2017-12-13 16:50:47 UTC

I actually know Mandarin Chinese, so if you happen to be learning that, ask me anything

2017-12-13 16:55:49 UTC

Gracias para la correccion

2017-12-13 18:21:34 UTC

My grammar needs help but I think that’s closer

2017-12-13 18:21:51 UTC

Creo que tuvimos un miembro que vivió en Argentina cuando era niño.

2017-12-13 18:21:55 UTC

Yeah I think using the infinitive of estar is the right choice.

2017-12-13 18:22:02 UTC

When in doubt, throw in a “que” lol

2017-12-13 18:22:52 UTC

vivo en estados unidos para viente tres anos. Hablaba espanol para uno ano.

2017-12-13 18:23:33 UTC

Spanish is probably my best language, but I feel guilty for promoting it now

2017-12-13 18:23:40 UTC

In the states at least

2017-12-13 18:23:55 UTC

Well I have a spanish final tomorrow. I might be askign you guys for helps during my review session.

2017-12-13 18:24:02 UTC

Right now I am reviewing Biology ftw.

2017-12-13 18:33:44 UTC

I can speak little swedish so if anyone wants to know basic sentences and phrases I can show you how to yell at muhammad if you go to sweden

2017-12-13 18:37:02 UTC

I lived in Mexico for one year. Was raised by illegals for 3 fluent in Spanish speak, read, and write. Let me know if I can be of assistance

2017-12-13 18:38:12 UTC

But they have to go back

2017-12-13 19:11:18 UTC

I speak bits and pieces of German and Italian, and I'm going to be learning Latin to fluency starting in January so I'd be more than happy to share resources and lessons with anyone interested in learning what is left of Latin

2017-12-13 19:11:57 UTC

@Kingfish ecclesiatical Latin, medieval, or Ancient Latin?

2017-12-13 19:17:48 UTC

Ceart go leor! Is maith liom é!

2017-12-13 19:29:09 UTC

@ThisIsChris well id hope it's ancient Latin however I'm not sure. I'll know more in January

2017-12-13 19:29:32 UTC

I wager its probably unlikely that it's ancient Latin

2017-12-13 19:34:50 UTC

@Kingfish I started reading this, it's interesting.

2017-12-13 19:50:45 UTC

I use the Pimsleur method.

2017-12-13 19:53:18 UTC

My African cousin is a polylinguist, dude speaks 9 language's.
I can understand a little Ukrainian and Afrikaans.

2017-12-13 19:55:48 UTC

Pimsleur is really a great system. It trains your ear so well. And that's a big part that is missing from other systems

2017-12-13 20:01:50 UTC

For sure. It's more than just memorizing words. It's basically instant conversation.

2017-12-13 20:10:55 UTC

@RevStench Since he was a kid? Does he just know the tribal languages of the region?

2017-12-13 20:15:03 UTC

5 since childhood, Zulu, Afrikaans, Xhosa and two others before he graduated.

2017-12-13 20:16:48 UTC

He worked for Mercedes and he picked up German fast, and Merc makes all employees learn German, based. Then he worked for some French company and Learned French due to him spending a lot of time in France. I forget what else he speaks.

2017-12-13 20:17:50 UTC

My brother has 4 kids and I have the 3 oldest learning German already. It's so cool to watch how they pick it up.

2017-12-13 20:21:39 UTC

I wish we were forcrd to learn a second language here in the states.

2017-12-13 20:43:53 UTC

We kind of do, but it's bullshit. I "learned" French, but forgot almost all of it because the teaching sucked and the frequency of exchange was low

2017-12-13 20:47:34 UTC

We don't start in grade school. I'm talking day one of your education you start learning a second or third language.

2017-12-14 00:46:33 UTC

Guten Tag!

2017-12-14 01:39:08 UTC

Hallo @Rick

2017-12-14 05:29:34 UTC

Hello, if anyone is interested I'll translate articles from Russian nationalist site "Sputnik I Pogrom" into English. Just let me know.

2017-12-14 14:11:34 UTC

@Nemets We have a Ukrainian learner if you know any of that @RevStench

2017-12-14 17:43:27 UTC

@this_that5553 @Rick hat ihr bock ein monatlich sprach Abend?

2017-12-14 18:19:34 UTC

@Prestor John Nothing yet. Getting a sense of who knows what right now. (I don't know German yet)

2017-12-14 18:29:50 UTC

Mein Deutsch ist nicht gut.

2017-12-14 18:30:38 UTC

2017-12-14 18:35:59 UTC

Nice work @this_that5553 , thanks

2017-12-14 18:38:15 UTC

Я говорю можно по русский

2017-12-14 20:04:09 UTC

Noice I have a pin

2017-12-15 02:33:47 UTC

@RevStench what type of Ukrainian are you learning? The standard type they teach in books, or the mixed dialect that most people speak?

2017-12-15 02:43:31 UTC

It's standard.

2017-12-15 02:44:49 UTC

For those that have learned a 'foreign language' without moving abroad and being immersed in it-- how did you do it?

2017-12-15 02:50:46 UTC

I can teach some basic Irish if you guys want

2017-12-15 02:51:06 UTC

Or at least translate some stuff at random and help with word pronunciation

2017-12-15 03:14:58 UTC

@Deleted User added to sticky

2017-12-15 03:15:28 UTC

@Deleted User I've gotten quite far with Michel Thomas and then writing/speaking with penpals from sites like Interpals

2017-12-15 03:21:32 UTC

Personally, I wouldn't waste time on Duolingo. only if bored.

I would always recommend Michel Thomas esque systems for a beginner to get up to speed. Then I'd say "go for it".

Granted, it's tougher with certain languages to do that, but yeah.

2017-12-15 03:37:28 UTC

Michel Thomas doesn't have an Irish course

2017-12-15 03:41:32 UTC

Ah yeah, there’s some online courses for Irish though. Sponsored by Ireland gov I think

2017-12-15 04:52:50 UTC

@Prestor John Wir können ein Gesprach auf Discord-Voice-Chat haben. Sagst du mir wann.

2017-12-15 21:40:14 UTC

Ich spreche deutsch und ein bisschen niederländisch!

2017-12-15 21:46:07 UTC

Sehr gut!

2017-12-15 21:46:21 UTC
2017-12-15 21:47:19 UTC

Ich habe ein Server fur die Gotter.

2017-12-16 17:52:04 UTC

Je veux apprendre l’allemande maintenant haha

2017-12-16 17:52:17 UTC

There’s a lot of speakers here

2017-12-16 20:22:55 UTC

Sprachen Zie Deutsch?

2017-12-16 20:23:41 UTC

Nein! Ja! Ich bin ein Berliner!

2017-12-16 20:23:53 UTC


2017-12-16 20:24:01 UTC

That's all I got for German. I do know some Italian and a bit of French

2017-12-17 21:05:22 UTC

I am a jelly 🍩

2017-12-19 03:50:30 UTC

@spooky_kraut#8307 can put me down for French and Japanese if you want. My written mandarin is rusty but my spoken mandarin is fine

2017-12-19 04:55:07 UTC

I speak Polish and some Russian, in case anyone needs practice

2017-12-19 04:55:32 UTC

Or can teach me more Russian

2017-12-26 00:45:22 UTC

@Rick erste Dienstag im Januar?

2017-12-26 13:56:12 UTC

Damn, I need to learn Ukrainian / Russian

2017-12-29 19:08:17 UTC

Anyone speak portuguese?

2017-12-29 19:08:33 UTC

Kinda tempted to learn a little- I just like how it sounds

2017-12-29 19:08:39 UTC

I do

2017-12-29 19:09:18 UTC

Are you around a lot of Brazilians or something?

2017-12-29 19:44:34 UTC

@ophiuchus I speak some continental Portuguese

2017-12-29 19:45:00 UTC

Not really no- just kinda interested

2017-12-29 19:45:13 UTC

@ThisIsChris it's rather different than the brazilian iteration right?

2017-12-29 19:48:11 UTC

Yeah the pronounciation is different and a lot of word choices are different. I've heard it described like if a Scott, a Texan, and a South African were speaking in a room together, though I'm pretty sure it's further than that. The Portuguese people I knew would rather get a textbook in English to study from rather than one in Brazilian Portuguese, although cost and selection and wide-knowing of English in Portugal contributes to that too.

2017-12-29 19:55:04 UTC

Portuguese people hate the Brazilian way lol

2017-12-29 19:55:50 UTC

Plus there's a bunch of different accents within Brazil too, just like how the US has a bunch of different accents.

2018-01-09 02:25:13 UTC

Are we updating the language list still in case we need interpretation on anything we know who to ask? I can do the Español thing.

2018-01-09 02:29:06 UTC

They took German out of my highschool because of windmills of peace.

2018-01-10 03:20:06 UTC

@Anthony Sealy - MO it's all updated

2018-01-10 04:26:39 UTC

Thanks. I'm fluent, but anything for publication would need copy edited. Lived overseas a bit, so I learned the language, unlike our southern neighbors who come here.

2018-01-13 02:03:44 UTC

I found a free website for language learning that seems pretty good. www.duolingo.com

2018-01-13 02:05:01 UTC

I'm attempting to learn German.

2018-01-13 02:06:15 UTC

They have a cellphone app for free too @Der Seeteufel - SD

2018-01-13 02:07:32 UTC

Thanks I'll have to get that so I can practice when I'm on break at work.

2018-01-13 13:13:03 UTC

One of the most helpful things they added to Duolingo was chatting practice with a bot. It sounds silly but it’s awesome practice for a typing conversation

2018-01-15 20:53:09 UTC

Ich spreche Deutsch sehr gern und ich bin ziemlich gut mit der Sprache. Wenn sie mit der Sprache hilfe brauchen, dann koennen sir mir einen PM senden . 😅 👌

2018-01-15 20:56:06 UTC

Aber vielleicht, dass was ich gesagt hatte nicht perfekt ist, naja es ist Deutsch und die Grammatik ist immer ein Schlacht.

2018-01-16 02:33:23 UTC


2018-01-21 21:03:59 UTC

@this_that5553 I can help with French, I've studied for years and done exchange programs.

2018-01-21 21:07:33 UTC

Also, if it hasn't been shared before, http://www.fsi-language-courses.net/fsi-language-courses/ has some great resources.

2018-01-21 21:13:15 UTC


2018-01-27 20:11:38 UTC

@Marseille Great recommendation!

2018-01-28 00:30:57 UTC

I can help anyone trying to learn Celtic languages or Latin but that's about it

2018-03-18 21:49:02 UTC

Buenos días ustedes. Soy "Wilhelm" y yo quiero practicar Español y aprendo Alemán.

2018-03-18 21:51:14 UTC


2018-03-18 21:58:22 UTC

In the Slav server

2018-03-18 21:58:27 UTC

DM for link

2018-03-18 21:58:34 UTC


2018-03-18 22:06:03 UTC

Hello, I would like to begin German. Is there a class starting soon for a regular voice chat?

2018-03-18 22:11:33 UTC

Und ich

2018-03-19 00:52:29 UTC

So how does the language server work?

2018-03-19 05:01:37 UTC

@Deleted User try pinging <@&387091385075105804> who are all people who have volunteered to be pinged on "academics" like language!

2018-03-19 09:42:36 UTC

@Wilhelm-OH#5377 Como quieres practicar? Por voz? No se si hay gente suficiente para una charla en grupo.

2018-03-19 09:42:52 UTC
2018-03-29 22:25:04 UTC

@everyone One of the Florida boys created a server exclusively for languages.


2018-03-31 00:28:59 UTC

@StrawberryArmada I've been learning some Irish and Scots Gaelic through music and poetry. I can't converse in the language, or really form a sentence on my own, but have mostly memorized phrases. Listening to the music really helps with pronouncing the words.

2018-03-31 00:29:22 UTC

I made a massive playlist of Gaelic music if you would be interested in that.

2018-04-20 01:38:18 UTC

@John O - Any way you could post a new link to the language server? Thank you.

2018-04-20 01:43:58 UTC
2018-04-20 01:44:58 UTC


2018-06-13 23:46:50 UTC

are language learning discussions still on the separate server?

2018-06-13 23:46:58 UTC
2018-06-13 23:48:16 UTC
2018-06-13 23:48:18 UTC
2018-06-25 03:38:22 UTC

Any native German speakers? I've been learning on Duolingo for a while now, but the voices are computer generated. How exactly does one pronounce the word "milch" ?

2018-06-25 06:33:30 UTC


2018-06-25 07:46:19 UTC

Is there any sort of "sh" sound?

2018-06-25 07:46:30 UTC

I have a feeling the robovoice is a little distorted.

2018-06-25 07:47:24 UTC

Not on that word.

2018-06-25 07:48:09 UTC

That I understand.

2018-06-25 07:48:13 UTC

Pretty sure the ch in milch is like the one in ich and unlike the one in nacht

2018-06-25 07:48:42 UTC

I think the best approximation of the sound is the h in the word “hue”

2018-06-25 07:48:46 UTC

OK, so there is an exhalation of air at the end?

2018-06-25 07:48:48 UTC

Kind of catlike

2018-06-25 07:49:34 UTC

I think High German Hoch Deutsch they may say it like an sh

2018-06-25 07:50:05 UTC

The male and female voices seem to differ a bit too on the pronunciation.

2018-06-25 07:51:16 UTC

It’s a fricative, so there’s a puff of air. Like English F or sh

2018-06-25 07:51:32 UTC

It’s not a stop, so there’s air.

2018-06-25 07:51:44 UTC

It's hard to say it 🙃

2018-06-25 07:51:55 UTC

It takes some time for sure

2018-06-25 07:52:24 UTC

In some dialects of English (including general American) it’s the same sound that’s in “human”

2018-06-25 07:52:34 UTC

The h glide sort of thing

2018-06-25 07:52:40 UTC

Not everyone says it like that

2018-06-25 07:52:53 UTC

Most people do though

2018-06-25 07:53:06 UTC

I will practice! Thanks for the assist you two.

2018-06-25 07:53:18 UTC

It’s much more toward the front of the mouth than the ch in noch

2018-06-25 07:53:32 UTC

That one’s way in the back, this is at the alveolar ridge

2018-06-25 07:53:39 UTC

Np man

2018-08-26 01:45:46 UTC

I can help you with your pesky german ch's

2018-09-26 02:23:12 UTC

I can help anyone with their Mandarin chinese if they need it

2018-10-01 22:17:08 UTC

Looking for someone to practice French with.

2018-10-01 22:20:43 UTC

Helping me get my accent to a understandable level would be greatly appreciated

2018-10-05 08:15:42 UTC

@Johnboy I can do that. I lived in Montreal for a couple of years when I was a kid- my French is pretty good.

2018-10-08 13:00:56 UTC

Anyone in @here well versed in Latin

2018-10-08 15:51:04 UTC

@Valaska Are you starting out?

2018-10-13 04:15:19 UTC

I'm thinking of learning another language (either picking up Spanish where I left off in high school or learning German from scratch). Which would you recommend and is duolingo any good?

2018-10-13 05:09:33 UTC

Duolingo is fine for vocabulary, it’s less good when it comes to internalizing grammar. There’s really no way around the latter without slogging through a reference grammar.

2018-10-26 05:11:55 UTC

Any fluent German speakers here? I have two sentences for translation; eBay seller can't understand what google translate spit out.

2018-10-26 05:12:20 UTC

"Can you please verify that there are no cracks in the plastic worm/reduction gear? My motor works but the gear is cracked and it prevents operation."

2018-10-26 05:12:44 UTC

it's called a worm gear, but also known as a reduction gear

2018-10-27 01:46:24 UTC

@BryceB-ND ☝️

2018-10-27 03:39:52 UTC

Koennen sie bitte sagen, wenn dieses Stück arbeitet? is a shitty way to ask but thats the best i can do atm

2018-10-27 03:44:13 UTC

Meinen Motor arbeitet aber der "Gang"(?) ist kaputt, also das ganzen Motor arbeitet nicht.

2018-10-27 03:44:26 UTC

I'm rusty but try that.

2018-10-27 03:45:30 UTC
2018-10-27 03:47:35 UTC

Idk the nouns for plastic worm/reduction gear lol so that's basically asking if the motor works, and then explaining your situation with your current motor

2018-10-27 03:49:16 UTC

Koennen sie bitte sagen, wenn dieses vorgelege arbeitet und auch, dass es nicht kaputt ist?

2018-10-27 05:09:54 UTC

OK I will try these, thank you!

2018-10-27 05:19:12 UTC

This guy in Germany has the only listing in the world for this exact part I need...but a cracked gear would be easy to miss. That's why I want him to check it first. It's hard to convey technical terms when they're not so readily learned in language programs.

2018-10-27 12:12:36 UTC

Yeah and believe me, technical terms can be ridiculous in

2018-10-27 12:12:39 UTC

in German

2018-11-14 00:14:53 UTC


2018-12-07 05:19:30 UTC

How intelligible is Dutch to Afrikaans?

2019-01-07 04:42:56 UTC

I've been all over the place with learning languages. Anyway, recently decided to pursue Spanish and it's just so discouraging how much leftism is injected into everything. I took it in hs but I am starting from the beginning and they're trying so hard to inject intersectionality every step of the way. Not just the picture posted, but every time they introduce a new adjective, ie iteligente, it's immediately introduced in the family section and every time it's associated with your sister or daughter. This may seem nitpicky, but you wonder why the intelligentsia is so far leftist, it's little things like this. Constant reinforcement of diversity even when approaching it from a normie lifestyle/perspective.

good evening folks,

I’ve been thinking about getting into freelance translation (English>Russian and vice versa) and I wanted to start in friendly circles. If anyone can point me towards an individual or organization that could use such a service, I’d love to know more.
