  2. Hi, I really want to learn Punjabi/Panjabi but I can't find many good resources for it. Ideally, I'd like an interactive course (such as duolingo), a textbook and maybe a source of interesting podcasts/audio in the language, but I'm really not sure. I'd appreciate any help you people here can give! Thank you
  3. Yesterday
  4. Good afternoon, I was hoping someone could help me with a bit of explanation. I am sorry for writing in Romaji. I don't like using it but my computer does not seem to be able to type Japanese characters. In a video by Yuko Sensei on Youtube she explained how to describe someone. What you have to say is Tanaka San wa me ga chiisai desu. Can you also say Tanaka San no me wa chiisai desu? If not, can someone explain why? Thank you in advance for all your help.
  5. 1) review the lexicon of my language learning method 2) use a flashcard "learn with Oliver" (an effective not a glamour one) or Riji 3) read audio book made for it at the right level or Lingq, a great tool made for vocabulary 4) use websites with word features like Viki (film), "Vocabulary.com" or "readlang" 5) study Songs with Lyricstranslate or websites like https://labdeslangues.blog/2019/01/29/lyricstraining/ 6) subscribe to an app with "words of the day" 6) thematic book (advanced level)

  7. Only God judges our hearts. It is not our job to judge others. I personally don't swear and didn't know and never meant gees as a swear word replacement. That's why I spell it with a g. I know God knows this and understands and that's all I need to know. If I ever had children though I probably would break the habit of using the word for their sake. I'm a Christian but honestly if some Christians would worry a little less about what others say and do wrong and more about loving and and helping others, I think it would be alot more productive. Scripture does say, (judge not lest you be judged.) Also says, God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17
  8. Like every language with gender it's better to learn it with the word than looking for rules with so many exceptions (it could be easier for some languages like Russian). The story of gender in French, who lost the neutral one of Latin origin, is a little bit complicated... les origines du genre Exercices and tips
  9. The need of a "lingua franca" will shrink as in many cases automatic translation can replace "live" languages. Travel, business, websites... Language learning will be of course always there but people will be free from learning languages because of wrong motivations. You will be free to choose any language according to your inner wishes.
  10. Yes, I do. It's a great tool to improve your vocabulary and a good way to "feel" the spirit of a language by comparing forms of expression. But you have to read books at your present level! This app could be useful.

  14. Learn English! There so many languages nowadays, but don't forget that English is the international one. By the way there so many good schools, teaching Englis. Now there so many sources to learn English but be careful when you choose because I have a lot of negative experience. At the end I chose Genius English, and that was my best choice. I really recommend this school.
  15. Yes, I agree that language schools help, cause I know that they have special techniques to teach people. Genius English helped me to learn English. They have the options of learning for everyone. Do you know something about this school?
  16. Indeed! The favorite idiom of my daughter when she was 15 years old. " Papa, tu me saoules" when asked if she has done her homework or where she is going out (and with who). Could be used in order to not give an answer... Grandfather is nowadays teaching her granddaughter "tu me saoules" in order to answer mum :-) Aussi "tu m'emmerdes" ou "tu me casses les pieds".
  17. There is no "easy" Way... If you start with such an idea you will be disappointed at some point and you could be tempted to quit your study. The language learning marketing started with "fluent in three months" and you find now on internet "French in one day" or even "a foreign language in two hours"... Forget! The trick is most of the apps (I have tried hundreds of them) are for beginner level with few or no grammar to be more glamourous and please the credit card holder. Later on, the cliff will be huge for "easy" app users... The truth is this is a winding road with hopes and despairs and you should mentally accept it in order to keep a strong spirit. Each language has difficult and easy aspects. Just keep rolling on! Itchy feet comics has a great one that sums it well: You have got on the market tools working well for different aspects of a language (writing, grammar, conversation...) that help you to better learn.
  18. In fact they are the factors that made me study those languages... :-) The ever strongest factor has been the "girlfriend" one. Fan of boardgames too made me spend nights and days on rules translations starting at 10 years old! Nowdays I prefer to focus on known languages in order to improve or "refresh" those linked to a travel but an opportunity (I have two new Japenese friends in my course of Tai-Chi) could trigger for example a learning session of Japanese. Aging, business languages needs are less important... If you have a good and strong motivation (not only a "need"), it is much easier to learn any language.
  19. Hello @Stefania77 It surely is effective when it comes to word memorization. In Trancelation, our language-learning game, you can create your own vocabulary lists and word packs based on your current level. You can check more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/716560/Trancelation/
  20. Whether it is easy or difficult to learn a language, depends mostly on your teacher. I feel pity for those foreign language learners who haven’t managed to find the right teacher and thus haven’t mastered the language. Everything is possible! The question is, where to find a good teacher. I can recommend you https://eurekly.com – it’s a diverse tutoring pool you can jump into and find a tutor who will manage to meet your personal needs, win you for the subject and – finally – make the language easy for you to learn. Good luck in your studies!
  21. To learn any new language you need take curses, read many books, listen to music and watch something with subtitles
  22. Wow, that is a very interesting answer Xequeo. So which of these factors is the most important one for you? Which of those languages would you really like to master in the future? I guess to master them all would be a little bit too much to ask for :=) L
