Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Lately I have been trying to brush up on my French as it has been a few years since I've spoken it at all and I'm considering moving out there for 6 months to a year soon (depending on how much money I can save) to immerse myself in the language and maybe finally become fluent in it. For a really long time I have wanted to become fluent in another language but I have only managed to study it intermittently over the last few years and I have never spent more than a month at a time there so I end up forgetting a lot of what I have learned. At the moment I am going back through all of my old A-level French coursebooks, listening to podcasts and reading books but I am missing something that lets me practice having a conversation. I was wondering if anybody here knows of any podcasts or CDs that I could use that contain half of a conversation (or something equally helpful) so that I could really get up to speed listening and formulating responses quickly. At the moment I'd like to stick to Intermediate level stuff, and ideally it would be cheap (or free). I can't afford to spend a lot of money on something like Fluenz French as it would put me back more than a month in terms of savings.
Thank you H&A.
