Welcome to the Exile. The drunk snail's journey got a new obstacle-htlal is down. I really hope everything is gonna be there when we are back online (YKYAALN is a treasure I'd miss enormously!) Why I'm continuing here asap: I have news and I'm afraid I'd forget them in the meantime. Really, can't the forums go down when I am too busy to continue with my languages? No, of course not! I suppose most people here are htlalers (by the way, it's totally a great word root. htlaler-member of htlal; to htlal-participate on the forum, read, write, procrastinate; htlaly-that could be an adjective: "that's a totally htlaly opinion") so no long introduction is needed. ASCR: Thanks god I'm keeping a separate word document with my list of movies and books completed! I should back it up somewhere! Had I lost that with my logs, I'd be desperate. ASCR news: French movies: 4 episodes of Engrenages, that's +2 movies French and English books: I wanted to finish a few. Instead, I started another. So, right now, I am somewhere in the middle of 7!!! books I'll sign up for the new SC, which starts the 1st May. I'll go for regular 100+100 for Spanish and German. French So many news! I passed my medical French exam with the best possible grade! Well, you could say it wasn't that hard but still! List of useful links for students, doctors and other medical professionals in need of French: wikinu.fr , especially the resources from Grenoble are awesome. Ppts with audio, I use them not only for the language value, they are awesome introductions to the topics. The anatomy isn't bad, the physiology is really good, biochemistry is quite good... and everything comes with nice schemes. And there's audio, you can study while ironing or something like that. Free youtube: there are some episodes of il était une fois...la vie available! not all of them. But they are awesome. The perfect introduction to the vocabulary concerning the human body. Free http://www-sante.ujf-grenoble.fr/SANTE/alpesmed/corpus.htm is awesome!!! and free! Francouzština pro lékaře: useful for czechs only but quite a good tool. Not expensive Le français des médecins by PUG, really good for the communication situations you may encounter during your internship or when doing your job. Videos included. Quite expensive Santé-médecine.com by CLE. like the previous one but shorter and with les material. Not expensive And there are several tv series located in hospitals including original French ones but I didn't have time for those.
