  1. I usually talk to my Venezuelan friend and when i hear him speak Spanish so well, I just naturally get motivated!
  2. I don't really like The Godfather films but i loved that part!
  3. Lol, was he making fun of the other person's accent?
  4. I don't think I've watched that movie. What is that they were talking about?
  5. "Live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse." I find this one very interesting. it's from the movie "knock on any door" and it was said by Nick Romano.
  6. I've never heard "tweep" or "gamification". I think it's ok to add them to the dictionary. Words are continually added to the dictionary as they're are invented.
  7. I'm the complete opposite of you. That's why i don't enjoy watching movies because at the back of my mind i'm thinking it's all fake so why watch it?
  8. Ketchup and catsup are one and the same. The words' origin is actually Asian and the western people just call it that.
  9. As others have said, you don't have to teach her languages one by one. I speak three languages so i think your child would be able to learn all three languages without a problem.
  10. I always use the word cheque to mean banker's cheque. That's what i was taught in school. I always thought 'check' was the american version of that word.
  11. Wow! I see the language families are numerous. I thought they were five or six!
  12. I think you're right about the accent part. But I'm working on my accent and i think it's fairly good. Just needs polishing.
  13. I did! I was taught English in school from when i was a kid. All children are taught English in my country but only a few speak it fluently since we also have other native languages which people prefer to speak.
  14. The best and fastest way to learn a language is to be around people who only speak that language. That 'forces' you to grasp the language and that way it becomes more natural to you.
  15. I don't think that would happen especially when the languages are so different. But if you don't want to take chances then you might want to learn the languages at different times.
  16. I'm multilingual but i don't have any issues in regard to pronunciation or clarity of words. The only issue i have is that i tend to forget some words in my mother tongue since i no longer speak it a lot.
  17. They both have their advantages and disadvantages but group class has always worked well for me. One on one class would be uncomfortable for me.
  18. I'm not a big fan of fiction but i have read it in English. But i don't think it's fair to say that because even though English is not my native language, i've spoken it since i was a kid.
  19. Sorry to disappoint you but you can't learn it in 5 months. I can tell you this from experience. But don't let this discourage you. Just keep learning it.
  20. I'm also afraid of failing at learning Spanish. This is because just when i think i'm finally getting it, i hear someone say something in Spanish and i have no idea what they said.
  21. wow, do you know how hard i looked for something like that back when i was only starting to learn Spanish?? I wish i saw that link back then. Yes, i believe that would be very helpful to a beginner.
  22. Yes i do! I watch an telenovela from 2004 called Rubi. It's very easy to learn watching it because it's very interesting and the protagonist is very interesting as well.
  23. I'm not a native speaker but i thought i read somewhere that both can be used when the process is still taking place. For example, "Mi mamá viene" and "Mi mama está viniendo" both mean "My mother is coming"
  24. Once i'm able to speak fluent Spanish i will travel to Venezuela to finally meet my best friend in person who lives there. He played a very big role in my learning Spanish and i'm very grateful to him.
  25. Unlike you, i'm not a native Spanish speaker but I'm learning it. My main weakness has to do with differentiating words that sound similar. Sometimes i might use a really bad word while trying to say something completely unrelated.
