I am interested in your opinions and experience. Do you learn the languages only on LingQ and with the help of the internet, or do you have additional course-books, and if you have both, whats your experience on both approaches?
I do have languages, where I only have books, because they are not yet on LingQ, I cannot say much about my experience there, because I just started.
I do have languages, where there is a book and LingQ, and I have made most of my progress here, starting of with a book (the old way, this was before I knew LingQ) and then changing to just reading and listening. Even if I only started the books, the progress is remarkably.
And then there is Finnish. I do not have a book there, but I wanted to give it a try. But to tell the truth, before I found this homepage, I did not like learning only on the internet, but I am flexible, and I wanted to try it anyway, although I am not accustomed, to all this. But Finnish is for me the hardest part, my progress is not very huge, I just learned 10 words, I do have lots of linqs though, but I wont recognize any of them, and I cannot remember one word, when I shut down my laptop.
OK, I sometimes do have the feeling, that I close a lesson and do not remember any of the words there, even if I have started with a book, but this happens with difficult languages, like Japanese, and is probably normal, I guess, I hope…
Well I think it is natural that there are easier and harder languages, and this is a personal thing, though I do see a connection with my way of learning, or maybe I just have the wrong approach to Finnish?
