Hi!
I like to learn computer languages as well as people language, like english, spanish, etc.
I'm from Brazil and my main language is portuguese. I can talk in english, I understand a bit of spanish (it's similar to portuguese) and i'm studying german at school. I've began learning Serbian at a web site. Laughing

I'm interessed in Polish, Russian and other languages.

So let's share links to web sites where we can learn languages! Very Happy
Learn serbian here: http://www.serbianschool.com/

Share your links and also if you like, talk about your country! Very Happy

Very good website for verb conjugations: www.verbix.com

I find it extremely useful and interesting.

Another good site is http://wordreference.com/.

Wikibooks have textbooks for several languages, for example, Russian. If you have questions about Russian language, please ask me (I'm a native speaker).

I tried to learn Polish, unsuccesfully Sad it is really complex. There are so many rules to follow... I think this is one of the reasons the Poles are so good at learning other languages (including computer languages) and including the creation of languages: esperanto, fasm...

There's a scientific study that says that learning languages is good to develop some kinds of intelligences. I think you're right. If some person can talk in a very complex language, maybe he'll find easy to do computer programming also.
Languages are good for developing logical thinking, mental associations and memorizing.

Well, people say that portuguese is really complex. I can teach someone if interessed. Just send me a PM and I'll send my MSN.
It could be great to have friends from other countries.

pelaillo: If you found hard to learn polish, I guess I'll find it hard too. Because portuguese is similar to spanish. We must have the same language base. Wink

There's a Spanish CD collection (8 CDs) from Michael Thomas - it very good because he teaches through English which is very similar so you can learn quicker if you knew English. In my opinion you have to be very good in English to link these two languages. Even better when its your native.
I've learnt English 13 years extensively and its a bit out of my league Smile but someonw might find it useful. Just google about it...and of course there are online free Spanish lessons that are also googlable, I haven't researched which is best.

The third option is to listen to Spanish songs - there are many advantages. For starters many words are repeated and you will finally get how they are used consequently - though a bit poeticly - that isn't a big problem. The second thing is that you will notice words that rhyme and this is what will link the best in your head like "corazon" and "amor" heart and love respectively rhyme and they are practically the same thing Very Happy "corazon" is the source of "amor" etc.

OzzY: yes, I can read portuguese but is harder to understand hearing it because of pronunciation (very nice actually)

there is need to find good learning resource or textbook. it is hard to learn without systema, just trying reading with dictionary or in conversation. But conversation with native speeker is very usefull as he has to understand even wrong centences and point errors. Learning second language will make easier learning third, etc. i think.

There are a lot of free online textbooks for learning languages; just search them with Google!

In a minute, I found several sites with free Russian online lessons, including a nice site about Russian grammar (highly recommended), another one with several courses, and the third one having only basic information about the language, but still useful.

You can start learning with textbooks, and then talk with native speakers to clarify your doubts about words' meaning, to improve your pronunciation and spelling.

If you can reach a native speaker only by e-mail or Web, then try listening to songs, watching movies and TV shows. Many Russian people learn English by watching American movies, and I once heard of a boy who got a good British pronunciation by listening to BBC broadcasts for one year. You can study colloquial expressions and regional accents this way, as the movies and soap operas show the people with different speech in close-to-real situations.
