    My resources and life situation is such now that I can't go to some immersion school in Costa Rica or Mexico to learn Spanish. I haven't studied in a while and consequently am really rusty. I run into similar blocks every time I try to study Spanish without any tutoring. Vocab doesn't often...
  2. Site Feedback & Technical Support
    As in, separated from the rest of the boards. Posts in community forum do not show up in activity lists, "new posts" etc. but posts in social groups surprisingly do.

    Disco and dance music from the good old days tends to be maligned. I am a fan of Donna Summer, the Bee Gees, and other great dance groups up to Kraftwerk. Let us celebrate a lost era here. :)

Most chamber works, especially in Classicism and early Romanticism, fall into some...
