  1. I know most of the Pan Asian languages have similar scripts and notions, even words. How to learn them simultaneously?
  2. What could happen is correct, adding a have sound weird and is incorrect. The latter is correct.
  3. Usually heated arguments for me turn into funny dialects when I use my native language suddenly in the midst of the quarrel. This is call for some laughs for sure. Tamil is a language which can be used in order to diffuse the situation here, in India.
  4. I do not like glycol ether. This is a weird chemistry pun which makes ether sounds like either.
  5. English is one of the most simplest languages ever. This is because it has borrowed words from Latin and almost other medieval languages. And most speakers tend to recognise english words and probably make it sound similar to their native language.
  6. Google Translate is just average I would say. It does not link the words with the adjectives or the translate term and most likely for any translation you need to look up the meaning for sure. This is because of the program which is developed to just translate sentences word by word. Changes will not be applicable and no conjunction is done.
  7. A dictionary is a must. Other than that I use Google Translate a lot to gather new words and study their meanings in a lot. Beyond that Duolingo helps master new phrases and words in a very convenient and easy way. This makes learning more fun, that's what a lot of people who I know have used the app say.
  8. Self learning also is an option but I would suggest you take help from someone. At least you can take the help of DuoLingo which makes language learning a very easy and attractive process. That is how you master complex words, by phrasing it in sentences and by making attempts to renew and replenish words by practise.
  9. Learning new words is the key. Maybe practising a bunch of words everyday is bound to help. Watching movies in the regional languages also helps.
  10. One of the motivating factors in learning another language is the necessity. If you go to a foreign place and you don't know the language, that's where need creeps in. Survival is really hard without knowing the local dialect. And hence stemmed our need to learn new languages.
  11. Betty Botter bought some butter; "But," said she, "this butter's bitter! If I put it in my batter It will make my batter bitter. But a bit of better butter Will but make my batter better." Then she bought a bit of butter Better than the bitter butter, Made her bitter batter better. So ´twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.
