I’m growing faster than Jon is in the books. I’m getting to be a man rather than a teenager. So, I had to adapt how he is in the books to how I want him to be as he grows. I think going back to Season 2 and the difference within him is that he’s a man now. I saw him in Season 1 as a teenager. I had him in my head as about 18. But even though we carry straight on from the first season, there’s a shift in him, which happens at the end when you see him riding out beyond the Wall where he becomes that man. I think his father would be proud of him, seeing that.

IRISH FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS IS NOW AVAILABLE, WHILE RUSSIAN AND SWEDISH FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE BEING WORKED ON!

Irish has been at 99% for like 2 months it could be another several weeks before it’s released into beta

But Russian will probably pick up the pace after the English for Russian speakers course has graduated from beta, I think that’s where their focus has been because the progress stopped on the Russian for English speakers course for several months and they’ve just recently picked it back up again (unfortunately the ETA has been pushed back by like 5 months from where it was before that)

ANYWAY I’M REALLY EXCITED FOR ALL OF THESE TOO

i wish they could add chinese

There’s an English for “Chinese” speakers course that’s almost graduated from beta so it’s possible that the developers might be interested in creating a Mandarin for English speakers course after they’ve completed this course

I looked and it said the beta for Irish is supposedly going to be released today, July 21, so we will see if it comes out in the next few weeks. Thanks for the info on Russian! I’m currently working on improving my German and started Italian in May.

Today it says the 21st, tomorrow it will say 22nd, the day after it will say 23rd, lol, it’s been doing this since June. The ETA calculates the percentage of words added but does not take into account other essential components like tips & notes explaining grammar rules, the addition word images, testing the course etc.

Team Dutch provided links to forums explaining this in detail 1 2 although I have a feeling Irish for English Speakers will be released either this week or next week since Dutch for English Speakers was just released and they were literally racing each other earlier so it can’t be too far behind

Oh damn, I didn’t know that. Thanks for the link and the info again, yeah hopefully, it will come out soon. I’d want it to be as accurate as possible so I understand why they are taking their time. I’m sure it will be up by fall or winter (hopefully…)

"Multiple reports and witnesses have confirmed that almost half of Gaza city is now covered with white phosphorus gas. Mainly Shaja’ya area. This is not the first time Israel uses this brutal and heartless war method which burns the body and produces toxic gases. Incase you didn’t know, white phosphorus gas is illegal in all international war laws, and UN laws. It is a war crime.”

It’s actually a good thing that the zombie apocalypse starts in Florida because then the zombies only have one way to go and that’s straight up into trigger happy redneck territory. I give it two weeks before monster trucks and mullets save us.

can we talk about how this is still getting notes

The funny thing is that i can not actually come up with a counter argument for this.
