So You Want to Learn… List:

Other:

  • Tumblr tags: #learning _________ 
  • Can I become Fluent in ______ in ______ months/weeks/days?
     
    No. You can’t. 
  • Can I learn Japanese from just watching Anime/Korean from Kpop/Chinese from Wuxia films?
    Not on your life. Do you only speak the english you know from Spongebob? N’SYNC? The 300? Didn’t think so.
  • What about Rosetta Stone?
    For $180-$399 dollars? Are you insane? The program is built to teach you the Romantic languages.  If you buy Rosetta stone for $400, and pass up every free resource on this list, I doubt your desire to actually learn anything. Don’t do it to yourself. That is a lot of money you probably won’t get back.
  • But I heard that Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Arabic/etc is really difficult:
    Well if over a billion Chinese people can speak Chinese, why can’t you? No really, don’t let something like this bother you. No, this is not the ease of moving from a English to a Romance language or German, but hey, if you wanted to learn German (and all those ridiculous cases) you’d be doing that. 
  • But what about ______?
    I have knowledge on resources mostly limited to JPN/CHI/KOR classes. This is a participatory list, which I am more than grateful to take submissions for.
I repost this every two weeks whether I need to or not. It too good not to and the original compiler deserves that much respect.

and the stars will be your eyes
and the wind will be my hands
