  2. Hi, I started a project of comparing language schools abroad as I've studied for some time in Spain, I started with this. The website is still a bit of a work in progress but it is getting along. I compare the language schools and calculate their cost down to the minute so that you get the clearest picture of the cost will be without any hidden fees or being surprised by very short lessons. You can also speak to former students of the language schools. Have a look at the website.. it is going to be the best to Compare language schools and learn language abroad . Thank you!
  3. Breathing well will support your voice. Singing when there's no breath left is a common way of tiring your voice. Follow the steps below to help improve your breathing. Breathe deeply from your lower lungs - imagine a rubber ring around your waist (your diaphragm) Breathe in and try to push the ring outwards. Breathe in through your nose and out through your nose and mouth. Avoid raising your shoulders as you breathe in - keep them relaxed and level. Relax! Tension will prevent you from making a good sound.

  7. Hello Natw I leave you a personal message.
  8. Hello, I'm looking for help in learning the German language as I frequently visit and would love to participate in a conversation rather than a word here and there
  9. Hello, I am new to the forum and looking for help in learning the German language. I visit there three times a year and I'm embarrassed that the hotel owners have learnt the English language to accommodate us Brits. Any help is greatly appreciated Thanks Natalie
  10. I'm German and I have some questions to native english speakers. I'm curious to hear your answers!^^ 1. What is it like to have a language as a mother tongue that is spoken all over the world? I mean, if you come to other countries the chance is high that at last some people can speak English. In Germany it's most people. Does it suprise you, or do you think it's just natural? 2. I supose most songs played in your radios are English. In Germany also most of the songs are English and only a few are German. What does it feel like to hear songs in another language? Is it strange to hear a song that you don't understand? For me it's normal. (Of course I understand English, but I also listen to songs in other languages.) And are there also songs played in English radios in other languages? 3. What's up with the word "goddess"? Why do you pronounce it as "goodness"? Where does the n come from and why is it like oo and not o? 4. I've heard there is a superstition in the US that you have to hold your breath while being on a cemetery. But what do the people believing in this do at a funeral? And sometimes you are longer at a cemetery than 10 seconds when going to church, aren't you? 5. And there is this groundhog-think with his shadow and so on, right? (If it doesn't see his shadow, it's spring.) But how do you do this superstition? Maybe I've gotten this wrong, but do you really watch these animals then? I don't think it will work. Or is it just like a saying? And wouldn't it make more sense if the shadow would mean spring, cause it's sunny? 6. There are many "kinds" of English all over the world, like British English, American English, Australian... Does it still feel to you like English, just like a dialect, or is it something completely different? 7. If you are in other countries, do you just speak to people in English, because you expect them to understand you, or do you try it in their native language?
  11. Hey, introducing myself on a forum seems weird, but here goes: I'm a 24 year old girl from Ontario, Canada. I've been "sort of" learning French for most of my life but never really grasped it, and am determined at this point in my life to become fluent, specifically in Quebecois French. I'm also interested in learning Spanish, Italian, and Korean, but I think I'll just start off with the French! I'm a native English speaker and am very passionate about writing, so I hope to be of help to those looking to learn English as well!

  15. I think it comes in very handy to know how to write with the proper stroke order when you're trying to decipher someone's handwritten note. Think about it, wouldn't it just suck to be fluent but not to understand a note on your fridge? Natives are often so used to writing kanjis that they scribble them instead of writing them clearly, which of course makes the reading trickier... Besides, you'll have to write to take the test, right? My Japanese professor in university used to have us redo entire exercise pages if we got the strokes wrong on an answer, he always said he could tell. He said that once we'd get good at it we'd start scribbling too, and then having the stroke order down properly would be crucial.
  16. Simone de Beauvoir remarked that in French, “most abstract entities are feminine” (The Second Sex, trans. H.M. Parshley, 1978, p.179). This is probably true; e.g., French word critique means “criticism” as a feminine noun, but “critic” as a masculine noun. I'd like to know (1) if there's any statistics proving her claim, and (2) if others especially linguists have made the same or a similar statement. Thank you! Note: I'm not interested in finding out if there's any morphological and semantic justification for her observation because there's probably none. Nor am I interested in associating grammatical gender with human gender, as Ms. Beauvoir probably assumed.
  17. Memrise is a company that offers hundreds if not thousands of on line learning apps without any sort of rating system. You have to try them out and find what works for you. From my experience, the memrise German A1 and A2 apps are outstanding but this is offset by other memrise apps that I felt were not at all helpful. So it is just not possible to generalize and suggest that memrise is good or bad. Some of its courses are good and some are bad. You have to try out a few and find what you are looking for and ignore the rest.
  18. We all learn somewhat differently. In addition as our learning progresses we have changing needs. I had looked at Memrise A2 about a year ago and decided it was way to difficult for me. More recently I took a second look and found that now it is just right for me. I needed hearing practice, i.e., audio word recognition practice along with my requirement to constandly expand my vocabulary and Memrise is giving me exactly what I need at this time. It pays to become familiar with a variety of language learning tools in my opinion.
  19. I don't share with you the same point of view, for someone who doesn't speak Arabic as his mother tongue, he mustn't begin with the one used in the Quran simply because it's too strong to understand
  20. Nice article, thank you Chemist
  21. Hi Mikel, Your interest in learning this language is beautiful, although you have to be aware that it's not such an easy language, but it's not at all impossible to learn it And I think that among the best methods to learn a language is to listen too much to audios or podcasts or other If you like novels and stories I can choose a few and you save them in audio format good luck

  25. When I was studying Japanese literature in university, my professor recommended all those mentionned by @Mim, as well as Maihime (舞姫) by Mori Ogai, Rashomon (羅生門) by Akira Kurosawa(though it was probably because we then watched the film and compared them), and I Am a Cat (吾輩は猫である) and Botchan (坊っちゃん) by Nastume Sôseki. Of course, as first year students, we only read the translated works to get an idea of the content, so I can't really give you my opinion on any of them in its original version.
  26. Hi, I didn't take any of the test, but my mother is in charge of the TOEFL training in her university, so I got to test it for it for fun. It seems that the TOEFL is the test preferred by universities, as it mostly focuses on grammar, whereas the TOEIC is more field-specific, and thus more likely to be required by a company. Though it is subjective. I expect you'd have to have a very good TOEFL score for a job which required you to write in English. As for the IELTS, from what I know, in France only students applying for masters in the States take it. Hope I was of some help.
  27. Hi, Which one is correct? And why? Ich gehe zum Treffen. Ich gehe für treffen. Ich gehe zum Fußball spielen. Ich gehe für Fußball spielen. Thanks....
