I’ve been spending my walking time listening to Pimsleur Danish. It’s taken a real hit on my podcast listening which has all but stopped. Alas you can’t consume everything all the time.

@kaa Pimsleur is the best. I made great improvements to French and German just by doing the exercises in the car. But I assume you don't practice aloud while walking?

@macgenie ha that’s exactly what I’m doing. Except in a bit of a low voice. I’ve realised that the first time I do a new lesson I’m rubbish. By the third time it’s all there :).

@kaa I wish they had Pimsleur for Slovenian. (I wish there was anything good for Slovenian.)

@kaa Another interesting source is Benny Lewis, the Irish Polyglot. I saw him speak years ago and it made a big impression. A lot of practical tips on getting yourself speaking a new language.
