Exactly what i needed during this pandemic period. Atleast i will learning something new. I started with learning the guitar, next on my list is Piano, French and Spanish. The two seems to be covered well here. Am even considering learning Piano in French
Try watching videos on pronunciation. They will show you how you should roll your tongue and how you should adjust your vocals. The sounds come from different positions in your vocal chord/box. So you need to master that. Most important is practice. You will need to practice very much in small progressive chunks.
What is the right age for introducing a new language to a kid?
This sounds great. I wouldn't mind learning sign language. This looks like a well designed training.
Great. Thanks buddy. How is your Spanish progress now? It is the next language on my list after French.
This is a great tip. I will try that out. I have been doing it randomly without tracking the number of words am studying at any one time.
@josephyaghi This is very good detailed info. Thanks for sharing. Gives me more reason to study french in depth.
I may not be actively learning in the next two weeks due to personal issues.
Will this affect my progress?
If find it easy studying language by listening to music. Is it an effective way of learning?
I think the beats behind the music just stimulates me to learn while having fun at the same time.
Languages such as German or Russian have declensions. However my native language does not have these declensions and so i have trouble understanding the main points in some sentences.
What techniques can i use to understand the role of declensions and to gain the right intuition to use them when necessary?
I have noticed that Spanish and French are linguistically similar. I started with learning French. Am now getting to study the basics of Spanish. The similarity in the two is what made me opt to study them simultaneously.
Now the challenge is maintaining the fluency in French but still getting a chance to learn Spanish.
How do you strike a balance?
