      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  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
  2. Hallo, freunde!

    Hallo, freunde! (Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's 'Hello, friends!' in German, my TL) I'm new here, so I know many may have been aware of this website. I thought I might post a link just in case any other newbie like me is looking for another nice, bilingual place where they can learn a thing or two! http://www.vistawide.com I highly recommend Vistawide. Very helpful! If this post is long overdue or unhelpful, please remove it, admins. And if you are here, hello! Hope I could be of help in our language journeys!
  3. Hi! My name is Fabio, I started study languages by myself 3 years ago. As the most of you (I guess), I want to learn languages by pleasure, so I don't see any reason to pay for that... but this is like a stone inside my shoes (Brazilian proverb), all of the good resources that I have found are paid. Well, I had two options, pay and use it or don't pay but don't use it! I choosed the third one, create my own website with all the resources that I judge important to learn a new language. I call this website LangLovers.com, now it's in a beta stage and I want to invite all of you to try it and help me to improve the quality of this website. The main purpose of LangLovers.com is create a community of language learners, the website will be free of charge (of course!), but I pretend to receive donations or implement some Ads to specific pages, because some money is necessary to keep the website working (host, domain and etc...), I have created it by myself and I don't have much experience with website development... This is also an invitation for website developers that are language learners, if you want, you can help me to make it better sending me usefull code snippets. All the content of the website will be created by the community, and the community will help each other’s to improve your language skills. The “content” means: Texts Audio Corrections Dictionaries Chats Link here: http://www.langlovers.com This is a list of the supported languages available now: English Spanish French Italian Portuguese Romanian German Japanese Chinese But I'm still adding more languages. Hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Fabio
  4. Hey everyone. I've been working on a website for language learners and travelers and would like to share it here. It is called UPhrasebook. The video would explain it better. Why I've decided to make something like this? Many successful language learners say it is better to learn phrases instead of single words. I didn't find anything quite like this online. Forvo is great for checking pronunciation. Although, this is the only thing it is good for. Plus it mostly works with single words. Google Translate and other machine translators often make awful translations and have artificial voices with weird intonations to voice out the words. The phrases you find in printed phrasebooks and online often don't have any explanations and might be weird and unnatural. At the moment there's still a lot of work to be done, but the core functionality is ready. I've already opened the registration for the public and would like to invite everyone to register and make some translations and record pronunciations to share your language knowledge with others. I've already done some translations myself (mostly from Russian, so check it out if you're learning Russian). Would love to get some feedback and suggestions as well.
  5. Hello, guys! This is my first post, but I know a really good place to help with your language learning! It's called Pronunciator; it is a website and an app (I prefer the website more, but I use both). The program features 80 different languages you can learn. It is a completely free site but only if you are a student and your school supports the program (like my school) or you are a member of your local library and they support it, which they most likely do. If you are not a student or do not have a library membership you will have to pay. I am learning Korean through this site, and it is really helpful for learning vocabulary and useful phrases, but the downside is the romanization is TERRIBLE. If you are learning Korean like me, I recommend you use this site only if you already mastered the Korean alphabet and can read it. I was lucky because I could already do this going into the program. I know that German and Chinese is ok with this aspect, but I can't speak for other languages and how well the romanization is for them. Some of the features pronunciator offers are progress tracking, quizzes on different skill sets, ProRadio, ProFlix and flashcards, The progress tracker will show you how far you've gotten in a lesson with an average of the grades you've made on assignments. The quizzes are made to test you on vocabulary, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, spelling, writing, and pronunciation. With the pronunciation quizzes you speak into a speaker (on your phone, tablet, or computer) and it will tell you how well you pronounced it and give you a percentage grade on each set you pronounce. ProRadio is kind of like Pandora but it gives you songs in the language you're learning with the lyrics on the right side of you screen. ProFlix is the same type of deal. It gives you a movie to watch, but it also includes quizzes and drills. The flashcards help you to learn by letting you rate how well you the word or phrase with 4 choices. How you rate yourself lets Pronunciator know how long to bring the vocabulary up again. For tonal languages such as Chinese there is Pitch Perfect which compares the tones to musical notes and then compares your pronunciation to native speakers. I hope this helps! Let me know what you think of the program. To sign up using a school or library account go to their database and search for it and it will let you sign up. If you would like to take a look at it here is the link. http://www.pronunciator.com/
  6. Speak with natives

    Hi, I am trying the lean startup method I am a software developer that likes to create a useful program for learning languages. The idea is that a Native speaker will create a thread on some topic that is interesting for him and write a short story, let's say in English. Other students that are learning English will join the discussion and speak with him on a given topic. Will this kind of learning be interesting? What do you think? Would you give a try to this website/mobile app if it would exist? For native speakers it can be something like freelance, so they will earn some money or get some cookies... Thank you in advance for your opinion! King regards, Anton
