Once you hit the intermediate level (i.e. “I don’t know one word in this sentence” instead of “I only know one word in this sentence”), get yourself some dubbed video games. After beating the Mass Effect games and Portal 2, I’ve been playing the bajeezus out of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. It seems like there are hundreds of hours of recorded dialogue for these characters. A little interaction goes a long way. And talk about a motivator- I get to run around in the Mojave wasteland and do battle with road warriors and rogue factions and whatnot. Input got you to this level, and I have faith that more input will take you to the promised land of milk, honey, and international consequence-free sex.
Don’t want to be a broken record here, folks. This is just what I’m up to lately.
Well that and training to be a fitness model.
