@avalon and I recently started learning too! What dictionary are you using?

We found some terrific music, which helped with the multi-modal learning.

The only dictionary I've found that's worth its salt so far is the one on Lernu.net

I just bought a dead tree dictionary from an online retailer and it was a big waste... :(

Good to know. I've really wanted a good paper dictionary. :(

The work of Jonny M recently played on loop in my home as we attempted to pick out words we know.

I also found them on bandcamp.

Also, I really appreciated your thoughts on reframing the learning as more of an exploration.

Iʼm in the middle of learning, too. Started a week or two ago and went through the first 6 chapters of lernu.netʼs course. I also started a course on memorise, but put it down after a few days as it seemed redundant.

Now iʼm thinking the same, to pick up vocabulary instead of grammar first, especially after i understood the logic behind the language.
