Looking for Language Partner!

  1. Jan 26, 2014 #1
    Come ye, Come ye. Hear me, hear me!

    I am looking for a language partner, mainly in any of the following languages:
    Japanese
    Chinese
    English*
    French
    German

    If you know the language or you just wanna learn them, if you know any online forums on which I can learn these languages. Please, Please! send me a link in the pm, I am trying to immerse myself inside of the language and possibly get some ideas on how the cultures work. :)

    Again, Thank you in far advance :)

    Your Friendly Neuronaut,
    Noodle D.

    Try Memrise.com and the Mit ocw. I found an open source application for japanese just yesterday:
    http://zkanji.sourceforge.net/
    But right now kanji continues to elude me and I now don't have anymore extra time to pursue it. No idea about forums though.

    First hint "wanna" and "gotta" are not acceptable words in English, it's terrible slang. Please do not use them on this forum.

    May I ask what your native language is?

    Hmm... "WannabeNewton" might "wanna" say a few words about that. :rofl:

    How are you going to practice your pronounciation? You might be able to read/write those languages, but you'll never be able to speak them or be understood if you learn them soley online.

    What are japanese anime for?
    :tongue:
    Okay, memrise has verbal as well as visual cues, though granted they may not be enough.

    Thanks for those, and indeed japanese anime is perfect for how to say things, mimic Yusuke Urameshi (lol)

    I don t recommend learning Japanese from animes. Every single japanese person will go black belt karate on your sorry behind because of the way you are talking to them. Distinguish between formal and informal speech - anime is not good for that. It's kind of useful once you have got the basics down such as hiragana+katakana and watch anime with subtitles, but to outright learn from scratch from animes - do not suggest doing that.

    I was joking and so was he. Let me guess, you haven't seen Yu YU Hakusho have you? The protagonist Uramashi curses a lot. http://yuyuhakusho.wikia.com/wiki/Yusuke_Urameshi
