TED, DL and the big wide world.
I had been trying to learn Italian, for some time before I came across DL! I'd been using (and still do to some extent) various books, computer courses, etc... [And since joining DL, I've started evening classes too] BUT..... nothing comes close to DL...It is, (to quote a DL lesson) 'Il mio pane quotidiano.'
(Only full immersion could be better.)
BUT I'd never have found it, had it not been for a tiny article in 'The Sun' (about 1 inch tall) - Britain's most popular paper, sadly not its best!
BUT I'd never have understood what DL was about until I saw Luis' talk at TED, and laughed my head off!
I think the TED video, should be made compulsory (or at least noticeable) viewing for all new DL users... Again, I only came across it by chance. Can it not be made a 'sticky' as some programs refer to? It should be essential viewing.
Ciao Luis and team!
si. è molto bueno! Your answer came about 5 seconds after I'd made my post. PS I'm now learning Spanish too!
