I'm learning like ten languages in Duolinguo, between the app and the website I spend a few hours a day at it intermittently and it's getting really easy to get good at speaking a lot of languages.

Anhybody have tips or other languages for learning massive amounts of vocab and grammer?

  1. learn to actually think in that language and practice conversation with yourself mentally and vocally.

2. Create or find a necessity of using the new language

3. Vocab and grammar are important, but not as important as learning pronounciation and inflection

4. Use media to your advantage (TV is especially good, as it trains you to listen to and understand the language in spoken form. Get a sat dish if you want, they're not too hard to install)

5. practice, practice, practice... for life

This was how I went from beginner to fluent English speaker within a few months when I had to move to Australia as a kid.
Point 2 was already in place, as I could only speak rudimentary English at the time I arrived in the country
My initial preparation at the time was actually to watch cartoons on satellite channels at the time, no subtitles meant no cheating. In fact, I owe the classic Cartoon Network cartoon lineup a huge debt of gratitude for teaching me to understand English.
Point 3 and 1 come across when you get to talk to native speakers and get to wield the language properly.

Adding another one to Norwegian:
"Snut er ut"
Snut meaning "snout", referring to the snout of a pig. "ut" meaning out, "er" meaning is. "purk" or "purken" is also a common way to refer to cops. a "purke" is a female pig.

Snut snut kaffegrut
Cops cops coffee-grounds (the nasty black shit you don't want to drink)
Purk purk sur agurk

Hey guys,

I would truly love to learn Chinese and think a good starting point for me would be to learn tones and the Pinyin alphabet.

I've stumbled upon material that did look professional, yet upon closer inspection some mistakes were present (pointed out by native speakers).

So that's basically why I'm asking you guys for sources you known to be reliable, where the pronunciation is spot on and where the teaching is hopefully dynamic and not too boring.

I will have the opportunity to ask for help from a native speaker now and again but she won't be there 24/7 for me. She will mostly review what I learned on my own and correct me afterwards.

Any other advice about learning Chinese is welcome as well. I am really eager to begin, I'm just not sure where to look.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Pinyin is good at first, but later when you start speaking and listening faster, people say words and you have to just know the tones to deduce what theyre saying. Ive been studying chinese for about 9 months now and i had help from several native speakers, including one of my best friends and two girlfriends between the time i started and now. Im going to china for the first time this summer, but i like to consider myself at least a little experienced because i go to a school with a lot of FOBs. All of my teachers have also been pretty much FOBs who go to china regularly. The best way i can tell you to start is to buy a textbook and study on your own and i mean FUCKING STUDY. I needed to learn all of chinese 1 (普通话) in about 2 1/2 weeks in order to transfer on time to chinese 2, and i was waking up at 8, studying at 9 am, and continuing until 2ish with one meal in between and one 15 minute break to socialize. Tones are hard to grasp at first, but practicing speaking everything you learn will make it instinctual. You dont think about the yones after awhile they jusy come to you. Good luck🤙.

So it's me, the person who made this post >>12878
Just want to kinda redact what I said somewhat.
>There is very little room for error on tone, and people will not use context to deduce your intended meaning.
>This is exactly what I've heard. It's spelled similar in pinyin but the Chinese won't work out what you mean if the tone is off.
That was what I heard, but actually people can understand you if you get the tones off, obviously they are important but it's not as severe as I or that poster made out.

In terms for people saying Pinyin is bullshit, by all means go straight into characters and start learning them right away, but to put it simply you're going to NEED Pinyin in the beginning. All of the dictionaries use it and you're just making a monumental task even more difficult if you try and learn chinese without it.

And for what it's worth, chinese childrens books usually contain the pinyin below the characters, so it is something that is known here.

Putting it out there that pimsleur is great too, if you want to torrent those.

Native spanish speaker here... that's atrocious and the first time I've read caribbean spanish (dropping every consonant possible, mixing genders and code switching whenever). I wish we could call caribbean spanish a dialect, that way I can disregard everything my brain is currently cataloguing as a near illiterate level mistake.

btw it's barely intelligible, half the time I struggle to understand wtf they're saying. it's easier to understand argentinians and nearby cultures because even though they deviate quite a lot from standard spanish their variety is actually pretty systematic and they write the way they speak always using standard spanish grammatical rules.

BUT going back to the subject immersion is usually a very good idea, for any language.

The rules of grammar are easily ripped from wikipedia. Vocab is easier, stupid fucking Duolingo is good for that and only that.

Unfortunately, the Deustch chanosphere is fucked right now so you can't brush up with shitposting so well. The helmut kohl imageboard is your best shot for that.

Luckily, it's such an important language that even youtube shit is reliable enough. A lot of people know this language and well enough to relay that info. So you can jump into any video series on that site and trust what you're being told.

I'm looking for a synonym of 'get' which implies that the object or action is received unintentionally, or that it's undesired. Does such a verb exist in English? Yes, I checked the thesaurus, but I didn't find anything that satisfied me.

The closest word I can think of is 'take' as in, "The car really took a beating this winter." But it just doesn't usually work outside of idioms like 'take a beating/licking'.

Depends on the object received.

There's no word that specifically contrasts "get" with "get unintentionally" as in some prefixing languages.

cost are incurred
beatings are suffered
gifts are received
hits are delivered

Strictly speaking, received is just the French parallel of Saxon get. They're still almost entirely interchangeable although gotten is rarer in the passive voice than received.

isn't get the one that implies it's unintentional or undesired? take is the one that makes it seem intended and using it ironically implies the lack of intent. is there some word parallel like this in some other language that you're trying to match in english?

I'm out in Murka. I'll see if there's any web-based versions of that kind of programming. A lot of stations over here do that.

savegaelic.org looks like it has a lot of stuff that I'll be able to use. Thanks for the recommendations, this will be a huge help to me. I was going off of Wikipedia before this, oddly enough it wasn't working out lol.

By fucky I meant weird and uncertain. A lot of the things I've looked into were crazy expensive, of dubious nature, or just plain innaccurate. Like the Irish Gaelic duolingo course, kinda muddles in some Scottish and Manx but the grammar structure isn't right and the cases are a mess. And there's so many different courses on youtube, of varying levels of completeness. It throws doubt over the whole thing.

Yeah, interlingual wordplay doesn't go so hot, I guess. I once made a joke about how the Mongols were able to conquer so much territory because they all had one goal, they were a mono-goal kind of people.

I believe the Roma I knew explained it as being his language's version of "George," but I thought "George" was an Anglicization of "Gregorios" from Greek.
