It's gonna depend on the country really op.
I teach in Myanmar and it's great, children and adults are enthusiastic about learning, because of the culture here. It's also rare for schools to be dicks to foreigners because of supply and demand.

Salary is about $1000-$2000/month can be more (if you work for an international school it's more).

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.

Indeed, it is horrendously boring.
"Now say, what time is it?"

Languages take years to "master". You need lots of exposure to hear all the individual syllables and then finding the meaning is like surfing on 56k internet again.

I recommend pimsleur in small doses. Mix up your learning with some authentic materials. Play video games in that language, they are like a tests; you don't listen/respond, you fail/die. Find a rosetta stone torrent, which isn't authentic but has some interactive components. Find friends who speak it, or join bilingual forums. Languages are rooted with culture, which is rooted in the social element of being human.

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?

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.

Esperantoland is like most places: everyone claims not to be transphobic, and whenever actual incidents of transphobia happen, everyone says "oh but we're totally not transphobic though!" Most people, including Esperantists, would rather claim not to be transphobic than actually address transphobia within their communities. However, in this particular case, it's not even something that actually matters. It's just a made-up language. So for most people who aren't bros, they get frustrated and leave eventually... unless they're one of the ridiculously naive people who actually thinks it will be an international language some day.

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.

A lot of older country folk you hear with thick accents . my shitty racist father thinks he does a good impression. for real, though, some times you hear an old timer say something really dutchie and you just wanna be like "fuck dude you are trying too hard"

i think a lot of older pennsylvanias with pennsylvania dutch heritage idealize their ancestors way of life and are clinging to what are probably the last vestiges of the language

That's wonderful. It reminds me of when Southern rednecks really overdo the drawl to sound more patriotic to their homeland. I never lived near the main Pennsylvania Dutch area of PA so I never got the chance to hear a non-Amish person speak it.

I wouldn't be surprised if, after the middle of this century, most of the "progressive" Amish and similar groups have all but switched to English for both public and family matters. I have a powerful attraction to dying languages of the U.S. and wouldn't mind keeping it alive for no practical reason.

One last thought: Deitsch sounds much more subdued and "rounded" than standard German, and the inflection/accent seems to have more in common with American English than with standard German. I also love how calmly and quietly it's spoken compared to English.

I believe so. I've barely done any learning on this language since creating the thread though.

Random observation: Last week I was with a couple Amish guys and noticed that they preferred the English words for prices and numbers, even when the rest of the conversation was in Deitsch.

The differences are deeper tha you seem to suggest. The U.S. is in no way homogeneous linguistically (Neither is Australia in my experience, I've worked with Aussies of greatly varying accents).

In Philadelphia people can distinguish accents from different parts of the city. The diversity of influences from languages other than english has a profound impact on vocabulary as well. There are numerous southern and appalachian dialects which many other americans find unintelligible. I've met tons of people who are speaking english as their first and only language that are barely comprehensible.


There's an interesting documentary on New Orleans diversity of dialectical differences called "Yeah You Rite". I wish I could find the whole thing.

Here's a clip from the documentary I'm talking about. Nearly everyone speaking is native to new orleans

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPGPz2HkNPo&index=3&list=PL8CCF79456A07B53E

Fun Fact: The broad talking at 5:30 sounds almost indistinguishable from my mom's friends from south-center Philly. But my mom from North Philly speaks noticeably different (though still similar)

I'd just like to interject for a moment

What you are referring to an "anglophone" is exactly anyone who speaks English regardless of whether they are native speakers or not. As the term is of French origin, the usage must be the same as "francophone" which is used for French all speakers. Please use the term non-native speaker as it is more accurate

Thank you

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.

Try reading Japanese text such as manga in which you don't know all the kanji. Every time you find a kanji you don't remember/know, look it up and make sure you know: its meaning, how it's read, and the stroke order for writing it. It may take you a while but I think it might possibly be more effective than just studying flash card type lists as there's context to help you remember it when you read it (the story, etc.).

>I found a PDF file of over 1000 Kanji in it so that's definitely going to help out a ton
if you're not willing to learn at least 2000 Kanji, it makes no sense to even start.

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.

I haven't started with it at all yet but I just ordered Spoken Lebanese by Maksoud Feghali. There's audio files for it available online too.
