STEVE’S TIP OF THE WEEK

When you listen, don’t worry if you are not always focused on what you are listening to. The mind will wander. Of course, the more interesting the content, and the more you understand, the easier it is to focus. But if the content is difficult, or a little boring, just let it wash over you, focus when you can, and don’t worry about the parts you miss.

lu1974

lu1974 admits that French seems to be easier to learn because it is close to lu1974’s native language Spanish. lu1974 has decided to make the 90-Day Challenge a bit more challenging with English. However, motivation and interest help a lot. lu1974 has one of the highest activity scores in English Rankings! Great job!

where do you LingQ

“LingQing a casa (Italian for “at home”). Surrounded by books, books and more books! La bella vita”.

Thanks to huggie_spice for sharing her picture and letting us know where she LingQs. She is learning Italian for the 90-Day Challenge and doing it great. Her top position in the Italian Rankings is worth a thousand words. Congratulations, huggie_spice!

  1. I endured tree years French and five years English at school, but it was always a turtune for me to learn them. After this time I flopped either to understand simply texts in French nor to speak even small talk with people from different countries in English on holidays. I was dissatisfied abaut it and finally abondon to use them at all. Before LingQ I couldn’t believe that to learn languages can be so much enjoable and I thought that you have been talented to be good in it. Now I know that only motivation and consequence enable me to achieve my goals witch are to be able to watch english films without subtitles and to appreciate the oscar nomination live :).
    To learn English daily became an usefull habitude for me. Thank you LingQ for this great opportunity and helpfull experience!
