  2. 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
  3. Hey, I'm Kuro. I'm learning Greek and Japanese and I've studied French in the past (kinda gave it up). I'm here because I love learning languages but I'm set back in school because my French teacher (only language offered) is kinda useless... Anyways, I'll cya around. さようなら, αντιο, au revoir!
  4. 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. Current Languages: Arabic Spanish French Italian Portuguese English Swedish Russian Serbian Japanese Modern Greek Polish Hungarian Ukrainian Norwegian Korean Chinese German

  7. 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
  8. Hi everyone, I just finished another Hiragana/Katakana study app for Android. I hope that people of all skill levels can find this app useful. Instead of going into detail about the features, I will let the following screenshots do the talking: You can download Kana Dojo for free on Google Play or, to show your support for the developer, you can purchase the app for $0.99 on the Amazon App Store. Google Play (Free) Kana Dojo: Hiragana & Katakana - Android Apps on Google Play Amazon App Store ($0.99) Kana Dojo: Hiragana & Katakana - Amazon Appstore for Android Thanks for checking out the app. I hope you find it useful, and please feel free to post your suggestions and feedback. Depending on how well the app is received, I may add additional features like stroke order, voice recordings of pronunciations, and more games!
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Greetings, I'm determined to discover the language (and lyrics) of a specific fragment in a song, "filament" by Yousei Teikoku. I've created an acapella version of the fragment to understand it easier. Here's the link to the audio clip: The song is in Japanese, but this segment is pretty strange as it doesn't sound very Japanese to me. Here's the full song (the fragment is between 0:17 - 0:28): Any help would be appreciated! Patrick

  13. A few months ago, I gave WaniKani, a Japanese Kanji learning tool, a try - and progressed through the first few levels of study. It's similar to Heisig's "Remembering the Kanji" in the way it uses mnemonics to aid with kanji recognition and recall. Each day, you get lessons and reviews to complete, and the reviews change depending on your performance. I liked it quite a bit myself, though I had to stop when my trial ran out; I wasn't ready to put money into an online learning tool just yet. I'm curious, though: have any of you given WaniKani a try? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Is it viable for learning the core kanji effectively?
  14. Here's a list of 2016 Best Apps for Learning Japanese. Anything missing?
  15. Hello, If you are struggling with grammar, memorizing new words or other boring stuff while learning a language, I have found a great language learning platform to study 100+languages for free. It's called Bliu Bliu (https://bliubliu.com/) Basically you read random content from the internet which was selected according to your level of competence. You press words that you already know and that’s how you "level up". No memorizing, no translations, you just figure out meanings like a baby from context. Also no grammar learning you just figure out it from context too. You can add your own books there as well. Another thing they are offering is 30days challenges where you talk with a native and get all info you need to improve. They have about 10ish different language challenges and they actually work! I was surprised to see my Japanese improve so fast and I could actually speak by the end of the month. this one: https://bliubliu.com/en/learning/challenge/learn-japanese-in-30-days-1/#video-102 I highly recommend it to busy people and for those who hate memorizing boring stuff, it's a lot of fun and not at all pricey.
  16. 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.
  17. Can anyone recommend some online sources for Japanese learning? I'm planning to self-learn Japanese but dunno what to begin

  23. As a long-term language learner I've always been interested in ways to practice and learn. There are quite a few good learning apps available these days, but there aren't many good ones when it comes to actually using the language. I wanted something more like real dialogue with natives, so I've built (my day job is in web development) a web app that focuses on ability to express oneself naturally. Summary of features: Collaborate with a native-speaker (or work on your own) to describe a picture Get feedback from native-speakers Statistics + experience points to keep track of progress Languages: Chinese, English, Finnish, Japanese, Swedish The app is free to use (it's a side project of mine), but you need an invite code to register. Ask me and I'll send you one! This is a work in progress, and if you try this out and find you want some other features I'll happily consider adding them. Any feedback deeply appreciated!

  24. Hello, I currently work in the customer service industry in the UK and come across people from all over the world speaking many different languages. My goal is to learn as many useful sentences in a few of these languages as I can to improve the level of service I give. I feel it is much more personal to be able to make the effort to communicate in their language if they aren't confident with English. That being said, any help, advice, or sentences in your language you feel would be useful in this situation you could give me, I would be most grateful for. Kind Regards.
  25. Hello all! I'm Aze, nice to meet you. I'm currently studying Japanese. I've only memorized a few kanji, and haven't fully grasped the grammar yet. I wanted to join a class when I was in college, but the only class that didn't clash with my schedule was full. So I've only been self-studying so far. Also, I'm not a native English speaker so I'm still learning to brush up my English language skills. I hope to meet lots of fellow learners here, and find helpful tips along the way. よろしくおねがいします!
