Five Languages, 45 Languages to go....

I’ve been listening to the audio files on the 50 Languages website:

http://www.goethe-verlag.com/book2/

Choose your native language, and it directs you to the languages it offers for speakers of your native language. Choose your target language and you'll see several offerings:

An on-line phrase book with audio, Vocabulary lists with audio, Downloadable audio files of the phrase book in two formats, one with target language only, and the other with native and target language (repeated by a male and female speaker).

In order to refresh my language skills. I download their audio files, and have enjoyed the progression of their lessons. Their material is very logical in the sequence that it is presented, much like Duolingo. Unlike Duolingo, the sentences they present are very usable in real life, and not random offerings, so it was very easy to construct a matrix of their 1800 words/phrases, and fill in all five of the languages I have studied.

I put the audio files on my MP3 player so that I can listen to them during my daily walk, and then I then copied the collection into Quizlet. Below are the links to the Quizlet decks I created.

You can always make a copy for yourself, and edit them as you wish.

If you simply want the list of phrases, I posted them here on my Italian notebook blog:

https://duolinguisto.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/50-languages-italian-phrase-list/

You simply copy it into a spreadsheet/document and remove the Italian and insert your target language, then copy those columns into Quizlet to create a deck. Although I was once a huge Anki fan and user, the Quizlet site's study tools are simply too good to not use. If you create a deck in another language, let me know and send me the link if you remember.

The navigation of this website is terrible. It took a while before I can figure out how to navigate :-) Thank you. It seems like the rending of foreign characters has bug: I cannot see the correct characters until I click on the translation. However I think it is a very useful source. Again, thank you.

It's not a bug. It's a hide/show function that allows you to self-test the sentences individually or all at once.
