  1. Ha-ha! I like the podcast. I’m also pleased to meet “Billy The Kid”🙂 again!

  2. I like the podcast ! great American accent, aha!
    I’m available to practice your French (Ican speak Spanish too but not well, and this *isn’t* a lie !)

  3. Today I was searching for websites and blogs on Linguistics when I found yours – it’s amazing! I am a Brazilian student of Physics and Math, but I am fascinated for languages too. English was the first foreign language I learned (and I still learn it). I have some knowledge in Spanish, Italian, French, Icelandic, German, Classical Greek and Latin – and I intend to master all of them with the time. I saved your blog in my browser and I will follow it every day.

    Greetings from Brazil!!!

    Ps.: sorry about any English error above.

  4. Another fantastic podcast. It covers interesting issues again. At the same time quite complex ones. I would like to add something more about language liars. I believe there are people that do it on purpose. But lots of language learners find it hard to judge what their level really is. I guess here lies the problem.

    The part of the discussion about varieties of a particular language also shows something important. It may cause difficulties, especially when the pronunciation is a lot different (eg. Brazillian and European Portuguese). Personally, I started with the latter and getting accustomed to Brazillian is much more complicated for me.

    P.S. BTW, cases are exactly what I hate the most in German. Something that I cannot learn, actually.

  5. Its such as you read my mind! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few percent to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
