  1. It's not my site but... I believe you all might find it useful. WordBrewery is a new website that pulls sentences from the news. They are then categorized by level and topic. There's also a search bar so you can find specific words in context. Audio, translation, and the source article are included. It's also possible to save words and sentences to lists, and export these to Anki. It's currently free to use. Like every other app, all you need to do is register. Personally... I use it for German, as it doesn't have Hindi yet. But it's rather nice, because it's hard to find advanced materials for many languages I'm interested in, such as Modern Greek and Arabic. I use it as a warm up and to find context to words. I'm also considering using Anki, so if I decide to, I'll start exporting all my lists.

It helps the learner to analyze and memorize the Chinese characters quickly. This approach to the Chinese language studying makes the whole process of learning easy and pleasant.

  14. I'm not sure if this is allowed. I am working with a freelance company (OneSpace) to identify freelance workers to assist with a project. We need people to transcribe audio files (no translation needed). There are multiple roles for each language needed. The project begins on 2/1 and is flexible work. You would work from home. All you need is a PayPal email address to be paid as your work is completed. To be considered, I can send you a 1-minute audio file to be transcribed. We are open to considering people without previous transcription experience as long as they have the necessary language skills. Thank you! Emily
  15. Greetings, I am new to the forum so I hope this post is appropriate. I work at a local independently owned book shop that specializes in antique, out of print, rare and vintage books. My boss came across a 15 volume set of book which appear to be in Korean. The spines of the books read "THE FOURTH DIMENSIONAL WORLD" while the slipcases read "UFO ENCOUNTERS: A PROBING EXHIBIT OF UFO PHENOMENA". Typically in North American and European publications, the publication info is printed on the title page with additional copyright info on the obverse side. However for this series, the publication is included on a tipped-in sheet affixed to the interior of the front board. The text is in Korean with the exception of a few English letters such as NHK which I recognized as the Japanese television network. I thought that maybe the NHK was involved in the publication as they've been behind a number of publications. I also referenced a chronology of their programs to see if maybe the series was an adaptation. Unfortunately, nothing. So I'm requesting a bit of help translating the title and publication info. I can post images of the books to aid the effort. Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
  16. Can someone here help me translate a document from english to one of the following languages: arabic, french, russian, chinese and german in order to add subtitles to a video? It's of very high importance, it exposes the CURE of schizophrenia and other important things related to it that no one has ever talked about. Humanity needs this message u r g e n t l y. If two or more people agree on helping me with one language, I can divide the document in two parts and so on. Thank you in advance.
  17. Salut tous le monde! I began to study French a few weeks ago and found a little bit difficult to practice on my own. It would be great to have someone to chat/text with. I'm fluent in English. And I can teach you Mandarin in return in you are interested in learning Chinese I look forward to your reply! Merci!
  18. Hello everyone, I have spent over 5 years learning languages. I am Chinese and now I have C1 level French and I just started learning German three months ago. The biggest difficulty I encountered is I can't speak the language even I know the grammar very well. It really helps me when I can talk to native speakers but they are not always available to teach me. Or sometimes the topic I have to talk with them, I can't express my ideas because of cultural or social differences. Then I was looking for a solution and I found this great idea called Language Exchange. It means, find someone who is learning my own mother language, instead this person speaks the language that I am trying to learn. It is a mutual-aid and with similar motivation we will be able to keep making progress. So I will send you this article about Language Conversation Exchange and hope you can let this method help you learn faster. Here is the link: Conversation Exchange: The Ultimate Guide It is a very good method and helps me to improve my language expressive ability very fast. Btw, I found some other people with the same problems as I do so we have spent a lot of time on doing this website and App to help connect people love languages.We launched our beta version already and Android/ iOS version will be launch in coming weeks. Hence I hope you will take a look at what we are doing, https://bilingua.io/ Trust me this is a great platform for you. I hope you will enjoy it as I do Luna

  22. I have a question and I have been wandering this a lot lately. Is it possible to learn chinese and japanese at the same time? Would I be confused with kanji-hanzi pronounciations. Japanese is pretty hard when you consider its grammar rules , how about chinese? I have been learning japanese for about 5 months , can you feed me with some much needed knowledge? Thank you again.
  23. So, I recently started learning Chinese for work. Since, I have to do it in a short time, I want to document my journey and perhaps obtain a learning framework for learning languages. Hopefully, my journey will help everyone else as well. I generally am able to learn things within 24 hours (if you count the actual hours). And so I have a bunch of techniques I use to learn things. I am not sure if they'll work for Mandarin, but I will try them nonetheless. Also, I would like to mention that speed learning is a real thing. If you want to learn the framework, look up the video or book "How to Get Good At Anything in 20 Hours". Learning objective: I should be able to converse in Mandarin fluently so as to conduct business meetings and communicate with people from the mainland. Scouting learning resources So, I went through a bunch of resources to see which one fits the bill. My goal was to find something that A) I am comfortable yet fast. Is easily accessible for continuous learning. C) Is free. So, with Mr. Google by my side, I started searching. I went to the bbc learning center online. I went through various other websites that claimed to teach Chinese. But, when I tried them out, I found them to be either too academic or too detailed (remember, I just want to converse and people will understand if I can't read literature). Finally, I googled "learn mandarin for business" and found this article and many like it about Zuckerberg. He's been learning Mandarin for 5 years now and he practices it everyday! Then, I went through a bunch of forums and reddits about it. Finally, I found a list of good android apps for learning Chinese. And I downloaded all the apps on the list and gave them a try. Out of all of those, I found Hello Chinese to be really helpful. So, that is the app that I am using right now. Low-Hanging Learning Objective: Learn Mandarin within 24 hours and then converse with someone in a real setting. Yesterday, I met someone who's agreed to show me how to learn Mandarin within 24 hours, which as you know is what I like to do when it comes to learning something. So, I may be letting go of the aforementioned app or using it simultaneously. I have already ordered a fresh batch of index/flash cards numbering about 300. Hopefully, they'll help me learn faster. I also read this article in the Guardian about this journalist learning Mandarin in 2 days and testing himself in an actual setting. So, I know it can be done. Here's the plan for the next few days: Stage 1. Find resources that claim to teach Chinese in 24 hours or less. Already found this site and this app. Stage 2. Try them out one by one. Create flashcards for memorizing things. Practice speaking and reading the language for about 10 hours. Stage 3. Practice listening to the language for 10 hours. Stage 4. Test listening skills by watching Chinese content online. Stage 5. Test conversation skills by going to a Chinese restaurant and striking a real life conversation. Stage 6. Come back. Take note of gaps. Improve. Rinse and Repeat until fluent. So, wish me luck guys. I will let you know how things go.
