I bought a whole load of Italian books today :))) <3


Guida alle preposizioni - with translations into English, German, Spanish (also French)


Spanish-Italian dictionary


four stories with the footnotes and glossaries translated into four languages (same as above)


Guidebooks with tests/exercises - Florence and Venice


Dimmi - Manuale per la Comunicazione. might sound more useful than it is


Sounds like there's a lot of advice applicable to various languages


not a doctor but I'm very interested in medicine


No Fiorentina stuff so I'll laugh at Milan instead...
read many jokes already, easy to read... hope it'll help with my mostly psychological issues when i stare like "um does this word really mean THIS"

also, going to Finland soon and I realized I gotta check out what they have available, for Italian and other languages too. Feels different from my previous study of other languages through Finnish - I'll just have a look at what I can have now, as a proficient Finnish speaker. I'm surprised I didn't think of it from this point of view before:)

lovelovelove the medical one. such a clever idea.
I'm considering getting one from the same series to prepare for my economics exam the fun way:D it's like a basic textbook, less complicated than a real one but not like the stuff for children :D and exercises are fun too when i'm learning the content and not the language:)
great stuff, not surprised it's published in Florence haha. ♥

been so interesting to describe what attracts me to languages.... http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?T ID=30197&PN=1&TPN=1
I guess I gotta make more effort with my native Russian, seeing how important it is for me to see its influence! :) I found myself neglecting the "technical" differences between Russian and English, gotta work on that. at one point fairly recently I realized I don't care if I forget it one day, well not literally... but no, I should make an effort to keep it as sharp as it is right now.

I'm in Finland now, I had a look at what Akateeminen kirjakauppa offers for my newer languages and I'm shocked! Mostly in the target language or English, though - I haven't bought any textbooks yet. Though I've decided I'll buy a German one for Swedish speakers, hehe. Like with the Italian one for Croatians, it should make the basic stuff more motivating. also bought a Finnish-German dictionary....everything to get more motivated about German. IDK what's even happened... I've realized fairly recently that I once got so fascinated because English was my only foreign language, compared to the Romance similarities it looks far less special now hehe.

also, it was awkward to buy 1-2 books at a time so it wasn't too many languages at once XD

Muistin äkkiä että minähän meinasin lukea muutaman "tärkeän" suomalaisen kirjan, kuten Sinuhe tai Täällä pohjantähden alla. Toivottavasti nyt pidän tämän tavoitteeni mielessä kun uus TAC alkaa :P

ah i love my active phase <3 Romanian day on Monday (football+HP), now a couple of Italian days, today along with German (finally bought the book w/jokes, Ilya Frank method). ZOMG translation+enhanced logical thinking=easily noticing the meanings of tiny words like da, ja, auch, doch - how come I've not noticed in 8 years that they can mean 3574856 things??? read 50 pages today.
Very optimistic about my German now - maybe that's also the phase XD Can't believe the solution was right there! I read Ukrainian and Portuguese books adapted this way, recommended this for several people's English learning... I even own an adapted German book but this was boring sh*t for uni. IDK why I tried so many things but German kept on slipping away from me somehow...

also, after the mention here that "one" (as a generalisation) is quite formal, I've been trying to get used to saying "you" instead. arghhh stupid language classes.
