That's strange. Do you know about any tests for Brazilian Portuguese?

Sorry, I'm afraid I don't know of any.

They actually do have tests for listening skills, too, though.

Thank you!

I did the Portuguese listening test (the first one only) and my result was A2 (48/50 points).

I also did the Spanish listening test (the second one only) and my result was C1 (28/30 points)

I have finished my internship (there were many other comments about what word is more suitable, but those who commented don't seem to have agreed on one option, so I'll continue to use this word), so now I will hopefully have more time for studying languages.

Personally, I'd say it's a good enough word.

Tagalog has a nicer phonology, but Indonesian or Malay are still higher on my list. :) Damn I already have about ten langs ready for my TAC. I have to resist the lust or I will relapse again. :)

Thanks for the various Austronesian threads Irusia! I wonder if we should make a UL Austronesian Café thread though, given that many of the languages are somewhat unintelligible (e.g. Tagalog and Balinese, Indonesian/Malay and Māori, etc.).

What do you think? Need we add an exceptional rule (i.e. all sentences need to be given English translation) for the thread if we make one?

"And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge." (Ar-Rum: 22)

We've already done that for both the Uralic Café and the Afroasiatic Café.

One suggestion: open it up to more languages. As in, if Austronesian languages are going in the Pacific forum, make a Pacific café.

I'd make the same suggestion for the Austronesian specific games that were made in the SEA forum.

This would give these threads the best chance to continue to be active, and you guys can obviously still use Austronesian languages in them. But it's just my suggestion.

It's just a matter of time waiting for the new subforum. Once it comes out, I will make the thread, that's for sure.
Also, does that mean the Pacific café can only have Austronesian languages not spoken in SEA, I'm wondering?

I've checked out the Uralic café thread, but not the Afroasiatic one. May I see it?

You're welcome, Atalarikt! :D I created the Austronesian "person below me" thread specifically for you, because I knew you're interested in those languages, and because games for specific languages would not be very active, since we do not have an Austonesian in common (except Indonesian, maybe, but this one has its own forum). I can rename those threads after the Pacific forum gets created.
I think an Austronesian cafe is a good idea.

I think we can call it Austronesian cafe now, and after the Pacific forum is created, we can rename it.

Right. I wouldn't name it "Pacific Cafe" until after we get our forum.

Based on my understanding of were we landed with our Pacific Forum proposal, most Austronesian languages (95%?) would be in the Pacific forum, and thus apply to the Pacific Cafe as well. Only the few that are spoken in mainland SEA would be excluded.

Or not. Considering how many there are on the mainland I don't think it really matters. :P
