Question about Catalan

Com la puc fer més llarga? Algú em pot donar alguna cosa per fer-la més llarga?Ho dic per donar-la ha aquelles persones que volen estudiar el català.

D’on prové el català? I com puc aprendre’l?

El català prové del llatí parlat pels romans. És, per tant, una llengua romànica, igual que el castellà, el gallec, el francès, i l’italià, entre d’altres. Ara bé, la base de les llengües romàniques és el llatí vulgar o popular, és a dir, el llatí parlat, més que no pas el llatí escrit, culte o literari.

El llatí és, doncs, l’element essencial dels orígens de la llengua catalana. Però hi hagué altres llengües que també intervingueren en la seva formació i desenvolupament.

Abans de l’arribada dels romans. Elements preromans: sorotapte, celta, fenici,grec, iberobasc.
Segles V-VIII. Llengües aràbigues i germàniques. Etapa de formació de la llengua.
Segles X-XI… Sobretot occità i castellà, i més endavant: italià, francès, llengües ameríndies i actualment anglès. Són influències posteriors, un cop formada la llengua.

A continuació; trobareu algunes pàgines web i recursos per estudiar el català. Al mateix fer voldria conèixer les pàgines que utilitzeu per estudiar l'idioma i les dificultats que esteu trobant. Ja ser que de vegades pot ser molt difícil trobar algú que et contesti en aquesta llengua, a més per aquells que són castellanoparlants.Sí de veritat voleu aprendre el català,només hi ha una manera eficaç i és amb català.

Un consell que us puc donar es que cada vegada que coneixeu alguna paraula nova, apuntar-se aquella paraula unes quantes vegades perquè no se us oblidi.

Aquí deixo les meves pàgines webs!

Moltes gràcies per endavant!

Recorda: La millor manera d’aprendre català es començant amb coses conegudes, com poden ser l’himne del Barça o l’himne dels Segadors. M'agradaria recomanar l'ús de la wikipedia en català ja que és una pàgina web que està molt bé per aprendre diferents idiomes.

Salut, independència i força!
Sé que aquesta llista encara no és perfecta!

Who can help me teach English?

I don't know if I can help you teach English, but I can give you some ideas to teach your students.

The only way to learn English is by speaking English.

There are many ways that you can teach yourself English and practise English. Listen to and speak English every day, and read and write English every day. Using English every day will help you to learn English faster.

Set all the devices you have – iPhone, laptop, and others – to English. And set the websites and social media you’re using to English – like Google, Facebook, and any other website that you can change the language on. If you want to study British English, make sure it’s set to English (UK).

Grammarly. Put Grammarly on your devices. You can get the Grammarly app free. It will check your grammar and help you to learn English. There is also a premium version of Grammarly that you can pay for and it has a few extra features, but I only have the free version and I like it.

Dictionary. You need a good English dictionary. I like the Oxford Learner's Dictionary. You can listen to a native speaker pronounce each word.
• Learn to pronounce ANY English word!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umkqPSeJUrs
• Oxford Learner’s Dictionaries
http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/us/

The Oxford Learner’s Dictionary was made for English learners, but I use it all the time because I like it. I can listen to the pronunciation of any word and I like the clear, simple meanings. And it has other features that I use all the time. It gives verb tenses, idioms, and other information.
And I keep the Paperback Oxford English Dictionary on my desk.

Grammar in Use. Get the books "Essential Grammar in Use" and "English Grammar in Use" by Raymond Murphy. These books will help you learn English grammar.

Vocabulary. When you’re learning new words, it’s helpful to say each word out loud. Try to use the word in a sentence. Imagine that you’re talking to someone and using that word.

Post-it notes. You can write the English words and stick them on the things in your house. It can be anything – door, wall, table, chair, bed, kitchen. You should do this for anything that is hard for you to remember, and anything that you've just learnt. This will help you to remember the English words for things that you see every day.

Flashcards. Flashcards are useful for learning new words. You can buy flashcards or make your own.
https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=flash+card...

YouTube. YouTube is a great tool for learning languages. There are many English teachers on YouTube, and there are news videos and fun videos that you can watch. And there are videos that give tips about how you can improve your English.

I can’t say it strongly enough – reading, writing, speaking and listening to English every day are so important!

And I have many more ideas if you want me to post them.


Reading

Reading is a great way to increase your English vocabulary. Read any book in English that you’ve already read in your native language. You already know what is happening, so you will understand more of the English because of the context.
Here are nine great novels that are recommended to help improve your English.
https://www.english.com/blog/9-great-novels-hel...

Reading a book while you're listening to the audiobook is great because you can hear how the word is pronounced while you’re looking at it.

Writing

You can keep a diary or a notebook in English. Writing in English will give you good practice. And writing what you have learned about English will help you to remember it.

Speaking

Speaking to someone who’s fluent in English every day is the best way to learn to speak and understand English. They can be a native English speaker or another English learner. Speak English whenever you can. Are you taking an English class? Always speak to your classmates in English when you're in class and when you're not in class. Do you have a dog? Talk to your dog in English. Do you have a friend? Teach your friend how to speak English.

If you don't have any of these, or if your friend doesn't want to learn English, talk to yourself in English. Now, I know that talking to yourself sounds mental (crazy, insane), but it really will help you. Talk to yourself while you're going to work. Talk to yourself while you’re shopping. Talk to yourself while you're doing housework. Talk to yourself while you’re having a shower. Talk to yourself in English all the time. It will help you remember what you've learned.

Listening

There are many English teachers on YouTube. Find one you like and listen to them. I will give you a few of my favourites, but there are many others and you should find one who you like. Here are some of the best English teachers on YouTube.
• Aly (Papa English, Learn English with Papa Teach Me)
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwk6ifONlkvqno...
• Emma (mmmEnglish)
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrRiVfHqBIIvSg...

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz4tgANd4yy8Oe...
• Vicki & Jay (Simple English Videos)
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCskz5P7AEEVieG...

You can listen to any English video on YouTube. Find a channel in English that you like and subscribe to it. Listening to an English channel that you like will help you learn how to talk in English about the things you like.

Listening to the news in English is great because they speak slightly more formal English.

• BBC News
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC16niRr50-MSBw...
• Sky News
https://www.youtube.com/user/skynews

Listening to comedians in English is a great way to learn vocabulary and hear natural pronunciation because they make jokes about many different subjects and they speak the way people speak every day. And if you think the joke is funny when you know you’ve understood the English. (I know I should list only three or four examples, but there are so many of them that I find hilarious!)
