  4. Hi guys! My name is Nada and I'm a native speaker of Serbian language. If anyone is interested in learning it, I would be more than glad to help him or her to acquire it as quicky as possible. Serbian is spoken by a minority of world's population and the grammar and pronunciation might be difficult to master but alongside the proper guidance and practice it can be fun and easy. Whoever is willing to learn it through the guidance of a native tutor, go to the following link http://www.verbalplanet.com/publicviewprofile.asp?tr_id=10033862908&lang=SER . I also teach English language since I obtain BA and MA in English language and literature. Hope to see some of you soon, have a nice day
  5. Hey there guys lately I've come across some very insightful language lifehack tips and I wanna share them with you. Here you can find them http://hackit4me.com/2017/04/05/language-lifehacks-to-improve-your-language-learning/
  6. Hi everyone! My name is Nada, I'm a teacher of English language, currently working in one school in Serbia. Recently, I have started giving online lessons via Verbalplanet.com. I'm a tutor of both English and Serbian. If anyone is willing to try it out, I would like to help people to learn new language as much as possible The Verbalplanet.com offers free trial lessons and loyalty discounts as well. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Have a nice day!
  7. Hi everyone! I am new member here. I would like to say a little about my learning experience online. I registered at the Verbalplanet website. I want to improve my English. 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.
  8. 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

  23. Hi, I am 15 years old and live in Belgium. I've made my own language based on Dutch, since that is my native language, so I wanted to ask you what you think about it. It has grammar and spelling rules. Exemple: Minyèr é Mifrå Düllin, få Privet Drive Fire, šin ghát trót på så det šé pèrfèk normol šin ghát, tak jã yèl fèl. Šé šin ghát mèst låt mènzh jã fèvak bã ýits rår šin bãtrèk-bin, utát šé ýivün ní myètun på det usin. Minyèr Düllin šin ghát direktör på è firma nåm-bin Grüniñs, vi bórzh mákh ghát. Hã šin ghát è gru, flèši mann mit binå ní nek, mó hã yèb ghát è yèl gru snòr. Mifrå Düllin šin ghát tünn é blãt é yèb ghát binå Tvó mall normol iufèlet nek, vá nüsik šin ghát utát sã só fèl tit turbrèñ ghát á še kik uur tûnièkzh, á še spiòner på bürzh. Düllinzh yèb ghát è klėn són nåm-bin Dudli é i hün mènin r šin ghát ní bèr yuñ tó hün. Transaltion: Mr and Ms Dursley, from Privet Drive four, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you expect to be involved by something weird, because they don't participate to that nonsense. Mr Dursley was the director of a firma called Grunnings, who/that made drills. He was a big, meaty man with almost no neck, but he had a very large moustache. Mrs Dursley was skinny and blonde and had almost two times the normal amount of neck, which was useful because she spent so much time watching over gardenfences, spying the neighbours. The Dursleys had one small son called Dudley and in their opinion there was no better boy than him. (From Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. Rowling) GRAMMAR So for past tense (e.g. he was) I used the verb 'šin' (to be) and I add 'ghát', from the Dutch word 'gehad' (had), so you say 'Hã šin ghát direktör', which litterally translates to 'He is had director'. You also don't inflect verbs, so you say 'ö šin, jã šin, hã/sã šin, vi šin, yul šin, šé šin' (I be, you be, he/she be, we be, you be, they be). If you have a past participle you have the verb and you just add '-bin' (e.g. nåm-bin (called)). The bin is from the Dutch word 'ben' wich means 'to be', so you litterally say 'to name-to be). You don't use articles, so instead of 'the cow is eating' you say 'cow is eating' (ku èt). For the plural form of a word you add '-zh' so 'ku' (cow) in plural will be 'kuzh' PRONOUNCIATION: å ~ far ã ~ where š ~ shoot é ~ may è ~ where zh ~ like š, but softer ò ~ pork ó ~ boat ö ~ further ü ~ Für Elise u ~ you ñ ~ long The 'r' is rolled like in Spanish (or Dutch, or any other language with a rolling r) So thank you for reading the full article, and I'd love to know your opinion, thank you very much.
