A couple of language-related activities today—I completed a 10-day video course, and I read a book.
I do videoing well, but it doesn’t come easily. I come across OK on camera, quirky, funny, I’m told. I feel that it’s certainly the right vehicle to convey advice about language haquisition. But I do need to make better use notes as my mind tends to go blank.
As for the book, it’s in English. John Grisham’s The Confession is an addictive read. So that makes me wonder, at which level (of ability) does a book in another language begin to ‘grab’?
