    Description

    Hello. Workawayers :)
    My apartment has 3 rooms so I host two guests separately
    So you can meet another guest(s) during your stay

    I can speak 6 languages, English, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and French including my mother tongue. I have learned the Indonesian language for 6 months but I don't want to count it
    My french is the worst among them
    I just started German (20/9/2019)

    I am a very passionate learner, it's like I learn more than 3 hours or 5 hours every single day
    I have studied how to learn any language in scientific ways, so I can explain many things
    I also manage online language courses like English, Chinese, Spanish, and French.
    It means that I have lots of knowledge about how to learn any language and experiences from my students and teachers
    I train my teachers on how to teach their language if they are beginners, and then they become a better teacher.
    So if you are interested in learning languages and you also interested in teaching your language, you're welcome
    If you teach your mother tongue, you might get some benefit as well

    So there are two option

    1. Help my language learning and writing my book
    2. Help my language learning (book) + Teaching other people online while traveling to any other country: You will get some benefit from this

    Either way is fine to me

    I've already helped some foreign people like that

    My goal is not to reach a conversational level, much higher, like a native-like level :)
    So I want to improve my languages, English, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and French
    So please help me with just only your mother tongue (Because I receive many messages from ones who want to try with their second language)

    Work hour : 3 hours' conversation in your language from Monday to Friday
    Or I will ask you to write something or help me write my book.
    I am writing my book in different languages.

    This is some part of my book.

    Tom has slipped over : Tom a glissé

    When you read this sentence, you learn the meaning of the sentence while seeing the image and listening to the sound. When you hear the sound at first, you remember the nearly exact sound so you can mimic it right away. But in a minute you might not remember how to pronounce each word properly. Your memory of the sound fades away quickly and you confuse the accent, rhythm, and pitch. So you need to listen to it again if you want to pronounce it properly.

    This problem happens a lot if the language you learn is a tonal language such as Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai.

    (Picture)

    Slip over is translated to 摔倒 [shuāidǎo] in Chinese. When you hear the sound at first, you are likely to mimic almost the same sound. But in just 10 seconds, the chances to pronounce it correctly are low. You confuse how to pronounce shuai like [shuāi], [shuái] [shuǎi], or [shuài] and also with [dǎo]. However, you can still remember the image and the meaning longer than the sound. You could even remember the phonetic symbols [shuaidao] regardless of having forgotten the intonation. I recommend that you test yourself on this.

    So why can’t we remember the sound as long as the visual and meaning of the words?

    We have assumed that many parts of the brain might be wired all together when we learn something. But it seems to use separate pathways to process information.
    To quote Confucius, you easily forget the sound very quickly. Don’t be surprised. The time span to be able to remember could be on average 3-4 seconds. Researchers at the University of Iowa have said that we don’t remember things we hear as much as we see or touch.
