  1. Mouth Structure and Language

    Thanks for sharing this, I do think it is very much possible as this may be my problem too. I am a native English speaker but I had a hard time learning Spanish pronunciations as I could not roll the R's etc. Then I decided to do French as I wouldn't have the R's to deal with, then to my surprise I am still having a great challenge saying words such as "lettre" no matter how much I try to practice.
  2. I have recently started using Duolingo and the translations are my biggest issues. Whenever the computes is saying words like sommes/ pommes I am unsure if it is that they are saying somme/pomme as they seem to be pronounced the same way. Nothing is as ideal as having a native teaching the pronunciations though.
  3. Freebie apps

    Thanks a lot, I think I am going to try Anki as I need to practice my speech and learn to listen and understand instead of just learning a few words then I am not able to comprehend what they are saying. I enjoy the speech lessons on Duoingo too as that is my weakest area yet, I have a hard time with the pronunciations.
  4. I am blushing and these are not being said to me even though I am just learning French and is struggling with the pronunciations, I will definitely be saying some of these to my boyfriend. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Duolingo is awesome, just started using it but hoping they don't plan on charging any time soon. I think regardless of any program you choose, it is wise to have a native help you with the pronunciations as that is my biggest problem yet.
  6. Hello everyone, I recently started my French lessons on Duolingo but I am having such a hard time with the pronunciation of certain words. I am a native English speaker so I am not used to those twists and turns of the tongue to get the proper pronunciation. For example, I was trying to say "lettre" but can't say the last part the way it is supposed to be said. My tongue is so stubborn, any advice on how to get my tongue to move to the rythm? Lmao :wacky:
  7. Freebie apps

    I wanted something that is a 100 percent free, so now I am working with Duolingo. I am enjoying it thus far and I have learnt a bit. Let's see how far I can get with it.
  8. Hello, Bonjour!

    Bonjour Florence, I am a native English speaker but I am just learning French with Duolingo but would appreciate any additional help as I am just at level 2. Too bad I cannot help you with Spanish but there a lot of native Spanish speakers here that will be more than happy to assist you. Certainly hope you enjoy your stay here.
  9. Finishing Duolingo

    Congratulations, you just have to keep practicing though as practice makes perfection. I just started using Duolingo last night to learn French and it is going well so far. Will be dedicating at least an hour a day to it, to see how fast I can learn.
  10. Loving Duolingo

    I downloaded the Duolingo app for Android phones last night and I was up so late enjoying it. I have learnt so much already because of the whole set up,it is more like a game to me than an average learning app, so much more fun and easier to use. Have you guys ever tried it?
  11. Rosetta Stone

    I have heard more good than bad about Rosetta Stone as I was contemplating purchasing the software. There are several reviews online that may be helpful, you just have to weigh the pro's and cons in deciding if it is the ideal program for you.
  12. Freebie apps

    I need an app that I can use on my phone, on the go both on and offline. The app should teach French and Spanish, both audio and visual aspects of the language. I have an android phone and my journey to work is normally long and boring so that is the time I would use it most. Any suggestions?
  13. Please punctate this sentence correctly

    Elenamarie is correct. There are more possible answers Traveler but you cannot use a conjunction to start a sentence, Then is a conjunction which should be used in a sentence to join points.
  14. Thanks for this site and also the fact that it is free. I am using my phone now but not sure if it will be compatible, don't want to use my data but will be trying it as soon as I am home. Will be using it pretty often once it is useful.
  15. Learn any language on your phone's lockscreen

    Sounds rather interesting, I will give it a shot as I mostly use my phone to do various things online.
