Mono-linguist : simply , this term refers to people who speak only their native language           ( one language) , crystal clear , isn't it :D
Bi-linguist: this is the second grade in language scale, refers to people who speak two languages, including their native language, like everyone in this world (as they study a second language at school ) , examples are numerous , it could be even you neighbour :D


Multi-linguist : in fact , there is an interferance ,the multilinguist is  as similar as the next grade of polyglot , but with a small difference , a multilinguist is anyone …

- audible material sticks in the brain more than a printed one :  let's imagine that you are watching TV and you see a commercial with a song you like ...after few hours ...you go to read a novel you bought from library......now , if i asked you to repeat the line "x" in page "n" ....you are most likely to forget as you focused on the story more than focusing on vocabulary used in the novel , however , if i asked you to sing the commercial , there are chances to sing a large part of the song (well , I don't know if t…

Top 6 moments only language hackers can enjoy

Selam arkadaşlar , n'aber :D (Hi friends , what's up :D ) ,  I hope you are fine and you are enjoying this week learning new words online :D , I'm back again with a new post , where I want to share with you top 6 moments that only language hackers enjoy :D , moments that only people like you and I are enjoying them :D , so without making more suspense , let's start :D

When your friend asks you a question and you reply in another language : we all had that moment when someone asked us about something and we reply "quoi?" for example haha :D some of them may consider it as you are trying to show that you speak languages , but they forget that when we -language hackers- want to learn a language , we program our brains and subconscious to get used to it , which result sometimes to "drop" some words unintentionally :D
when you want to write a word in a language , and you realize that is a spelling of the same word in another language : i'm sure you exp…

Tired from Facebook conversations , try Hellotalk

Image
Good morning brothers and sisters wherever you are in the world, how are you :D I hope you are that you are fine and that you are enjoying your time :) , this week I come with a new app that can help you much in language , especially if we know that language exchange is somewhat difficult to realize via Facebook conversations because both of speakers should speak one language in order to communicate (which is English in most of cases , as it's popular and understood by most of people ) , by this way , you end by speaking no word in your target language,and by the time , you start to forget words and your level falls down .




For that reason , a new app was made just for that , to make language exchange easier and being understood while speaking your mother tongue, but also , you can learn sentences by translating your friend's reply , without need to copy the sentence and paste it in other translation apps , in HelloTalk app , you can do all these while enjoying talking with your…

Hi friends , come stai :D (How are you in Italian ) , hope that you are fine and full of energy :) my story with this article began when I was walking around in a library ,when i found a title "learn English in a week,simply,and without teacher" yeah....sounds weird :p , learn English in a week with a tiny book ? :D  and I stand looking for that book and laugh silently (as i'm not the only one in the library lol :D ) , I said "Are you kidding with me ? I studied English since my last years in Elementary school and still not mastering it yet , and you come to kid with me with that small book in your hands ? " :D .

   For that reason ,I decided to write this article to spread awarness about the subject , if you are a begineer and it was a coincidence and you passed by such books and you bought it , well , in this case I should say that I've a bridge to sell :D :p lol , maybe you are asking why ? because when you are reading such books , they just give you sent…

Hi Friends , what's up :D may be it's hilarious to read such titles in myb blog , and maybe also you say "Are you crazy ? " and the like , in a way , I'm agree with you because there is no method to master a language from day 1 , but to speak words that you need , this can be done in less than a day :D , the technique I'll show you today was come yesterday to my inbox , by a language polyglot , so I said why not to share it with you :D , thanks to this method, you can "speak" a language even if you don't have an extensive vocabulary .

Now, the question that comes to your mind is HOW can I do it ? simple :D , as we all know , nearly all languages in the world follow the same algorithm , you meet a Canadian , you start by a simple hello/bonjour , then you introduce yourself and your occupations , and the same for Indian , French , and for all languages in general , so from this fact the idea comes ,to create a script that won't take from you mo…

So , as we all know , Instagram is a social network based on the concept of pictures and short videos sharing , and these are the good points in this app , that can help language learners , especially the ones who have a pictographic memory (people that memorize pictures :)  ) , to learn even faster :) . Personally , it was a year ago when I created my profile on Instagram , and I can say that it helped me a lot to get more vocabulary in many languages , all what you need after you create your account is to look for language-related profiles , or by following hashtags (#) related to language learning to get daily targeted posts and people to follow , for…
