  1. Hey~ I'm vrysius and I'm the American child of an Argentine, born and raised around Washington D.C. in the United States. My pronouns are He/They. I lived for a few years in NL and picked up a fair amount of fluency in Dutch from there, although I am out of practice and my grammar is probably terrible again. When I was a child, I wanted to learn every spoken language in the world, haha. Now I just want to be fairly familiar with at least one or two languages per continent. Unfortunately, with everything else I have to put energy into in my life, this might be kind of an unobtainable goal. I work by day in Networking and Systems Support, and have a strong desire to write and publish fiction. I am technically working on a novel and a video game script (in English). I am also becoming very people-oriented and invest a lot of time supporting my friends and family. Anyway...! I am currently primarily focused on increasing my fluency in Spanish. My mother was very invested in my English literacy to the point where she never spoke to me in Castellano and only taught me rudimentary basics when I got older. Some of it I actually rejected for a time and I am really hoping to be able to reclaim an important part of my background. Also, Spanish fluency is just a really good life and social community skill to have in my area. Outside of that, I have been wanting to increase German fluency out of fancy, and I want to learn ASL because I find it important for every hearing person to be able to assist the Deaf/HOH by learning ASL. Distant linguistic goals also include familiarity with Arabic and at least one major language from the African continent, but I have not chosen which would be meaningful or pragmatic enough to me to justify learning it without coming off like a language imperialist. Sorry I am verbose! I hope to gain a lot from this forum!

Often similarly spelt words have different pronunciations and alphabets remain silent in many words which make the pronunciations very peculiar and it takes consistent time and effort to remember and master them.

  13. Hi I need to write a text in german and i was wondering in anyone could read it and point out any problems with the grammar or sentences. I am a beginner in german and i wanna write a very simple text (simple sentences). I havent really figured out how to write umlauts on my keyboard so bear with me. (I suck with computers :-) ) Meine Reise nach Dublin. Sommer sind ich und meine Familie nach Dublin gefahren. Mein erste Tag in Dublin war viel spaB. Um 9 Uhr wecken ich habe fruhstuck. Nach den fruhstuck sind wir zuruck zu der Zimmer gegangen. Um 12 Uhr haben wir in der Stadt (shoppen?). Wir haben viele kleidung und Souvinieren gekauft. Darauf haben wir in einen gute Restaurant gegessen. Es war sehr gut essen. Darauf haben wir ein Tourist tour mitgenehmen. Wir haben viele gesehen. Wir haben Molly Malone statue, St. Patrick kirche und der posthause gesehen. wir haben auch einen Boot entlang der Flut Liffey genehmen. Es war echt cool! Darauf sind wir nach den Hotel zuruck gegangen. Meine Schwester und ich haben in der pool gebadet. Das wasser war warm und schön. Am Abend sind wir ins Kino gegangen. Wir haben Tarzan mit Alexander Skarsgård gesehen. Er ist ein Swedische Schauspieler. Der Film war sehr gut!. Nach der Film sind meine Schwester und ich nachtclub gegangen. wir haben viel stundenlang getanzt. Wir war totmude wenn wir ins Bett gegangen. Meine Reise nach Dublin war wunderbar und ich will bald zuruck fahren. I really hope i havent butchered your language :-)
  14. Hey! I'm a native English speaker who's very new to German and Mandarin, and would like to find someone I can skype with regularly to practice.

  15. I have created this app called: Beelinguapp, i think it is the most useful tool, with it you can hear and read texts in 2 languages side by side, using your native language as a reference. This has helped me with my german quite a lot to achieve a great level. It has some short children stories and also some interesting books and new articles. Please give me feedback about it and I will add it to the app to improve it! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.david.android.languageswitch
  16. My app Beelinguapp shows texts in two different languages side by side, and it is an audiobook at the same. It shows a karaoke animation to follow the audio. It has been getting some track lately and I would love to get some feedback! You can download it here (Android only for now): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.david.android.languageswitch
  17. Hi there!

    Hi there everyone, Although language has always interested me, I found this website in search of a place that might help me find resources to learn Marathi. My partner's parents are from India, despite them speaking English I thought it would be a good gesture if I tried my best to learn some Marathi before I go to visit them in August. As well as it just being a caring thing to do, the festival Ganesh Chaturthi/Vinayaka Chaturthi is happening whilst I am visiting - I thought it only right to try to learn some of the language they speak when they have kindly invited me into their home at this time. If anyone has any suggestions, or could point me to the right sub-forum to ask for help in that would be greatly appreciated. I have already been to my local library trying to find books, but they only had Hindi learning books. I also have an app on my phone, but it is very basic and my partner has confirmed that it isn't using the right grammar. Any help would be awesome For anyone interested; I speak a very small amount of German on account of the fact my grandmother lives there and my mother grew up there. I am nowhere near fluent, but I thought that might interest all the language buffs Thank you for reading, thebritishgirlfriend x (realising now 'thegbgf' may have been a more catchy username haha)

You can choose tutors there. My tutor was ma'am Nada. She was really friendly and patient. We practiced vocabulary. I really like the session. The website is not very expensive. The first lesson is free which is great. I will definitely keep going to classes and I recommend Verbalplanet for people who want to learn language from their homes.
