Foreign language studies. We’re starting Japanese and I’m beginning to wonder what I got myself into 🤯(help!). We’re slowly learning the two main character sets (hiragana/katakana) first with printables and also help with the Duolingo app. Anyone have any tips for language learning with kiddos?
Bad news about Swedish: pitch accent matters.. 😒 What is pitch accent? Well, I’m no linguist but it has to do with..how you say the word? Two words, spelled exactly the same, but said differently? All I know is I mostly get it wrong, and I only learn from hearing the word aloud 7000 times as opposed to the standard 7.. (is it standard at 7? I really don’t know. Maybe?) This is really a perfect example of how I am not a Swedish tutor! And have no idea what I’m talking about beyond being able to identify difficulties. 👍So, with that tip, good luck! May you fare better than us. 😊Edit: see below for an actual Swedish tutor’s actual clarification about all of this! I warn you it involves ‘prosody’ which sounds like another fun aspect which probably also stinks....😊 #illustration#illustrate#draw#doodle#dagensord#wordoftheday#sweden#swedish#sverige#svenska#svenskaspråket #learningswedish#rumpa#languagestudy
