Your favourite language resources outside of duolingo
What are your favorite language learning resources outside of duolingo?
I current using clozemaster, memrise, pimsluer, mosalingua and mondly to learn Brazilian Portuguese but I would like to find more language resources.
If you know of any other sites or apps, please comment below.
I use Lang-8, Lingvist, Clozemaster, Lyricstraining, and Memrise for language learning. ^ ^
If you are a bit advanced in a language (meaning you know most if not all of the grammar rules and can maintain a conversation) and you want to enhance your vocabulary, Lingvist is a great site for that. Lang-8 is great for strengthening your writing skills, but I heard that site is no longer taking new users. Lyricstraining is great for enhancing your listening comprehension.
I personally really like Language Transfer (Spanish, Greek, Swahili, German, French, Turkish, Arabic and Italian). It does a really good job at teaching you the structure of the language and it just really gets you speaking. Also, it is free!
The Michel Thomas method (French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Greek, Portuguese, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese) is not free (however, google is a pretty powerful tool ;) and is similar to Language Transfer (the MT method inspired the Language Transfer approach) and like LT, it really teaches you the building blocks of the language and gets you speaking pretty much right away.
You can also find similar courses for Japanese, Icelandic and, wait for it: Finnish! I haven't found any other similar courses, but if anyone knows anyhting similar I would be delighted to know about it.
