    Ways to learn a language: I'm a professional interpreter, and fluent in 6 languages.

    Regarding immersion, how do you handle it when foreigners don't want to use their native language with you? This is when you're in their country. Also, what about when you feel like you can't ever think of anything interesting to discuss with natives? My desire to learn is still there, but...

    The Dave Chappelle thread

    Caught the sticks and stones special last night. I think he made some interesting points but it wasn't nearly as funny as his earlier material. I'd give it a 3/5
