Languages outside of Duo
Are any of you learning any languages outside of Duolingo; if so how are you doing it and how are you getting on?
I'm learning Japanese the old-fashioned way, with a tutor, a textbook, and a lot of flashcards (with the English for Japanese tree as a supplement). It's going pretty well and I absolutely love Japanese!
I'm learning American Sign Language using LifePrint. It's free, created by a hard of hearing person with a Ph.D in Deaf Studies. It's connected to the Youtube channel called Bill Vicars. It's been great so far! It's helped me communicate with my hard of hearing friend whenever we're in restaurants and stuff we are able to converse using ASL. :)
I'm learning Korean currently. honestly I love it so much but thats not the point lol cx I am using memrise to remember sole vocabulary since its kind of hard to learn grammar and sentences. Then I use howtostudyKorean.com for grammar info (literally the most helpful site ever cx) and now I'm ordering a textbook to see how I like it (: (Also watching some korean dramas)
Latin. Pretty well. It's pretty straightforward given my existing knowledge of Romance vocab and grammar and cases from Russian. I find additional vocab overall pretty easy to retain since even if it's new, there's usually something quite familiar about it.
Georgian. Less well, schockingly ;) There aren't nearly as many tools; they're not as good; and the vocab is just extremely unfamiliar, which is probably the hardest part.
