I already write a lot at HTLAL and there's not much new to be said here (if any), but it's wise to keep another log for a mixed audience. Today I'm taking the day 'off' from my study routine as I usually do at weekends (the exception being the previous weekend and this really made me really tired). I am trying to find people to practice my languages, joined Skype and sharedtalk but no answers. Will take the day to watch some films and read non-language stuff for the moment. I have most of my languages at a close intermediate level now, after starting 4 at once, insanely. The late 2012 and 2013 had been troublesome as I had so many languages for which I had already been through the early euphoria of meeting up new language structures but still hadn't reached the phase at which I could start enjoying the content they provide. Well, that's still better than a past of dabbling, 14 to 08 years ago where I didn't know nowadays' techniques - there wasn't even the culture of discussing techniques - and therefore only wasted time, making little progress. Now I have some chriteria for adding more languages. I separate them between languages I have a good vocabulary discount for and languages I have to start from scratch. I take no more than 4 languages at once at a textbook stage, but when I decide to drop textbooks and do native material only, I consider there's a slot open. Currently I'm studying Mandarin, Russian, Estonian and German from textbooks. Once I realize German textbooks aren't teaching me much, I will start a new vocabulary-discoutn language, which will be either Spanish or Italian. Same goes for Russian, but now with a language from scratch (either Turkish or Indonesian). My latest addition was Estonian in May 28th, once I finished all of the Georgian textbooks I got in hand (I must say it was rather a lack of more textbooks + a laziness about reviewing stuff, because I'm far from mastering the Georgian grammar and I still haven't reached a comfortable reading level, even though I can function as a tourist).
