      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. A mí creo que los dialectos más fáciles serían los del oeste del Río Mississippi o tal vez los cercanos a Londres. Creo que esos son los más estándares entre todas las variaciones del inglés. Sobre todo el hecho que el inglés tiene tantas variaciones en la pronunciación es el desafío verdadero por ellos que quieren aprenderlo dado que por lo mayor los idiomas europeas (y de otras partes en general) son totalmente o casi totalmente fonéticas. Yo que tú no me preocuparía por como sea mi acento. Es más importante que aprendas la gramática irregular o la multitud de vocabulario que tendrás que superar si quieres hablar con fluidez. ¡Buena suerte!
  2. Well, I think for a lot of people, Spanish is a prerequisite. I agree that German, French, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese are all super helpful in international business, but I think maybe you should add Spanish to that list as well, it's at least worth some time. Also, I would suggest Korean because it is another attractive language for businesspeople. It is also hard, writing and reading aren't too difficult, but the grammar is quite different from European languages. Either way, what really matters isn't what to learn but how much you can realistically learn. You'll probably get farther in Spanish or French in a few months than several years in Chinese or Japanese. That's just my opinion though. No real right answer. Just find a language you are really good at and learn it thoroughly.
  3. Rosetta Stone

    In my experience, I have found a lot of programs that cost lots of money tend to be scams. Even methods like Rosetta Stone tend to substitute practical learning with things that aren't very helpful – you don't really have a grasp of the language, a true understanding of it. I believe that there are better and cheaper products. I think for beginners, Duolingo has a wide variety of languages to choose from and requires you to manipulate sentences even though they might be nonsensical. Also, nothing is better than practicing with fluent speakers, there is really nothing better for a learner than practical application.
