  1. But even if you dedicate yourself daily, it's still not easy and most people fail, or they peak and then start to forget/lose what they've learned. Why does this happen?? I'll tell you why. Because you're not immersed in the language that you are learning. If I was learning Italian, and I moved to Italy, then with tools like Duolingo, Babbel, and others that are designed for those harder languages, I can learn Italian fluently. But if I try to learn Italian from America, sure I can memorize many words, but that doesn't mean that I will retain much since I'm not surrounded by the language. Get ready, I'm going to pitch something, but know that it's something that I truly created for myself at first to solve the exact issue from above. Except my issue was to not forget my native language of Romanian since I moved to America at a very young age, and in my adult life I speak Romanian to very few people and very rarely. So naturally, I started slipping. Every couple of years I would go back to visit Romania for about a month, and in that month of being immersed in the language, it came back sooo much more than if I were to just practice at home on my own. Light bulb!! What if I could stay immersed in the Romanian language even in America, every day. That would be cool. Well, what do I already do every day.....I have conversations through text messages every day!! These convos are in English, but what if I could see those convos in Romanian too. Ahhhaaaaa! So I developed a simple text messaging app, that my wife and I, and a couple of family/friends used. It does what I described above, it shows me my convos in another language as well. I ended up placing it on the App Store, Apple even featured it in the "New Apps We Love" section. Check it out if interests you, and I would love your feedback. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/chatall/id1043435029 - (currently for iOS only - but there are plans for Android as well) See screenshot. I'm having a conversation in English on the left side, and on the right side my conversation is being translated in Spanish. Thanks, Adrian P.S. I'm not competing with the existing tools that take tackle language learning with more depth. Those are amazing tools that you should continue to use. But adding something like this to the mix to keep you immersed will make a BIG difference. P.S.S. If you are on iOS 13 already, there is a small bug with the formatting. The blue header at the top is missing (it's actually transparent). An update with a fix is coming in the next couple of days Apple always breaks something with their new releases. P.S.S.S. The app does not just use the regular Google Translator for the translations. I use Neural Machine Translations which is a software also being developed by Google, but it utilizes AI/machine learning to translate entire sentences, rather then word by word. This works much better for conversational/full sentence translations, and it's AI and machine learning driven so it constantly improves itself. Here's some more info on it --> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neural_machine_translation
  2. Hello everyone! I wanted to share a resource for speaking and conversation practice! For anyone looking to practice speaking other languages, the mobile app Jeenie is a great resource! It connects the user instantly via audio/video with a qualified bilingual for personalized practice. Currently you can use the app to practice Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish, in addition to English. And they are adding new languages constantly--next is American Sign Language. App download is free! Here is a link for a free 10 minute session https://jeenie.app.link/geQdfKxB8Z Simply download the app from the link and the minutes for a free session will automatically be loaded on your account! Happy learning!

  4. Hi all! Great that there's such a huge community of people out there just as passionate about learning languages as we are. I work for a small start-up based in Birmingham, UK, and it is our dream to make language learning fun, fast and effective for everybody. We've just released the latest version of our language learning app - FlashAcademy (www.flashacademy.com) - which contains more games and more language combinations than any other app. You can learn up to 18 languages from any other language - English to Welsh? Brazilian Portuguese to English? Bahasa to Danish? No problem! We're really excited about it and hope you guys will be too. We're always working hard to add new languages and are looking to add some character based languages such as Arabic, Japanese and Mandarin in the next few months. We also have FlashSticks, our unique language learning Post-it notes which you can stick up at home, work and school to make language learning a part of your everyday routine. They've been a big success, so if that sounds like something that could help you with some of the trickiest vocab then head on over to www.flashsticks.com and see what we can do for you. Hope you have a great time using FlashAcademy or FlashSticks - we hang around on this forum a lot so let us know if you have any comments, queries or issues, or contact us on team@flashsticks.com. Have fun guys!
  5. this app is available both in ios and android and it is free now with audio feature. while looking up a word with detailed definition you can see its wordnet. so you can check its hypernyms, hyponyms, synonyms, antonyms, holonyms, meronyms, related words, and some other wordnets which only linguist can differentiate actually:) another nice feature is that while reading the word's definition if you have any unknown word in the definition you can look it up just by clicking on it. you will go to a new page just as in looking up a new word. as extra features we can favour the words. and in the more features, there are word scramble, hangman, anagrams, flashcards and word of the day . and for the last feature l should mention I can say that it is sometimes the best useful side of the app to me. If you have a long word to look up, you can practically use your device cam and go on the word and wait until the app detect the word. the detected words are listed and you can choose any to look up by clicking. I hope you will like the app. waiting for your feedbacks...
