sup dude

BBC have free English courses, 30 units, looks like you can maybe start at upper intermediate but your spelling is beginner so perhaps you should start at intermediate instead.

Hello /lang/.

I work in big company in IT department. Most of the time I communicate in english language and I consider myself to be ok at it, however when trying to read for instance this chan it bugs me a lot to read all these complex sentences. I understand them but I have to put lot of effort to go through the text from the begging to the end. Sometimes I find myself reading it couple of times before I finish.

Seems its more complex language than it is at work

Any tips on that?

tl;dr got easily exhausted by reading complex sentences in english, have to put lot more effort to read them in order to understand, how to get over it

You have to just keep reading until it starts sticking. Learning to read again is what you have to do for languages, I’m learning Japanese and I’m in the same boat. It’s fucking hard but it’s fun for me at least.

If you want to improve the speed at which you can understand written English, try reading some English fiction targeted towards younger people.
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1606.top_100_middle_school_must_reads
Make sure you're able to summarize everything that is happening. Look up words and grammatical structures that you don't understand along the way. Getting better command and understanding of a language really is just constant exposure to it.

Also as >>13118 said, if you're in an environment such as an imageboard then sentences might become more confusing. This is because people are usually just typing without giving much thought to sentence structure, grammar, etc. I'm guilty of just typing shit sometimes and not really reading it back over to see if it actually makes sense. Don't stress over it too much.

Look, op, I'm fluent in Thai (which is closely related) and speak a little Lao, but that romanized shit isn't helping much. I can tell you that Pa could possibly be "fish", but it could also be 'uncle' or 'wilderness or some other things too. "Son" could be like a dozen different things, seriously. "Pate" is probably just French "pate" as in fish paste, left over from the French. Southeast Asian languages don't romanize well. Give me a youtube clip or some context and I'll try to help you.

It translates to sex cliffs, and references being on the edge of actually having sex. It makes sense with the conversation Hank and khan were having about second base.

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?

I think you learn a language by using it, so why don't you start transcribing one or two words of a Spanish novel every day, read out loud as you write. Other than that I don't know, build vocabulary with flashcards or reading the news.

I've been studying for something like 9 years now off and on. Kanji is pretty cool and knowing some of the history can be pretty fun too. I'd recommend reading "World of Kanji" if you're into that stuff.

Just keep at it. When it starts getting stale try and break it up with new methods of study or just entertainment. I'm at the level now where I can read raw manga, only occasionally having to look up words. It's really rewarding. You'll get there!

Ja, ich spreche ein bissen Deutsch.

Simple stuff for now, basic phrases later. Das ist gut. Have german far back in my family tree and I just can't do the heroes in Media so I always play Germany (better fashion sense anyhow).

Learning a bit of Russian for the same reason.

Want to try my English-phonetic set fodder at Mandarin Chinese casually as well. Perhaps some simple Japanese phrases, too.

Gomenasai, hombre. I recommend Microsoft Translator (bing) to assist. It seems to be worlds better than Google.

This thread is for criticizing and critiquing all the different writing systems from around the world. For instance:

>Thai Language
Okay, listen. I have no problem with little circles. I actually sort of like seeing alphabets that use little circles. But there is a point where it needs to stop and you've clearly crossed it long ago, Thailand. I don't know who told you it was a home idea to incorporate little circles into literally almost every single letter in your writing system, but they were lying to you. perhaps your mind has been clouded due to an excess of pad thai and ladyboys, but that is simply no excuse.

I am a native English speaker.

I can speak and read in Italian but not write because I never practice the spellings.
Through Italian I can understand a huge amount of Spanish but sadly mainly answer back in Italian.
Same goes for Portugese.
I can speak and read a bit of german but understand more than I can speak.

Additionally I learn Spanish in school. Languages I want to learn but haven't really started yet because I don't think it's good to learn this many at once are Norwegian, Latin, French, Finnish, Russian & maybe also Chinese & Korean

Greetings, peoples of 420chan.

I would like to invite you to read this blog I maintain, a blog about how you can teach yourself Chinese Mandarin. I have always thought people shied away from Asian languages like Chinese because they seemed to difficult and complex. So I have decided to create a blog to demystify it so everyone understood how Chinese works, what they are getting themselves into and what kind of expectations they should have when getting into it. If you are interested in Chinese Mandarin, but don't know how to actually learn and study it, I invited you to read my blog. It's the first post, a bit lengthy, but very complete.

https://teachyourselfmandarin.wordpress.com

Thank you very much and make a good use of it.
