I've been wanting to learn German for so long, have started countless times but I get so far to then get discouraged because I can't remember anything. What do you guys do!? How do you start, what resources do you learn first. How many hours of studying a day or week do you out it. Do you strictly just read or write or just hear your target language. Please give me some pointers.
How long did it take? What did it take, in terms of what you had to do? Would you do it again, if given the choice?
Is there any languages you dislike or don’t want to learn? If so, I’d like to know why!
I'm a native English speaker from the USA and over the past few months I've been really interested in a specific language. However, it is very hard to find any information on this, as I believe this language isn't widely used anymore.
The language I'm trying to learn is Mongolian. More specifically, Mongolian script. My understanding goes such that old Mongolian script used by the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan and the following generations was abolished I'm the 1940s and replaced with a Cyrillic alphabet.
I've searched for days and I haven't found anything that looks like a starting point for learning. I'm fairly certain that its still possible to learn it, as I've seen multiple videos on YouTube and other places using the script, but its hard to find a starting point.
Thanks for any help everyone.
As the title says I'm in a complicated situation because I'm feeling I'm not making much progress as I should. I've been learning German for a year and I've got a lot of passive knowledge, my listening is decent and I can read a lot. My problem is when I have to speak the language, I'm a complete mess when it comes to speak German, since I don't have anybody to speak German I try to speak to myself about all the things I've done through the day, I try to talk about different topics and yes it has helped me but I still feel it's too slow.
Anybody who's been in my place when you're learning a language completely on your own since you don't have any native speaker to practice the language? What should I do? how can I improve my speaking skills faster?
Should I learn Japanese or Hentai first? On the one hand I love every single thing about Japan and the language and I am intensely motivated to speak this language and interact with the culture. On the other hand I would learn some kind of indigenous language but I don't wanna be racist and also there's this job offer for someone who speaks Djeklha and I need some money. Please help!
ps. i got a B in Spanish in 8th grade if that helps
Any good apps/websites for learning Greek without paying a lot of money for it? I've tried a few of them but couldn't really get into them
Hello fellow language learners.
So I'm taking this course from my university and I was assigned to do a value proposition analysis in a service.
If it's not too much to ask,
may I borrow one minute of your time to fill this google form survey?
Thank you for your time.
I am a college student and I recently completed French 1,2 and 3. I did well and it was very very interesting to me. My textbook teaches all the classes (1-4) and I am not sure how to study on my own time. Any suggestions would be awesome!
Welcome to Babylonian Chaos. Each week on Thursday 18:00 UTC we host a thread for learners to get a chance to write any language they're learning and find people who are doing the same. Native speakers are welcome to join in.
You can pick whatever topic you want. Introduce yourself, look for native speakers, ask a question or anything.
Please consider sorting by new.
What's about the idea of a browser, which can to translate for you any language to your language? It seems like Google Chrome with Google Translate work in a pair. The browser with translator (it can be made with Google API) help you with learning a new language, when you copy a piece of a text in a foregien language you see translation and also you have this functions:
- add a word or phrase to your personal vocablurary;
- scroll the text in a foregien language, parallel check the traslation.
Well, what you can say about this?
I'm super curious as to what languages have something if at all similiar.
If there's one for Russian I'd really love to see it since I'm currently in the early stages of learning it. It'd be great practising for my handwriting
hello! native English (american) speaker here. already learning latin spanish. i also want to learn arabic and/or farsi and urdu, none of which are available on my primary resource (duolingo). i’m a high school student, so my budget is extremely limited/nonexistent (but i might be able to slowly save up to buy a necessary course).
does anybody know any resources i might be able to use? (please include pricing)
Now that the app has been in the Beta process for a while, I'm curious to hear if anyone has tried it and how effective they've found it so far. What are the features and general learning structure? Is it worth the price?
Hey there r/languagelearning.
I'm thinking of picking up some Cameroonian Pidgin English in my spare time, as I'm going to be traveling there soon. I'm a native English speaker, and I assume that's going to be a huge advantage in learning the language, but then again I might be overestimating its usefulness.
Has anyone here ever learned a pidgin or creole? Was it harder than you thought, or could you just pick it right up based on your knowledge of its base language?
And where can I find resources for Cameroonian pidgin? :P
