I hadn’t listened to Harry Potter in Danish yet but I did so yesterday. (Or was it Swedish or Norwegian?) But then I started to berate myself. Surely I had wasted 30 minutes that I could’ve used to make real progress in a language I was studying.
I don’t want my learning to just involve numbers, rates, measurement, percent and the like. That’s what I’m trying to transcend. Left-brain thinking is so anal.
And I got a lot out of my Danish: sounds, sound patterns, sound-alike words in related languages. Heck, I could follow along and actually understand!
