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
A perfect interpretation of the second language acquisition hypothesis～
This language software can help you learn any language such as Korean!
Come and swim in the ocean of languages together~
Hi everyone, I've created a youtube channel collating similar vocabulary in Mandarin, Japanese and Korean. I hope people learning any of these languages would find it easy to pick up the other languages as well. You can check out the latest video on my channel here: https://youtu.be/LjuWeyLnHiA
Does anyone know of any discord servers for language learning where people actually use the voice chat rooms to speak?
I have joined a few but the voicechat features are almost never used.
I'm a woman who is learning French, Esperanto and just starting Mandarin. English is my native language.
Thanks in advance
Learn new languages by reading anything you choose.
This was inspired by other site/projects like the opensource Lwt, the closed source lingq etc...
Here's how it works:
- You import any text you want. - When you read, there's a built-in dictionary which allows to quickly get its translation. - LingLibre marks in the text this word as saved with a particular color. The more you read, the more words appear as 'known'. There are still more functions as:
importing from other software like lwt, exporting to Anki Suggestion of similar words to the words you've already saved integration of Google translate to translate the whole sentence direct import of webpage, PDF, EPUB etc... keyboard shortcuts for very fast reading statistics etc...
