Why do French People Sound French? | Improve Your Accent

In this video, I explain why French people sound French when speaking English. I break down the accent features with the help of current French president Emmanuel Macron! (10 points to anyone who realised that the 2nd /p/ in "passport" is fairly unaspirated in English) Thanks to those viewers who have pointed out that Emmanuel Macron has "un cheveu sur la langue" in French. However, this really doesn't matter. I teach many French students who hypercorrect and pronounce /s/ as /θ/ (and /z/ as /ð/) in English, and who don't have "un cheveu sur la langue". This video is simply a demonstration of potential pronunciation issues French people may have in English. Hypercorrection is a common issue and Macron illustrates this.

How to Learn Any Language in Two Months, Part 2: SENTENCE MINING

How to learn any language by sentence mining, aka gathering as many sentences, with audio, as you can find and memorizing them via spaced repetition. Some things I discussed in the video: Anki, a program for creating and reviewing flashcards with a built-in spaced-repetition algorithm that maximizes your review efficiency: http://ankisrs.net/ CantoDict sentences, hundreds of Cantonese sentences and audio: http://www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk/scripts/examplelist.htm Tatoeba, an awesome sentence database with hundreds of thousands of sentences in different languages, often with audio: https://tatoeba.org/eng/ Glossika, a review system that gives you 3,000 sentences in a huge variety of languages, including oddball ones that you can only find there like Belarusian, Armenian, and Wenzhounese: https://glossika.com/ Bing Mandarin-English dictionary, a SUPERB resource for finding Mandarin examples (as well as a one-stop-shop Mandarin/Chinese dictionary) -- automatically compiles what has to be millions of examples from across the web. http://dict.bing.com.cn/?form=BDVSP4#%3Ahome (None of these are paid endorsements, btw.) You can get my Cantonese Anki deck, which has about 400 example sentences in Cantonese, English, and Mandarin, with audio, right here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pzsfy2qbnk1llgt/378%20Cantonese%20Sentences.apkg?dl=0 And don't forget to subscribe!

Why I started learning Arabic

Learn more here: https://www.mezzoguild.com/ I use italki to learn Arabic: https://www.mezzoguild.com/italki Just reflecting a little on why I began to learn Arabic as a teenager. It's a really long story actually so this doesn't cover it that well :) Is there a language you've learned that has become a special part of your life and identity?

hey everyone

today i'm coming at ya with a video about learning languages. while i say "how i learned chinese" it's actually more of "how to learn your host language while on exchange".
language learning is one of the most challenging tasks on exchange, but also the one where we, as exchange students, are able to get the most help (as opposed to making friends for example).

good luck to all and anyone who is learning a language!
thank you for watching, i hope it helped even just a little.
talk to you all next time, bye!
