  2. Do you struggle with a lack of self-confidence when it comes to speaking a foreign language? When I first started learning French I had a lot of insecurities and feelings of self-consciousness that made it very difficult to speak. When I wanted to speak I would feel very uncomfortable and often I would stay silent. Gradually I started to become more comfortable with feeling uncomfortable which allowed me to grow as a person and in the language itself. I since went on to learn Spanish and Italian in a couple of months as I became more aware of my psychology and the language hacks I could start using from this new found freedom of mind. I am currently offering a 4 Week Course where I will help you to get out of your own way and begin to make progress in your foreign language from Week 1. I will also help you develop into the language learner you wish to be. Using my own experience, I will help you to ask better quality questions and to bring a sense of joy to your learning journey once again. Looking forward to hearing from you! Denis
  3. Hi, I´m looking for a Russian buddy to start a exchange for Spanish. I´m from Colombia, South America, and I want to learn Russian with no real centric purpose, and just because I like it. Just to read/write Russian it´s ok for me. I´m Male, 56, System Engineer, Working with software Development, and currently Studying Biology. I self-study some other science stuff, but learning another language requieres a native person. I´m preferring a female buddy because her sense of persistence and empathy, but a male buddy it´s ok. We can use english as a tool for communication. thank you,
  4. Hello! I'm Deniz, 17 years old with a not-so great memory. I do have the motivation for learning another language, but not really the time as I am taking college and high school classes. I was thinking thirty minutes a day for seven days a week sounds like a plan. That's 168 hours per year; 3 hours 30 minutes / per week. If I were diligent, the numbers would be higher. Do you think 30 minutes is impractical? I don't have to be fluent in the third language, but I would like to be proficient. I speak fluent English as it is my native tongue and I know a good chunk of Turkish, though I should seek improvement. It is my second language; my parents speak fluent Turkish. I live in USA, Texas. Majority of the people in my school are Spanish-speaking. If I were to learn Mexican-Spanish, it would benefit me as most hiring jobs pick the person that knows both Spanish and English over the person that knows only English. It is also the 2nd most spoken language. I will be taking college Spanish 1 and 2 during the summer as it is a requirement for my Associate's degree. I'm not at all interested in the language itself, even though I have many close friends who speak Spanish. I rather learn any other language, but I do realize the benefits of Spanish. However, I'm a sucker for Korean dramas as I have watched at least 220+ Korean dramas (consisting of 16-120 episodes that are an hour each). I have picked up a few Korean phrases, but I'm no where near a beginner level of the Korean language. I adore the language and I would love to learn Korean, especially since I plan to visit Seoul once I am in my 20's. Another thing is that my father speaks Persian (Farsi). It is his native tongue, however he only speaks English and Turkish around the house. If I were to ask him to practice Persian with me, I know he would be willing to. Though, he does not know how to read or write the language because he forgot over time. All of my dad's side speaks Persian, so I would be able to get closer to them. I am interested in learning either Korean, Persian (Farsi) or Mexican-Spanish. Based off the languages I already know and the background knowledge you know of me, which language do you think would be easier for me to learn? Or the best, in your opinion and why.
  5. "En medio de su caos vehicular en horas pico, su maraña de cables, rebrotan de día sus construcciones patrimoniales, su gente, sus secretos y recovecos; y a la noche, esas mismas edificaciones cobran vida con el color de sus juegos de luces." I'm struggling to understand 'rebrotar' in this context. It is a tourism article about a city in Paraguay. Any suggestions? thank you
  6. Learning Spanish - very slowly

    Hi, everyone. I have attempted to learn Spanish a few years ago, but didn't take it seriously and, therefore, didn't get anywhere. Now we are looking for a property to buy in Northern Costa Blanca - the Jalon Valley to be precise - and I started an evening class back in September, plus I am using Duolingo and other online resources.
  7. Hey~ I'm vrysius and I'm the American child of an Argentine, born and raised around Washington D.C. in the United States. My pronouns are He/They. I lived for a few years in NL and picked up a fair amount of fluency in Dutch from there, although I am out of practice and my grammar is probably terrible again. When I was a child, I wanted to learn every spoken language in the world, haha. Now I just want to be fairly familiar with at least one or two languages per continent. Unfortunately, with everything else I have to put energy into in my life, this might be kind of an unobtainable goal. I work by day in Networking and Systems Support, and have a strong desire to write and publish fiction. I am technically working on a novel and a video game script (in English). I am also becoming very people-oriented and invest a lot of time supporting my friends and family. Anyway...! I am currently primarily focused on increasing my fluency in Spanish. My mother was very invested in my English literacy to the point where she never spoke to me in Castellano and only taught me rudimentary basics when I got older. Some of it I actually rejected for a time and I am really hoping to be able to reclaim an important part of my background. Also, Spanish fluency is just a really good life and social community skill to have in my area. Outside of that, I have been wanting to increase German fluency out of fancy, and I want to learn ASL because I find it important for every hearing person to be able to assist the Deaf/HOH by learning ASL. Distant linguistic goals also include familiarity with Arabic and at least one major language from the African continent, but I have not chosen which would be meaningful or pragmatic enough to me to justify learning it without coming off like a language imperialist. Sorry I am verbose! I hope to gain a lot from this forum!

  20. Hello all, I am working on a project that requires a request to be translated in French, German, Italian and Spanish. I've used a translation app but don't trust it completely. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's the situation: a group of study abroad students will be going overseas to work on conversational skills (France, Germany, Italy, Mexico). What would be a nice written way to ask people, politely, to engage in conversation with these students for the purpose of practice? Perhaps a translation of "I would appreciate practice speaking (French, German, Italian, Spanish)". The fewer words the better. Thanks so much everyone!
