Another website to learn languages
It has all the languages, including ones that people ask for, such as Finnish, Cantonese, Mandarin, among many more languages .
For people who want courses such as Chinese, Arabic, Finnish, Afrikaans, this website has plenty to learn while waiting till Duolingo gets those courses.
It teaches words, practical phrases that people would need to say, grammar, flashcards, quizzes.
I tried the Polish quiz. It was multiple choice. I only got answers correct because of being a good guesser.
There is no owl, lingots, or streaks though. You don't need lingots to buy their quiz. It is free.
It's a good resource... but only for people who are starting the language and want to learn some words.
The site includes common words and phrases, what makes it cooler than a lot of pages I visited is that it also has auditory material, so it can really help people to know how words and phrases are ponounced.
As for grammar, the site doesn't do quite well. It gives you examples, but it doesn't explain to you when and when not to use some words.
The site has one flaw though with what offers, that being the auditory material, which isn't accurate. Some phrases are pronounced as they should be, but I have found phrases such as "Gusto en conocerte" (spanish for "Nice to meet you!") but instead I hear "Gusto en conocerlo" (which also means "Nice to meet you!", but this is for formal conversations only). This flaw makes me distrust the page a little bit.
Yesterday I listened to audio in the Spanish course. Some of it didn't sound like what it was supposed to be saying and some of the audio is missing. I looked at the Yiddish course and it didn't have any audio at all. They have a Contact button where people can make suggestions and give feedback. It says they welcome feedback. Just now I listened to some of the Icelandic audio. It would be nice if the voice said it slower. Anyway, at least it's something for people who keep asking for Icelandic, Finnish, etc. till Duolingo gets those courses.
The biggest flaw for me is that the site is too English-centric(?). What I mean by that is that the site makes no difference between the two yous or theys, for example. At least the pronoun table lists two yous (tu without an accent and usted in Spanish) but doesn't explain the difference, forgets the other one when it comes to possessives and randomly mixes them between the sentences.

i would like to speak french up to the level that I could survive in Paris without any translation. a Also because I do not practice often, I keep forgetting basic words or verb sentences. I will check this new website. Tks.
