  3. So sad that you couldn't be with someone you seemed to like due to language barrier.Effective communication is at the heart of every successful relationship yet it amazes me how many couples take it for granted! To answer your question, I would consider marrying someone with whom I had no shared language if the chemistry was right and we were both committed towards making it work.

  4. Hey everyone! I have recently started a YouTube channel related to language learning, and am becoming more and more interested in the idea of meeting and talking (in a podcast style) to many different people involved in language learning with interesting stories to tell. They can be anything, from polyglots speaking a multitude of different languages, to language learning App- or website developers, to scientific researchers in the language learning field. So, if you think you have an interesting story to tell and would enjoy having a conversation about it, please, let me know (by replyin

  6. Thanks for the feedback! You are right, I should have definitely specified that more, thanks for letting me know. I did cover your point of learning vocab through context though, when I mentioned learning the words for everyday objects around the house (the sticky-notes approach) and also when writing your grocery shopping lists in your target language instead fo your mother tongue. These are both examples of vocabulary you learn through the context of your everyday life that are individual and not standardised in the same way for everybody (it depends on the things you use, the foods you

  10. Hi there! I'm Arnold and I'm a new member on this forum. I'd like to introduce myself in real conversation and have a fun time just by practicing English. I'm 27 years old and I'm an English educator. I've been in the field for about four years now and I want to keep on studying and help others with the language. I also speak Spanish as a native speaker, so we can exchange if you are interested!! Just let me know.

  11. Yes, YouTube is now the best resource for language learning. And the most important thing is free. I just read yesterday an essay on emigrants https://eduzaurus.com/free-essay-samples/immigration/ in our time. And there was an amazing story of a man who went a long way from a beggar to a big businessman. And he learned the language from a lesson on YouTube. And he started his own business, too, based on free materials on the Internet.

  13. Brainstorming, a method of finding a solution to a problem through the expression of ideas. Brainstorming has its own characteristics - participants express many ideas (including the most incredible ones), are not immediately discussed, all the more criticized, and then the most interesting and promising options are selected from the list. You can do the same! Just figure out the most unlikely ideas. But there are also difficult situations. For example, I am now writing my first novel, and it is quite difficult for me because I don’t know any good writing techniques. If you are interested in w

  14. For some, writing an essay is as easy as sitting down at a computer and starting typing. But it takes a lot more planning to write an essay successfully. If you have never written an essay before, or if you find it difficult to write and want to improve your skills, it is recommended that you follow several important steps in the essay writing process. For example, to write an essay, you must: 1.decide which essay to write 2.brainstorm your topic 3.research the topic 4.choose the writing style 5.develop a thesis 6.sketch your essay 7.write your essay 8.edit your text to

  17. In response to: https://linguaholic.com/linguablog/untranslatable-japanese-words/ As someone who is surrounded with Japanese in every day life, I consider Japanese easy to use, but hard to translate. It's very difficult to have a good translation from or to Japanese without sounding weird in either Japanese or the other language, but using Japanese directly is quite easy (once you're at the point where you no longer need to rely on another language to speak Japanese that is). A 12th word I want to add to this list would be 神様 (kami-sama). Learning materials teach you that it mean

  18. Maybe the use of pictures might be easier to understand instead. Because if you have a class of people speaking different native languages, it might cause some people to not understand. A story that makes perfect sense to an English speaking American might make no sense at all to a Mandarin speaking Chinese for example. And I myself can't really think of stories for all conjugations. But one I recommend you to teach the most of the differences between for example 食べれる and 食べられる, it's pretty easy to say "I was eaten by a raw fish" while you meant to say "I can eat raw fish".

  22. Yes, I think" armour" is often used instead of "suit of armour", which can be a bit confusing. "Glass of water" is used all the time, "piece of luggage" isn't. The sentence doesn't always make the word classification clear.

  23. Yes, basically. "suit of armour" is countable. You would wear a suit of armour but not an armour. It's like having a glass of water instead of a water or a piece of luggage instead of a luggae. I agree that it sounds a little confusing.If a countable noun (suit, glass, piece) goes first then there's nothing in the sentence to tell you that the uncountable noun is uncountable. This can be a bit tricky, I agree.

  24. Bonjour, I was listening to this cover of Nea's Some Say and half of it is in French. I understand French a little bit, but with songs it's more difficult. I'm especially having trouble with the line following Et j'attendrai, j'attendrai, it's at 1:27. If someone would help me with it I'd be very happy! And if someone transcribed the entire French part that would just be amazing. Merci! https://youtu.be/9WDbtHJqDG8?t=87

    Hello Everyone

    Thank you so much, well I think it's a beautiful language and culture, besides, I have started to make Japanese friends online who know some english, so I want to show respect by learning the language, not to mention there is an incredibly diverse range of art, literature, music etc. which I'm looking forward to exploring more.

    Super interesting, I didn't know I would have that amount of precision. I'll keep that in mind while choosing the new name of my Character! Thanks!

  29. "Mira" is quite a common name for fictional characters. In fiction (comics, anime, drama, novels, games, etc.) you have more freedoms in giving names than in real life. There are real life Japanese people with a hiragana or katakana name, but society might think that you're a foreigner if you don't use kanji, and in some occations it might cause problems. And there's a list of forbidden names which I had the link to, but apparenly can't find it back now. This ban of course doesn't apply to fictional characters. Like when I had to sign up at the gas and electricity company, desp

    Thank you so much!! I didn't find any clear informations online about that and your explanation couldn't be any clearer!!! I should definitly change the name of Mira then hehe I really don't want to call her mirror. Thanks again! You were a big help!

  31. Mira actually means "mirror", not "stubborn". Yep. Own grandchildren call their grandmothers "baa-chan"(ばあちゃん). If people are describing somebody elses grandma, "obaa-san"(おばあさん)is used, or simply "Hanako-san"(花子さん or 華子さん). In general, おばあさん is used by friends (insiders), or by people who don't know her name. And 花子さん or 華子さん is used by strangers (outsiders) in formal setting (hospital, university, wedding, etc.). In business situations, 花子様 or 華子様(Hanako-sama)is used. Just "baa" alone is never used at all. And "oobasan" and "Hanako baa" simply don't exist.

  34. As a language teacher I have to disagree. ( I teach German, French and English) I`m talking about Switzerland in the following and of course there are exceptions to my statements: French natives hate learning German more than anything else. Swiss-German natives hate learning French more than anything else. But now and then there are students that like that language and what I observed is: Even if a French native loves German, his level of proficiency in German is lower,than that of a German native that hates French in French. And that`s not because I t
