Learning languages--choosing grammar programs - June 28th 2013, 11:35 PM

I am trying to learn 2-3 new languages, sign language is under control I don't need to be conversant in that. I do how ever want to be conversant in at least 2 more languages other then English. What are good things to buy for this???? (Books and such)

I specifically want to learn Arabic, I know Egyptian Arabic seems to be a good choice for dialect but I dunno how to access media and such to get used to hearing it. And unlike European languages I don't know how to become familiar with the linguistic mannerisms (ex. I heard even non-religious people will say things like "praise be to god" so how to does one learn those nuances).

Help please




Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

Hey there,
I think a good way to learn foreign languages is through being involved in those communities. For instance, you said you wanted to learn Arabic. A good way to start is downloading one of those smart phone apps about learning foreign languages, and I personally find the paid ones better than the free ones since they offer many options. Buying books is a good way, perhaps you could try finding one of those "Arabic for Dummies" books? But yeah, try going to your local book store or an online book store, such as amazon.com and seeing all the available books out there. For pronunciations, Google Translate is great; you can type in the phrase and it will translate and speak it for you in the other language. Anyways, I think it's really awesome that you are wanting to learn more languages. I hope this helps!

Best of luck,
Rishy
