hello everyone and trying to learn spanish

Postby survivingIncelMan » Mon Apr 06, 2015 3:41 pm

Hello all, I am the writer of Surviving Incel blog. some of you might actually read it. As a short chubby Chinaman from the department of engineering living in the USA, its needless to say I am not loaded with options in the dating scene. I agree any decent self respecting man would desire to leave America and strike a brighter future abroad. I am making this post to say hello and I am wondering if there are any good online/language programs to learn spanish from? any help is appreciated and good to meet all of you

Your blog looks interesting. I have noticed a new phenomenon in America. Type A successful White females with beta nerdy Asia guys. This dynamic works because the girls can work all the time and the men are smart, make money, and don't demand much from the women.

Why not go to China for women? Let me know what Spanish learning material you find. I am going to start playing on this group.

Hello Surviving Incel Man, I just checked out your blog, you have some interesting articles on it. As far as learning Spanish, there are some good course you can purchase online. I know some guys who have taken Spanish classes at community colleges and learned quite a bit of Spanish from just taking one course.

Glad you found our forum and make sure you avoid American women like you would avoid the Ebola virus! :P

How much Spanish do you know currently? Have you ever traveled to a Latin country? I've tried Rosetta Stone before and also tried classes and studying out of a book. I found each choice lacking severely in various ways. I think travel and immersion are the best ways to learn a language - really learn what people speak. The social aspect isn't just helpful - it's critical. The way I would do it is study some at home first before traveling. Start with basic vocabulary, then study about 50-100 grammatical words (conjunctions, preposition, etc.) before adding new vocabulary in. Then travel and use your base, while building it up.

I'm living in Spain (well Catalunia) now and I like the total immersion approach. Every day I hear words and I make a habit of reading as many street posters and things as I can. I'm not making much of an effort to learn Spanish, but I am picking it up.

For me (sorry about that piece of Spanglish) the best way to learn in your own country is to watch lots of Spanish movies. Watching Anime was a great way to learn Japanese!

Is it too late to offer advice? I've been studying some Spanish, but I've been slacking off lately. I need to pick back up on it when I have time. I can show a couple of places you can go to. You can try a channel called Culture Alley on YouTube. Here is the playlist of the videos.

You can also go to the site to learn more Spanish. If you want to watch more videos past level 27, you'll have to make an account. It's free too. But besides the videos, there is also an English to Spanish dictionary on the site at the following link.

http://culturealley.com/dictionary/english-to-spanish.jsp

If you need more material, I recommend the Rocket Spanish e-books and audio material, which you can download from Pirate Bay. :D
I'll pick up on my studies eventually. I'm planning to go to Maturin, Venezuela to see my girlfriend. Anyways, I hope this helps and good luck on your journey.

Recientemente, completé mi curso de español para hablantes de inglés de Duolingo. ¿Hay alguien a quien gustaría practicar español conmigo?
