    Great episode with a very bright young man! I like Andrew’s theory that you are bound to forget your vocabulary 10 times, before eventually remembering it. I’ve forgotten all my Chinese characters 9 times by now, so there might still be hope…

    Are you sure this guy and I aren’t clones of each other? Everything from our foreign languages and favourite materials to our philosophy and methodology are so similar haha. Even the Polish code-breaking mentality!
    When I bought my current computer several months ago, I intentionally opted for a CD drive because I knew I’d be getting (more) Assimil sometime. You never know when they’ll finally get on with the times…

    “You have to keep forgetting in order to remember” That is a nice quote
