    That brings back memories when I was teaching my girl English. She's better than me now! But she still whips my ass in German.

    Nice! That would probably be the same for anime stuff. I struggle with learning languages, so I have a ton of respect for anyone who knows one or more extra.

    I have, it's not helping. My difficulty probably has to do with the way I learn, I have to understand something before I remember it, so memorizing things is pointless.

    Have you tried looking for a digital version in the meantime?

    I know right? When buying epic fantasy books I also save shelf space, since the German version's usually two books long.
    (@Sharm I'm similar, understanding makes it easier for me to retain information, which is why I'd recommend LingoDeer if I knew if it's still free and if it offers a language you'd be interested in. It actually teaches in sentences and has grammar and nice visuals)

    Waiting is so hard! Sometimes I'll buy something from China and I'll have to forget about it not to fret to death about it.

    (@Chiara That looks awesome! Downloaded.)

    Now am curious--what languages do they offer Sharm or Chiara?

    Enough that it would be best for you to just check it out yourself. ;)

    Hmm--you drive a hard bargain. Looks like I'll have to see it then. I blame you if I learn a new language.
