  1. Hola, ¿ qué tal ? I propose something. Can we share some vocabularies about the theme : "Introduce oneself" like for instance : "My name is etc." "I am a student", "I am aworker", "My family is", I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters" etc. I will keep this topic update: it means that as soon as I have new vocabularies I will edit this message. So that people who want to learn Spanish on this forum could learn this theme by watching directly to the first message of this topic. What do you think ? Is it a good idea ? ¿ Una buena idea es ? Muchas gracias ! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SHEET OF WORDS LINKED TO THIS THEMA : Me llamo ... : My name is/I call myself Soy De ... : I am from/I come from ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ People who contributes to the writing of this sheet : Mereloshn ! A big thank you to you
  2. Hello everyone, I hope this message finds you well. My name is Luis. I am currently studying to become a UX/UI Designer, and I am seeking individuals with experience with learning vocabulary using educational or flashcard apps. I am building my own, and I would love to learn from your expertise. If that sounds like you and you would be willing to speak to me for 15 - 20 minutes online, please fill out my twenty-second form, and I will get back to you! Or, if you know someone, please share this message with them. Thank you so much! Respectfully, Luis
  3. Hi Liceo Cervantino students, this forum is for you to tell us the activities you did during your summer vacation. Please use at least 50 words. You also have to comment at least 15 posts of your classmate to complete your activity.
  4. 大家好!I wanted to share my free pop-up dictionary that allows you to learn Chinese while watching your favorite shows on Netflix and reading on the web. You can bookmark new words and export them to flashcard decks. Both ‘s’ and ‘b’ will save/bookmark words. You can download the extension for free here: https://www.inkah.co/ Here’s also a short video tutorial on how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7srrvsXi2k I hope you all find this helpful! 加油!
  5. Hello linguaholics! I'm conducting a survey on Chinese language learners, to understand how we discover new words in the language. Your responses would really be invaluable to my Master thesis, which is centered around Chinese vocabulary learning and it's aimed at the creation of a prototype . The survey shouldn't take more than 5-6 minutes of your time and it's completely anonymous. https://forms.gle/Gv7DmLMCiqFUbpU39 If you have any comments or want to share your personal experience on discovering new vocabulary, we can also have a discussion here of course!
  6. Salut! I'm probably more lazy than most, but I've always struggled with remembering vocabulary. I took French in high school and college, and have had an "on and off again" relationship with practicing ever since. There's always so many things I want to do, and French ends up taking a backseat. I'm a developer, so me and a few friends made a free chrome extension to fix this. It immerses you in French or Spanish vocabulary on any website you visit. It's a pretty cool way to pick up new words, and it's really subtle, so you can keep it on for months at a time - and stay up to date with your vocab forever! We'd love it if you gave it a shot and let us know how we could make it even better for language learners Check it out here! www.usefluent.co
  7. Hi everyone, We'd like to introduce a website to help learners improve their English at https://lingonut.com. Lingonut helps you learn by reading and listening to fun and educational news. Each article comes with vocabulary notes and a quiz. In the future, learners can also save these notes to track their learning. We're working hard to make the website a useful learning platform. Please let us know if you have any suggestions! Hope this helps! Good luck and have fun learning!
  8. What does "faite" mean? What does "faîte" mean? What is the difference between the two if any? Is there any cultural significance? Does either word have any slang or connotations associated? What does each word make someone feel? Is it just a basic everyday word or is one rarely used or for a special occasion?
  9. Hi everyone, I wrote an article where I collected my thoughts & my friends' experience on the most powerful approaches to improve vocabulary and empower language learning. Check it here https://wordy.tilda.ws/how-to-improve-vocabulary. Hope you will find it useful and entertaining! That would be interesting to know your approaches as well
  10. Hi all, We are a group of enthusiasts whose hobby is language learning. We know how difficult it could be to learn new language and improve vocabulary, so we decided to build an app that will always be with you and will allow to quickly add the words you meet while learning language. So far we are preparing the following ways to add new words: by typing them with a keyboard (usual way for most of flashcards) by taking the picture (you will be able to take a photo from a book and add several words in a row, translation can be added automatically) by speaking them / from the audio We are now preparing Beta version of Wordy Flashcards app and will be ready to release it in AppStore soon, please check it at Wordy Flashcards Generator web page . Look forward to your contribution!
  11. Could you help me, how can I improve my speaking task: From my point of view, the Polish education system has many failings, but the main failing is an attitude of many teachers in Polish schools. Firstly, the relation between student and teacher is too weak. It means that the teacher should discuss more with students. Moreover, the teacher ought to teach more individually. For example, if some students have many problems with speaking, the teacher should help him by giving advice, how to improve his speaking. I mean that the teacher should not only point out mistakes but also the teacher ought to help how to resolve the problem. In this case, the problem of students’ speaking. In other words, the teacher should be an instructor, who gives the student a helping hand. A few years ago I heard in some English Podcast that ‘teaching is not just testing”. I totally agree with this statement. The most important value of teaching should be helping how to improve students’ abilities. That is why, I think, that the teachers and lecturers should reduce the number of tests during the school or the academic year. Let’s move on to another disadvantage of the Polish education system. Personally speaking, I think that a core curriculum is inappropriate. In Polish middle schools, secondary schools and universities there are many unnecessary subjects, which are time-consuming, for instance: chemistry, Information Technology or biology. If some students are not keen on this subjects, and they are sure that these subjects are not their cup of tea, they should learn at the same time their preferred subjects such us English or Mathematics to polish up their abilities. If a student is not a biology fan, he should not waste their time in a subject which is not prospective for him or her. The best solution to solve this problem is a new curriculum. The student is aware which subjects can be useful for him in the future, and which subjects are completely unnecessary for him or her. To sum up, if we want to improve the Polish education system, Polish teachers should be more patient and should work with students more individually instead of working in groups. I do not want to criticize working in groups, but in my opinion, working in groups is less effective than individual work. What is more, teachers should reduce the number of tests because the tests take too much time. As I meant, the core curriculum should be also changed because there are too many unnecessary subjects.

  13. I work at Pandanese (just know I am biased but honest ) and would like to introduce our app to Linguaholic community. Hope it will be useful for some of you who learn Chinese. So, Pandanese is a web application focused on teaching the Simplified Chinese vocabulary. It's way more common in the world both offline and online (except in Taiwan, Macau, and Hong-Kong). It uses Space Repetition System (check out Anki) to learn and review in set intervals to match the mind's natural processing speed of building memories. See pic below. We use spaced repetition with our first intervals at 4 hours after learning and 8 hours after your first correct review. All in all, it takes 9 reviews (SRS-levels) to memorize the item. Pandanese teaches from the very basic -- from radicals through characters to vocabulary. It goes without saying Our app uses mnemonic sentences to help memorize the meaning and pronunciation. It's proven to aid with memorization too. I know that some of you are still locked down, and perhaps it's is the perfect time to learn or review some Chinese characters and words. Everybody is welcome onboard! Note that the Pandanese lessons start from the very basic -- the simplest radicals, characters and words. See Lesson 1 structure. So if you are at the intermediate or advanced level, I would recomment to start from later lessons or choose higher learning speed. We are a really small team who work part-time. So, I'm sure it's not perfect but we're doing our best, and your feedback will be really appreciated.

Vocabulary Expansion Did you know that in English we don’t eat coffee? We drink coffee. We have coffee. We imbibe coffee. We sip coffee. But we don’t eat it. Eating involves mastication, involves chewing. What about ice cream? We don’t eat ice cream, either. We don’t chew it. However, we don’t simply swallow ice cream, either, as if it were a liquid! We have ice cream. We don’t eat ice cream. We don’t imbibe ice cream. We don’t sip ice cream. We just have ice cream. That’s it! When speaking of consuming any solid food, semi-solid food, soft food or liquid, the safest, and always correct, verb to use is “to have”.

Listening Comprehension Challenge Secrets of Success in 8 Words, 3 Minutes What was this person saying and what made understanding them so challenging? What could this person have done to make it easier for his audience to understand him? How can you make your English easier for your audience to understand? Gems from Class interested vs interesting Both interested and interesting are adjectives. interested says something about how the subject feels For example: I am interested in travel. In this sentence, “I” is the subject. This sentence talks about how “I” feel. interesting says something about the power of the subject to make other people feel a certain way. For example: Travel is interesting. In this sentence, “Travel” is the subject. This sentence talks about the fact that “travel” has the power of making people feel a certain way. For more practice and to subconsciously learn the rules, do some online exercises. Here is a link. Repeat the exercise many times until you get 100% correct repeatedly. Pronunciation & Intonation met SOUNDS LIKE set, bet debt, jet, let, net, pet met is the simple past affirmative form of the verb “to meet” meet SOUNDS LIKE meat, seat, neat, feet, feat, Crete meet is one of the simple present affirmative forms of the verb “to meet” the other simple present affirmative form of the verb “to meet” is meets Tip: When reading and writing, use your voice! When you use your voice, you’ll be less likely to write “met” when you mean “meet”. You’ll be less likely to write one word, when you really mean another one.

  15. Please, could you recommend me some good textbooks on learning and practising my English vocabulary for either mathematics, physics, pharmacology, or chemistry? (Something like both "Macmillan Vocabulary Practice Series: Geography" and "Oxford English For Careers".)
  16. Here, I want to recommend a good Android App to learn and memorize Japanese vocabulary. Japanese Vocabulary (N1~N5) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digi.japanesevocabulary&hl=en I found that it contains many vocabulary (cover JLPT N5 up to N1) with awesome text UI, and pronunciation is supported. The mini game inside the app also helps me in memorizing the newly learned vocabulary. No additional money is needed. All the content are completely free!!! Please try it if you are free.

  23. The application world has yet to see something as unique as Tapxicon. Although there are many dictionary and English learning apps available, none delivers like Tapxicon; both in terms of content and use. With the ease of browsing words on the go, Tapxicon changes what was once a tiresome and boring task into an effortless review by allowing phone users to comprehend the word that they see on that LCD, in a manner that hardly takes effort and most definitely doesn’t feel like a textbook being shoved in their faces. Let’s face it, improving your vocabulary whilst browsing Facebook is more enjoyable than reading a dictionary. But if you prefer that, we won't judge (or would we?). Tapxicon is the companion you never had. The companion who tells you all the tasty goodness of a word. This includes: • Definitions • Audio Pronunciation • Phonetic Notation • Synonyms • Antonyms • Usage • Derivation • Hierarchical Information such as- type, part, substance. Other features include: • Verb Conjugation- four subcategories of conjugation: indicative, subjunctive, conditional and imperative. • Part of Speech Tagger- input a sentence and find the part of speech for each word in that sentence. Please try it out and leave feedback. We're always happy to hear from you (unless it's something negative...just kidding)! LINK --> Grab it here! Thanks!
  24. I wonder if anyone here has an English word (or maybe even many words!) that you not can only remember as such, but also you remember the time/day/moment/ when you acquired it? If you do, please share your words with me! It's so interesting that some words really do stay with you, and do it so well that you can even memorise how they did it I'll share some of mine. "drawback" - I remember I saw this word first when I was in my 7th school year, in the school English textbook. I was so amazed that I hadn't found such a useful word before. Stayed with me ever since. "point of view" - this one came from Unit 1 in Blueprint Upper Intermediate Student's Book when I was in my 10th year "brocade" - came across this one 4 years ago while reading some Agatha Christie. It seemed so rich and decadent, both in meaning and sound, that somehow I remembered it immediately. "to lurk" - first saw it in "Good Omens" (a very funny book, by the way). Imagined someone "lurking" very vividly. Added it to my vocabulary. Do you have words like that too?
