    rz3300 got a reaction from aviendha in Television Shows and Movies for Immersion   
    Well that is certainly an interesting question, and it makes me think that you could really use it as an advantage if you really tried, and maybe use it as quick way to test yourself.  That said, though, it would have to mean that the subtitles are pretty accurate, and that has certainly not always been the case in the shows that I have seen.  I am not really sure if that is something that is improving though, but I bet that it is.  Anyways, it is a good idea to explore, and thanks for sharing.

    rz3300 got a reaction from Yoshie in Do you find that being angry or upset affects your linguistic ability?   
    I would most certainly say that it does.  I think that we all know that we have the cuss words and the bad words for a reason, to express emphasis, and those are what I and many others resort to.  We also know that they are not the most elaborate or educational or classy or descriptive of language, so that is a negative.  Hopefully there are people out there who handle their anger better than I do, and I know that there are, and surely they are better with their language than I am.

    rz3300 got a reaction from sillylucy in What Happened To Cursive Writing ?   
    It certainly is a sad sight to see so many people not even knowing how to write in cursive, but then again I really do not enjoy it so I cannot blame anyone for not using it and then taking it further to the overall decline of the usage among the population.  I think that it is just being sped along too by the use of computers, but that is to be expected as well.  It will probably remain a dignified or unique way to write, though, and I do not think that will change anytime soon.

    rz3300 got a reaction from 宇崎ちゃん in Where to start when learning a new language?   
    I have always been under the impression that diving right in is the best way to go.  Speaking to people who it is their native tongue will really get you thinking and in the mood to learn to communicate, and you really will surprise yourself at how much more quickly you can pick up on some things versus reading them in a book or going through a program on the computer.  Of course it all depends on your learning style, and trying every option is probably the only real way to know.
