I'm a socialist (of the council-communist current promoted by the likes of Anton Luxemburg, Pannekoek and other Dutch German leftists, NOT state-socialism) with an avid interest in history and economics. I am currently studying computer science at the University of Central Florida and hope to graduate with my Bachelors degree within the next year.

comment How Can I Deconstruct the Skill of “Learning Conversational Dutch” Into Subskills?
While reading the book might help, I don't think it's a prerequisite. The basic idea of the book is that most skills follow "power law of practice", in which the most fundamental sub-skills of a skill are learned within the first 20 hours, making this the most difficult barrier to practice. Effective practice within the first 20 hours places an individual on a basic level of proficiency, so I want to make sure I'm using my time wisely. Anyone who has learned another language likely has some input on this subject as to potential obstacles and how to break the problem into subproblems
