Aha - well, I never read it complete, for I didn't get beyond 1.10, I
always fail to answer the "-'e' " questions correct...

Hmm - I didn't really notice QQ at all till yet - I'm going to read
through it.
With "literature" I was not necessarily refering to "higher" texts,
but simply something that can be read by beginners.

Sure, but it is at least worth a try.

You don't know that story? Well, it is written by d'Armond Speers and
can be found in his program "pojwI'" for windows, where it is used to
help the learner using the newly aquired knowledge. It makes use of
the vocabulary that has been learned before.

I highly recommend downloading that program - itīs quite useful for
translating sentences. And itīs lessons are great - a good addition
to the TKD IMHO.
