Learning language app

Postby angellawong963 » Fri, 07 Jul 2017 10:14 am

Hi there! I am a uni student majoring in Asian studies. I am currently working on Chinese, especially on my pronunciation part, unfortunately my professors are basically all Canadian which they cannot speak authentic kind of Chinese speaking. I once tried having lessons outside but it prices too unreasonable. Is there any recommendation, mostly preferred live teaching if possible? Thanksss :D :D

You can try italki dot com ..I have tried them before ...and its fun if you are ok with online conversations and lessons..

there are many professional teachers and community tutors to choose from in different budgets.. alternately there are many others who would do language exchange for free.. lessons are all done using skype or similar messaging services..

NOTE: I have no commercial interest and just a co-traveller on the chinese learning bandwagon

Have you ever heard about a programma called Rosetta Stone? It is definitely worth trying! But if you want to be a participant you will have to pay for a membership.
To want to, is to be able to.

Cram is a good app! It is kind of like having flash cards on your phone!

I second that .. you can likely grasp the basics within a week, but will need to keep at it, otherwise you will lose it fast too..
