Minor rant - people taking requests for quite specific advice as requests for very general advice are... I mean, I appreciate the sentiment but it's often frustrating what people think I haven't thought of.

"Borrow children's books when learning a new language" - yes, from all the good Georgian childrens' bookshops that Frankfurt has?

"Try finding an actual Georgian" - you mean like the one who's an empirical linguistics professor who's teaching me an hour a day?


For context, I asked for specific advice on pushing through the early lexicon-level barrier where I have a lot of vocab to learn but not enough verbs/grammar to write much extended stuff which is my preferred way of learning. Bunch of people told me I should write extended stuff, plus the above.
