Interview with Vojtěch Meruňka about Interslavic [in Czech]

I have purchased Michel Thomas Russian Start but I am extremely tight for money right now so I cannot afford to buy the Total course but would love to continue learning. If anybody has a link to a torrent or can upload the audio files to something for me to download, I would appreciate this immensely.

Thank you

P.S. I know this is dishonest but I really cannot buy it right now, in any other circumstance id play the Good Samaritan.

Does anybody have Michel Thomas Total Russian that could set up a dropbox w/ files?

My German is around B2 level, although I have not used it for a year now so my knowledge is becoming a bit rusty. I want to improve or at least maintain my German skills and the best I can do currently is to watch German movies and series. Is this a viable method?

Can I effectively improve my German language skills just by watching plenty of German TV shows and films?

I am learning Spanish and I need more help with my listening skills. I decided to try watching movies in Spanish thinking the visual may be able to help me understand. However, I found that the spoken language in the movies is much different (at least to my untrained ear) from the dialect/accent that I am used to hearing and have been using to learn. I decided the Spanish subtitles might help bridge the gap as my reading comprehension is much higher. But in the movies I have chosen, I have realized that the words on screen do not correspond directly with the spoken words.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Are they just the movies I’m picking with bad translations?

If it has been a problem for anyone else, did you just watch a ton of movies until you started to pick it up on your own?

Subtitles and spoken language are widely different in movies?

I’m interested in learning Russian, but due to interests in other languages, I think it would be best just to learn how to read and understand spoken Russian.

I don’t plan to live in a Russian speaking area or visit it a lot, my main motivation for it is pure interest and an interest in history. If I do change my mind and decide I want to be able to speak it, then it shouldn’t be too hard with all the input, right?

Has anyone else learned a language like this? I’ve heard how hard Russian is, but would you say it’s slightly easier since I’m not interested in the output side?

I've been living abroad for 9 months now (one semester at Berlin and one at Frankfurt, studying linguistics and historical linguistics), was roughly high B1/low B2 when I started, and I'm still B2 now. I've just done an Erasmus+ online language test and apparently I'm C1 reading comprehension, C1 listening comprehension, but only B2 grammar, and B2 vocabulary.

Main question:For those of you who have made the jump from B2 to C1 (or even to C2) how did you do it? What tips worked for you? It seems like - at this stage - there's just too much to learn in all directions. How is one even supposed to find, learn, and apply such rare vocab and grammar? (Or maybe I'm making some basic assumptions wrong)

Best, Sly

How to make the jump from B2 to C1

I think /r/languagelearning/wiki/index is an incredible resource but the amount of information there overwhelms me.I aim to build 'basic communication with a native' skills in mandarin and russian and I know that i'll have to rely on online apps/material/audio/video/podcasts for the same.

Those who have been on this journey before,what level of proficiency were you able to obtain.Was it worth the effort?

How To Use Movies To Learn a Language

When reading something in your target language, how do you go about it:

1.) Just marking things you don't understand as you go along, but not stopping and only going back to translate/look things up once you're done?

2.) Stopping each time you run into something you don't understand, to look it up?

3.) Something else???

And whenever you do look it up, what do you do with this new word/phrase/sentence - notes? Flashcards? Or (intentionally) do nothing?

I'm still a beginner Spanish learner, finding things to read in Spanish, and trying to figure out how I should approach them once I do.

Hello, I'm looking around for a language partner who can help me learn Sorani Kurdish. I speak English and Farsi.

I realize that this is a pretty rare language but I mind as well give it a shot.

Hi, does anybody know an online website where you can do video language exchanges. I have a friend and his son is 10 years old he is a Chinese boy and he wants to learn English. He can speak some English already, maybe we can find for example an American kid who wants to learn Chinese and they can video call and have a language exchange every week. Does this exist? Thanks :)

I’m asking because, apart from English and other central europe languages (french, german), a friend of mine told me to learn an exotic language such as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, etc.

I was more inclined to Russian since I heard that learning Chinese or any other Asian language is very hard.

What do you think of learning Russian?

As an European student, is Russian a good language to learn?

Imagine you’re going on holiday to a foreign country and already know the basic “hello” and “thank you”. What if you could learn one more sentence before you get there? Which one would you pick? Forget about “Where is the train station?” or “What time is the next bus?” We all know that the best

A unique language learning invention

I'm a native Welsh speaker from Ceredigion in the West of Wales (or mid Wales, depending on perspective), I come from a Welsh speaking family, was educated in Welsh from nursery through my NVQ (in cookery), my church is in Welsh, my workplace is primarily Welsh, I read books and write in my journal In Welsh etc. and I think that although we have made a lot of progress and the percentage of Welsh speaking young families, children educated in Welsh medium schools and even of people invoking their right to government services in Welsh is steadily rising, and there is more Welsh popular media than there has ever been, if our language is to survive it's important for people to know how to teach the language. I don't know how to do that, I don't know about our morphology or how to describe the language in an academic sense, I just know how to speak, read and write in Welsh. How do I learn how to teach my language?

I absolutely adore the French language.. always have, even since I was a kid. I've already spent some time learning French but fell off the wagon for about a year now.

I'd like to get back into it, but stuck on the fence between:

  1. Learning French. I absolutely adore this language, but admittedly live in the USA and don't have anyone to speak French with. I also have no way of knowing if I'll ever be able to actually be around any French speaking population/group.

  2. Learning Spanish. I like Spanish, but it's not my #1 language love. I'd definitely get more use out of this language because it's much easier to find other Spanish-speaking people, especially where I'm moving (California).

I know I can learn both, but I don't know if I'll have the discipline/willpower/determination to learn both.

Any advice/personal experiences with this kind of thing? Thanks in advance!
