  1. One of the ways that I learned vocabulary in English was watching movies in English and reading the translation in the subtitles, I always thought that it helped me and my teacher always encouraged us to do so. After some time and practice I stopped using the translations as subtitles and started watching the movies with English subtitles so I could learn a little bit of orthography too. I think that is a fun way to learn a little bit more a language and to practice without knowing. I don't have English classes any more and I think that this has helped me to still have contact with English, wh
  2. I love reading books in English, especially the classics. One of my favorite authors, I have to say, is Jane Austen, and Vladimir Nabokov (though he is Russian). I was wondering what yours were
  3. Better English Issue #1 Wins Kirill participated in, and finished, his first half marathon on September 15, 2019. Kirill is a full time lawyer, father, husband and more! And yet, he managed to squeeze running into his hectic schedule. Read more about the race here. Kirill is pictured above with his family. (You can see the images on your laptop, if not on your phone!) Let me know of recent wins in your life, big or small, that you’re proud of! Write
  4. I wrote a small Android app for myself that has helped in my reading comprehension of numbers, in my case French numbers. Recently I put it up on the Google Play store so anyone can use it, and it's free of charge. It's basically a number drill, something like flash cards, but with user-configurable speed, font and number format. The object is to say or think the number before the next one is shown. You can start with, say, two digit numbers every 5 seconds in a clear font, or make it difficult with phone numbers in a handwriting font. The app will run in either English or French, d
  5. Hi, I would like to share a project offering bilingual stories to help children learn a language: Https://www.100-days.net/en/projekt/culture-NetWorld
  6. Good morning dear learners If you are interested in learning French I can propose you a great place. It is a French group on Facebook. I created this group yesterday (and I have already more than 200 people inside ! It is amazing). How does this group work ? Every week I propose an article from a famous newspaper and I make my followers read it, study it. I will propose soon some podcasts also to help my followers improving their listening skills. Of course it is 100% free. Concept : Learn French language by reading and listening current news from French Newspaper

  8. Are there books that you wish were translated into your native language? I have a lot of those. There are some excellent fiction and nonfiction books that I've read in English that I really enjoyed and I'm pretty sure my Polish and Russian friend would love too. Unfortunately, not all of them speak English, and the books have never been (and probably will never be) translated into Russian/Polish. Each time I keep thinking - why does it happen? Why so many really rubbish stuff gets to have a professional translation, but so many wonderful books never get the chance? Do you also h
  9. I know that sometimes the books we get assigned to read in school can be boring. However, I've found some interesting reads, and I'm interested in knowing what everyone's favorite (or least hated) book from school is. Mine was "The Outsiders".
  10. I was thinking about this not such a long time ago. I remember that several times, both in real life and on the Internet, I heard people say something like "I used to really like the books of X, but now that I've read his biography I no longer like that author". I've had the same happen to me a couple of times: really enjoyed the book but when I discovered some ugly facts about the author, I just couldn't look at the book with the same eyes. Is it important for you? Do you care what kind of person wrote the book you were reading, in any language? Have you ever felt disappointed when you learnt
  11. Sharing some techniques on how to learn German or say any other language (vocabulary, accent etc.) fast. 1. Read books – this is my favorite – good for those who love reading and at the same time wanting the benefit of learning the language on the side. You may be slow at first but that is normal because you are reading in different language and not in your mother tongue. My advice, try not to look to every word in the dictionary during your reading, just keep on reading, it would avoid you to get bored. I know it may sound not right but believe me, it works. 2. Listen when the nativ
  12. Have you heard of this method to learn a language? What do you think of it? For those who haven't heard about it, the method is all about reading books adapted in the following way: the original text has certain or all words translated to your native language, sometimes with additional explanations. So you get something like this: Le mariage (marriage) doit (must) incessamment (constantly) combattre un monstre (fight a monster) qui dévore (devours) tout (everything, all) : l'habitude (habit). (Balzac) The amount of words that are translated depends on your level. I've seen some books where you
