I have found a new website to add to my list of favourites ! Duolingo is a free language learning site for European languages. Excellent and well constructed site. I am learning Italian and am combining learning on Memrise and Duolingo which seems to be working well. I am finding Italian much easier to remember than Chinese with the exception of verb construction which I'm struggling with a bit. The audio testing on duolingo is a great feature and the constant practice and revision on both sites is great. A lot of sentence construction practice on duolingo too.

The debt and the doormat by Laura Barnard

A series of misadventures. I did laugh out loud in a couple of places and by the end I was engaged with the characters and wanted to read the next book.
