Learning Chinese - Mandarin, French, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai

For 2019, I want to: 

1) Finish writing my Tagalog Grammar book and put it up on this site. 

2) Get my Tagalog to a strong B2 (it's a weak B2 at the moment)

3) Get my Swahili to a strong B2 (I'm a false beginner, former B1 with 3 years of immersion ending 17 years ago)

4) If I have any time left, do a spurt in either Russian, French or Japanese, whichever I want the most at the time

5) as always, maintain my other languages

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

I think being able to read favorite books in their original texts is one of the things that motivates me to learn new languages.

So does Alexander Arguelles, an inspiration to many of us.


Interesting. A lot of my friends run in the Singapore academic cycles - weird that I've not come across this guy.


His alternative system for assessing language reading literacy is also quite interesting for those who are more inclined towards reading.

I'm sure a lot gets lost in translation the way we narrate in literature is very different to how we speak publicly
