New phrases page
There’s a new phrases page on Omniglot – Please say that again – how to ask people to repeat something that you didn’t understand or hear clearly. A very useful phrase when you’re learning a language. Could you let me know if you spot any mistakes or have translations into other languages?
Yesterday Owen Lee very kindly sent me a complimentary copy of his book Ultimate Language Secrets for review (感谢你!). Owen promises that the book will help “slash the time, effort and money” involved in learning languages, help you to avoid “blunders” made by most language learners, and to master any language in as little as 6 months.
Owen, who speaks Shanghainese, Mandarin, English, German, Dutch and Spanish, has tested all the suggestions in his book thoroughly and is very confident they will work for others.
I’ve just started reading it, will let you know how I get on.
