  1. Hello everyone! I find classroom learning to be effective in helping me learn a language because there is a constructive teaching plan that is formulated by teachers and everything about the language is tackled. Just like in regular schools though, there are also levels that have to be completed in order for me to fully learn the language. I'm happy with the end results though because at the end of each language course, I not only have learned a new language, but I also receive certification as proof of my learning. Aside from the formal classroom learning, I also make it a point tha

    Language Games

    I agree. I found this to be true especially for children. I found that my son was able to easily grasp vocabulary learning when I encouraged him to play language games in English. As what @takibari said, I find language games to be helpful when it comes to improving one's vocabulary, especially for beginners.

    I think it depends on the type of game. If it is an educational game then I think it would go a long way in assisting in language learning but otherwise could be limited.

  4. I have had a similar experience as well. Mine was at Primary school (Grade school) where we were mandated to learn Hausa Language and the teacher would just come in speaking for 20 minutes in Hausa Language. I was always lost and barely scaled through. Not all language teachers are good at their jobs. Others use skillful techniques in helping struggling students learn the language with minimal memory usage.

  5. Well that is certainly an interesting question, and it makes me think that you could really use it as an advantage if you really tried, and maybe use it as quick way to test yourself. That said, though, it would have to mean that the subtitles are pretty accurate, and that has certainly not always been the case in the shows that I have seen. I am not really sure if that is something that is improving though, but I bet that it is. Anyways, it is a good idea to explore, and thanks for sharing.

  6. Well, I do not really like sharing my secrets, but since this is a great community, then I will just go ahead and share some tips. Well, first off, never pay for a course of any kind, courses are like school and I know you do not like going to school so it is going to be the same feeling, you will get bored, annoyed by the teachers, you will get tired and that's not really the way a person can get to learn something properly. For the second tip, we have PRACTICE, yes, practice is what's going to take you to the highest hill, but if you never practice, then you're not evolving and your learning

    Language Games

    Language games help learning only to a certain extent. But this opinion is limited to games I've only used before. Most language games I knew then were most on vocabulary building. In increasing the number of words you know in the new language you're learning, then games help make the learning fun. But if you're talking about being able to help building your writing and speaking skills, I think language games become wanting. That said, language games to me are helpful at the very beginning stage of language learning.

    Language Games

    I have played some language comes some years back and they really do help. The best way to learn a language is if you are having fun and games do this very well. Movies are another good tool but in the case of games you are interacting with something while with movies you are just listening to a dialogue.

I asked my friend she said Mexicans do not use the alveolar tap and pronounce it just one way similar to rolling R but shorter and spain and a lot of other countries have both heres an example I'm curious about I thought up few words that I cant figure out regresar has 3 Rs cuerpo raro reaparecer recordar is there ever a time where there is more than one R in the word and they are pronounced differently R in the beginning of the word and tap the next R etc

  10. Me encanta todo the Gabriel Garcia Marquez! Super linda las palabras de "Cien Años de Soledad..." La primera cosa que yo leí de él fue "Croníca de una muerte anunciada." Mucho mas facíl para entender...
