This took me a while to figure out. I didn't realize you meant to put in all the numbers (i.e. numbers 1 to 5 if it's 5 lines). I thought you meant to simply put 1 and 2 in column A and D respectively and do nothing more.

Thanks for the tip! I'll be using this =)

I mean

1 a babble, babble, babble      1 b gobble, gobble, gobble,
2 a babble, babble, babble      2 b gobble, gobble, gobble,
3 a babble, babble, babble      3 b gobble, gobble, gobble,

which eventually results in

1 a babble, babble, babble      
1 b gobble, gobble, gobble,

2 a babble, babble, babble      
2 b gobble, gobble, gobble,

3 a babble, babble, babble      
3 b gobble, gobble, gobble,
...

(a's: original, b's: translation)

No offence meant to any living language

This seems like a really good method and to be honest having read about
Schliemann and Richard Francis Burton who learnt their languages quickly
using translation, I had already decided to pursue this before I read this
topic.

Does anyone have any idea where I can get Spanish Audiobooks from? I'd be
really grateful to hear from you.

Many thanks in advance.

See the thread in the language programs forum:

http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?T ID=6386&PN=1&TPN=1

So far, I've had the most luck at the LE site.

I used it to read Alice in Wonderland, and had a marvelous time. Unfortunately, the translation the lady reads is unavailable on the internet, which prevents me from using it for the method beyond the "read in l1 while listening in l2" phase.

Currently, I'm using the Spanish version of A Christmas Carol, available on the site, and trying out my own variation of the LR method with it.

I've yet to find any material I'd want to use for this, unfortunately, so I can't try it.

I do like the idea of diving right into a language, though. Even if it's a matter of grammar study, I'm not really fond of the whole "Spend a month on one case, then maybe move on to the next" approach that so many classes have. I'd like spending maybe an hour getting down the basic gist of each case's function, then just referencing the endings until I just picked them up as a matter of course, for instance.

Perhaps we should collaborate to create interlinear texts in various language pairs. Don't know if we'll be flouting copyright law, however.

I am greatly in favor of this idea. All we need is appropriately-licensed texts. Public domain and creative commons are both ok. Permission from copyright holders to release texts under a sufficiently liberal license (like creative commons) would also work, although it's a bit more work to arrange, and not all would agree.

If we start off with Project Gutenberg, or Librivox, the majority of the texts and audiobooks are under an appropriate license.

You can find a 3-language online version of "The Little Prince" at http://www.fairydream.net/html/littleprince/ (Chinese in traditional and simplified characters, English, French). Unfortunately the texts are not aligned and there is no sound either. ...


French text of "The Little Prince" and a matching audio in French can be found at:
