Experiences using LingQ

What are you guy’s experiences using LingQ and how did you progress in your language?

Since I am really busy with school, I only really use LingQ for my Spanish.

How can I spend less time intensely focusing and more time comprehending and absorbing vocabulary?

First time posting here, hope it's the right place.

I have been learning Japanese seriously for the past 2-3 years. I made great/quick progress learning lots of kanji etc. in a short period of time. Perhaps this is the reason for the issues I'll explain, but I'd like to know the subs opinion.

I find that when studying advanced native level texts (I have JLPT N2 but have failed N1 three times), I spend so much time trying to remember all the kanji I know (I forget and recall them at seemingly random times) and get through the sentences that:

1) my speed is incredibly slow 2) I frequently check my knowledge by stopping to look up even easy words which I learned long ago and that I should be firmly confident in 3) I get exhausted just getting through and by the end of it, I barely recall what I read or miss the entire large picture. 4) I don't absorb the words and feel like at the end it was a futile effort.

3 and #4 are the most crushing for me personally.

I don't know if this is a symptom of the incredible dopamine-surging internet surf culture - I have a problem with tons of tabs open on my chrome, "multi-tasking" all the time, etc. I put multi-tasking in quotes because I agree with some studies that don't even believe this is possible for humans and that we simply switch focuses/tasks extremely quickly.

Anyway, I'm just wondering what is going on with me. I have been trying to focus intently on one single thing to be able to improve my reading ability again in both English & Japanese. When I was 12-14 years old I could finish a 1000 page book in 3-5 days. Now, I struggle to finish one article without stopping and doing something else mid-way. I feel this is why I have failed N1 three times now.

Could I be dealing with a language issue or general issue? I suspect its both. But would like your advice on the Japanese primarily please.

Thank you

Posting YouTube videos into the void for practicing a language?

Hi, everyone! I recently watched a YouTube video about how to efficiently do language exchanges and meet native speakers to practice your target language. One of the suggestions really caught my attention: post videos on YouTube of yourself speaking your target language.

Being a relatively shy person, I never gave this idea any thought. But now I'm wondering if any of you perhaps have any experience posting videos of yourself speaking in your target language about things you love (your interests in general), and whether you ever received feedback or found communities stemming from there.

If yes, have you found that you've improved at all in your target language? Or, have you fossilized some speaking errors since no one was there to correct you? Do you think it's a viable endeavor?

I'd really appreciate any thoughts, opinons, criticism, comments, and more. :) Thanks much.

Need help decrypting and/or translating song lyrics, its too hard for me.

Theres an avant-garde metal band called Unexpect, or was i should say as they have disbanded. They often use different languages in their lyrics, speak them backwards. (google translator cant find anything, even if i turn it around again) But i know it has to make sense somehow because in other songs it does: For example in their song Desert Urbania: " Enu edayon éikerppa" is backwards french for an appreciated drowning or smth. which doesnt really make sense i guess but they are definetely words so..

In their song summoning scenes they use the phrase: Nydes Elense ; Soï Nokelende

Im making a lyric video for this song, and id like to be able to translate this. Hard to do. I asked google for 2 hours. I even tried to get in touch with old band members and ask them. Nothing worked. A BIG COOKIE to anyone who manages to figure this out. All i can go on is: they have used backwards french before. They are a band from quebec, but they also had some hungarian band members i think. The only thing google translator managed was: Elense backwards is Esnele, which seems to mean "the essence" in Estonian. But i dont even know if thats random or actually what is meant.

Help pls?

Is it true that Hangul is the MOST logical alphabet like many people claimed?

And you can actually read that alphabet fluently after learning it on a 12 hours flight, from Seul to London?

I made an Chrome extension that helps write accents.

Hello, everyone. As a high school student learning a foreign language, I often found difficulty in typing accents on my Windows computer. I made a Google Chrome extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/accents/laiognlohmgkmlfchcclnjnafgeinnpg) that fixes this problem. It emulates a very easy, popup system from newer versions of macOS. It would really mean a lot if you checked it out and maybe left a review. Thanks!

Language Learning for Logical Thinkers

Hi all,

For a long time I have had stabs at learning languages, first french and spanish in school to no avail, then eventually German over duolingo.

It's always enjoyable at first, but I struggle with long-term retention of structure and language - especially because I'm a very logical and methodological thinker. Foreign language is especially difficult because of this because it lacks clear logic in grammar, spelling, structure; when it comes to male and female words as an English speaker I especially have no clue as there's no logic and it doesn't have anything in common with my own language.

But, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had this issue. I still want to one day learn to speak another language, ideally German (or Hebrew/French/Spanish), and am looking for tips from you guys if you have experienced the same issues. Thanks!

In what way is a private tutor helpful

The core parts of a language are speaking, listening, reading and writing. Now, I get how a private tutor could help with speaking and writing, but how can a private tutor actually teach listening and reading?

I'm looking for a new private tutor (tutors actually) and want to use my time wisely as the hourly rate is steep. I know that there are many of you out there who have gotten a private tutor, what are your tips, what should you get from a private tutor, what should you be able to do after a lesson (a certain category)?

In short: what can a private tutor teach you that you can not teach yourself (or at least, where hiring a private tutor is far more efficient than doing it yourself).
