  1. Introducing my website!

    I just followed your link and checked your website.MY first impression is: its a great site, the design is good and it is easy to navigate. I am yet to explore your site, though. I will see if your website will be helpful to me or not. I am also a language learner, I am looking to brush my English and learn French
  2. Language Teaching/Learning Survey

    So you are designing a language app, how many languages you are using for this app, or this is just one language learning app? I will check your links and see if I can answer any of your questions.
  3. Pictorial Teaching

    Pictures are very helpful in learning language. Children are taught using picture books and they learn pretty past. To make the children know about cat, it is more helpful to show them the picture of cat instead of explain in words. This is also true with adults. If you are learning English, it is better to show you a picture of cat to help you learn the word cat instead of explain in second language.
  4. The easiest language to learn is your mother tongue. You will learn your mother tongue even if you don't study it. You will be learning your mother tongue just by listening to your parents and other people speaking. Another easiest language to learn is the language that is spoken by people around you. For example, you are in a foreign country and you don't speak their language, however, every now and then you hear people speaking the language, without knowing it you will be l;earning it.
  5. How dedicated are you?

    I want to add more to what I have stated above. You cannot dedicate yourself to something that does not interest. Therefore you need to be interested in the language that you are studying, once you are interested, you can dedicated to learn it, which will bring positive results. Additionally, you also need time. If you do not have time, how can youdedicate yourself.
  6. Beelinguapp: Two languages side by side

    So you are the creator of this app. I use an Android phone and I will check your app on Google Play.Hopefully, this app will be very useful for me. I not only want to improve my English but also want to learn another international language.
  7. Most common language

    English is the most common language. English is spoken more as a second language than the first language. More people are studying English as a second language than the English as the first language.
  8. Influenced By TV or Music?

    I learned Hindi by watching Hindi TV channels and Hindi movies. I have been watching Hindi TV shows and Hindi movies since I was a child. I have never looked into Hindi language learning book, however, I am good at reading and listening, my understanding of the language is more than 90 percent. My spoken and written Hindi is just about 70 percent.
  9. Currently, am trying to learn French by self study and self practice, many years ago, after going to French class for two months, gave up learning French. Time management was my main issue. I was working to make a living,thus, I could not find time for the class. I tried to learn in home, however, after a tired day,. I could not muster motivation to open my language book.
  10. Finding the time to practice

    When I am learning a language, finding time to practice is my main concern. Since I am a professional and I have to make a living by working more than 8 hours in a day, I cannot find time to learn the language. I work from home thus even during the weekends, I work. Thus I cannot find time to practice even during the weekend. Because of this problem, I have given up learning a new language.
  11. When someone catches my wrong pronunciation, I feel embarrassed, however, I readily accept my shortcoming and learn the work. When I catch wrong pronunciation, I stop the speaker and tell him the right way o pronounce the wold. If he accepts my correction, I will be teaching him again next time, however, if he does not accept his mistake, I will not correct him in future.
  12. How many words per day on memrise?

    I don't use Memrise. However, I have couple of dictionary apps which send me one word every day and I learn that work. Usually, I am learning two words in English every day
  13. Language App frustrations

    I am learning language traditional way. Looking into the books, learning words from dictionary, speaking with the mirror, listening to the audio. I am aware about some language learning tools,however, I have not used them. The problem with language learning apps is I need to be online and slow internet is a big problem here.
  14. I don't think English is the easiest language. I began learning English at the age of 3. I studied in English medium school for 12 years. When I went to college,English was the teaching language, even in university, English was the primary language. Still I have stilted English.
  15. If you go to a language class, you will learn the language even if your don't find time to learn at home, you are at least learning the language in the class. Unless you have a strict routine, and you stick the the routine, it is very difficult to lean at home.
