    lingvo got a reaction from Janne G Pirinen in Por que te interesaste aprender algun otro idioma?   
    *conexión
    *Además
    * Quienes hablan* español. Hablan is a conjugated term from "hablar", when the third person is plural, is written like that in present tense: hablan. Ellos hablan, ellas hablan...

    lingvo got a reaction from yong321 in Treating ch as a letter and sorting after c   
    I don't care much about it. I always regarded it as something composed by two letters, instead of an individual one.

    lingvo got a reaction from lushlala in Enrolling in a Class or Studying on Your Own   
    A language camp is the ideal environment to learn your target language in an efficient manner, but they are rather expensive. Learning on your own has the benefit in allowing you to advance further in your study without boundaries, but people have limitations, therefore you should be aware that you'll hit a milestone where you'll need some tutoring help.

    *1 También.
    *2 "ir a comer" instead of "ir de comer", "ir de comer" is like writing in english "go of eat" instead of "go to eat.". Remember you're going "to" eat, so you should use "a" to point the subject towards a direction. voy al cine, voy a la playa, iré a la ciudad etc.

    lingvo got a reaction from untalleslie in Es vs Está   
    Whole books and long has been discussed about the main verbs of spanish: ser and estar. As everyone of you already know, Ser and estar can both be translated as "to be." Let's check out how curious is this thing:
    Notice that these two sentences can have different meanings both in English and spanish.
    You see there, when I'm referring to an attribute, like the color of someone or something, "es" is used. When you want to express the "state" of someone or something, you use "estar" instead. "García está vivo", "García es alto", "Garcia es moreno","García está en el baño","Garcia es tímido", "Garcia está comiendo", etc.

    lingvo got a reaction from frankfurt in What motivates your Language Learning?   
    Motivation is key to learn a language. Even if you are some memory whizkid, without motivation you will not be able to succesfully learn a language . For me, there are tons of reasons that would motivate to learn a language: moving to a country, cultural love, foreign couple etc. I learnt english by my own because all the media I was putting my time into it was originally in english. Like videogames or books.

    lingvo got a reaction from 宇崎ちゃん in Do you sit exams?   
    Only if is required to achieve a profitable return. I dislike to sit several hours and stay under constant pressure even when I handle well stress conditions when I'm taking an exam. In other words, I find it unpleasant and would do it only for job or something serious. Never because I want to challenge myself  taking tests or something like that.

    lingvo got a reaction from lushlala in Is it easier to learn foreign swear words?   
    Because sear words are easy to grasp. Is easier than trying to understand, say, how  a person ask for direction speaking in certain language. Is way I see it, therefore is not necessarily true. Also I think that another reason is because is something that  We could find  amusing enough  to yell profanities in another language.

    lingvo got a reaction from lushlala in Learning a new language from children's shows   
    A decent approach. In fact, for example, a good japanese learning process in the beginning is watching kid's shows instead of  anime or j-drama. That also applies to easier languages (almost every other language except mandarin, cantonese or arabic), tons of elemental vocabulary and context to improve fast.
