  1. @abonnen I feel you, but you could always try to get used to talking to yourself to make it easier for you to learn, you don't really need a certain schedule for it, just be creative.
  2. I don't really consider it necessary since I could look up any word with my phone which is way better than carrying a book everywhere, for real.
  3. I will recommend you to learn how to think in the language you're trying to learn, I'm pretty sure thatwill bump you up really quick.
  4. I really wouldn't consider learning a language as something you would study because studying means boring, annoying and whatnot, for real, you should call it somehow else
  5. I don't think so, it also depends on your mother language, indeed.
  6. Welcome aboard! Have a good time and enjoy!
  7. Hey there! IT's good to have you around! Have agreat time and enjoy your stay here!
  8. I'd pick out French, Mandarin, English and Spanish as the most important ones, for real.
  9. @Lingvo that's why people have to start learning languages since they're young or kids, otherwise it's going to get really hard for them to learn and such thing, for real. Time is a thing for most people nowadays.
  10. I think that movies are the ones that have the biggest influence on me when it comes to language learning andthat sort of thing, that's how I learn the common slang and also some phrases as well. Music is quite good as well, but it's not as effective as movies, that's just my opinion though.
  11. I believe you. By the way, are you from Mexico? or where are you from exactly? I'm looking to get along with other Hispanic people interested on languages learning, hit me up soon.
  12. Despite English is not your mother language, you really know your way around with it, for real. It's such a good thing to see that there are many people from all around the world who have managed to dominate the language, it's really cool, indeed. Hopefully you can learn a lot here, we're all friendly so dont you even think about it twice before asking anything. Welcome again.
  13. It really becomes a problem when you don't have enough time to invest on practicing and learning, it's really bad, for real. As long as I know, if you really want something you will just go for it no matter what, that's why you have to ask yourself if you really want it and how badly you want it in order to increase or probably decrease your motivation. Good luck.
  14. Hey there! Welcome aboard! Hopefully you can spend a good time here and learn a lot about your favorite languages. Enjoy your stay
  15. I don't live in a country where people speak the language I'm trying to master, but I've managed to practice with myself so I can develop an accent and sound as natural as possible. Many people have asked me if I'm from the US, some other people think I'm from China, but it doesn't really affect me in any ways, even when I've worked really hard to get my own accent.
  16. Personally, I like both of them, for real. I really like the way that British English sounds, as you say, it's more sophisticated in some way, even more than the American one, but I feel way more comfortable when using an American accent since it's easier for me to flow as I speak. It is kind of a tricky thing to understand, but learning to speak with a British accent could be a good thing if you also have an American accent. The fact you can switch between languages makes it really cool, indeed.
  17. It's something really common when it comes to gaming and that sort of virtual stuff. As a gamer, you probably will notice that everybody types like that because it's somehow more comfortable to do since writing a full sentence or phrase could take you a little while, that's why shortcuts are always going to be there for u.
  18. I actually consider myself the best English speaker in my University and I'm not the best at math, not either at physics. It definitely has nothing to do with your ability to learn languages. I really consider that every single person is as intelligent as others, the only detail is that some people care more than other.
  19. I don't really know if you can actually consider a language easier than others because it basically depends on your skills level and your mother tongue in some ways, that's why learning English is always going to be easier for a Swedish guy than for a Portuguese one. There are many factors to take into account when it comes to the 'easiest' languages. That's just my opinion.
  20. I've tried that a couple of time and I have to be honest with you, it definitely works. I personally think that it's a good way to develop your listening skills since you're mostly going to be listening to basica vocabulary which will be easy to understand in some way, however, it doesn't mean that you have to skip the normal series or movies, you still have to try the hard way to balance your abilities. That's my opinion though.
  21. Since Spanish is my native tongue, I definitely have a ton of songs that I like, but there are some of them I like more than the others, such as Aunque no te pueda ver - Alex Ubago. I really love the way that guy sings, however, he hasn't composed any more songs ever since some years ago, but I'm pretty sure he's still around and sounding all around latin america and Spain.
  22. Hey there! It's such a pleasure for us to have you around with us all. Hopefully you can have a good time here and learn a lot of new stuff. Welcome aboard!
  23. Yes, I have. I still rememebr when I was in the process of learning English and everything seemed to be super difficult and weird for me, for real. Everything used to be kinda tricky and complicated, until I finally realized that practice was the key for absolutely anything I may have wanted to do back then, that's why I kept on learning until now. I've not ever thought about quitting ever again, that's not something I'd ever do, indeed.
  24. The hardest part for me used to be the fact of speaking in public back in the days when my accent was horrible and nobody could understand a single word I said, for real. It really feel awkward when you're speaking and nobody could understand you in any way. That's what motivated me the msot to develop an accent and try to sound as good as possible and well, I'd have to say that it really helped me out. indeed.
  25. My parents think I'm crazy because I'm always speaking English with myself, it really is a weird thing to hear and see, but it definitely is useful when it comes to practicing. I consider myself an organized and dedicated person when talking about language learning and that sort of thing that requiere a lot of dedication if you really want to get good at them, that's why being dedicated and passionate about the languages will always be a must.
