A late-20s university grad living in the Bay Area.
Aspiring polyglot with Spanish and Japanese under my belt. My eyes are set for French, German, Italian, and Hawai'ian. I often get distracted from my language learning. You can find me as 'moon_goddess' on Memrise, or DM me for Lang-8 or Busuu contact information.
My obsessive-compulsions include stopping the microwave only when the time remaining is divisible by five and reading the fine print on commercials.
My first sip of tea was out of my baby bottle. I make one of the best cuppas you’ll ever taste.
Gavin annunciated an English* phoneme last night while I was reading my current book (“A Visit From The Goon Squad”) to him. I got all teary-eyed and congratulated him.
Parenthood has made me into a sap. :P At least I’m capable of crying [outside of shows or movies] again.
*I read to Gavin in Spanish and Japanese as well.*
I also let him listen to my Memrise in Mandarin, French, German, and the other two aforementioned languages. He also listens to K-Pop and French Hip Hop on Songza.
I’m all for exposure to help his linguistic plasticity.
I really like #Duolingo but their app crashed so much I had to delete it. I tried the site on my laptop instead and that keeps crashing.
I’m starting to lose the momentum from my polyglot tag exploration…
Two years after my first round, 62 points out of 150 - only 25 questions right out of 50. I did slightly worse than before.
Japanese: 41 points/150 - 18/50 questions. Consistent considering I have placed my studies on hold.
Meh… could have done a lot better.
