Hi! It's nice to meet you.
Lovely weather we're having!
How have you been?
What part of England are you from?
On weekend I like to go bowling, fishing and ice-skating.

Is it a bad idea to start learning another language alongside studying Japanese? I've been learning jap for about a year and am considering picking up Finnish or Russian as well. I think that these languages are dissimilar enough that there's low chance of getting the different language rules mixed up in my head or whatever, but I'm a little wary of taking on two of the more difficult languages for English speakers at the same time.

I have some questions about learning new words.
About English: I've been learning English almost since elementary school, I seldom see a new word in the news or in something else that is for the commoner, however when I try to read any sophisticated works of fiction I see a lot of words which seem to be hapaxes. It feels like for any English adjective there are at least ten synonyms of French or Latin origin. How does one acquire knowledge of them, if you barely encounter them a couple of times in your whole life? Do you just brute force it in Anki, hoping that it will enter not only your passive vocabulary but active too? How does a native speaker do it?
About French: how does one remember the gender of a new word? There are no relations to gender of the word in your language and the shape of the word rarely tell which gender it has. Do you bruteforce it in Anki too?

>I don't want to talk to a bunch of arabs and africans
Most media in French is from France AFAIK. The overwhelming majority of literature in French is from France as well. Françafricains are numerous but don't have as much of a mark on French internet or media, from what I've seen.
>>99977644
I started studying in 7th grade but started getting more into it in high school. I read about grammar and the different tense-aspect-mood combinations bit by bit over time, then I started reading books and short stories in French to get a feel for the style and syntax of the language. I eventually worked my way up to watching French videos with subtitles, then without subtitles.

French movies :
I know mostly old stuff, recent French movies don't seem very good.
Belmondo's movies are usually good action movies, I would recommend Le profesionnel and Le magnifique to start :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OA67o29fnGk (A spy get sold by his government and decide to comeback to get his revenge)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cly4X01y3Yk (A loser writes Erotic action novel for girls but he is so tired of how cheesy it is and decides to ruin it)

Louis de Funès is considered comedy pic in France but he can be very bad I only recommend Rabbit Jacob and Oscar :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLwHaK86DsM (/pol/ has to pretend he is jewish or else he get killed, mostly funny cause you can't do many of these jokes nowadays)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVMwIawdN9E (Quiproquo the movie, usually it's such a tired cliché but this movie does it so well that it works)

TV series :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b05Scfhi0dU&t=1s
Kaamelott with Palmashow is the most funny thing on tv these recent years, the subtitles are absolute garbage.

French literature :
Would need it's own thread. Can still provide stuff if you need.

Recent good French movie :
Jean dujardin's movies are usually good :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S9Z901FL0k (''dude capitalism'' the message of the movie is old and edgy but it's very well made and full of good ideas)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw0tlOdn5Mc (Same actor, makes fun of the James bond and French smugness archetype)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AELNPQcR6lE (Typical copVSmafia movie, forgettable but well made)

Old French musique :
Aznavour, nicknamed the French sinatra, good lyrics and good voice :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWLc0J52b2I
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yILg7NTUfCQ

Stromae catchy, okay lyrics :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiKj0Z_Xnjc

Brassens, largely inaccessible to non French speakers because he is more a comic-poet than a singer, the best of French writting but hard to understand even for a French, mostly talks about sex, his most famous song is about a guy getting fucked by a gorilla :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W6HM0CCiRs
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwQDzStVFOM

Brel, more musical, good lyrics :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U06PicY2C4

Johnny Hallyday, did someone say boomer music ?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_4TDfNaMe4

French techno :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x537Cqg5nEI
N'to is very good but no lyrics

Renaud, far left singer very engaged lyrics but has some good words and catchy music (for French songs) :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm7nGX193bo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YqzuE-5RE8

There are more things in recent music but I don't really listen to it and now it's lots of nigger stuff, still some okayish stuff left tho.

> Your Flaws Are Probably More Attractive Than You Think They Are

s part of a special exhibit, museum-goers were invited to write down their secrets on small pieces of vellum paper and hang the entries on a wall for everyone to see. On one side, people posted their anxieties; on the other side, their hopes. Thousands of visitors contributed lines like:
“I’m anxious because I’m afraid I’ll die alone,”
“I’m anxious because I might miss my chance to become a mom,”
“I’m hopeful because life is beautiful and I will feel happy soon.”

But psychological research suggests that such fear can be overblown in people’s minds. Often, there’s a mismatch between how people perceive their vulnerabilities and how others interpret them. We tend to think showing vulnerability makes us seem weak, inadequate, and flawed—a mess. But when others see our vulnerability, they might perceive something quite different, something alluring. A recent set of studies calls this phenomenon “the beautiful mess effect.” It suggests that everyone should be less afraid of opening up—at least in certain cases.

In their studies, the team asked participants to imagine themselves in a variety of vulnerable situations—such as confessing romantic feelings to your best friend, being the first to apologize to your romantic partner after a big fight, and admitting that you made a serious mistake to your team at work. When people imagined themselves in those situations, they tended to believe that showing vulnerability would make them appear weak and inadequate. But when people imagined someone else in those situations, they were more likely to describe showing vulnerability as “desirable” and “good.”

“We love seeing raw truth and openness in other people,” Brown writes in her book Daring Greatly, “but we’re afraid to let them see it in us.”
>>
>>99989136
In another study, Bruk and her team invited students into the lab and broke them into two groups. Those in one group were asked (vulnerability alert!) to sing an improvised song in front of a jury, while those in the other were asked to serve as members of that jury. It was a bluff; in the end, no one sang or judged. But before the participants realized that they were being had, they answered some questions about vulnerability. Those in the singing group saw their anticipated vulnerability more negatively, endorsing statements such as “When I show my vulnerability, other people find it repellant” and “I should avoid showing my vulnerability.” The judges were far more generous when they evaluated the vulnerability of the singers, saying that their singing would be a sign of “strength” and “courage.”

To find out why this gap exists, Bruk and her team tested a theory about how the human mind processes information. They found that when we think about our own vulnerability, it’s more concrete and real, because we are so close to it. Under that magnified perspective, our imperfections are clearer, and it’s easier to identify everything that might go wrong. But when we think about another person’s vulnerability, it’s more distant and abstract. We can take a wider perspective that allows us to see not just the bad, but the good as well.

Research beyond Bruk’s and Brown’s generally supports the notion that people tend to admire vulnerability in others. When people show vulnerability at school or work, such as by asking for advice and help, they appear more competent to their advisers and supervisors—and opening up in personal relationships can even make people fall in love with each other. But there are times when being vulnerable can backfire—when it comes across less as beauty and more as straight-up mess.

A classic example is a 1966 experiment led by the psychologist Elliot Aronson. Aronson and his colleagues had students listen to recordings of candidates interviewing to be part of a quiz-bowl team. Two of the candidates appeared smart by answering most of the questions right, while the other two answered only 30 percent correctly. Then, one group of students heard an eruption of noise and clanging dishes, followed by one of the smart candidates saying, “Oh my goodness—I’ve spilled coffee all over my new suit.” Another group of students heard the same clamor, but then heard one of the mediocre candidates saying he spilled the coffee. Afterward, the students said they liked the smart candidate even more after he embarrassed himself. But the opposite was true of the mediocre candidate. The students said they liked him even less after seeing him in a vulnerable situation.

In psychology, this is known as the “pratfall effect.” Responses to someone’s vulnerability largely seem to depend on how others perceive that person beforehand. If she appears strong and capable before showing vulnerability, people are sympathetic; the vulnerability is humanizing, like that time Jennifer Lawrence tripped on her way to accept the Best Actress award at the 2013 Oscars. But if the person doesn’t seem competent, people are repelled; she really does seem like a mess, nothing beautiful about it.

The pratfall effect can be especially pronounced in the workplace, where, in America at least, there’s been an overall push for people to open up and be “authentic.” But if you haven’t established your competence first, showing vulnerability can damage your credibility. For example, at one company Rosh studied, a woman introduced herself to her colleagues not by mentioning her credentials and education, but by talking about how she’d been awake the previous night caring for her sick baby. It took her months to reestablish her credibility.

>いい天気です
いい天気です(ね)sounds friendlier, would be a more appropriate tone in this context
>何部のイングランド から来たのか。
イギリスどこの出身ですか?
>今なにもしない。
今は何もしてない。your sentence isn't grammatically wrong, but it says "i'm not going to do anything now" because of the しない
>何時起こしたのか。
何時に起きた(の)? or 何時に起きましたか? but the latter is too polite for a question like this. 起こす = to wake someone up, as opposed to 起きる(to wake up), so your translation would mean "what time did [you] wake [me] up?"
>今出るね。そうして、明日話すの。
そろそろ行かないといけないから、また(明日話そう)ね!
出るis more like leaving home for another destination, so your sentence would sound like "i'm leaving home now (so i'll be seeing you in a few)", the opposite of what you're trying to say. 行くjust means to leave, to go, without that implication
>これを言ったので、行きたくないと思うよ。

From what I have read about it, people complain about the dated and sometimes "sexist" vocabulary. It was also produced prior to the German language reform in the 90s or whenever it was. And with FSI in general, audio quality will probably not be as good as Assimil or other programs.

>>100019852
according to this Germanist he says from the readers point of view

capitalized words structure the sentence better and the processing of information from reading faster, furthermore because German grammar you have nouns that pop up in different places in a sentence capitalizing makes it easier to understand the meaning of a sentence,

>I don’t really have the money
Well, FSI is free so that's a huge advantage. The main issues are sound quality (still good enough to learn) and that it's "boring" because it's repetitive drills & pronunciation. Ultimately you have nothing to lose by trying it.

Tell me what's the right exposure for me to go from a B1 retard level of French to C1.

I watch some shit in French with English subs (no french subs available), and listen to french music.

But still I am stuck in this shit tier level where I can more or less understand a lot but can't express myself, I've lived in France for 4 months and improved from level 0 to B1 or so, but I can't move to France to get a C1 level and I don't have a french gf so what do?!

I'm stuck and frustrated.

>>100024766
>>100024669
Shit sorry, I meant proper nouns. Languages and people names are proper nouns.
>>
>>100024969
probably be a big reason why youre stuck in that level is because youre just passivley listening instead of actively listening or actively studying french

try to find websites with french subs and most importantly to improve your level is learning new vocabulary and idioms.

buy grammar books for b2 and study them

Also speaking is important and I suggest to look for french people online that would help you use hellotalk I guess or penpals

this is all advice I used when I studied german to reach B2 .

How is his French Bros

It's uncanny how similar French and Breton sound.
>>
>>100028458
Presumably Breton has been substantially influenced by French over the years, and so certain aspects will probably be extremely similar (e.g. intonation). There's also the fact that the phonemes of Breton are very similar to those of French (especially the vowels which are basically identical, as well as consonants such as /ɥ/. A lot of the similarities of course are likely the result of some French influence, e.g. the use of /ʁ/ rather than /r/ or /ɾ/, and the fact that the traditional /ð/ doesn't seem so common nowadays. However, if you pay attention; there's still some differences, e.g. Basque has /ɣ/ and /x/, labialized velar consonants, some speakers still conserve a trilled /r/, and so on.
>>
>>100025697
Anki is like using a program from the 90s. Memrise is better.
>>
>>100028935
Yeah I was wondering whether the similarities were due to French influencing Breton or French starting out basically as Vulgar Latin spoken by Celts
>>
>>100029017
I could be wrong but I think it's unlikely that Breton specifically was particularly influential in the development of French since Breton-French contact was fairly limited for quite a long time, and Breton isn't even from the same branch of Celtic languages as Gaulish.
>>
>>100028935
you seem to know a lot about le french is it true the nasal sound came from celtic infleunce? or was is it germanic ?
>>
>>100029200
That I don't know, sorry. If I had to hazard a guess I'd say it's unlikely though, since the present orthography shows the nasalization historical process fairly clearly (especially with word pairs such as "bon"/"bonne"), so I imagine that it couldn't have occured so long ago that it could be attributed to Celtic influence.

Also learning German so could be wrong but I think it's

>>
>>100031549
>could be wrong
it totally is. in fact it's a LOT worse than

>Am Wochenende gehe ich gerne Bowling, Anglen und Eis(skating?)
which is also wrong but way closer to a functional german sentence.

>Am Wochenende gehe ich gerne ZUM Bowling, Angeln und Schlittschuhlaufen.
or
>Am Wochenende gehe ich gerne bowlen, angeln und schlittschuhlaufen.

are gud.

morning sir

>>100033488
goeiesmorgens deze morgen!
waarom zijn dronken dromen zo raar en fucked up?

ik droomde dat ik in een heel klein dorpje ergens in Roemenië was verdwaald, met een gozer die ik niet kende. Wij waren daar gekomen met een bus, en in die bus hadden wij wat te eten gekocht op een of andere manier, zo'n thuisbezorgd maar in die bus...?!
en ik had hetzelfde gekocht als die kerel maar het was in dezelfde zakje geleverd, schnitzel met brood ofzo weet ik veel
maar die aso hij eet bijna alles op, en toen waren wij uitgestapt in die klein dorpje en toen gaf hij mij wat er over was van mijn stukje schnitzel, _mijn_ godverdomme schnitzel
toen realiseerde ik me dat er een heel grote mooie kerk ergens in het dorpje was (blijkbaar had ik google maps), maar ik wilde ook terug naar Boekarest
dus ik rende naar de treinstation en ik zag dit ene idioot ook naar de treinstation aan het rennen, maar hij was voor me
en voor dat ik een idioot van CFR kon vragen of dat de goede trein was was de trein al vertrokken
ik was heel boos, omdat de volgende trein zou heel laat komen
en daarna word ik wakker
die end

It is not always reflexive, no

And uh, I guess you can look up introductory syntax books on http://gen.lib.rus.ec/ or something?

a finite verb is a verb that shows you tense, person, and number
for example ''ist''
it tells you the subject is singular, you know it's present tense, and you know it's a 3rd person, either he, she or it

non-finite verb does not show this
for example ''laufen''
this does not have tense, it dos not show the person or the number, it's just an infinitive

So a correct sentence is
>Ich habe das gekaufen.
Not
>*Ich gekaufen das habe
or
>*Gekaufen ich das have
etc.

The finite verb 'habe', which shows tense, number, and person, goes second, and 'gekaufen' goes last, because it is not finite

>>
>>100043399
Also the example you give is specifically about Perfekt, such rules apply to Modalverben as well but it's different. Another difference between the English and German Perfekt Zeitform is that some verbs in German require 'sein' as a Hilfsverb instead of haben

>Ich habe gekauft
but
>Ich bin gefahren
>>
>>100043508
I just gave an example of a finite verb, I was not describing past tense, so yeah, bin goes second too
