2019: 2018, but every time something absurd makes headlines, it gets faster.
@ishiku no don't retweet this like it's useful advice 😂
Related pro tip: if you can't download an app heavier than 150 MB on your iPhone's cell connection due to Apple's arbitrary restrictions, simply:
1. Tether your Mac to your phone's Personal Hotspot via USB.
2. Rebroadcast the cell connection via WiFi using the Internet Sharing settings in your Mac's Sharing prefpane.
3. Connect your phone to the new WiFi network.
Voila! Your phone will now happily download the large app via its own rebroadcasted cellular connection.
Has anyone here used any paid language learning courses or other methods that they can recommend? Duolingo does not have the language I need: Portuguese as spoken in Portugal.
What I’m looking for most is hearing comprehension and being able to speak reasonably well, being able to make the sounds in Portuguese that we don’t have in English. Reading and writing are less important.
Recommendations welcome. I’m leaning toward Pimsleur.
Works that entered the public domain yesterday include:
• The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran
• The Inimitable Jeeves, by P.G. Wodehouse
• Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
These are excellent works, and it's excellent that they're entering the public domain, but the copyright laws that prevented this until now are EXTREMELY STUPID.
My English teacher asked other members of the class to read from a notebook I'd turned in at the beginning of the semester. After a sentence or two, I'd read ahead and judged my own work, but was forced to listen to other students trudge through it anyway.
Teacher: "What's the best thing the author can do here?"
Me, internally: "Cut the piece by about two-thirds."
The class, collectively: "Cut the piece by about two-thirds."
