  1. Are there books that you wish were translated into your native language? I have a lot of those. There are some excellent fiction and nonfiction books that I've read in English that I really enjoyed and I'm pretty sure my Polish and Russian friend would love too. Unfortunately, not all of them speak English, and the books have never been (and probably will never be) translated into Russian/Polish. Each time I keep thinking - why does it happen? Why so many really rubbish stuff gets to have a professional translation, but so many wonderful books never get the chance? Do you also have the same problem or is it easy to find the books you read in your native language's version?
  2. One of the ways that I learned vocabulary in English was watching movies in English and reading the translation in the subtitles, I always thought that it helped me and my teacher always encouraged us to do so. After some time and practice I stopped using the translations as subtitles and started watching the movies with English subtitles so I could learn a little bit of orthography too. I think that is a fun way to learn a little bit more a language and to practice without knowing. I don't have English classes any more and I think that this has helped me to still have contact with English, what do you think?
  3. Yeah, this is our own app. It is new and we are studying on it. I am believing this app can easy people's reading on a foreign language. Reading Browser is showing you translations by Google Translate. Check it out.. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tr.com.blogspot.androidlister.readingbrowser02
  4. I love reading books in English, especially the classics. One of my favorite authors, I have to say, is Jane Austen, and Vladimir Nabokov (though he is Russian). I was wondering what yours were
  5. I know that sometimes the books we get assigned to read in school can be boring. However, I've found some interesting reads, and I'm interested in knowing what everyone's favorite (or least hated) book from school is. Mine was "The Outsiders".
  6. I was thinking about this not such a long time ago. I remember that several times, both in real life and on the Internet, I heard people say something like "I used to really like the books of X, but now that I've read his biography I no longer like that author". I've had the same happen to me a couple of times: really enjoyed the book but when I discovered some ugly facts about the author, I just couldn't look at the book with the same eyes. Is it important for you? Do you care what kind of person wrote the book you were reading, in any language? Have you ever felt disappointed when you learnt unsavoury details about the author's life or his/her views?
  7. Sharing some techniques on how to learn German or say any other language (vocabulary, accent etc.) fast. 1. Read books – this is my favorite – good for those who love reading and at the same time wanting the benefit of learning the language on the side. You may be slow at first but that is normal because you are reading in different language and not in your mother tongue. My advice, try not to look to every word in the dictionary during your reading, just keep on reading, it would avoid you to get bored. I know it may sound not right but believe me, it works. 2. Listen when the native are talking and then take note – Once in a while, I just keep my mouth shut, not asking question and just let myself listen when people talk around me, and then I take note some words that are new to me and if there is a chance ask some of them to tell me what those words mean or I look it up myself and then use it the next time I have the opportunity to do so 3. Watch film or TV – I think everybody is familiar with this one. I do not have to go further, let us save time J 4. Read simple signs – When I was driving places, I give notice to those signs on the way or around. This is great especially if you are driving in the same direction everyday. Eventually you will memorize these words since you are encountering them often. 5. Play scrabble – Sounds old but this will help. Just play the game and do not be furious of losing it, just think of the advantage side of it. Let them win in a while and learn vocabularies, that way you can win big too and then next time, win both sidesJ 6. Think like a child then converse, converse and converse – I know, there are a lot of factors that are holding us back (esp. new language learners) to talk to people, especially to the native speakers. I know them, because I had that stage in my life. When I was in school, there are a lot of time I wished I would not be on the spot where I have to talk or explain something, I was scared to mess myself, I was shy that I would not say it right. But this is not the right way to learn the language faster. In a study, kids are faster language learner than adults. Factors why is that so are, children do not have any hesitant to converse, they do not hold themselves, they are open, they are not shy and most of all, they are not scared not to speak perfectly. Adults should do the same. Just talk and do not be furious to be imperfect when it comes to language. That way you will practice and get better everyday and learn a lot. I know there are still a lot to mention, feel free to share yours
  8. Have you heard of this method to learn a language? What do you think of it? For those who haven't heard about it, the method is all about reading books adapted in the following way: the original text has certain or all words translated to your native language, sometimes with additional explanations. So you get something like this: Le mariage (marriage) doit (must) incessamment (constantly) combattre un monstre (fight a monster) qui dévore (devours) tout (everything, all) : l'habitude (habit). (Balzac) The amount of words that are translated depends on your level. I've seen some books where you get every word translated and those where you have only some of them explained. It didn't work for me - I get too distracted with translations to really concentrate on reading. But I know some people swear by it. What about you?
