So I’ve been getting things done as usual. Also, I’ve started watching this new series called “Sherlock”, based on the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but based on the 21st century. It’s really cool and the first season (3 episodes of 90 minutes) can be found in German!
I also wrote a bunch of short stories on lang-8. I just LOVE putting the corrected sentences on my flashcards and learning from them. Also, I feel like my German writing ability has increased considerably .
I ran out of Animorphs books . There’s two reasons why I will probably not order more:
1. It’s only translated until the 30th, so I won’t be able to read the whole series (in German anyway).
2. Some of the books are considered rare, and therefore are quite expensive.
I’ve managed to get some German books on my iPhone about the adventures of a barbarian called Conan. I’ve read a little bit and the level might be slightly higher than what I’m used to, but it’s not that high . So that’s what I’m planning to read next unless I find something else (I’m also thinking about reading Kafka).
By the way, I’ve gotten the first review on my LangUp app. It’s a 5-star review from a russian person, who says he would recommend (at least according to google translate… ^_^). So cool!
To finalize this post, I want to share an extensive list of resources to learn German & Japanese that I found today. LOTS of stuff there:
