I've used Duolingo, and it was ineffective for me.
I'd use Mango Languages. It's what I use. The biggest flaw (and obviously the dealbreaker for you) is that I don't think it features Esperanto.

Thanks for mentioning Mango. I've been looking for an app like this that offers Latin (and koine).

I use duolingo. Was learning french and repeating german from school, but 2 days ago I lost 12-day streak and lost motivation. xD

Never heard of Mango before, I will look at that. It has some interesting languages...

C0de Academy is a cool free game with a pretty long main campaign and many expansions.

It is a lot better than Genghis Khan Academy...


**Profile Pic comes from this site... Yeah, just my gravatar with my 1k pts on top.**

Lexilogos is a good looking site to learn latin and stuff.

Also played Forex Trading Demo for like 1-2 days. I lost all my stocks/funds. :(

If it is cool game, I may join your site.
Don't really know any other edutainment site.

For french, CNRTL is the best dictionary evar.

Created by the same folks that created IRIS and all other research think-panthertanks.

It is like using Wolfram to produce 8th dimension graphs to find where best to invest your stocks.
CNRTL is really over-kill. It has more definitions than other french dictionaries and conventional ones (Le Petit Robert).

Office de la Langue Française does a few things like CNRTL. But CNRTL is the best resource evar1234!!!


CNRTL is a research thing so I think they also offer NLP resources. So after 1 million years, you can program your bot to do homeworks for you in french...

I recently went to Costa Rica to minister to some orphan kids. Many of those kids still had parents, but had merely been taken away from them because they were horrible pieces of shit. Most of the orphans were teenage girls. You know why? I'm sure you could guess, but I'll tell you anyway: their dads sold their bodies for money. They're not at the orphanage because they have no parents, they're at the orphanage because their lives are in danger. No one loves them, no one gives them the time of day. Not even their caretakers. They just do what's necessary to keep them alive, and that's it.
I didn't exactly feel too happy about the fact that I got the chance to show these kids some love, and I didn't even speak their language.
It was made worse when this little girl (probably 5 or 6 years old) came and asked me (with the help of a translator, obviously) if I was coming back. I promised her I would, and I fully intend to be able to talk to her when I do. So you can say it's some stupid fad if you want, but I have a legitimate reason. Can't exactly show a sad, unloved orphan that someone cares with the help of chemistry or biology.

So it offers two highly influential languages, but not an artificial construct which no one ever spoke natively.

Am I the only who doesn't use applications? I just talk to people whether online or at work. Listening to foreign radio/television works incredibly well too. I highly reccommend RFI.fr le journal dans français facile for those who are pioneers in the French language. It worked in my younger days.

I would very much prefer a tutor, but no mucho dineros. I'm doing the best I can with Spanish-speaking friends helping me out, Spanish music, and Spanish-learning apps. I'm about to try out a course that supposedly is the same thing used to teach US diplomats foreign languages in as little as 25 weeks, so I'm hoping that's effective.

Well, in school systems, there is "immersion" (student exchange for organs).

There is also correspondence à distance.
Google search for those terms gave me as one of top results : http://roget.biz/9-reseaux-sociaux-pour-apprendre-les-langues-et-echanger-avec-des-natifs


You can do Google English Translate in Chrome.
Basically, there are sites on the internet for correspondence à distance in foreign language that work on the same principle as couch surfing (the bed-mafia guys/girls).

----

Peer-to-peer
or
Tutoring

is a powerful method.

----

Or trying skyping.
Or integrating into Spanish communities, like spanish MMOs. :/

I played one/some MMOs with many portuguese people (significative chunk).


Or maybe some spanish open forums.

two tongues that noone speaks but folk still learn to be posh, or one tongue which likely outdoes them both which gives to the greater good if you learn. Some do speak Esperanto natively btw which is more than can be said for "Latin" or "Dead Greek". the only reason folk learn these tongues is 1. foreign wordstock (which is just the same if you learn Spanish or French or modern Greek) and 2. reading some books in their root tongues (ok maybe this part they win but not by much)

Yeah, esperanto was made to combine all the language into one.
So it is like learning 1% of every language.


Languages like chinese didn't exist during this time. This is why the creator didn't try to include it somehow.
