it says something about how much dutch people speak english when in the iphone’s dutch keyboard the autocorrect setting works in both dutch and english
imagine consistenly studying your target lang😳
could never be me😳✌️
Anyone have any tips for learning a language quickly?
What I’m already doing:
-using language learning apps
-listening to music in that language
-listening to podcasts in that language
-listening to that language in general
-using class textbooks for said language along with audio tapes with native speakers
-dedicating 3-5 hours a day to studying
-reading/writing and having someone who took language classes review my work
Idk I feel like what I’m doing is enough (at least until I go to the country and get some actual irl experience) but should I pay to talk to native speakers online? Should I make flashcards? Are there special memory techniques I can use?
A Blossey Bitch Exclusive™: Griffin Dunne in an Italian men’s fashion magazine, PER LUI, in April 1986. The article was written by Manuela Cerri Goren. Apparently, my studies of French and Spanish have only taken me so far with Italian. I can understand the article here and there, but definitely couldn’t give a decent translation. If my understanding of Italian is correct, the photos were taken by Tony Viramontes.
Whatever, I’ll post the article in its original Italian soon.
I started with this completely new language for me less than a year ago. Few days ago I got the B1 level certificate. I continue working hard to get fluent in it. I hope that by summer I will get there.

That multilingual shit when you’re trying to write something but every sentence comes in a different languge or worse, you keep switching languages in the same sentence.
I just want to discribe the life of a small developing village, why do I need to have 5 tabs opened with 1 dictionary in hand to try and get a translation as close as possible for a word that is perfect to discribe something but does not exist in the language I’m writing in
I think I’m better off posting design and artwork on portfolio networking sites like Behance, Dribbble, or anything one can think of, or even here because some of my stuff would contain foreign language lettering quotes in approximately seven languages and people, mostly males, can easily troll me if I have my own portfolio website, post on Instagram, Facebook, or even Twitter, knowing how sexist people are towards multilingual girls and women, especially online.
Here is another request from you guys answered! :)
I honestly love doing these! So if you have any questions or requests, just let me know :)

Fans of the Romance Languages will certainly benefit from watching this video. It compares all the major Romance languages and examines their degree of separation from their common ancestor, Latin. I wasn’t surprised to learn that Italian is only 12% from Latin, but I was astonished to learn that French has the highest degree of separation from Latin: 44%.
This changes my pre-conception that I would be better at Latin through learning French. Evidently, I must go back to the ancient tongue itself. I also noticed that French didn’t necessarily help me understand the other Romance languages, because of the accents and the speed at which these native speakers were speaking. I found Portguese incredibly difficult to understand at all, and could only snatch pieces of Spanish, Catalan, and Italian.
I didn’t understand a word of Romanian. Many people in the comments’ section have pointed out that while Romanians can understand many other Romance languages, speakers of those other languages often do not understand Romanian. I can personally attest to this, as the father of my English student said he found languages with a Latin background easy to understand and had learned Italian very quickly.
This video has demonstrated the large holes in my knowledge, even though I understood almost all of the French video. Time to do some more study, then!

Anyone who aims to improve their French this year can profit from this video, in which Laura Maliszewska lays out her structured goals and implementation plans for improving her French. She is a native Pole, who is fluent in English (to degree level) and understands at least 5 other languages besides. Advancing in French has been her goal for a while now, and she has a far more organised method for improving than I do, to be quite honest. Great video.
hey langblr this year I want to start taking learning new languages more seriously
Right now I really want to learn Spanish as a priority, after I have a firm grip on that, I’d like to learn at least basic Japanese
Any tips, apps, and other things (like books) that may be useful?
I am currently using Duolingo again after a few years but I still want to do more
The thing about being multiethnic and multilingual (speaking for experiences in the US) is that people think that I either speak the languages of my ethnic background or that I am the ethnic background of the languages I speak.
The thing about studying in a multilingual country is that your reading materials are in many languages. And it’s a huge pain in the ass for me right now because I have the information but now I need to sort through everything and translate/add-on my outdated information in a different language.
Curse you, midterms.

I asked my family this question earlier and I’m getting some really interesting answers so I figured I would ask on here too.
To any multilingual speakers: do you feel like you’re personality changes at all when you’re speaking in one language versus another? Why or why not?
There are a couple of other questions that might go along with that. Like, do you feel like you’re functioning within different cultural frameworks and these different cultures affect your personality? Do you feel like you’re projecting a fake persona when you’re speaking in the language(s) you’re less fluent in? Do you feel like you’re actually a different person or are you presenting different sides of your identity when using different languages?
