Hola, I just saw your blog posts and I really love your content. Never stop creating contents. Hope you have a lovely day! 🍂
What a kind of you. Thank you for supporting me🌻
I made a note for myself and also for my students, next morning. I’m teaching a group of notaries to prepare for their English tests. They’re planning to take the doctoral degree as soon as possible.
I’m so inspired by their high motivation to understand and speak English better. One of interesting reasons comes from a young lady who wants to teach her future kids to speak English, besides her education target. It’s such a sweet and sincere, I’d say.
And I keep telling everyone who learns English with me… that learning languages always opens the door where we can get into the world of make believe.
Don’t you think so?
Are you practicing your target language now?
Yup… tie your hair, grab your brunch then start gaming haha…
I like learning language through games, but not gamification. I mean, language learning apps such duolingo, drops, etc. could help me get used to my target language.
I read an article about habitual and repetitive learning, I feel it’s true since I experience it myself. Frankly, I don’t devote too much time on my language learning but I plan to do it everyday. Maybe 20-30 minutes is quite enough for me then I’ll choose different materials on each session. You know, I’m kinda easily getting bored of everything *lol ^^V
I’m practicing Spanish and Japanese by making them as habits. I speak in Spanish and Japanese in every opportunity (even when I’m talking to myself) and use any phrases that I’ve known in fit situations… like saying “buenas diás” to myself when I wake up. As simple as it is… or is it way too simple? Haha…
Do you make your target language as a habit, too?
How do you practicing?
Hi! Even it’s so late, I just wanna say Happy International Literacy Day!
Literacy opens the door to knowledge while languages unlock the gate to the world.
Well, learning languages has inspired me a lot. And I even recognised that human speaks not only by words, but also by the tones and colours. For me, music and colours are the resources of literacy, too.
How about you? Any book or something that got you hooked up?
Here’s my poem to celebrate International Literacy Day with you!
Disculpe, ¿habla un inglés?
Is it correct or not? When I wanna ask if someone speaks English or not, is it what I should ask?
While practicing a new target language as a beginner, I think it’d be helpful to know this phrase…
Anyone wants to share your first experience learning Spanish?
Buenas tardes 🌞
Yesterday I’ve watched a video resource telling about the differences between language learning and language acquisition and so why some methods don’t work for language learners.
It says we need meaningful resources as our input, whether it’s understandable or not at first. As instance, watching tv series in our target language using its subtitle then trying to figure out the message in our target language (without dictionary).
Besides that, from the meaningful resources we can also listen the natural speaks so we learn the pronunciation and how to speak naturally by imitating the speakers based on our level, maybe just one, two or three words at first, it’s all right.
I found it’s logical, as when we were a lil’ kids, we weren’t taught by many flash cards to learn the mother tongue. We learnt by listening and mimicking our mother language then we got the message by looking at the real world.
Thus, the important thing is we should look for the meaningful resources for our target language. Yup or Nah? Do you wanna share any ideas?
Tenga buen día! 🌻🌻🌻
¿Cómo te llamas?
Hola, me llamo Kinmi. Mucho gusto.
Hi #langblr and #studyblr 🤗
Recently, I started to learn Spanish. I’ve wanted to learn this language a long time ago…
We used to talk and ask
Yet, from now on… I think, I’m gonna share and talk with you in some different languages… Let’s learn more together!
What language are you up to right now?
Books & Links to guide your journey in learning Japanese language!
Note: Each set of books is for specific purpose.As a tip, it’s better to focus on one skill at a time. It’s recommended to work on grammar before focusing on learning kanji. With that in mind, here we go!:
If you’re unsure of which book to buy, this set is all you need.
The amount of time require to finish this set would be around 4 - 8
months. The dictionary is complimentary but so worth to have!
Japanese Conversation/Speaking skill
• Basic survival conversation & situation
–> this book teach basic survival grammar!
• Learn Japanese with conversation (shadowing technique)
>> Learn more about both books here
Another set to master basic Japanese grammar:
Note: It’s not effective to have a different set of similar book, just pick the set you like the most. If you like Genki better, get a genki set and so on~
If you ask our opinion, Genki is easier with a more detailed English explanation but explained from English point of view.
While minna no nihongo is a very immersive study book but will confuse and discourage some people.
Our recommendation Try set above is somewhere in the middle. It’s immersive but not to confusing and each grammar is explained from Japanese point of view~
Minna no nihongo
Hope this helps! Happy learning ｡ﾟ✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ﾉ.✶ฺﾟ｡
안녕하세요! I looked through differe resources of conjugating present korean verbs and I'm still a bit confused. My book presented verbs w an ending like: -자 , -고, etc; but i keep seeing endings like: -어(요) -어/아 요, etc. So do i add the ending -고 and then -어/아 요? I'm sorry if this is confusing.
Hello anon! I was kind of confused with what you’re asking, but now I understand so hopefully you understand, too!
I think it would really help if you checked out my conjugation blog. It will show you the most basic ways to conjugate. It would also be good if you check out my basic conjugation cheat sheet on my WordPress. I will make more conjugation endings on my blog soon, but in short:
-자 = let’s ‘X’
-고 = and ‘X’
For now, if you’re a beginner, just worry yourself with the basic conjugation and get that 100% down. Happy Learning :)
The name “Bayer” may be synonymous with Aspirin, but did you know that both Bayer and Aspirin come from Germany? The multinational pharmaceutical company was founded in 1863, but its trademark product, Aspirin, wasn’t developed until 1897. A team of scientists worked together to develop this drug, which today is used to treat everything from pain to fever to blood clots.
The active ingredient in Aspirin is Salicylic acid, which is derived from willow bark. The curative properties of salicylic acid had been documented well before aspirin hit the market, but the side effects – stomach pains and digestive problems – often outweighed the benefits of using the drug. The Bayer team altered the original compound to create acetylsalicylic acid, which had the same effects without the drawbacks. The common name for the drug, Aspirin, is derived from the German word for Salicylic Acid, Spirsäure. Acetylsalicylic acid became the bread and butter for Bayer, as it remains today. In 2014, the company posted 42 billion euros in sales!
