  1. Hello Everyone! I am working on making a mobile phone application that helps people learn a new language through conversations. The application will connect students with nearby native speakers so they can meetup, chat and help people pick up the language in a more authentic environment. You can search people based on the languages you speak or are learning, and can plan your meetups through creating invitations. My team is trying to change the traditional way of how people practice a newly learnt language. A comprehensive command of language requires more than a disparate list of words in your vocabulary bank. It requires that you have the skill to discern the nuances, and the ability to use words in their right context and setting and even knowing the history and roots behind those words. We believe that only a native speaker can help someone understand these intricacies. Therefore, we aim to help learners by pairing them up with native speakers so that they are able to practice their spoken skills and become confident speakers. So I am looking for some insights as to how generally people would like to learn in this kind of scenario, and gather some feedback. Please leave a comment below if you'd like to volunteer to contribute and share your thoughts and I'll reach out to you with some follow up questions. If you have ever traveled to a different country and tried to learn their language, I'd love to talk to you! Hit me up below

  4. Hello everyone! This is a post to share some experiences. I am a masters student in Sweden, currently on my second year. I had studied Swedish for merely 3 months before my arrival here in my home country, where I covered the absolute basics. Then I had a university course for a semester, mostly revisiting what I already knew and of course learning new things also. After that, I haven't had any tutoring on the language, although I kept practicing reading, listening and writing in Swedish on a daily basis. I would say I have reached an intermediate level by now, Meaning, I understand (simple to normal) texts, simple conversations (not just the really typical small-talk lines, but a simple everyday conversation in general) and since I text some friends in Swedish sometimes, I rarely have to switch to English to express myself. If you are familiar with the european framework, I'd say I'm B1+ or something, just to give you a little understanding of my level (that is also based on several assessment tests). I almost always understand what people are saying to me but (here it comes) I just don't seem to be able to talk. It's very frustrating and it gets me down. I feel I sound like a retarded. I have Swedish friends who are happy to help, talk to me in Swedish (slowly and clearly also) but I just turn mute on or reply in English. I was wondering if you had similar experiences that you could share in this thread. I would be more than glad to read through them. Thank you very much for your time

  6. First of all, I want to thank God for allowing me up to make this video, so that I can show you all. Since this was a dream I have had for almost 4 years, to make a video where I am speaking a lot of languages, and well, here it is my dream. (I AM NOT FLUENT IN ALL THOSE LANGUAGES)- I would like to warn you guys, I don't consider myself as a Polyglot, and any other fuckery related to it. I just do something I like, and I really like this stuff. (I really enjoy learning languages, and practicing them with people.)This is not everything guys. Stay tuned for more videos. I am preparing for you guys, such as Level up videos.Any critical commentary, negative ones as well as positive ones are warmly welcome, in addition I am not perfect or that good in most of those languages, so any advice outragiously will be taken and accepted by me.My best regards, and hope you enjoyed this video.Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/setuarpFacebook Fan Page: https://www.facebook.com/setuarp/Twitter: https://twitter.com/setuarpFacebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/765125346839301/
  7. Ciao! Propongo di praticare italiano qui, in questa traccia. Possiamo discutere sulle nostre lingue straniere. Spero che alcuni madrelingue vorrano corrigerci Io ho ricominciato' di studiare l'italiano quest'anno. Sto studiando col libro di testo che si chiama "Pronti, via". Provo di parlare un po' con la mia compagna dello scambio linguistico ogni settimana. Mi piace molto studiare l'italiano ma e' abbastanza difficile, particolarmente quando uno apprende lo spagnolo. E voi, che fate per imparare l'italiano? Scrivete qui!
  8. Have you ever been in this situation... You are abroad, in that nice country whose language you've been learning, so excited to finally test your newly acquired skills. You go inside the shop and proudly say "Good morning, I'd like a bottle of mineral water, please" - in a foreign language of the country in question, of course. Maybe your accent is not that great. Or maybe you are still struggling with words and mix them up a bit. Either way, the shop assistant smiles and says in perfect English: "It's all right, I speak English! Sparking or still?" And your good mood goes like "pffff" I've had many situations like that in Berlin this year, when I was desperately trying to practise a bit of my beginner's German and friendly people were invariably replying in English, even if they were happily chatting to each other in German just a second ago. What do you do in such situations? Do you give up or just go on trying?
  9. I've seen a thread about meetup in the Spanish subforum but it relates to any language really. Have you ever used meetup as a way to meet native speakers in your city and practise your languages? I've only tried it recently, and it seems to be a good starting place for meeting people that speak a particular language. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find groups for all the languages I am interested in, and I'm not brave enough to start my own. What are your experiences? Have you ever used meetup or another similar site to practise your speaking skills?
