If you have bitten off more than you can chew, you just have to sacrifice certain languages, which can be extremely painful, as well as a great loss of time, so again, I heartily recommend acquiring more selectively than I did.

I took more time than I could afford out of my afternoon schedule to compare older and updated offerings by the same publisher. I didn't need to *prove* this to myself - I already knew it - but it was good to find that it could be proven so easily.


If you read his posts carefully, Ardaschir often spoke of time and the value of time. He invested a lot of time in his posts. In the grand scheme of his life, he probably thought his time would be better spent as a non-member.

Yes; I agree with you both. Most likely he found the forum incompatible with either his ideas or time commitments - most likely, with both. Oh well.

Is this the same guy that teaches over at New College in San Fransisco? Why of all places did he decide to teach there?

As far as I know, this is the only website out there that has a sizable amount of language learning information. All the others are just minor blogs or storefronts. Why would a language enthusiast simply drop all contact with the forum? 15 min every weekend is not going to ruin somebody's schedule. To say it would would be dishonest.

It would've been nice to see how Ardashir responded to the guy selling his Pimsleur products a week or two ago.

I've always thought it was as simple as that Ardaschir had a lot of other things to focus on, namely his book on polyglottery and of course life in general after what happened in Lebanon last year.
