The 13th day is interesting. Then, we examine how language learning evolved. I’ll invite people to reflect just how little grammar instruction has actually helped them. And we’ll repeat the triad (trident?) on the same block of text.

I’m reading The Bookman’s Promise by John Dunning. That’s the second book I’ve come across where Richard Burton plays a role. (The other is Philip Jose Farmer’s Riverworld series.)

“Wherever I go, I make an attempt to learn the language.” 

‘He would pass among the people as one of them, having fluently learned their language in a few weeks or even days.’
