does anyone have a motherfucking PDF of motherfucking Al-Kitaab Part 2, in fucking THIRD EDITION? second edition is fucking shit; only teaches you some fusha and egyptian, but I want to fucking learn motherfucking Levantine if such a thing is possible. Also third edition in general is far less of a clusterfuck and seems to be an actual legit language course. I know these PDFs must exist, because I've seen the book in the language section of bookshops for a few years now - only they're so fucking expensive. And I can't fucking find the PDF except for second edition. And if second edition is this bad, then fuck, pity upon those poor souls who were forced to learn Arabic with motherfucking first edition Al-Kitaab. Just, fuck.

Alternatively if such a thing is not possible I'll fucking take any decent levantine arabic textbook, bonus points for audio, that's gone any kind of way into helping any of you comrades here into learning the colloquial dialect of Lebanon in particular. Or, fuck, even some Syrian or Lebanese television series (with optional English subtitles) if such a thing exists. Fusha is easy enough, but aside from Egyptian it seems it's quite a fucking mission to learn any Arab dialect.

All the best of things and stuff to you, etc, etc, if anyone can help then fuuuucking fucking thank you.

So, you're in a room with all people who speak Portuguese and English, but you only speak English. You're an outsider to the group, just dropping in. Someone's about to speak, and asks, "Everyone speaks Portuguese here, right?" clearly preferring to speak Portuguese.

Do you pipe up to have him speak English so you understand or sit there staring at your phone for the 15 minutes he's talking?

If it's a one time meeting definitely just ask them to speak English for you. If this is a group you're a part of, ask them to speak English for now, but make a serious effort to learn some Portuguese if that's the first language of everyone in the group.

I require music in Chinese. MANDARIN please for the love of God. I find most Canto music is better, but Canto is not what I'm learning :/ Preferably not pop music, its all I ever seem to be able to find.

Is there anything more new-wavey, like Neon Indian, or alternative? Lo-fi beach pop like The Raveonettes or Best Coast, rap, whatever, just.. nothing that's going to remind me of N*SYNC plz.

Is this kind of like asking for good movies from China? Not happening?

I saw someone posted ChaCha earlier (well, in 2013), you guys shoud check out the work she does with dutch producer Jay Soul. As a duo they are called AM444 and make brilliant music. I don;t know what genre to call them, they are kind of funky electronic and sometimes sound wonderfully weird and beautiful. I'll post some of my favs.

I find myself constructing a sentence in my mind and afterwards looking up definitions for a word or two after i think / type it.......just to make sure it makes sense. I hear these words and they just sound right from the same gut feeling.

I often use words that I dont know the exact definition of but i know what they mean.
I guess i have heard them so many times; understanding context i use them on my own.

As a nitpicker, I often do that too. Alcohol makes me care less whether I use words 100% correctly, but when I go back and read drunk writing later there are usually more mistakes than normal. My first instinct isn't always right.

Dag idereeen

Wie leert Nederlands? Ja, ik weet het wel dat het een onbelangrijke taal is, gesproken in een piepklein streek bij de noordzee (inb4 ook Surniame, en de ABC eilanden). Ook bijna idereen heeft een opmerkelijke kennis van Engels. Toch mijn vriendin is nederlandstalig en daarom heb ik de taal geleerd. Nu we wonen samen in Belgie, een steenworp op Brussel.

Kan iemand goede nederlandstalige boeken en filmen voorstellen AUB? Ik heb Zwartboek, Oorlogwinter, en Loft al gezien.

Hey guys, been trying for hours to get this game to install in english, but it keeps installing in what looks like russian. Used all my data for the month to have some nostalgia, but been aimlessley clicking around trying to find options in the game itself to switch to english, but I think the english option must be in the install.
Can someone please help me by reading screens for me?
You'd literally make my month. ;-;
I'll chuck up a few screens and if you could let me know what any of the 'highlighed' bits are that'd be amazing.

Pick one. Stick with it.
Then learn another non-Romance language and master it too.
Afterwards, learn a different Romance language.
Unless you speak a Romance language as your first language, you will get them confused.

I learned Spanish first (to a C1 level) and now I am learning portuguese. I am not having any problems with forgettnig Spanish because it feels like a part of me now. I lived in Catalonia while I was learning Spanish and I saw that people who tried to learn Catalan and Spanish at the same time got super confused. Our teacher said to learn one to an advanced level and then switch.

Learning Portuguese is easy once you are fluent in Spanish, learning them both at the same time would make both of them harder.

Do Germans ever say Kaiser to refer to their boss? Would that be a normal thing for Germans to do, the same way in English you might say the Chief or the Guvnor to refer to your manager?

Another cognate is the Persian " قصر" /qAsehr/ which means palace, and was used archaically to refer a seat of power or the person(s) who occupied it. These cognates are hypothesized to be linked by Proto-Indo-Aryan. As a Spanish-speaker who studies both German and Persian, the surprising number of links between European and Central Asian languages are sources of endless fascination
