    I will take another look because I do feel bad that I cannot communicate properly and it is frustrating writing everything down and getting confusion back. Wouldn't it be nice to know how to speak any language by the touch of a button!

    NATASHA got a reaction from wolfette in Have some patience   
    Teaching a language to people who are not native to it can be difficult and you have to understand that it is not easy even if you are teaching basic language lessons. The students might not be able to speak at all and to have patience to teach and explain is necessary for them to learn and speak back to you but the reward is once they are able to speak after your teaching skills

    NATASHA got a reaction from Saholy in Love the language you learn   
    To learn a language is very difficult if you are not really interested in it so pick a language that you would love to speak and this will make it easy to learn because passion makes it easy! I find that when you are interested in the country and the people then that motivates you when you are learning the language. Does anyone else feel this way?

    NATASHA got a reaction from Wordeys in Pronounciation   
    It is important to learn how to pronounce words because sometimes the way words are said could mean something completely different or you will find people still don't understand you. To do this it is a good idea to get a video or sound clip of words that you have troubles with so that you are able to play back and repeat what you are hearing.

    NATASHA got a reaction from kitty55 in Rosetta Stone   
    I personally feel that language lessons are best done through a person that can stop if you dont understand and move on if you are progressing. I have not tried the Rosetta but I did go for language lessons at a college and found that so much more useful.
    I tried to do some of the lessons via youtube but it is frustrating when you need to ask questions about tenses or certain words that cnnot be explained by anything other than a teacher.

    NATASHA got a reaction from Wanda Kaishin in TEXT tALK   
    There is nothing worse than having a conversation with someone and they shorten their words according to text lingo. Lol, btw.....you know what I mean. I had a conversation with someone the other day and the entire sentence was shortened by these text words and I find it really sad that the language cant just flow!

    Weird is one that is "ei" instead of "ie".  No "c" in there.

    'I' after 'E': albeit, agreeing, height, kaleidoscope, beige, eight, either, weight, reign, reinstall, reinforce, receive, deceive, deity, feisty, rein, etc.
    'I' before 'E': pie, piece, field, shield, brief, chief, relief, mischief, niece, shriek, diesel, movie, auntie, charlie, calorie, genie
    To be honest, they gave  me headache, but are a great way to stay focused.

    NATASHA reacted to AExAVF in I before E except after C   
    Most common words always feature the "I before e" rule.  Achieve, belief, chief, and relieve are just some.  Deceive, deceit, conceit, and perceive always fall under the "except after c" rule.  There are words which do not follow the "i before e except after c" rule, such as reinforce, heir, and leisure.  It's pretty easy if you know these rules by heart as well as the words which fall under any of these categories.  If one word falls under one category, it will not be put in any of the others.

    NATASHA got a reaction from czarina84 in The art of a good greeting   
    When you greet or meat someone for the first time, it is important to be pronounced and casual at the same time. Greetings for strangers are different to greetings with friends and there is a big difference when it comes to colleagues at work.
    Pleased to meet you"
    Good afternoon Sir, Madam
    These are formal greetings.
    Casual ones would be "Hi" Hello, and in South african "Howsit!"

    Which one do you use for slang in your country?
