    Re: What a neverending debt.

    Suddenly there's Japanese lesson here?

    Reminds me that I've neglected my Japanese for so long. I guess I've completely forgotten kana by now (unless the kana used for my name). I can only remember few kanji. I'm even not sure that I still remember all of hiragana. I'm limited to speaking a bit of basic Japanese. I already reached N3 and just because I neglected it, I'm sure my level has gone down now...

    Gosh, and I still haven't continue my other languages lessons. This is what English has done to me. I learned Italian but all I can manage now is Italian-accented English.

    Tae Kim's website is a good way to learn Japanese grammar for free. Of course it does not cover every grammar within Japanese language, nonetheless it's very reliable considering that it's free. The pay-per-lesson site, did you mean Textfugu?
    Ahh.

    Yeah, I checked it out for a bit, but seems like not really what I wanted. No, not Textfugu. Have you ever heard of JapanesePod101? It has podcasts, some kind of short textbook for each lesson, and kanji practice related to the lesson.

    It's basically an intensive assignment. Since you have way more hours available, as well as all resources you can think of, more is expected of you, naturally. I pretty much finished after 3 hours like a normal exam here usually consists of, and would have likely gotten a decent grade from it in that case. But I had to polish it for hours to make it good in terms of being a home exam.
    I understand. We use that kind of system here but not for exam though, so yeah, lot more is expected from students. ^^;

    Yeah. exactly my case. I've forgotten some hiragana, most katakana, and yet now trying to learn more kanji. Meh, haha~ XD Let's start again! Though with our schedule it's rather.. hard. XD

    Italian-English is so easy to fake. I've pretended being Italian a ton of times. If I on top of that make my name Nino instead of Nuno people fall right for the exchange student story. For some reason people see Nino as Italian, lol, but I usually roll with Nuno. Most don't know any difference.

    Indeed. I've planned to take lessons again but... I blame my lecturers for not giving me time to learn other languages.

    Playing the Assassins Creed games provides a ton of free practice in Italian-English.

    I can't pretend to be Italian. My face looks too Asian.
    I think I'd like to hear Norwegian.

    Ah yes. I like to imitate Caterina Sforza's dialogue.

    Re: What a neverending debt.

    I've heard about the podcast, own some seasons too, but I think Textfugu is better if you want to understand Japanese from the very basic.


    Oh, and I mastered my Italian-English by watching all the episodes of The Sopranos within two weeks.

    Well I can. The only thing I lack is a good moustache, but other than that I look exactly like a typical Southern-European.

    When I speak to someone I don't know, they usually ask me if I'm from Spain. I assume they do because of my looks and because Spain is the most "common" place someone with my looks would be from. Can't expect the average person to know that Nuno is a typical Portuguese name.

    Is that so... It pays as well, though, so yeah. I thought the style of Textfugu didn't really match me.

    Well, Portuguese and Spanish are similar. *shrug*

    By the way, right now I'm hearing foreigners speaking so fast outside my room. I don't recognize the language but I guess it's European. So many diverse languages in Europe, eh?
