I'd like to request a recommendation to learn French from a Portuguese speaking source.

Hi, I've tried to learn French with a British tutor and realized it was a bit hard for me to memorize words and progress with the lessons. I'm Brazilian and believe that would be more effective if I try to learn from my native language instead from English. I've tried to find a Portuguese tutor or course here in London, but failed. Had a look on YouTube, but it seems they only have those 3 hours long videos.

Is there any podcast or interactive course I can purchase you guys find effective?

Thanks in advance. :)

SLOWLY app

Hey guys, basically i found an app that you can send virtual messages that takes a few hours to get to the other user. Simulating actual mail and making penpals.

I thought this app was perfect for this community, since you can have conversations with a native speaker in your preferred language and you have the whole time in the world to make your messages and garantee that they are perfect. Also, the other person could correct you, if you asked.

Idk, tell me your thoughts

Do you train abstract vocabulary any differently than more concrete terms?

For myself I notice repetitious Anki drilling of concrete words is straightforward while abstract vocabulary doesn't quite work as fast or as well. Do you guys deal with this too? What changes have you made to internatize difficult, more abstract terms?

Learning a second foreign language?

Hello! I started learning English 3 years ago. Although I was exposed to that language from very little I decided to start studing fairly recently in my life.

Lately I was thinking of starting a new language such as Chinese. But I'm afraid that starting a new language would make me spend more time to that than my main target language which is English. Also this time would be more valuable in mastering English.

I've heard studying more than one foreign languages makes you more productive and the learning process is more efficient.

What do you think?

Learning Kristang

Recently, I've found our about a language called kristang and it seems really interesting. I've already made a plan to start studying it next year. All I'd like to know is, for people learning Kristang, what made you decide to learn it in the first place, and what should I be looking out for when I do start learning it

Writing prompt: original short stories - horror genre

No responses at all to last week's poll (or responses! At all! Someone tell me I'm not shadowbanned or something? :c ), so a new prompt this week! This one came by anonymous suggestion through the poll form.

In your target language, of course...write a short story of your own creation, in the horror genre.

Whether you're just starting out and giving it a go with "Three people died in a house. Now, there are three ghosts." or you've been learning a while and want to make everyone on this post shiver in their seats with an eerie tale of cold, dead faces beneath the waters of a Yorkshire marsh, and the backpacker on a winter night who hears a splash in the reeds behind them and feels a rattling, wet breath on the back of their neck - give it a go writing as much as you can! (You can steal that last idea if you like - it's not based on anything, it's just generally spooky!)

I do a creative fiction themed writing prompt post at about this time every week. Join this chat if you'd like to be notified with a link when the weekly post goes up.

Want a say in future prompt posts in this series? Fill out a quick three-question form!

:D

Irish/British English: How to use "sir" and "ma'am"

Hiya! I'm a 30F native English speaker from the southern/Midwestern United States.

In my culture, you say "sir" or "ma'am" to anyone roughly your parents' age or older or to show respect. It's also a common courtesy when talking to another adult you don't know, especially if they're doing you a favor or a service in some way. This is not common in other parts of North America, but people generally aren't bothered by it. They might just laugh and say you don't need to call them that or something if it makes them uncomfortable.

Last year I went to a work convention in Dublin. I asked a few shopkeepers for directions at different points, and met people of all ages in pubs and at a concert I went to. Literally every Irish and British people I met seemed genuinely offended if I used honorifics. I eventually just tried to drop it, but I was puzzled. Our interactions would be perfectly pleasant, then I would say "yes ma'am" and they'd go all stiff and make a comment about "I don't think I need to be called ma'am" or something. This happened at least 3 or 4 times. I felt bad--i liked them and was trying to be polite! In my mind, I should show a little extra respect because I was a guest in their country and they were showing me kindness by having a chat or giving me directions.

So how do y'all use "sir" and "ma'am"? Is it just for small children to authority figures? Is it in some way offensive when one adult days it to another? If any other non-US native English speakers are in here, can you share how you use it? I'm especially interested in learning how to communicate the different cultural norms to my Spanish-speaking language nerd friends!

Is it me, or is the Dutch language a mix of French and German?

From what I have seen, (which is relatively little, truth be told,) the language just seems to be a mix between German and French.

What are some easy topics that you have encountered in your target language?

Have you ever come across a grammar rule or structure and think, "wow that's easy compared to other stuff"? Or is there something your target language has that you wish existed in your native language?

Learn to read and write a language without speaking it?

I've studied a few languages. Hell, I minored in French. I can't speak it. I hate the sound of French coming out of my stupid Unfrench mouth. And if you speak to me, I will not understand you. We'll come back to this point.

I've been considering a new language. Japanese is at the top of my list. I dread trying to hear and speak it, though. I have been thinking, maybe just forgo all that. Just learn how to read and type it.

Let's go back to that point I made earlier. If you speak French to me, I will not understand you. Here's the reality: this simply never comes up. This is what I've begun to realize. There's no point in my day where I am hearing French. I just read French and write French - that's it. I don't speak it to anyone. Ever. Not a tremendous amount of French being spoken in Texas these days. Japanese would be much the same. I learn a language because I choose to, not because it would open doors for me.

Would I be out of my mind to just learn how to read and write a language, and just completely skip the audio portion? Other than "if you go to Japan, instead of awkwardly spitting out a few sentences you'll just order in English instead" there doesn't seem to be a ton of downside. Of course I'm curious to hear what others think of this idea.

Moving to Italy for about a year, what would you guys suggest for learning Italian before and during my time there?

I’m moving to Italy in a few months for about a year. For those of you that have traveled to other countries and learnt the language there, do you have any pro tips? I’m pretty much coming into this blindly, so just about any advice is appreciated.

What do people expect from iTalki Community Tutors?

I currently would like to be an ESL/EFL teacher in the future, so I was thinking that doing some stuff on iTalki at the moment would be good experience (kind of), plus I would enjoy doing it. But I don't have any kind of experience or qualifications at the moment. I know that the community tutors are people who don't have qualifications in the first place, but what do people expect of them? I just don't want to be wasting other people's time (or mine) if I'm not going to be useful without knowing what I'm doing.

Do people expect me to speak English or their language? Am I supposed to be coming up with things to do or do they bring stuff to me? That sort of thing.
Any input is welcome, thanks :)

natalie portman reaction to barbie larson lifting thor's hammer (persian/farsi news) واکنش ناتالی پورتمن به بلند کردن چکش تور توسط کاپیتان مارول

natalie portman reaction to barbie larson lifting thor's hammer (persian/farsi news) واکنش ناتالی پورتمن به بلند کردن چکش تور توسط کاپیتان مارول

واکنش ناتالی پورتمن به بلند کردن چکش تور توسط کاپیتان مارول

https://i.redd.it/684urwdu6ii31.jpg

جنجال بر سر کاپیتان مارول در اینستاگرام

برای اینکه به کاپیتان مارول بگویید آرام باش باید ناتالی پورتمن (جین فاستر) باشید

ناتالی پورتمن قرار است در نقش قبلی اش یعنی جین فاستر به فیلم جدید MCU یعنی Thor: Love and Thunder برگردد

سه روز پیش بری لارسون بازیگر نقش کاپیتان مارول، عکسی از خودش هنگام بلند کردن پتک تور را در اینستاگرام به اشتراک گذاشت

https://i.redd.it/pcn1tbxk6ii31.png

و زیر آن نوشت گفتم می توانم بلندش کنم که مربوط به مصاحبه ای با بازفید برزیل است که در آن از او پرسیده شد آیا کاپیتان مارول می تواند پتک توررا بلند کند؟. همین کافی بود تا ناتالی پورتمن به او واکنش دهد

ناتالی پورتمن نه تنها به عنوان نقشش برمیگردد بلکه نقش تور را نیز بر عهده دارد. صبر کنید تور؟

بله تور. این طور که معلوم هست در فیلم Thor: Love and Thunder تور باید به گونه ای از وظیفه اش سرپیچی کند یا لیاقت خود را از دست دهد و جین فاستر باید جای او را بگیرد

پستی که لارسون به اشتراک گذاشته است تا الان ۱/۸ میلیون لایک گرفت است و باعث شد ناتلی پورتمن سریع جوابی بدهد.

پورمن نوشت: هی قوی هیکل… حواست به پتک من باشه

واکنش پورتمن به کاپیتان مارول تا الان ۵۰ هزار بار لایک شده و نشان دهنده رقابت بین دو بازیگر MCU است

بازیگر بلک پنتر، مایکل بی جوردن نیز با فرستادن چند ایموجی خنده به آن واکنش نشان داد

برگشت جین فاستر

https://i.redd.it/ah5rbqct6ii31.jpg

اعلام برگشتن ناتالی پورتمن به تور در کامیک کان سندیگو امسال یکی از هیجان انگیز ترین خبر ها بود و باعث شدن همه عکس بلند کرن پتک تور توسط پورتمن را به اشتراک بگذارند

همیشه دیدن رقابت بازیگران مارول برای همه جالب بوده اما متاسفانه باید زمان زیادی بگذرد تا هر کدام از این ها را در سینما ها ببینیم

Thor: Love and Thunder تا ۵ نوامبر ۲۰۲۱ طول می کشد به سینما ها بیاید و درباره قسمت دوم کاپیتان مارول هم در کامیک کان سندیگو ۲۰۱۹ صحبتی نشد

امیدوارانه صحبت کنیم وقتی جین فاستر کاپیتان مارول را ببیند امکان دارد از او خوشش بیاید همان طور که تور خوشش آمد

فاز چهارم MCU

فار چهارم مارول کوتاه تر از دیگر فاز ها خواهد بود و فقط ۵ فیلم را شامل می شود:

بیوه سیاه(Black Widow)، اترنالز(The Eternals)، شنگ چی اند لجند اف تن دینگز(Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings)، دکتر استرنچ انتو دِ مولتی ورس اف مدنس( Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ) و تورلاو اند تاندر( Thor: Love and Thunder )

What if I listen to an audiobook in English and then read the corresponding part in other language I’m learning?

I speak and understand basic Spanish but I’m pretty good at learning from context. Could it be a good idea if for example I listen to a book on my way to work and back in English and then in the evening read those same chapters in Spanish?

How did you do Duolingo? I'm struggling.

I flew through many lessons and maxed out each thing before moving to the next. Something I have struggled with for all of my life is having somewhat of a photographic memory but I do not tend to retain that information for long. It has caused me to get wrong eye prescriptions even because I could memorize the entire chart and then it's like my brain convinced itself that it could actually read what was there despite the blurriness. So I guess does anyone have a suggestion for something that may be better? I subscribed to Duolingo plus but now I'm wondering if I should go with something like Pimsleur to help me retain it and not just to regurgitate visual information for short periods of time. I am going to reset my Duolingo tree and try to just go through it taking each thing to level 1 rather than level 5 to see if it helps but I am not hopeful. I know that it is important to learn to read it and write it as well as speak it...but I'm wondering if I should learn to speak and then come back once I have a solid grasp of that. I value any advice given aside from "just stop doing it" as obviously I've tried that but my brain isn't a fan of listening to me.
