This idiot is obviously tricking you, probably coming from long-lost brazilian boards.

Fuck the police = Foda-se a polícia.
Smoke weed every day = Fumar um todo dia (infinitive) / fume um todo dia (imperative).
Smoke more, chill out = Dá mais um dois, relaxa.

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.

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

Bueno, tengo pregunta. Cuando estudiaba espanol en la uni use una vez un sitio de web en que puedes pagar un poco para conversar con un hablante de uno de varios idiomas que fue entrenado por la compania. Ya no me acuerdo el nombre del sitio y estoy curioso de que si alguien aqui lo sabe. La suerte no parece buena en esto pero espero que alguien sabe de que hablo.

Yo comence de aprender espanol en la prepa (this is the best term for high school afaik) en una escuela militar Tejano. Estaba alli solomente un ano, regrese a Iowa y tome tres anos mas. Tambien fui de vacaciones a Mexico DF, Acapulco, Costa Rica, y de un lado de la frontera al otro muchas veces. La escuela militar esta en Harlingen, mis abuelos viven en McAllen ochenta porciento del ano, y mi madre era maestra en Reynosa mas que un ano. Hace un mes desde se caso con un migro. El esposo de mi madre ha vivido en Iowa quince anos, pero ya hablo espanol mucho mejor que el puede hablar ingles!!! Quizas me gustaria vivir en Costa Rica algun dia. Yo se que hablo espanol roto, pero es necesario usar esfuerzo y hacer errores para aprender y conservar lo que se aprende en la prepa. Mis primos tomeron cuatro anos tambien, pero sus habilidades son mas o menos inutil.

Korean or Japanese? by Phineas Turveyshaw - Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:01:36 EST ID:0kXH7cdY No.12368 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I'm looking for some opinions, on which language to start learning as I want to permanently move to either country. Being quite into Korean cinema and history, I started reading up on which of the languages was easier to learn, and managed to learn Hangul relatively quickly (although useless without vocabulary and grammar). However, I've done that thing where you go onto YouTube and see videos of Tokyo and have this romanticised Western idea of what it'd be like to live there, so now I'm stuck thinking "I don't want to end up learning Korean, go to Korea and Japan, and wish I had spent the time learning Japanese". I know that's a little naive, but it's a concern nonetheless.

Opinions from anyone who has lived in either or preferably both? I've also heard it's at least somewhat easier to learn Japanese once you've learned Korean, as there are few but some similarities so that may also be an option. But I'm struggling to perfect my current second language so the thought of managing four is daunting.

If you know more about one than the other and feel torn, I'd go with the one you know more about. While there may not be much in common linguistically speaking, there will be skills you'll pick up for learning languages that will transfer to learning any language.

Instead of thinking "Do I want to learn Japanese or Korean?" think, "Do I want to learn Japanese or Korean first?"

It sounds like the answer is Korean.

i haven't lived in either place, but i studied japanese for 4 years in high school and korean for 3 years for work. they are pretty similar and having a foundational knowledge of japanese certainly helped in retaining korean. i think it would work vice versa as well, if you learned korean first. (e.g. "kodunghakkyo" vs "koutougakkou", "segye" vs "sekai", etc)

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?
