I don't Speak French Part 2

Now that I've nearly finished my BBC Top 100 reads, I've been debating whether or not to do any more tasks this side of Christmas. Then this morning in my in box, up popped this:- Groupon, which is a voucher for ear worms, a musical brain training cd that allows you to learn key words and phrases for a chosen language. For a fiver I thought it was worth trying out and hopefully by Christmas I might have another task to tick off!

There are quite a lot of free podcasts out there which are good at helping people learn languages. Good to have on an mp3 player whilst on the go.

Got one on my iPod but thought this sounded a different concept to what I've already got - will let you know if it's any good!

I've never heard of ear worms but they sound kinda scary! I wonder if there is anything to playing a language during your sleep and learing it subconsiously...

Jessica - neither had I, but it sounded good and hmmm I often wondered if listened to stuff whilst you sleep works...

I always like the scene in The Matrix where Neo learnt how to fly helicopters and all sorts at the touch of a button. Let me know when they invent that gadget and implant please.

Well done on the reading front. You must be shattered? Keep up the good work hun. Take care xx

That would be cool, if I could just learn French at the touch of a button! Shattered more with life at the moment - reading is my salvation!
