Estoy idiota y elegí el japones.
Está... ¿bien? Uso y está lentamente, pero no lo paso... ya.
Lo Comencé el 9 de Mayo, y he aprendido que es necesario aprender SOLAMENTE. Mi herrmano no se calla, especialmente cuando él está trabajando.

Ya aprendí el español, pero, enfoque sobre el japones actualmente. Duo llora. (¡Buhó de mierda!)

No puedo conversar en japones ya, pero, conversaré cuando pueda.

(A mi parece que debo a tutear a veces. ¿Tal vez una vez por semana?)

I'm a computer science PhD student who likes to learn about all kinds of languages during his free time.

For the past year and a half, I've been studying mainly.
I'm a french native speaker, and as a part of my effort to learn finnish, I've been translating the wonderful website to french here :

I also like musical theory and talking about environmental/energy/economical issues.

See you in the fediverse 🙂

hello! i'm an aspiring polyglot. i'm learning toki pona & japanese.

first, i picked toki pona because it seems fun and relatively easy. second, i'm learning japanese because of my heritage and even though i don't know practically any of it, it's the language i know most by default.

Ayer, alcancé una sucesión de 30 días de estudiar el español (no consecutivo) este año . ¡Estoy orgullose, golpeo la depresión del año pasado y más!

Quiero festejar este logro con comenzar un nuevo idioma, tal vez coreano o LSA (otra sugerencias están bien) porque estoy en buen lugar últimamente.

¿Que le parece? ¿Estoy arrogante?

Recomencé mis estudios del español la semana pasada.

Simplemente estudio al menos dos veces por semana. Uso anki o Duolingo (¡pinche búho de mierda!). Bien hasta ahora.

Buenas Noticias: Tengo planes de recomenzando mis estudios del español este marzo

Sorry that I haven't been on here lately. It turns out language learning when you're depressed / in the time of covid when time seems meaningless, REALLY SUCKS.

I'm trying to relearn my love of Spanish right now.

Scary thought.

What if that group of people who used てめ on Japanese Daytime TV write books on learning Japanese???

I'd like to believe you have to demonstrate proficiency, maybe whip out your N1 or N2 certification, but you never know, right???? 🤔

Charlie Brown / Peanuts localizations 

What does Marcy call Peppermint Patty in other languages?

Is their relationship super gay or just ambiguously gay?

Another thing I'd like to add: Foreign languages were not required at my school even though you could not get into pretty much any school without them. I'm not talking Stanford. I'm talking the local state school. The private catholic college would take you I think, but if they didn't offer you scholarships you would have paid out the ass.

Correction: i dug into my memory: you are strongly advised to take a language because you CAN get into a state school without one, it's just really hard.

I mean don't get me wrong, I am grateful to you mr owl. But I think you're showing us a bigger problem and putting a positive spin on it, like those stories that try to be feel-good about crowdfunding healthcare.

Dear :
When you bring out a fact on the loading screen like "more Americans are learning a foreign language on Duolingo than in the US school system"

That doesn't make me go: "😍 yay duolingo!"

That makes me go "😱 our school system is fucked up! "

Not to mention you didn't say if they were competently learning a language. I took Spanish a bunch in k-12 and I learned... 1-10 and the basic colors. By which I mean I wasn't pronouncing them right either.

Plz stop with downer facts

🚨 "cacaposteo" = "shitpost"
Cacapostear = " to shitpost" 🚨


Estaba ocupada, o yo cacaposteara.

Gracias @JordiGH por decirme.


Pro tip for US residents:

Spices marketed in spanish tend to be cheaper. I'm not saying you have to go to a special market, one of my local grocery stores stocks hispanohablante spices in the "international" section.

1. Learn your spice names.
2. Bring a dictionary

If you're doing this in the supermarket, your cashier will be awed at you buying powdered ajo not knowing it's garlic. 😏 (true story)

Psst: it's a much cheaper way to get azafrán for your paella.

Scary thought.

Also, if anyone knows Resources on being nonbinary in . I'm giving myself 20 days to try the language (and then I will let myself quit if I don't like it) but if I don't know how to be nonbinary*, I don't know if I will want to continue studying it!

* You know how foreign languages make you express your personality different? I feel more comfortable being enby in non-English languages. I suppose this could be a part of myself that's changing and soon I'll be they/them pronouns only.

@ira_pace hi! How are you?

If you don't mind, could you make an introduction post so I know a bit about you (and what languages to use)?

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?

Si puedes, publiques un aporte de introducción entonces nos conocemos (o si sabes el español)?

Resources on learning (MS) welcome. I'm willing to pay a bit of money as long as:
1. It's not a subscription
2. I don't have to get it on Amazon.

I'm trying to learn the alphabet right now and while I managed my first day with an alphabet deck on anki, is seemingly more helpful.

I plan to try mango languages this week or the next.
