Re: Good Audio Sources

I too have the GENKI book with CD's, and I've got the same problem. The way I study it is by reading the text, then repeatedly try to write the lines and try to speak them - inside my head, or sometimes aloud - and sometimes listen to the audio play. That audio rarely sounds like I thought it would ...

Re: Saddest Anime Ever?

For me it is Grave of the Fireflies too. It gets to me on so many levels, it evokes so many thoughts that I find it very difficult to get it out of my mind. I first saw that movie about seven years ago, then with English dubbed voices. That was on a Friday night, just before bedtime. I remember that...

Greetings to everybody in here from the Netherlands!
