je désire le monde

Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

Urbanely urban nerd. Apple fanatic. Technophile. Audiophile. Protolinguist.

prototumblinguist:

Language cafes where you can go to practice, learn, or tutor whatever language you feel like. Bookshelves filled to the brim with materials and online libraries taking terabytes of data on the public access computers. A huge network and a check-in system so you can go to a place where there are people who know the language you want to use. 

HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE

  • Before speaking to a native speaker: yeah, I think I'm almost the the stage of fluency, there's not much more I need to do
  • After speaking to a native speaker: I am an idiot

"She [Gaia the Earth] lay with Ouranos (Sky) and bare deep-swirling Okeanos, Koios and Krios and Hyperion and Iapetos, Theia and Rhea, Themis and Mnemosyne and gold-crowned Phoibe and lovely Tethys. After them was born Kronos the wily, youngest and most terrible of her children." - Hesiod
