Re: strategies for learning new languages

  What strategies do you use for becoming proficient in a new language?

Don't forget P.J. Plauger's approach: "My approach to learning a programming
language is to write a compiler for it." (The C User's Journal, October 1993).
I do something similar, except I have a small pile of simple languages for
which I write compilers in the language I'm learning (an edison compiler in
java, most recently).
