Possibly the most commonly asked question about language learning is "What is the easiest language to learn?" I answer that question in general, and then with regard to native English speakers. The short answer: whatever language is most similar to your native language. But of course there`s more to it than that. In this video I discuss the easiest language to learn as well as the hardest language to learn. The full FSI list can be found here: http://langfocus.com/language-features/what-is-the-easiest-language-to-learn-for-english-speakers/ Support Langfocus on Patreon: http://patreon.com/langfocus http://facebook.com/langfocus http://instagram.com/langfocus http://twitter.com/langfocus http://langfocus.com Music: "Kickin` It" by Jingle Punks Outro music: "Otis McMusic" by "Otis McDonald.
That's right! One thousand days of Duolingo. "Dude, are you insane?". Maybe! But I did it anyway! After all, was it worth it? Did I learn another language thanks to Duolingo? I put some thoughts and tried to do some sort of review about my experiences of a non-native English speaker who learned the language from zero using Duolingo as a "start". It's important to make clear that this is MY PERSONAL OPINION about the usage of the platform and it's limited to the "English from Portuguese" course/tree (with its own features, attributes, and limitations). Also, its effectiveness can vary from one person to another (as well as how you use it on a regular basis). Feel free to comment down below what you think about the platform, your current streak and what language you are trying to learn. I hope you enjoy this video! If you do, please consider giving a "Thumbs Up" and subscribing to this channel to show me your support (and you'll be able to catch up all the upcoming videos). And it would be extremely appreciated if you share this video with your friends. Thanks for watching (and reading all this stuff). Oh, and just in case you wonder... - Day 01: August 14th, 2015 - Day 1000: May 10th, 2018 Notice 01: This video isn't sponsored! I'm just a real user/fan of Duolingo. Notice 02: Duolingo IS NOT the only program/platform I've been using to learn English, but it was the first one and it's one of the most useful tools I've ever used (it helps me even today). Notice 03: As you can see above, I'm NOT a native English speaker, but I decided to record this video in English so I could reach as many people as possible and I wanted to show how has been my progress. And it was a good exercise to my writing/speaking skills, too! ;) My social media (follow me): Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRafaelLeon Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RafaLeon14 References: https://www.duolingo.com/info https://www.duolingo.com/courses/all https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duolingo https://s3.amazonaws.com/duolingo-papers/other/vesselinov-grego.duolingo12.pdf https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/0/15-best-language-apps/ https://designtoimprovelife.dk/duolingo-index-award-2015-winner-play-learning-category/ http://making.duolingo.com/how-streaks-keep-duolingo-learners-committed-to-their-language-goals http://making.duolingo.com/how-we-learn-how-you-learn http://making.duolingo.com/which-countries-study-which-languages-and-what-can-we-learn-from-it https://medium.com/tech-in-pittsburgh/how-to-win-at-duolingo-927c4dddf319 https://medium.com/language-learning-blog/duolingo-73b5c6b00a5d https://medium.com/the-mission/3-things-i-learned-from-365-days-straight-on-duolingo-a54923ac9d9b https://medium.com/ben-and-dion/duolingo-a-better-than-text-book-approach-to-practical-spaced-repetition-cee48a4b849 https://www.quora.com/Does-Duolingo-not-work-for-everyone https://www.quora.com/How-effective-is-Duolingo-in-learning-a-language/answer/Brad-Arner https://twitter.com/shitduosays http://fluentlanguage.co.uk/blog/better-duolingo-experience http://fluentlanguage.co.uk/blog/duolingo-review-fluentlanguage https://www.vice.com/en_nz/article/ezxyyz/are-duolingo-users-actually-learning-anything-useful https://language101.com/reviews/duolingo/ Soundtracks: - Happy by MBB https://soundcloud.com/mbbofficial Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported — CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/g6swHZbWtRc - Bedtime Stories by Ross Bugden This track is licensed under a ‘Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License’.

Today I decided to make a quick tutorial demonstrating how I use Duolingo on my iPhone to facilitate my language learning and strengthen my skills in my weaker languages! I define a problem which I have with the app, which is it's lack of the 'Tips and Notes' section which the browser version always contains, and I show you all a neat little way to access the notes and all of your languages right from your home screen! Enjoy!

Watch in HD! Hello Friends! Welcome to part one of my little walk through on learning Swedish on Duolingo. It's a beautiful language (though, all languages are beautiful). If you have nothing else to do, join me on a trek to be able to communicate with the Swedish peoples! :) Also, IKEA is Swedish so...yeah. Another reason to learn it. "Swedish is spoken by about 10 million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland. Visit the home of the Nobel prize, get ready to attend a traditional crayfish party in the summer and meet some of the most peaceful people in the world - Sweden celebrates 200 years of peace this year! Swedish speakers can also understand some Danish and Norwegian, since all three languages are derived from Old Norse, the language of the vikings." - Duolingo Website ► Thanks for Watching!

Hi guys and girls, today I started to learn a new language from zero. My goal is to start understanding and speaking Norwegian in 1 month. I am using free duolingo online courses for it. If you have any other good ideas to learn it faster you can let me know in the comments. ;)
