Mandarin music? by hodeedo - Wed, 18 Jul 2012 18:30:15 EST ID:QpPIe/nL No.7196 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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.

Learning Japanese, tips on remembering Kanji besides radicals by イッカク - Thu, 28 Jan 2016 15:42:43 EST ID:6f3V80M0 No.12536 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Ayy everyone. I'm in the process of learning Japanese. Just recently finished up with learning how to read Hiragana on textfugu and I'm starting on Kanji soon, and also Katakana shortly thereafter. Textfugu does a great job of helping me memerize radicals and stuff, but are there any more ways I can improve my long term memory of Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana? I found a PDF file of over 1000 Kanji in it so that's definitely going to help out a ton. If nothing else, I'm sure textfugu will help out sufficiently. It's a pretty great website. I highly recommend it for people learning on their own.

>also I'm not a spokesperson for the website, just saying it's really really helpful

Anyone care to share their experiences with learning Japanese? Tips and/or advice are always welcome!

There's no way around it, I found I had to write them out over and over and over again until it becomes muscle memory and drilled into your mind. Starting with basic kanji you can make little stories in your mind about how the character has its meaning based on its image, but once you start to do more complicated ones you'll just have to do rote learning. It'll take a few years maybe but keep it up and you'll be fully literate in the language.

Does anyone here speak Pennsylvania German or have an interest in the language?

Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch is:
  • only a native language to certain groups of Americans and Canadians whose ancestors came from a specific region of Germany.
  • similar to some High / West German dialects, but also borrows lots of words from North American English.
  • almost completely a spoken language; Deitsch music and literature exist but even spelling can change from one author/artist to the next.

I find this language interesting even though it's only useful in highly specific situations and regions. I used to live in an area with a sizable Amish population and always thought the language sounded relaxing. Almost all the Amish past a certain age know English too, and even when talking with each other they sometimes use Deitsch and English interchangeably.

I'm using internet resources to learn some basic Deitsch. Maybe I'll be able to have a conversation with some Amish folks in their native language someday. Or at least I'll be able to tell what they're saying when they talk to each other.

Yes it is. I'm from central PA, and some of my older relatives used to speak it. It's ridiculously impractical and resources for learning it are likely super unreliable. If I were a linguistic anthropologist though, it would be an incredibly interesting thing to do a field-study on.

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.

I've been trying to teach myself Russian for about 6 months now. I figured I'd do it the same way I did spanish (finish rosetta stone, then read the news with the help of google translate, then watch movies I know well dubbed in it), but that hasn't worked out, either because the alphabet kind of slows things down or because it doesn't share as much vocabulary as English (thank you Roman Empire).

So I'm thinking I'll just brute force it with Pimsleur. Problem is, Pimsleur is boring as fuck. Is there anything I can do while Pimsleuring that can keep me from falling asleep without distracting me too much? Whoever can solve this problem wins a slice of Ukraine.

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?

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.

esperantists will often say their language is exactly like any other language. and it's true, it is. which means there are lots and lots of transphobic people, and lots and lots of people who are not transphobic. but the main difference between Esperanto and every other language is that if you are speaking Esperanto, it is probably by choice, or you have horrible parents. which means that the horribly draining arguments you are already having everywhere else don't actually need to seep up into your little made-up language. there's no point, you can just stop speaking it and focus on the parts of your life that actually matter.

with all that said, if you are a straight (or relatively well-off gay) white cis man with a lot of time on your hands, you will probably get a lot out of completely meaningless amusement out of Esperanto, and i am not trying to discourage anybody from playing with their model train sets.

Learn Esperanto if you want. I would focus on improving my English if I was thinking in terms of priority, but learning Esperanto will be fun for you and there are a lot of Esperanto clubs and things in the world so why not. It beats spending 10 hours a day playing warcraft or something, doesn't it? No one would dream of telling you you were wasting your time doing that.


> if you are a straight (or relatively well-off gay) white cis man with a lot of time on your hands,

You are going to meet assholes whatever you do, you shouldn't limit your activities to things where you will only meet nice people. This is 2016, people will get over the trans thing. I wish that was because people would become more tolerant and accepting, but it will be because science will conclusively prove to them that trans people's brains genuinely are of the gender they identify as. Then you can say "I told you so" in esperanto.

I really don't care if I ever use it. I want to learn a new, less common language.
Here are my stipulations:
It has to have an alphabet. It can't be like Chinese or Japanese where you learn 100s of symbols, stroke counts, and pronunciations.
I was looking at Tamil or Balinese, but I don't have a reliable source to learn either of them. Any suggestions?

Why not Tagalog? They're due for a rise at this rate anyhow.

Does anyone have a lot of trouble with the verbal aspect of learning a language? I'm learning German and trying to practice my Spanish (which I like to think I'm pretty good at) but when I try to engage in a conversation I can't understand anything.
I've been watching foreign films and listening to Spanish/German radio stations but that has barely helped. Any suggestions?

Yes, it's common to have trouble picking out all the words people say in a language that you mainly learned through a classroom or computer program. Native speakers of most languages will unconsciously talk at a speed that can make it hard for non-native speakers to understand.

Why not Burmese? Short alphabet, easy pronunciation, country (due to finally having free elections/opening up) is poised to become an incredibly strong economy over the next little while (provided the society begins to sort it's corruption)

The people are amazingly kind, also considered to be the most formally Theravada country in the world, it's an amazing place.
