i love to get sidetracked with experiments). But how can one tackle a language … Continue reading

I Know What I Did Last Summer

Hello everyone, it’s really great to be back after quite a summer! As you may remember, I took a hiatus from making new posts over this hot and humid time of year. But I certainly took a lot of notes during that time! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the topics I want to … Continue reading

Little Update

Still working on some of the background stuff, you can see we’ve played a bit with the design already, and well they’re free designs and they look just like that hahaha. Since I try to keep everything free as possible, I might get my hands dirty in some CSS, or something, not sure, but that’s … Continue reading

Big Changes

I just would like to let everyone know that in about a months time, the blog will go down temporarily for restructuring and what not. It will be back, with hopefully a clearer layout, updated links, and a restructuring of the pages. Our lost in action writer Delenir will be back, and ready to bombard … Continue reading
