Hello,

If you are struggling with grammar, memorizing new words or other boring stuff while learning a language, I have found a great language learning platform to study 100+languages for free. It's called Bliu Bliu (https://bliubliu.com/)

Basically you read random content from the internet which was selected according to your level of competence. You press words that you already know and that’s how you "level up". No memorizing, no translations, you just figure out meanings like a baby from context. Also no grammar learning you just figure out it from context too.

You can add your own books there as well.

Another thing they are offering is 30days challenges where you talk with a native and get all info you need to improve. They have about 10ish different language challenges and they actually work! I was surprised to see my Japanese improve so fast and I could actually speak by the end of the month. this one: https://bliubliu.com/en/learning/challenge/learn-japanese-in-30-days-1/#video-102

I highly recommend it to busy people and for those who hate memorizing boring stuff, it's a lot of fun and not at all pricey.

It sounds a bit too good to be true. Is there a catch to using the site? Also, having no grammar learning sounds like it would be fun, but isn't learning the grammar an important part of learning any language? Still, this sounds like something worthwhile to check out. Especially during my escapade to soak up as much Spanish as possible before October.

Thanks for posting this, I need another way to practice my Korean.  Korean is still in Beta mode but the site looks good.  I don't think this would be great by itself but I think if you practiced with a grammar book and used it as a way to test yourself, it could be great for people studying on their own.

Thanks. I will try your website as well. Hopefully, I will be able to use it to my advantage. I will post a review here once I am done with the website as well, just so everyone knows how things went. Although, I have to say, I checked your website out and it wasn't easy for me to understand what easy or difficult meant when I tried to learn a language. But, other than that, it seems good. Let me check it out. Here's to learning better and faster! :)

This is a good resource for the people who want to practice the language they're learning, but not a good resource to learn. It's impossible to learn German without understanding their grammar rules. There are so many of them and some of them are pretty obscure, but if you don't understand them, the progress to master the language will be terribly slow.

      I'm an avid podcast listener and I love learning languages. However, it happened quite often to me that when I heard a good word or phrase through my favorite podcasts, I didn't have the time to grab my pen and write it down. This frustrated me a lot because those were usually good and useful words that I wanted to incorporate into my own learning. So one day while this happened to me again I felt enough was enough. I decided to make an app to solve this problem. 
      Fast forward a few months, PolyPro was born. I started to use it every day to improve my target languages (English & Swedish). A typical workflow for me looks like this:
      - Play my favorite podcast while I'm cooking, cleaning, etc
      - When I hear a good word or expression, I simply double-tap on my headphones to quickly save that conversation snippet into a short audio clip. Sometimes I save 1 or 2 clips for an episode, sometimes I might save 10 or 20!
      - Later when I have some time, I'll sit down and go through these audio clips. I can replay each audio clip to get familiar with the context. If the clip has a word that I want to dive deep into, I'll add a word to it, and it automatically links that new word to the audio clip, so that when I study it later I get to hear it in its original context. 
      This might sound like a rather unusual workflow, and I understand that it might not work for everyone, especially for those who have dedicated time to study. But for people like me who have little to no time for study after work, kids, and other countless family duties, this allows me to keep improving my languages without having dedicated study time. After all, learning to notice is the key to learning anything.

      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

      Hi
      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 
      J
