Learn Assorted Languages With Assorted Coldplayers


Recommended Posts

How hard a language is is a relative notion - for one thing, it depends on the mother tongue of the individual. I'd suppose that a person who knows Mandarin Chinese would find it less hard to learn Cantonese than would, for example, a person who speaks a romance language.

 

Do you speak Cantonese? :)

 

yeah its true ... i do speak cantonese and its my first language

So does mine =D But I switch it with Portuguese (which is my mother tongue) a lot.

 

I thought Cantonese was written with the same script used with Mandarin Chinese. I am terribly sorry!

 

@bubbleymonki How are your ASL classes going, btw?

awesome!.. haha yeah my cousins tend to switch with english and cantonese a lot when talking to the family.

 

ASL is so much fun! I love it and my professor makes it even more fun with his sense of humor. Everyday we're always laughing and smiling in this class, I'm going to miss this class. We had our first “interview” exam today that was one on one with the professor. I wasn't nervous until he turned on the video recorder! :stunned:

For those learning French (like me) here are some links I found useful:

. French dictionary: http://www.larousse.fr/dictionnaires/francais-monolingue

(not only is it helpful to find the meaning of some words but also it has a lot of information regarding grammar rules: expressions, difficulties, conjugations)

 

. Polar FLE: http://www.polarfle.com/

All my teachers are recommending it but I haven't really used it that much. They say it has a lot of exercises and good explanations.

 

. DELF/DALF: http://www.delfdalf.ch/index.php?id=84

For those who are interested in taking the DELF or DALF exams.

 

. I have recently discovered this facebook page, it has a lot of useful videos/pictures that are really helpful to learn some new words: https://www.facebook.com/FrenchPage

For example, the other day I was complaining about my lack of knowledge regarding animal names in French and a friend of mine showed me this video from that page:

Speaking of French: http://leconjugueur.lefigaro.fr/ - conjugation tables

 

----------

 

For those learning Chinese:

 

http://www.hanzigrids.com/ - Creates tables for students to practise word order (in conjonction with online dictionaries that provide flash animations with characters' stroke order); generates a pdf file; registration needed

 

http://www.chinese-tools.com/tools/pinyin-editor.html - useful to type diachritics of pinyin, specially third and first tones, which aren't available in avarage keyboards

 

http://www.archchinese.com/chinese_english_dictionary.html - online dictionary; provides animations of stroke order as well as pronunciation

 

http://translate.google.com.br/#zh-CN/zh-TW/ - Google translation tool; useful because you can type pinyin (without stroke order) and select ideograms; transform simplified characters in traditional ones (this specific link is for this purpose); provide sounds - specially useful when you type whole sentences
