Learn Chinese through this little thing
Hello everyone, I am glad to share my second language learning experience with you.
My mother tongue is Chinese, and like many people, my second is English. The third Spanish because of my interest.
The second foreigner is required for exam-oriented education. I started to learn English in the third grade of elementary school. At that time, the teacher would memorize words and pronunciation, of course, it all started with very simple greetings. Most of the impressions are rote memorization, and more are recitations, such as words and articles.
There are requirements for learning indicators and test scores in the classroom, so learning a second language is not easy. More importantly, there is no English environment in my school and class. Speak English only in the two English classes a week. At other times, I communicate with my family and friends in my mother tongue. As a result, there is not enough language environment, it is naturally very difficult to learn, for a nine-year-old child.
In such a difficult language environment with stumbling and rote memorization, I studied English until I graduated from university. After fifteen years of foreign language test-oriented education, my English proficiency has probably reached the level of high school students in English-speaking countries.
Now that I graduated from university, I am interested in Spain and other Latin American countries. I like Latin American football culture. I look forward to seeing my favorite players play on the spot one day. I look forward to learning this language by myself one day. If it takes 15 years to reach the intermediate level according to the way of learning English, I will be shocked.
Later, by coincidence, I learned a learning method, and my sky was bright ever since. That is the second language acquisition hypothesis of the famous language educator Stephen Krashen.
As the name suggests, this language acquisition hypothesis is to learn like a baby's mother tongue, rather than specifically learning a language like in a classroom. Because of this method, I came into contact with a language software on the recommendation of a friend. There are many authentic pronunciation videos of local people, and it is oriented to languages from all over the world. In it, you can learn any language you want to learn, such as KoreanChinese and Indonesian. Sincerely share with everyone：https://hibee.com/d/DqeLXVYN.ko?d=DqeLXVYN&u=RLq2eQYb
There is no need to learn grammar specifically, let alone rote memorization, just go directly to the context to experience an audio-visual feast~
In this way, I gradually became more comfortable with the acquisition of Spanish. Because of this learning hypothesis and language software, I feel addicted to self-learning a language all my life. The positive feedback it gives me makes me feel very emotional, oh god, this is the feeling of heart!
I hope everyone can enjoy the long river of language they like.
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:
Here’s also a short video tutorial on how to use it:
I hope you all find this helpful!
Do you learning Korean by watching K-drama?
I am currently conducting research on the effectiveness of learning by meaning-focus input and decontextualized learning strategies in learning Korean. I would like to hear from the Korean language learners about their views on learning Korean through watching Korean drama and learning by using word cards.
I would be grateful if you could fill out the survey! Help needed!

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!
