  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

  4. I’m going to learn Spanish. I didn't find tutors of Spanish in my region. Maybe it’s possible to find them online. If yes, Can you help me with searching them?
  5. 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

  12. A little while back, I made my on-line “Spanish Pronunciation Workshop” available for free to all members of this forum. I decided to do it again. So, here it is...! I have also developed a “SER & ESTAR Workshop” but I would REALLY like some feedback on the Pronunciation Workshop. The "SER and ESTAR" workshop is fully developed but is not free. Check it out, if you wish. So, por favor, if you have a little free time, click on the link below, complete the course, leave your comments (for other participants to see) OR send me your feedback (bueno o malo) to: cesar@torreblanca.ca Muchas gracias...!
  13. 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
  14. Sometimes I wonder about how poetic and beautiful a language can be. What I've known though is that romance languages usually take the first place because of their poetically meaningful and nice sounding words. My favorite words in spanish would be these: 1) Gallardía - gallantry - When someone is courteous and his/her acts show courage and in general, an elegant way of acting. No wonder why there is a luxury Italian car referenced as "Gallardo". 2) Efímero - ephemeral. This word does have an english equivalent, however, it seems to be even more poetic in Spanish because it's mostly used in literary works. 3) Ensueño - dream-like. It's used mainly as a very positive expression where you talk about something you dream of but is quite difficult to achieve. Nonetheless every time you dream about it, that thing is pleasurable an "ensueño". It's also used to describe something that is beautiful and is found in Spanish expressions such as "fiesta de ensueño, boda de ensueño, casa de ensueño" etc... 4) Fantasmagoria - phantasmagoria. This word does have a similar equivalent in English both in meaning and sound. In Spanish though the "F" and "go" sound much stronger and adds even more personality to it. 5) Algarroba - Carob - while the real thing looks and smells quite funny its sound makes this a unique word. It has this characteristic double "rr" sound that is so difficult for us english speakers to pronounce and adds up a little flair to it. If you happen to have more beautiful meaning or sounding Spanish words please add them! I guess any romance language word would be ok as well.
  15. How would I say in spanish: "it was possible that we could have put more than one answer" I think that it should be subjunctive since es posible que triggers the subjunctive, but it is also conditional. This is what I thought it would be: "Fue posible que nos hubieramos puesto mas que una repuesta"

  20. Hi, I am from Germany and speak German and in addition I am fluent in English. I would like to learn French, Italian and Spanish and would like to exchange skills mainly by writing and proof-reading. I am only interested in NATIVE speakers. French from France please, and Spanish from Spain. Hallo, ich bin Deutsche und spreche außerdem fließend Englisch. Ich würde gerne Französisch, Italienisch und Spanisch lernen und bräuchte jemandem zum Austausch hauptsächlich schriftlich und zum gegenlesen. Ich bin ausschließlich an Muttersprachlern interessiert. Französisch gerne aus Frankreich (also nicht Canada) und Spanisch bitte aus Spanien (keine südamerikanischen Länder).
  21. I've recently signed up for the free trial of Rocket Spanish, which includes free access to the full course for six days. This is my review of using and testing it for that limited period of six days. After the trial period you can decide whether you want to cancel your account or keep it. I did the latter because I fell in love with it (more about this later). While the majority of Spanish learning programs continue to use traditional methods such as word repetition and picture matching exercises, Rocket Languages claims to "have tipped conventional language learning on its head" and formulated what I personally found to be a very engaging and interactive program to learn Spanish on your computer, tablet, or phone. Studies have shown that the problem with the dated "image-recall" method of learning is that it suits children, but does not suit teenagers and young adults. This is because the brain evolves from being like a sponge in childhood to being less porous in adulthood. The best way for an adult to learn a language is to use his/her native language as the main learning assistant and a multi faceted learning approach using a variety of educational materials. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE COURSE How it works Rocket Spanish has adopted this modern approach to language learning. Each lesson is different, using quizzes, games, evaluation tests, and cultural language lessons to engage the learner on multiple levels. The wide variety of lessons is an entertaining aspect and allows the learner to immerse him/herself in the flow of the program in a fun and exciting way. There are fewer word repetition exercises and redundant matching games to be found than in more traditional language learning software, which, frankly, also makes it a lot less boring. Another aspect of this course is the focus on colloquial language. The program teaches the learner to speak as everyday locals speak, which means that when you visit a Spanish speaking country you will possess vocabulary commonly used among local people in the streets, which is, in my opinion, the only true angle to tackle it from. This program can quite quickly take you from basic to fluent speaking if you put the time into it. The sheer volume of user interaction makes the program exciting and engaging. The program is multi platform compatible, which means that you can use it on a range of portable devices such as tablets and smartphones, particularly useful for people with busy schedules who want to learn on the go. The bonus Survival Kit and cultural lessons provide another key learning platform that other programs tend to neglect. You will learn cultural sensitivity and gain a proficient understanding of the country's people and customs. This is extremely beneficial for expats or business people abroad in a Spanish speaking country. Summary Fun, interactive, engaging, and easy to use. Provides a comprehensive language and cultural learning experience. Lessons can be transferred to portable devices for learning on the go. Highly affordable, offering far more value than direct competitors. You may try the full course for 6 days with no purchasing obligation. No skills assessment at the beginning. Lacks advanced writing exercises. Conclusion I found Rocket Spanish being the most engaging and convenient to use compared to the others. The program is highly effective in teaching a coherent combination of vocabulary and conversational skills. It eliminates the cultural and colloquial barriers previously faced by Spanish language learners and provides a comprehensive learning experience that can be taken abroad. The forums allow students to ask questions and interact with tutors and other students. The community is an essential motivating factor for success.
  22. Rocket Spanish is an online Spanish course by Rocket Languages. It's the biggest selling course in the Rocket Languages lineup — particularly popular for folks wanting casual, conversational Latin American Spanish. The idea behind Rocket Spanish is that there is a certain amount of "essential" language you need, and a whole lot of stuff that can wait until later. For instance, they say that if you don't know the word for "pencil" you can point to a pencil and ask a Spanish speaker, "how do you say this?" But if you don't know how to say "how do you say this?" then you're pretty screwed. So Rocket Spanish supposedly focuses on the most useful grammar and vocabulary first. Rocket Spanish doesn't quite have the profile of big players like Rosetta Stone or Pimsleur, and it isn't quite as flashy as Fluenz or Duolingo. So how does it stack up? Let's take a look...http://bit.do/cRZ3u
  23. Im learning french so I need someone to practice with. I could help you with spanish
  24. 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
  25. I have read that Spanish incorporates some Arabic words or phrases into the language. Does anyone know what these Arabic words are and how are they used for modern Spanish?
