i am taking articles from the internet and pating them to microsoft word and then reading them later. this helps me with english and spanish.

reading helps you learn a language well. and then speaking and writing is good too.

I hate to sound like an advertisement, but pasting items from your reading into Supermemo is SO much better than just filing them away into a list in Word... I did that kind of thing for years (compiling lists from my reading), but when I discovered Supermemo there was no looking back.

It's a great piece of software for adding things to your long-term memory.

I'll defer to Antimoon's very good discussion here:

I do the same thing as Ghelp does. I print out 10 pages at a time, and set the properties to make two pages be printed on one full size page.

What I do is take articles in French, and then put them into word, and wait until I have 50 to 70 full size pages (100 to 140 actual pages) to read them.

How do you do it Ghelp? Are you French, if you do not mind me asking.

I even found some information about the Amish and Pennsylvania Germans in French! C'est cool et bizarre, non ?
