      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. I am leading a new project called www.speakmates.com where we are trying to let Language Mentors and people seeking to practice speaking a language find each other, meet in a cafe in small groups and socialize while practicing a language. We would be very happy to have you in our community, get your feedbacks and any support you might want to offer. Registering, creating and listing a language meetup is completely free for now, we are financing ourselves and we are planning to keep it free as much as possible.
  2. I am trying to learn Japanese in Japan and it is proving really difficult with Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji alphabets, Hiragana and Katakana somehow ok but Kanji is really tough for me. I would say speaking and understanding Japanese can be challenging as well since there are many different ways of saying the same thing but still this should not be a very different than learning any other language but reading and writing is a whole lot of different story. I assume it is the same for Chinese. Having said that, I see many friends around me who are quite good at Kanji which is the most difficult alphabet (basically originated from China) among three, this means if you are really into it you can do. Learning Japanese and Japan would be very interesting and unique experience, this is for sure.
