I was grumbling a couple of days ago that, thanks to my odd reading habits, I have learned a lot of Russian vocabulary about killing vampires but don’t know how to say “I took a bath”. I decided this was something that could easily be remedied so, after a quick google, I found a lot of files with everyday vocabulary in many different languages, here:
The Russian/ British English vocabulary file “home”, for instance, gives useful vocabulary to describe one’s daily routine. I wonder Rasana whether it might give you some ideas for sentences in your diary collection?
Incidentally I have tried this Interlex vocabulary learning software. It’s got some nice features that LingQ doesn’t (yet…) You can create vocabulary lists that you can then share with other users. But I don’t use it, because I can only get so much pleasure from learning vocabulary from lists.
