OK, it's almost the end of the month. I think it's about time I started actually doing the languages on my TAC for this year. :lol: So here they are:

I'll start with Malayalam, as usual, but this time, I'll also try to do additional stuff with Malayalam. I'll make a personal thread, post on this Malayalee forum I haven't posted on since fucking September, keep reading this novel (I only have six chapters left! :shock:), and hopefully watch a few movies and actually, um, start reading the news. In various languages. Including Malayalam. (I think that's everything I was planning/hoping to do for Malayalam. Right? I'll go back and check my previous TAC later just to make sure).

Well, okay, at least that's the ideal scenario. :lol:

How goes the improving of your languages too?

1) There's no such tense in Italian.
2) Did you mean cercando (looking for)? If so it should be: non l'ho neanche cercato.

Yeah that's what I imagined, but we don't have such tense, in place of it we use various different tenses depending on the context.

Oh, yes i did mean "haven't been looking." To me "sono stato trovando" didn't sound right, but I hadn't known how i should word it. Thanks Ipse. Do you know where i might find help on how to express perfect progressives?

Thinking it twice, I would say it's actually easier than I initially imagined... :lol: I think 99% of the times you just have to use the passato prossimo (99% because I cannot totally exclude that there are some instances where you might need another tense but right now I cannot think of any such example).

I think I'm pretty much done with Malayalam this time around! (Well, as far as posting on UniLang is concerned, anyway :P). But getting back to this post:
vijayjohn wrote:I'll make a personal thread,

Done.
post on this Malayalee forum I haven't posted on since fucking September,

Hope to finally start doing this today
keep reading this novel (I only have six chapters left! :shock:),

Haven't done any more of this yet, unfortunately. Our Internet connection died for a few days starting literally the day after I made this post. Now I've had an uninterrupted connection for two days, but I haven't managed to get back into reading this book. Oh, well. I'll probably end up finishing it (much?) earlier than I originally thought I would anyway (i.e. I'll probably finish it well before summer starts :P).
and hopefully watch a few movies

Hope to start doing this, too. Dunno when though.
and actually, um, start reading the news.

Really should do this, but never made any plans for it!
In various languages. Including Malayalam.

Aïe. Let's start with Malayalam first. :P :lol:
(I think that's everything I was planning/hoping to do for Malayalam. Right? I'll go back and check my previous TAC later just to make sure).

Actually, no, not even close. But I think I'll start with something relatively small like what I just discussed here. :lol:

I'd say "time."
you just have to use the passato prossimo (99% because I cannot totally exclude that there are some instances where you might need another tense but right now I cannot think of any such example).

(For me, at least, it's not necessary to include "that there are" in that context and in fact sounds odd). You could also say, "I cannot totally exclude the possibility that in some instances, you might..."

OK, now at least I've made two posts on that forum. The last post was fairly long simply because I was trying to respond to various comments that people made there, but I managed to write it anyway, and somebody liked that post, too! :) So that's pretty cool. Oh, and I tried to start looking at news just before going to sleep, too, lol. I'll probably move on to French soon.

So I've been doing French for a few days now, but I think I'll briefly interrupt that for Thai because I'm getting a haircut tomorrow, and the lady who cuts my hair is Thai, so I always try to talk to her in Thai. :P :lol:

I would use "again" as well. I understand what Ipse means by "twice" and I agree Vijay that it doesn't sound as bad as "thinking it". So yeah it might not be ungrammatical, but I don't think I've ever heard someone say "thinking about it twice". I've heard things like "thinking about it again", "thinking about it some more", and "on second thought".

I personally don't think it sounds odd though I agree it's not necessary. For me, the difference sounds more like the difference between formal, "high" English versus casual, "low" English. Another example would be "I know that there is one around here" versus "I know there's one around here".

I'm so jelly* that you can speak to your hairdresser in her native language. I'm nowhere near comfortable in any of my languages to do that!

*Apologies for the use of slang. It's the newest slang term I've learned, so I wanted to try it out :D. (And if you're not sure what it means, it's short for jealous.)

Meh, she's been cutting hair for both of my parents and for my brother as well as for me ever since I was like 14. I was young and enthusiastic and would use any excuse to learn a language (actually, I'm probably even more likely to do that now than I used to be :lol:).
*Apologies for the use of slang. It's the newest slang term I've learned, so I wanted to try it out :D. (And if you're not sure what it means, it's short for jealous.)

Yeah, I know that. It's probably one of the most widely used slang terms there is on UniLang. :lol:

OK, so by now, I'm done with Malayalam and Thai, and I miiiiight be done with French, depending on how soon someone posts in the French forum before I move on to (I guess) German. :P

I guess I just wanted to take a moment to review what I have and haven't managed to do so far, as far as my stated objectives go. I'm still not totally sure whether I'm done with French yet, still haven't gotten any further with the novel I was reading in Malayalam, still haven't seen any movies, still haven't gotten a job, and still haven't added any new languages to my list. However...I've managed to make the most of the French forum here, I've already posted almost twice what I posted on that Malayalam forum before I left (so to speak), I've started reading the news in earnest in as many languages as possible, I'm trying to get a job, I made a personal thread (like I said before), and I secretly have picked a next language to study: Arabic. I'm not sure whether I'll start out with MSA or Levantine Arabic, but I'm sure it will be one or the other or both; we'll have to see, and I don't think I'll start until I'm actually done going through all the languages on my list this time around.

OK, so now, I can finally cross out both Malayalam and French, as I've moved on to German by now (of course, you can't see the list below, but oh well):

I also finally started reading a bit more of that novel, although I have to say, I really don't know how to count sometimes. I have fifteen chapters of it left to read, not five! :doh: (Well, okay, at this point, I have fourteen chapters and part of another). I also started watching a movie a few days ago; it's a movie I've already seen, but oh well. At least I tried. :silly: So now I've at least done something for all of the things I was hoping to do.

Did you leave that forum completely? Why? (Or by so to speak do you mean before you stopped using it for this iteration of your list?)

Yeah why doesn't the hide tag work when used in a second (third, fourth, etc) post on a page? I noticed that it stopped working last year around August or September on my TAC.

Congrats on picking another language, though I guess telling us doesn't make it a secret anymore huh?! I believe you've done some MSA before right? Do you remember any of it? What do you plan to use to learn it? Or are you at a level in MSA and/or Levantine that you can use the same process as you use for Malayalam/French/German/BCS/etc. - you post stuff here on UL as practice.

No, not really. I just had a lot of trouble managing being part of three forums all at the same time. :lol: I think I'm a little more capable of managing that now, though. :)

It's a quirk of the code they use. See here.

Of course not! I just let the cat out of the bag on purpose. ;)

Yes.

Yes.

Same stuff I used last time, I guess. :P :lol: So, I think that would be Mastering Arabic, The Arabic Student blog, GLOSS, and LangMedia. (EDIT: OK, mostly Mastering Arabic for MSA. I've done some Levantine Arabic before, too, and I used those other resources mainly for that :P).

Eh, I don't know it as well as any of those languages you listed, but I do practice e.g. Tagalog and Indonesian on UniLang, too, so I figure I can do the same for Arabic. :)

All right, so by now, I'm done with both German and Latin and have moved on to Portuguese, which will be followed by Spanish. After that, I'll probably do Mandarin, then BCS, then Russian, then Turkish...then Hindi I guess:

Oh, I forgot to cross out Thai earlier! :o Fixed now.

Done with Portuguese now, moved on to Spanish. Not doing too well with any of the other goals I had, tbh. :? I better do something about that. Oh well. All in good time, I guess! :)

Or "non lo sto neanche cercando" if he meant "I'm not looking for one either".
