Fair enough, just find a dictionary that works on your platform, and maybe highlight the words you want to look up while reading and then look them up after you're done reading.

Rikugo (六合) -- Prog-ish metal
Traumhaus -- Dream Theater-like "tame" prog-metal

I haven't found anything else really. I'm not limiting myself to prog when it comes to foreign music.

Best method = moving to the country that speaks the language you want to learn and get yourself a gf/bf there.

Cool, this is a thread. It's an inactive thread, but maybe this bump will bring some life back into it.

My first language was Filipino, second was English, third was Spanish. I'm studying a bit of French whenever I can squeeze some time. I might try to pick up Italian again but I wasn't that interested in it because I figured it wouldn't be so useful. I've also set a goal for myself to learn American Sign Language- having deaf and/or mute customers has reminded me of that.

Listen to a lot of French. There's no way around it.

You should find materials that suit your level, as well as your interests. For instance, if you're into gaming, then you should look for "let's play ..." videos, since they are really easy to follow (at least in German, which is my first non-English foreign language). Vlogs, and the Easy Langauges channel on YouTube may be useful as well. Find something that you enjoy, and that will help you keep up your motivation to continue practicing.

That's what worked for me when I was learning German. Also, you should work on expanding your vocabulary, because it's hard to recognise the words you're hearing when you don't know them.

I'm focusing on Mandarin and Tamil now. I knew bits of both before (environment and mother tongue, respectively) but not enough.

Mandarin is much easier than Tamil...for now. This is in spite of the fact that I can understand Tamil pretty well. I haven't learned to recognize a lot of Chinese characters yet and I suspect that is where it might get difficult in the future.

However, spoken Tamil is more difficult for me than learning to read and write. Mostly because I have never actually heard the dialect I am learning and written Tamil is only used in official speeches and writing - the spoken variety is like a dialect of its own.

I've been learning gibberish again, used to be fluent in it, but I let it lapse.

Wow, the internet translator for it really works, sweet.
