What Languages Does John McWhorter speak? October 5, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — eo @ 12:21 pm

I liked the courses of John McWhorter from the Teaching Company and I was curious what languages he does speak himself.

After some research, I found out he speaks English and then French, Spanish and German fluently and Japanese to some extent and can read and more or less speak Latin, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Esperanto, Swahili, Hebrew and Saramaccan (which he mentioned in his course).


Carl Kenner Japanese September 3, 2008

I have got a torrent with a Carl Kenner Japanese course which I found to be totally completely awesome but it ends unexpectedly without even covering the whole course material in CD 2.
It was quite hard to find any information about this on the net but eventually I was able to find that the course is still being continued.

You can get a ZIP file with CDs 1-4 here:
Carl Kenner Japanese audio course

The first two CDs are already in the torrent but if you download the package, you get two CDs (CDs 3 and 4) more. It’s worth checking out.

Do you know the old DOS game Antoshka (Антошка)? You had to dig some holes to get monsters in them (bananas, hammers and so on) and then bury them in there to make them fall and pass levels.

So, good news, guys, if you were looking for this game, now where is a site with instructions and links how to get Antoshka (Drilling Billy).

And if you haven’t tried it, go on and do it. Antoska is a really cool game and you’ll like it.


Rosetta Stone learning greek November 23, 2007

Rosetta Stone learning Greek is a phrase I coined from the search results of the Rosetta Stone course.

I have tried Rosetta Stone and I found them a) instruing b) boring. So, no bullshit, you might like it or might not like it. I say you try it.

Rosetta Stone learning Greek costs about $300 so it’s a bit expensive but I think you may get a refund if you don’t like it. Perhaps, you will like it. It’s not like there is another option for learning greek.
