  1. I know how we use standard learning apps to learn a foreign language but another way to learn maybe by watching foreign-language videos with subtitles, rather than without them. You can learn languages by reading books or taking classes but this doesn’t give you much exposure to the language. This means that your progress will be slow and frustrating since you won’t be able to use what you learned in real life situations very quickly. Watching foreign-language TV shows with subtitles allows you to get a lot of exposure to the target language without having to spend too much time studying it on your own. It gives me more confidence when I speak because I know that I have already seen how different words are used in context. However, finding good subtitle files for online video content can be difficult (and often illegal). SubtitleBee has an excellent subtitling service that auto generates high quality subtitle files for all kinds of videos on YouTube or personal uploads! It also has over 100 different languages for subtitles and translations so everyone can find something they like. I use this online subtitling service myself and wanted to share this with everyone. It has a free trial so others can try it out but I have found the paid description more useful as well
  2. Hi all, I am a PhD student at the School of Education at Durham University in the UK. I am researching polyglots’ beliefs about language learning, and the strategies that they adopt to successfully learn them. I have a short questionnaire that should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. If you are 18 or older and speak at least 4 languages at B1 level (CEFR) I would appreciate your help. The link is below. All responses are anonymous. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/polyglotsurvey Many thanks!

  5. 0xFLOW is a start-up company based in South Korea that is beta-testing a language-learning program that uses the latest YouTube content (such as movies, dramas, and other YouTube videos) as a fun and effective way to learn Korean. Users can create their own content that they want to learn from (or we can make it for them!) to practice different concepts such as vocabulary that is generated using AI technology, grammar using content in the YouTube video, sentences and translations that can be created into custom language-learning printed worksheets - or they can learn by using the text and translations mode. This program is ideal for Korean language-learners of every level, whether they are newly beginning their Korean-learning journey or just looking to refresh their memory. This program is free to use - just register at: https://flow.xflow.academy/Account/Login and you're good to go! Content in other languages is a development that is currently in progress, so we would appreciate any and all feedback from all users. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] (email) or on Kakao @zeroxflow with any questions or inquiries. Thank you and happy learning! The 0xFLOW Team

  7. Hey guys, My name is Nana and I am new to this community! I am fluent in 4 languages (Armenian, Russian, English, French) and currently I am working on my 5th one (Spanish)! Most of them I learned in school when I was young and now I am learning Spanish in college. But I know that for a lot of people the foreign language curriculum is not useful and mnay people cannot learn languages efficiently in school setting. So, I was wondering if you guys have personal experience you could share and tell everyone what works for you best. And, of course, any tips or recommendations (online apps or programs or youtube channels) or anything that helped you become one step closer to mastering a language is more than welcome!

  11. Hey guys, I wanted to share this great directory of free language learning resources. The site is specific to Spanish, but many of the apps and resources are available in all languages. Hope this helps! www.learningspanishforfree.net
  12. Now that I've been using it for a couple of weeks I can say taht it works properly, both in a technical and a economical level. I've found this online learning platform looking for skype exchanges with French and Italian natives (in free plafforms almost nobody show up even in the first meeting). At the first moment I said "oh oh, pay..." but actually is not bad. Registration is free and rates are fixed by teachers (qualified natives) and tutors (natives). Since my goal is to learn some Italian and practise French for free, I've become tutor, and help other guys to learn Spanish; and I use that money to learn Italian and French. It works, so I wanted to share it with you. I was on time for opening great offer, I don't know if it's still running... Ah, the link: http://www.lingostan.com Cheers!
  13. Lingopolo is a great free language learning tool: http://lingopolo.com/ It is still at an early stage of development but is already very useful to learn to speak Thai, French or Dutch.

  14. 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 [email protected] Have fun guys!
  15. Are you looking to learn a language? if yes then the best way to learn a language is through practice. If you practice with the native language speakers, you will learn it very easily. I have learn English language same way. Try this tip and you will be amazed by the results.
  16. Hello everyone! I have found practicing a new language with a group of people to be effective in helping me improve my learning. In this way, I get to know my mistakes and I get the help of my group when it comes to correcting my mistakes. We would speak together with the language we re studying and we get to see our individual strengths and weaknesses. Those who have the edge help those who are still having problems in their areas of weaknesses. Do you also practice in groups? What are your opinions about practicing in groups?

  18. I started learning German and Dutch two years ago, and if you're thinking I've mastered both languages, it is with sadness as I inform you that my German and Dutch have become much worse. Needless to say, it seems I am having problems retaining my progress from two years ago and remembering everything I've learned. I can't even recite numbers 1 through 10 in German anymore without peeking at my notebook! So, how about you-- how do you retain everything you've learned in the past from your language of choice?
  19. Hey everyone! If you're learning a language and you want an easy way to get started, check out this free learn a language challenge: https://rypeapp.com/learn-a-language It shares 10 of the most common words every morning to help you learn 1,000 words in 100 days. It's limited to Spanish and French right now.
  20. Is it the accent? The pronunciation? The sentence structure? For me it's the pronunciation. It's not enough to learn the words or know the system of writing, I guess. You also need to speak the language in a way that native speakers can relate to or understand. There are certain words that will take on another meaning when pronounced differently. That's why pronunciation is very important. You might inadvertently offend native speakers if you mispronounce a word with both positive and negative connotations.
  21. Hey everyone. I've been working on a website for language learners and travelers and would like to share it here. It is called UPhrasebook. The video would explain it better. Why I've decided to make something like this? Many successful language learners say it is better to learn phrases instead of single words. I didn't find anything quite like this online. Forvo is great for checking pronunciation. Although, this is the only thing it is good for. Plus it mostly works with single words. Google Translate and other machine translators often make awful translations and have artificial voices with weird intonations to voice out the words. The phrases you find in printed phrasebooks and online often don't have any explanations and might be weird and unnatural. At the moment there's still a lot of work to be done, but the core functionality is ready. I've already opened the registration for the public and would like to invite everyone to register and make some translations and record pronunciations to share your language knowledge with others. I've already done some translations myself (mostly from Russian, so check it out if you're learning Russian). Would love to get some feedback and suggestions as well.

  23. Hello community. Native spanish speaker here and I'm willing to help you with grammar explanations, translations and more. I helped people with their spanish before, when I was actively participating in a well known page called 'Lang - 8'. Anyway; Looking forward to provide any assistance. Regards;
  24. I was reading an article on language learning earlier, when I stumbled across an interesting point! The article stated that many people initially succeed at quickly picking up foreign language skills, but then hit a plateau, settling into some sort of comfort zone that they then find very difficult to get out of. It suggested that some people seem happy to just be 'good enough' at their chosen foreign language, as opposed to striving to be the very best at it. This doesn't apply to me, but I'm curious to see if any of you have experienced this? -and if you did, how did you push yourself to continue past that stage, in order to get to a higher level in your language skills?
