When reading books in Spanish or German more than 20 years ago, there were always 10-15 words per page I didn't know. That's a big reason I created LingQ. t.co/7lOsGWDdEy

RT @mrjamesriley: Favourite resource for learning Chinese at present: @LingQ_Central - learning 'top-down' has always been my preferred approach, and having this in the tool-belt is gold. Immersion and addictively powerful listening and reading practice, as well as vocab accumulation 🔥

RT @paulvieira: "Canadians should not be surprised that their country is not a priority for vaccine makers, but they should be concerned about Ottawa’s mismanagement of the vaccine procurement process. It is a symptom of the negativity towards the biopharma industry."

RT @aliamjadrizvi: Dave Allen was four years old when he was introduced to God in church. You’ll never believe what happened next... 😉 t.co/3DZ8b25FAz

RT @epkaufm: Whistleblower at Smith College Resigns Over Racism - Common Sense with Bari Weiss t.co/YaZcHZn0yM

Don't keep trying to remember low frequency words. Spend the time enjoying the language by reading and listening. Acquire the language naturally and words will stick. t.co/PNAhBY74nk

I have a lot of books on language acquisition. The best out of the bunch is Explorations in Language Acquisition and Use, by @skrashen t.co/sxIovXfVQu

Forgetting is a big part of language learning. The brain is not so good at holding on to details. But the brain forms patterns. As long as you keep going, you'll acquire more and more of the language. t.co/y5NgmXWZxy

LingQ keeps track of your known words. This is not only motivating but it also helps you decide which content to read and listen to next based on the number of unknown words it contains. t.co/2RHeyKrw4E

It really is quite extraordinary, yet unfortunately not untypical, that someone studying linguistics feels they have the right to dictate the meaning of the word "linguist" in English, in contradiction to common usage. t.co/wl4DrXDIx5

There's no particular benefit in analyzing the different ways in which we know a word. t.co/UT6zzcaT5T

One of the more unrealistic ideas on how to speed up the process of language learning, is to try to learn while asleep. I doubt this would work for most people.

Some people look for short cuts in language learning, like learning while you sleep. I prefer to find ways to enjoy the process of discovering a new language world. I know it’s going to take time.
