The Three Laws of Language-Learning | Version 1.0

  1. The Prime Directive: Have fun.
  2. Suck less every day; never suck more today than you did yesterday; always decrease suckage, and do so in a way that does not conflict with Law #1.
  3. Little and often. Start more times than you stop. Start more often than you stop.

If you take nothing else from this website, and I mean it this time, if you take nothing else…take these.

    Actually, there should be a fight club version:
    Rule 1: Have fun!
    Rule 2: DO have fun!

    WAY to soon. There’s an order to these things. I have to cross the Rubicon AND shack up with a queen first.

    “Have fun” should be the zeroth law. Yes, I’m that nerdy.

    Directly in relation to this post: does anyone know where to find a good selection of Japanese freeware games?

    Love it. Since I do stuff in English every day, hopefully I suck less every day. I’m not sure though. Meh, at least I’m having fun.

    OK, anybody know an equivalent of this good site for Chinese/Putonghua?
