  • Based of your own personal experience- Can I as a person who only speaks one language fluently learn multiple Languages at once or is this a silly idea? I want to learn other languages alongside the one im already learning
    It is possible languages that do no share roots. You also need to create a different environment for studying each language. I am studying Korean and Chinese st the same time. And even though they share the some words and the Characters they are essentially separate languages because Standard Mandarin was "redesigned" to be closer to English Grammer while Korean and Japanese follow "closer" to ancient Chinese. Due to the way I am studying each language, I almost never get confused. I will caveat this with I had been studying Korean for 7 to 8 months before starting Standard Mandarin so I had a foundation that was somewhat solid. I am using Mandarin Blueprint and Anki for Mandarin and for Korean LingQ, Memrise, Anki and supplementing it with Talk to Me in Korean.
  • Note Cards/Index Cards/Memory Cards for studying | 2021-09-07
    If its flashcards you're looking for download Anki. The PC version has more options than mobile. Though the learning curve is a bit steep.
  • Any good resources for remembering different cable types? | 2021-09-06
  • How do you guys study and prepare for midterms/exams? | 2021-09-06
    I recommend this app called Anki that does flashcards and the spaced repetition for you :)
  • Can anyone give helpful tips on how to remember or the most important things to remember about muscle physiology?
    Ask your lecturer/teacher what you need to remember, then go to r/medicalschoolanki for advice on how to use Anki, don't waste your time with any other app that promises you the world and charges you money.
  • Beginner study plan?
    For vocab revision, I use Anki - I have a general vocab list and a verbs one, because Greek verbs are hell and I need all the extra help I can get!

  • New to Mac ecosystem and MacBook Air M1. Need starting tips and app suggestions | 2021-10-16
    I use firefox for browsing the web, bitwarden for my password manager, Authenticator extension for totp app, and libreoffice for writing docs. Rectangle is a very good app that allows you to snap windows into a grid (fourths, sixths, twos etc), like windows. There is also a useful timer app I have installed.

    This is the only thing missing from MacOS by default, especially as the tile option that's built-in isn't very good. There are tools in the App Store that 'restore' this functionality, BetterSnapTool is one I use and costs $2.99. There's a free app that appears to do the same thing, Rectangle, though I haven't tried it since I already have an App that does it.
