  1. Yes definitely. Sometimes I'm mad at myself for not taking advantage of all the opportunities that were handed out to me. Learning a language used to feel like a drag in school but I wish I had just pushed myself. And now all these private lessons are so expensive. Most of the time I usually go online and try to teach myself as much as I can. It's really time consuming though.
  2. I want to learn Italian too. But currently I'm still studying Hindy and the script is a bit hard for me but I'm getting the hang of it. I already know Spanish so yes, they're quite similar so I don't think it'll be that difficult. Good luck And I wish I could live in Europe too, I'm sure you'll have a ton of fun.
  3. One of the most embarrassing situation that I can think of is when there was a big meeting in school. This was the time I was learning English. So during the meeting, I had to pee really bad but I didn't know how to say "bathroom", "toilet" or "restroom". I thought I could hold it in but I couldn't so while I ran out of the room I said really loudly, "YELLOW WATER". Good times.
  4. I started learning English at a very young age, possible 4 or 5. I hated every minute of it though. I remember entering first grade and not knowing a single word in English. It was a really rough couple of months and I used to cry every day going to school. I got made fun at but I slowly learnt it and I picked it up quite fast. Before I knew it, I didn't want to go home from school.
  5. I don't live anywhere near a Spanish speaking country so it hasn't helped me at all. The only person I've conversed in Spanish were my classmates and my teacher. But I've always had a passion to travel and so I'm hoping it will be handy in the future. I just hope I don't lose the language before I can even get the chance to use it.
  6. I always find it super fun to learn a new language by watching a movie. I know Korean dramas are really popular and the only one I've watched (well, a couple of episodes) is Boys over Flowers. This seems to be a very popular one. Oh I also watched 2 episodes of Good Doctors. I would love any recommendation on any korean drama or movie. Preferably one that I can find with subtitles.
  7. I've heard of them before but never really listened to them. My friends are such K-pop fans and they're always playing them. I remember I dance to this one song, I can't remember the name or the artist but it goes like this, "GGGG baby baby". I think it's quite popular and I had so much fun doing the dance.
  8. The only people I've told that i'm learning Korean to are my Korean friends so everybody seems to be really excited. They've all been so encouraging. I've been teaching English and correcting their grammar for years now (we all went to the same boarding school) so now that they're fluent in English, I'm trying to learn their language for a change. The pronunciation seems to be the hardest part in learning Korean for me.
  9. Welcome to the forum, it's great to have you here! I just checked out your blog, it looks really great. I'm going to bookmark this. I have a lot of Korean friends and they've been trying to teach the language to me. Annyeong haseyo, Utdukee jineshuseyo? (not sure if I spelt any of these right!) I know a few words here and there and yes, the swear words too. Haha. Welcome again and see you around!
  10. I've personally never tried this myself but a friend of mine tutors English, not through skype specifically but some other messenger (not sure which anymore). She specifically teaches Korean students from 10 to 40 years. She was trying to get me into the programme a few months ago. I'll give it a go next year and let you guys know more about it.
  11. I speak the Lushai language which is also known as "mizo". It's only spoken by a specific tribe from India however our ancestors migrated from mongolia. So, it sounds a bit like a mix between Mandarin and Thai. It seems like a small and rare tribe in China speaks a very similar language. I think there are only a couple thousand people who speak this language.
  12. Hello everyone, As you might know i'm trying to learn Hindi and I always found that movies have really helped me in the past when I was learning Spanish. Could you suggest some good bollywood movies to help my Hindi and improve my vocabulary as well as a fun movie to watch? I would really appreciate it.
  13. Never heard of this tip either but it does sound interesting. Like a kid picks up on languages fast because he's around to 'acquire an ear' for the particular language. Maybe it's the same with adults after all?
  14. So sorry to hear about this but I do find it weird that he isn't trying to teach you. There are a lot of spanish websites you could go to. I would also learning about 10 vocabulary words everyday and this strategy helped me a lot because at the end of the week, I knew 70 more words . Watch a lot of Spanish movies too! Ofcourse with subtitles and it'll really help you.
