Iï¿½d like to get to the point where Iï¿½m posting here at least once a day. It might not always be interesting, but here goes…
As a lot of the original materials having to do with the Haitian Revolution are in French, Iï¿½ve been studying the language through Rosetta Stone. I paid for a quarterly subscription to their online course, and Iï¿½ve been very happy so far.
Logging in to their website loads a Shockwave browser window which contains the entire course. You start by matching spoken phrases with pictures and can progress to writing and even speaking, via a microphone on your PC. I may post a thorough review after Iï¿½ve had a chance to get through a few more lessons, but my initial impressions are quite positive. Thereï¿½s a free demo of the online version available, too, so try it out!
Other than that, Iï¿½m reading Libete and the occasional online essay at Professor Corbettï¿½s site or elsewhere. Also keeping up with the steady stream of news and discussion on the Haiti List.
