I'm sure that there are errors, and if they come again and again they may indicate some systematic problem (for instance I have noticed that I have a tendency to use 3. person endings on 1. person verbs outside the present tense, simply because I see them much more often in the kind of texts I prefer), It will be useful to get such things pointed out, but as a general rule I'm not very interested in getting long rows of corrections.

SP: Relativo al español, he visto hoy un programa en TVE Internacional sobre las dos catedrales y la universidad de Salamanca, y he aprendido una nueva palabra: "salamantina". Normalmente se ha derribado una vieja catedrál después de la construcción de una nueva y mas grande, pero en Salamanca no - y la razón fue que los profesores de la universidad han utilizado la vieja catedral y su claustro para sus lecciones.

También he trabajado con mi bahasa, pero aparte de eso he revisado mis dos últimos vídeos - y ahore sé que mi ordenador de casa es algo más lento que aquello que tengo a mi trabajo. Y he instalado la cámara web que compré hace unos dias para que pueda empezar a hacer videos a casa. Funciona bien, y quizá puedo llegar a hacer las últimas dos películas previstas sobre el aprendizaje de idiomas en el fin de semana.

Concerning Spanish: I have watched a program on TVE about the two cathedrals in Salamanca, which I visited twenty years ago. Apparently old cathedrals were generally pulled down when a new and larger had been constructed, and the old cathedral in Salamanca allegedly only survived because it was used by the teachers of the very famous university in that town.

I have also worked on my Bahasa (while watching Anglophone TV programs, including a very interesting one about the origins of the tale about King Arthur, first mentioned by Nennius round 800, then Geoffroy of Monmouth in the 1100s and polished by the imprisoned Mallory after 1400 - French sources like Chrétien de Troeyes were not discussed).

But after that I have revised my latest two videos, and I have at long last installed my own webcam, which I bought two weeks ago. So with I little luck I may be able to make the last two of the vdeos I have planned. Not one of the three first came under 10 minutes, so the new limit of 15 minutes on Youtube comes at a very opportune moment.

In that case, I can say you that you have put some words from other languages in your Spanish paragraphs:

"Y he instalado cámara web que compré hace quelque dias para que pueda empezar a hacer videos" (From French)

"No hay mucho que dizer hoy" (From portuguese)

Well, it seems that I'm as multiconfused as this thread. I also found a couple of errors myself: "(a)quellos que", "(la) cámara" and "util(i)zado". I definitely need to be more vigilant. Thanks to El Forastero for drawing my attention to this problem.

My language studies are definitely suffering these days because I'm spending time on those pesky videos ... but at least I make progress with them. Today I revised (and shortened) two of my videos, planned, sketched and 'performed' one and prepared one more for tomorrow. This means making a synopsis (which I know I won't follow, but just use as a list of things I should remember to say), choosing and preparing pictures AND last, but not least, thinking through the project. And so far I have not made a video that didn't need some retouching.

For instance I suddenly remembered that I had said "the old black school" in one of them. In Danish the expression "the sort skole" refers to the old "latinskole", i.e. the schools attached to churches where pupils clad in black studied Latin and theology - but this is not really the meaning of the expression in English (especially not in the USA), so I had to make a change. And then I also cut out a couple of minutes from the video, for good mesure.

I expect that tomorrow's video will be the last in the series, and its theme will be grammar learning. In one section that I quote the following 'green sheet' that summarizes all the regular forms of the articles, adjectives and substantives in Icelandic - it doesn't really look all that intimidating when you get the whole shebang as one single small table in one fell swoop, does it?



LAT: Postea animo habeo videonem in latine facere ut prima inter pares. Tunc studia mea rursus ad linguas discendum revertent!

Neither has anyone else, haha.

And they give Oscars for best editing...


For example I don't retouch my You Tube videos. Mostly I act one pre-video without the camera. Then we record the video and as it is recorded I upload it to You Tube.

This afternoon I made the video about grammar ... well, not quite, because at 12' I realized that I only had been speaking about and exemplifying techniques to learn morphology. So I'll have to make one more about syntax - and I have planned to analyze a Danish 'sentence knot' (they exist in English, but not quite to the same extent). Hopefully I can do it tomorrow, and then I'll upload it and the five finished videos I have stocked so far. They are all recorded at my job (after working hours when everybody has left the office), and I want no. 6 to have the same background.

I have however already got a Youtube account now, though I was somewhat perplexed when Youtube told me to reuse my gmail account. But I can't get my HTLAL name ('Iversen'), so it will have to be NJLIversen - I'll write put a reference to it in post 1 of my log as soon as there is something to look at.

Right now I'm watching Syzygyzz' videos about Youtube polyglots. And I have already watched the one about his poor daughter who had to do seven pages of homework consisting entirely of Spanish verb paradigmata.

However I have also found time to do some wordlists in Irish - my Irish studies have been somewhat neglected lately because I wanted to get a good start in Bahasa M & I. And no, I don't have time to write this in Irish - I'm kind of beezee. But I'll give you one sweet little detail: accents in Irish are called "blas", a word that also means 'taste'. Language flavours? Why not!

GER: Darüber hinaus habe ich Deutsches Fern geguckt, und ich habe dort eine ganze Sendung über dem Dänisch-Norwegischen Seeheld Tordenskjold ("Donnerschild") alias Peter Wessel gesehen. Aber auch einige Sendungen auf Englisch, wie gewöhnlich. Auf Dänisch nur eine Sendung über Portwein. Und ja, das hätte ich auf Portugisisch schreiben sollen.

I am looking forward to watching your videos as soon as they are uploaded! Same with my HTLAL name "Fasulye". There are Turkish channels with that name. So I had to decide for "Fasulye2009".
