  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. Current Languages: Arabic Spanish French Italian Portuguese English Swedish Russian Serbian Japanese Modern Greek Polish Hungarian Ukrainian Norwegian Korean Chinese German

  3. Всем привет! I'm learning russian and i'm not only interrested in speaking/writing the language, but also into its history, and I found a similarity between two words: черт (devil) and черта (line). Is there a link between these two words which seems to be similar ? Thx in advance.

  6. East Slavic languages = East Germanic languages East Germanic languages have svoystvami- extension is the only subfamily that 1 fully 2 died very little written evidence. Extinction accounts averaged 6 century AD. West German and Scandinavian groups remained, but the eastern died. Slavic languages also have a strange feature. Long time no one of them could not say anything. This is despite the fact that the language about what some Aboriginal Australia like that all at once it became known. Writing the Slavs begins abruptly with the 9th century, with the arrival of a certain Cyril. It is known that the Slavic and Germanic languages in the Indo-European family the next. These two oddities quite allow to come to two conclusions 1 Slavic languages - German 3 Germanic languages - Slavic. If we remove all of the Germanic languages the eastern branch, then in fact the whole structure flies. Nothing can be said about and Slavic languages, as the prior written history is silent. It is logical to take the exit point in the 6th century and the entry point in the 9th century. At the same time, we need to trust one single testimony of contemporaries about the Germans, but do not trust others. We must believe Tacitus that the Vandals, in principle, but does not believe Mauro Orbini, Marshal, Gerbenshteynu, Kranz, Dure, Spencer, and even Tatischev. The identification of the Slavs and the Vandals (ready) continues historians have of the XVIII century, for example, in the popular book by E. Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" (1776-1787). Some interest in this regard are published in 1725 in Amsterdam "History Ruthenians" genealogical survey of German scientists J. Huebner (1725), S. Buchholz (1753) and M. von Baer (1759) Such an amount is not coincidence. We will not result in numerous other evidence, for example, that the Cyrillic alphabet is very similar to gotnitsu, the presence of such a country Gardarika on the territory of today's central Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, which describe the Scandinavians and thus refer to it as his own, that is, can understand people without an interpreter . Consider the well-known facts about the East German languages: We will not give ample evidence of the relationship of the eastern Slavic languages and Gothic language on vocabulary, direct indication of medieval scholars such as Mauro Orbini that the Russian - a Vandals, ie Goths that the Cyrillic alphabet is very similar to gotnitsu and other famous places or the presence of such a country Gardarika on the territory of today's central Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, which describe the Scandinavians and thus refer to it as his own, that is, people can understand without a translator. Add to this a single mythological space, such as Wotan Velez, Tor-Perun. Then it is clear that the "name" Rurik is not a stranger, but as his own in the truest sense. Burgundy language Some of the names are formed by diminutive suffix -ik- (Gibica, Adica, Remico). Likёrchik. Vandalic language It is known saying: "Scapia matzia ia drincan!" Explanation let's eat and drink. According to Russian: Skopje, let mattsat and drinkat ". Words archaic, however, we also recognize, for example, the word Zenk - eyes. Interestingly, both vandal compiled a list of Swadesh, if nothing from him did not survive? Lombardic language Word godahid - godohod? That is a walker from God or one who walks all year round? According to Lombard (dLinoborody) Scandinavia will be like Scadinavia. Bastarnsky language Known expression on it: «nesjataj is, adabo is mris" .What is translated as "save it, more he dies." Other languages yet give nothing, because in a strange way the mention of them there, but they are not examples. It Gerulsky language Gepidsky language Rugiysky language Yutsky language. Thus at a future reconstruction rannevostochnoslavyanogermanskogo language must be understood 1 changes due to the transition from runnitsy on the gothic alphabet, and then another in a number of countries in the Latin 2 historic loss, changes unintentional and intentional 3 errors when copying the written sources of the Middle Ages, etc. 4 Natural processes, such as, reduction of the -r, -h, metathesis. Many Germanic languages were adjusted several times to the standards, including in the form of the influence of the Latin language and -s, -um, and so on. N. With or without reason. For example Lombard word wittimon «wedding», trigildus «triple compensation" actually sound like wittima and trigildar - trigilda (-r reduction both in modern English, a change is not fixed in writing). Wittima. Tim in Old - count. View - as a prefix is, for example, in a Ukrainian - from. That is to count the spouses, rank them one to another. Trigilda. In Russian today is not the glory of guild (money for the West German), but there is a word of the debt, which is in the dictionaries of the Gothic language as daulga. Obviously, in the Gothic and Lombardic language occurred permutation - metathesis of consonants. Then we get trigilda - tridalga - three debt. Wittima. Tim in Old - count. View - as a prefix is, for example, in a Ukrainian - from. That is to count the spouses, rank them one to another. Trigilda. In Russian today is not the glory of guild (money for the West German), but there is a word of the debt, which is in the dictionaries of the Gothic language as daulga. Obviously, in the Gothic and Lombardic language occurred permutation - metathesis of consonants. Then we get trigilda - tridalga - three debt. What could have happened that left such a mess? Take the pan-European sources and Scandinavian sagas. We know that our ancestors were pagan Scandinavians, and the so-called Arians professed Vedic faith (not what it is now for the issue). It was not a pagan, but presupposes a complex picture with some supreme principle (such as Dao) and the local gods. So now it's preserved in India. One of the names is a faith - Arianism. However, Christianity be spread and went forward, and it was still united as split into Catholics and Orthodox took place only in 1054. One of the forms of adaptation of Christianity was taking it to the thesis that Jesus Christ is God's messenger, but not God. And though at first it suited the Church, but a little later, this has led to wars, including the so-called wars of Justinian. So, those who captured those assimilated. But the central Russia is far enough away to arrange her successful campaign: climate, prolixity, the ability to maneuver. And here we are already well worked and the so-called period of Mongol rule, which was not so in the guise of an external threat to erase the memory of the period 6-9 century. Ariane Christian period for the then already Orthodox, but inherited from one church postulate of the inadmissibility of Arianism, were far more dangerous than even the pagans, since 1 Jesus Christ is not the son of God 2 Christianity itself many took their Vedic approach, as Judah was trading point with India . There a lot of things, respectively in India and in terms of the ideas came. Thus, efforts in terms of further research is necessary to concentrate on finding sites vostgermanskih languages bath official conservative philology in their analysis of the relationship with the Sorbian, Polabian, Pomeranian language. It is known that the Polabian and Sorbian languages are formed by repeated relocation of Slavs (!) Of Novgorod and Pskov (as they are referred to the city of the Scandinavians), which confirms that the formation of the Slavic (German) language was largely in Central Russia (Gardariki). Value concepts of Germans and Slavs. The English call themselves anlosaksami, so there is nothing strange here.

  8. Hello everybody! I am completely new here and came for an advice. Lets sum it up briefly: Im 29, native Czech Fluent in English (complete competence, daily usage of spoken/written). No reason to worry about losing it Learning German since 3/2013, four years now, from an absolute zero. I am far away from fluency but basically no more materials can offer anything worth the time spent to me. Therefore I read books as much as I can and am having conversations 3 times a week (2x1 hour one on one, and 1.5 hour in a group of three) in order to bring it to a satisfactory (fluent) lever until the end of the year and then keep fostering it till I die as I am going to need it in 90% of the jobs that I can ever get. My other motivation is just to be able to sing a song along, read a book as it was written, chat with locals without the necessity of using a foreign language (for them). I, believe me or not, consider it being a nice sounding, even a poetic language I intend to start learning Russian, just dont know if it is not too soon. It should actually be easy to me as it is a Slavic language, moreover presumably a simpler one and with lots of same/similar/familiar words. My motivation, besides money it could bring me, is more personal and less professional than in case of German Btw I have come across a tip to use materials made in the second language in order to learn a third one. Aside using English (and Czech) stuff I therefore consider purchasing some Russisch Kurs. Is there anything you could recommend? In order to give you a bit broader picture of what works to me or not, let me briefly recap my German learning experience (hope it is not forbidden to talk about materials): I am an auditive kind of person. I live in a world of sounds, noises, tones, melodies. One of hobbies is recognizing actors by ther voices, I was quite good at recognizing music before Shazam came. Therefore I prefer audiomaterials Started with Michel Thomas. Purely brilliant. Two people who, as well as you, never ever studied the language before, making the same mistakes as you do and Michel, with his wonderful personality, kindly correcting them. Awesomely authentic. Great start. The first material everybody should grab when new to a language Pimsleur was, on the contrary, very cold, too time consuming assuming the little benefit it brings and the translations too vague (Guten Tag translated as Hello etc). Boring, long, made for simple minded crowds, in my point of view Paul Noble is similar to Michel Thomas. Not that profound, not that authentic but still nice Two Czech audioschools follow: 2000 nejpoužívanějších německcých slov - 2k most frequent German words, which I dont understand why is quite overlooked. It contains all these words in complete sentences (thus even a significant portion of the grammar) accompanied with a transcription. The best I came across so far (when used in a CZ>DE order), learned it by heart word by word from my mp3 player, gradually cutting away these that I already knew, going back from time to time to revice Němčina do ucha - German to your ear - similar one, hard drill as well, this time giving phrases sorted by certain grammar phenomenons (and besides that the vocabulary). Learned by heart as well. In some ways these two overlap, off course. Some little selection was necessary I have surprisingly not found anything like these two in English! Glossika - Vague translations, some sentences sound unnatural even to an intermediate student Duolinguo - I was already farther in this point. Finished it just because it is been glorified everywhere. Vague translations, creates an illusion of competence at beginners, quite a silly concept to my taste. I prefer serious and solid learning FSI languages - again, I was already much farther and the time to sort out sentences that I did any mistake in was not worth the questionable benefit. Overall a very nice one DLI languages - the same I did not enjoy Rosetta Stone very much Then I purchased some audiobooks and kept listening to them in 10 minute segments at work without really paying any attention until I was basically able to repeat some of the phrases the same way it works with pop songs I have read some 5 books so far, using this touch-dictionary in my Kindle. Still up to 5 words that I have to look up on every page So for learning this Russian I am considering: Michel Tomas (although not with him himself this time, unfortunately) Pimsleur (bad is still better than nothing, especially when you can borrow it from a library for almost nothing) The two Czech that I have mentioned above FSI/DLI if necessary Any more tips? I am considering ordering these two: http://www.dnf-verlag.de/shop/sprache/russisch/audiotrainer-1000-woerter-russisch-a1/ http://www.dnf-verlag.de/shop/sprache/russisch/audiotrainer-1000-woerter-russisch-a2/ or this one https://www.amazon.de/Audiotrainer-Russisch-Basiswortschatz-2-Audio-CDs/dp/3867152047 So my two questions - for these not having the patience to read it through - when should I pick Russian to German as a native Czech with fluent English and are there any nice audiomaterials (both English and German) that you could recommend based on my preferences? Thanks a lot!

  11. Здравствуйте! I am learning Russian language right now and i am trying to figure out every possible way to quickly learn the language online. It has been really rough. It definitely helps that many free sites are providing basics skills to learn a language but it might not be quite enough to be motivated as we will not be communicating in a most practical way. Well, i actually found this course https://echoee.com/russian-courses/ quite helpful which i have already been enrolled with. They do one-on-one session as well as group session to develop more practical skills. I am quite impressed but still wanna make sure that i am on the right track. Please give me your advice or tips for more effectiveness and any insight about the course. Thanks
  12. 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. 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. Of all the apps I have used I have found Beelinguapp the most useful, 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. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.david.android.languageswitch
  17. I love reading Russian novels (Nabokov, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy), and I always wanted to know if there are some things that just can't be translated into English. I know it's a different alphabet and it's a complicated language, but what I can understand from these novels is that Russian authors have a more dry, sometimes even dark sense of humor; I wonder if some key aspects to it can't be translated into English. I would be really interested in learning Russian at one point in my life just to be able to read these amazing Russian novels in the language they were written in.

  22. 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.
