Looking back on.. Dofus: The Treasures of Kerubim & Dofus Book I: Julith

When I watch a something I like to watch everything ever made for it which can cause problems many times and it did when I watched Wakfu and became a fan of it. I researched and saw that there was another animated show in the Wakfu universe called Dofus aux trésors de Kérubim and even a movie Dofus Book I: Julith.

Dofus Wakfu Shark

It was a bit hard to find any info on it and if you asked fans of Wakfu they would dismiss the show as it being bad and not worth watching besides the first two episodes and the movie. But is it really that bad of a show? I had to watch it for the above reasons anywho so were the general opinions of the show correct?

French Progress #1

As some of you guys know, I am trying to learn as much French as I can in one year. There is at least one article per week on Friday’s that will be French related though other days will also include French content if applicable.

I thought it’d be appropriate to write updates on my progress so far and it’s been about a month since I started my current “phase” of studying. Originally these updates were going to be monthly but I”m starting to think that they’ll be bi monthly or so after this one to have a larger lapse of time to see some results or lack of.

So far I’ve mostly been using the apps I’ve mentioned in another post and even broke the habit of using them only to build up the habit again. I am training about an hour every day, some days I train more and some others a bit less but I’d say the average is about an hour.

So far my progress has been a bit slow, I don’t think I’ve made tons of improvement grammar wise though I do think the vocabulary is starting to stick. Vocabulary is one of those things that you have got to memorize one way or another and through the apps I’m using daily. Even someone like me who forgets the vocabulary often, has been able to retain a good amount of it. I still forget plenty of it and very basic words but I do see a small improvement in my vocabulary.

Besides the apps I am also using some beginners books and podcasts to improve my reading and listening which I will talk about at a later time. I have also made a page to archive all my french posts at miscrave.com/learn-french. So check that out if you’re just starting or want to see what you’ve been missing on.

Layton World Walkthrough Puzzles m-n-o-p

The live online Professor Layton game of “real” puzzles called Layton’s Mystery Journey: Real World Puzzle Solving or Layton World for short is on to help promote Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy. As this is a timed based web based game the puzzles will eventually get lost to time so here we will have an archive of the puzzles as well as hints and solutions for those stuck in any specific puzzle. The puzzles are not that difficult so I would suggest only looking at the answer if you’re completely stumped. Here we will take a look at Puzzles m, n, o and p.

Learn English & French

A quick announcement on some side-projects here at the Rave.

I was a foreign language teacher for a few years and still help people out from time to time. So I thought I’d aggregate some tools and steps for people who are learning English to use and help anyone who is learning with all the experience that I have gathered over the years. The posts will be made every Wednesday and you can see an archive of them by clicking the link below:
