I've begun a project on my blog where I try out all the languages on Duolingo and write about my first impressions of the languages. I talk briefly about alphabet, pronunciation, grammar, and my overall impression. At the moment, I'm doing the languages available for English speakers, but as I study more Spanish, I'll give Catalan a try. I'm not talking about French, Spanish, or German, though. Those are the three I'm studying seriously at the moment.

I don't intend to spam the forums, so if you want to know the address, please let me know on my stream. If a moderator says it's okay if I share here, I will.

I did my first language today, and that's Irish. And I'm sure many of you know that Irish isn't the easiest language to learn. Let's just say that I failed to retain much of it, as I didn't do any review.

You could put your blog's URL in your profile, if you like. Then it won't get "lost" in the forums or in the depths of your stream.

Sounds interesting!

I found it. https://ireadencyclopedias.wordpress.com/2015/11/27/test-driving-languages-irish/

I used to read Encyclopedia Britannica when I was younger, and now I read Wikipedia virtually every day.

Well, there it is. I used to read World Book Encyclopedia when I was a kid. I also read Wikipedia every day.

I strongly encourage you to write what you are learning down on a piece of paper. In other words, take notes. That will make it not only easier to retain but easier to write a review later.

Definitely. I'll be working on notebooks for all the languages I study.
