      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. How many words per day on memrise?

    I've never used memrise but I view 50-75 new cards in my Anki decks every day for Spanish, English and Swedish.
  2. Could any of you check my Swedish pronunciation? Please. Here is my recording: https://www.speakpipe.com/voice-recorder/msg/xu6hyi5tg0sgwz22 Here`s the word list: snö, hel, byta, bita, fluga, kung, prata, mat, matt, hål, kylskåp, skön, kön, björn, gräs, svärd, magnet, ben, sten, resa, ögonbryn, övrmorgon.
  3. It`s good to know that there`s someone from Sweden. Perhaps, in the future I`ll ask you to help me by chatting with me via Skype. For now, I`m at level A2 with my Swedish so it`s too soon. I got those minimal pairs from forvo.
  4. This method: https://sendvid.com/v7r7ffmv Forvo (a site with recorded words-mp3). You have to be registered to download files (it`s free): http://forvo.com/ An images searcher; http://images.google.com/search?q=Type+your+search+here&tbm=isch&sout=1 Anki: http://ankisrs.net/ Dictionary: http://www.spanishdict.com/
  5. I want to ask somoeno who is a Swedish native speaker to read and record a few minimal-pairs (similar sounding words) for me. So any Swede here?
  6. Does anybody know any book (or a course, a film etc.) about teaching English without knowing students native language? I mean students who begin studying English or are at most at level A2.
  7. What do you think about usinng Memory Palace for remembering a target language vocabulary? http://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Memory-Palace
  8. Muchisimas gracias, amigo!

    I`m going to try this application (on android) for Spanish learning and I`ll let you know about my impressions.
  10. Where can I test my Spanish level for free? I`m looking for at least a descent online test.
  11. http://phandroid.com/2014/07/09/best-android-apps-for-learning-spanish-japanese-languages/ I just found it!
  12. This is not my method, I just found it at another internet site and I`m curious, what do you think about it.
  13. Is there any? If not, I think that is a good idea to create it. Edit: Got it! Where have my eyes been.
  14. I`m learning both languages (Sapnish and English) and I see many similarities in grammar (tenses) and in vocabulary (cognates). I guess, I see them in grammar due I`m a Pole. In Polish language we`ve got only three tenses. Any way, thereby I`m fluent in English, I`ve a lot less problems with learning Spanish, especially with the memorization of vocabulary.
  15. @Blaveloper Dziękuję, kolego! Actually, I`ve started to use SpanishPod101 but after a couple of days I lost motivation to use it because, like you just wrote, it looks like a scum... But I`ll give it a try once again. I`ll definitely try InnovativeLanguage. Thank you once again. What do you think about Lang-8? Have you try it?
