Also maybe we can revive our Turkish study group!

Post what though?
Sure, using what materials? Voron recommended this TV show:
He told me it got better reviews than Hakan: Muhafız and since it's on YouTube rather than Netflix we could potentially watch it together if you have time. The only thing is that the episodes are crazy long, although I guess we can break them down into smaller chunks of twenty or thirty minutes.

vijayjohn wrote:Depends on the forum. Here, I generally just look at posts I didn't see before (or even look up old posts sometimes) and see whether there are things I can respond to. For example, I find that the word-association game and especially games like the translation game and TPAM are pretty good practice. (You probably know by now that I also usually post in my personal thread to keep track of errors and quiz myself over vocab, but that's just me, I guess ).
On Reddit, generally, what I do is to just go to the sub for learning the appropriate language and write a post in that language inviting everybody to talk about whatever in said language. Often, people say, "Suggest a topic to talk about!" (in which case I personally would probably just ask generic questions like "how are you? Where are you from?" etc. I think there has been at least one occasion where someone else suggested a topic first), but honestly, I find that even if you don't, starting a topic like this is enough to generate a decent amount of discussion.
We could always try doing that and seeing how it goes.

Not bad ideas, I'll see when I have energy for it.

Maybe I'll eventually get so bored I won't anything from this, but so far even spams and vandalism are teaching me.
