Re: Shamelss self promoting. Your Blogs and websites.

Great idea! Mine is onelittleexplorer.wordpress.com. I blog about mostly theoretical aspects of music and pretty much anything else related.

Re: Books you never finished

My first thought when I saw the title was that I had hardly any, but then I got to thinking and realised I have quite a list. There are couple that I enjoyed but just got distracted from: - A Clockwork Orange - Foucault's Pendulum and then others that I just didn't like very much: - North and South ...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Wow, thanks Monika! At my university in Australia I pay about AU$2600 (about EUR2000 according to google), which doesn't really include anything other than classes, domestic students do get an interest free loan from the government for these fees though, which is usually paid back through tax. That ...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Really interesting discussion going on here! I wish I knew more about languages to contribute, I'm sure I will soon enough. I still have a couple of months before I need to make a decision so I'm think for now I'll just let things simmer away in the background. My grandmother recently suggested lear...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Thanks for your insight Monica. Judging by your experience I think I may be better off with something less... confusing :P At the moment I'm leaning towards Arabic, but who knows, my preference seems to change every other day. I still have a few months to decided. Thanks for all the good ideas in th...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Thanks Monika! I really appreciate the fantastic depth you've gone into those articles were very informative too. You've definitely made me think twice about Chinese, mainly because the script sounds immensely frustrating. Of course I'm still greatly intrigued by it. As for the tones that was part o...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Thanks Monika, I think I'm going to go the unfamiliar route. I'm leaning towards either Chinese or Arabic. I have three months before the semester starts so I think I'll do some research into their respective cultures, watch some films, find some poetry etc. Hopefully then I'll be able to make my mi...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

Thanks for you in depth response! I really appreciate your suggestions. I'm actually living in Australia so the proximate languages are probably slightly different to the US. I do tend to lean towards the essoteric so I actually am interested in Ancient languages but I'd like to learn something with...

Re: How should I choose a second language?

My university offers Arabic, Aramaic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew (Classical and Modern), Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Modern Greek, Pali, Sanskrit, Spanish and Syriac, as well as Ancient Greek and Latin. At the moment I don't envisage myself using it in any context other than personal...

How should I choose a second language?

Hi all. I'm planning to start studying linguistics next year and as I have some extra credit points to fill out the semester I thought studying a language about. The problem is that studying a language is something that I'm very enthusiastic about, but I don't have any inclination towards one langua...
