Loved listening to this podcast, Olle beautifully put into words everything that I’ve been thinking about formal education but wasn’t able to figure out how to express it. The best bit – this can be applied not only to Chinese but to any language.
In spring I was looking something up and it led me to a Quora page, where I had to register in order to read the answer. I registered without the second thought. I don’t remember whether I set my languages or Quora guessed them, but since then it’s been sending me emails with question-answer complilations in English, Spanish and Italian.
Some of those questions were actually interesting, like about K-pop or how to deal with teenagers not wanting to take their hoodies off. If I saw something interesting I clicked on them and read it through. And only today I realised that it is actually a good reading practice for Italian and Spanish, since I don’t have much interaction in these languages nowadays, the Quora articles keep me entertained while at the same time maintaining the reading level.
I start to wonder – since I’ve never used Reddit, is it similar or is it more like a forum?
