How do you get rid of polish accent?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

To reduce a Polish accent, focus on pronunciation by practicing minimal pairs (similar words that differ by one sound) and work on specific sounds that are challenging for you. Listening to native Polish speakers and imitating their speech patterns can also help improve your accent. Lastly, keep regular practice and seek feedback from a speech coach or language tutor for additional support.

How do you speak without an accent?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Speaking without an accent is subjective as everyone has their own regional or cultural influences on their speech. Generally, you can aim for clear articulation, proper pronunciation, and a neutral tone. Listening to and mimicking native speakers of a language can help improve your accent. Practice, language classes, or accent reduction courses can also be beneficial.

How do you improve english skills?

Reading books by well-known authors is a good way to improve grammar (simply exposing yourself to the ways people use language helps you improve). Also, practice writing every day (on a blog, for instance) modeling what you notice in the books you read.

Grammar classes are rarely any good because they are acontextual and too formal; it's better to pay a tutor or teacher to read your blog and go over any mistakes with you if you make any.

Why is it bad to learn a second language?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Hi there,

It's not that the kids shouldn't learn a nother languaje as much as they shouldn't learn it at an early age, this is due to the fact that , in their early years they are still learning theyr home language, so in most cases they end up mixing or confusing words, which can result in a slower learning of both languages and/or a mixed language that can be hard to understand, personally i think 9/10 years is a good age to start taking another language

I hope that's the answer you were looking for :P

What is the best way to learn French?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The correct match of teacher, student, and learning toolis the best way to learn French. People have individualistic ways of learning languages. Some do better through intensive study of dictionaries and grammars. Others do better with language laboratories and audio visual methods. Still others do better with 'thinking on your feet'. They'd prefer immersion in conversational courses and in travel abroad.

The best way to learn a language is to surround yourself with people that speak it fluently. If you are not able to do that, just while you are talking try to say a few words you already know in french. Or maybe you should try a good manuel or take some French lessons. Try this link:

What are advantages to learning Spanish?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The advantages are largely the same as learning any other language... the ability to communicate in that language. English might carry a special advantage for people who work or live in an English-speaking country, or who do business in English. The side benefits of being able to understand jokes and read great English literature are there, of course... but those exist in any language, and (depending on how well the language is mastered) sometimes are never fully realized.

How do you speak Bengali?

First, like learning/speaking any language, you must learn vocalbulary and the rules that go along with it. Once the vocalbulary is learned, you then must learn the final, and sometimes most confusing part, the sentence structure. The sentence structure of a language is the order in which words/vocalbulary are placed in sentence. In Hindi, ALL subjects go first, ALL Verbs go at the end of the sentence, and everything else (adjectives, prepositions, etc.) goes in the middle of the sentence.

For example: Main khush hoon= I am happy.

"Main" (pronunced like the month, may) is the Hindi word for "I". Since "I" is the subject of the sentence, it goes first in the sentence. Next is the word "khush" (proncounced koosh), which is the Hindi word for "happy". Since it is an adjective, it goes in the middle of the sentence. Last we have "hoon". "Hoon" is the Hindi word for "am". Since "am" is a verb, it goes at the end of the sentence. This is how Hindi is spoken.

How do you speak Swahili?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

To learn to speak any language requires study. Language-learning tips range from using websites and software all the way to living in a foreign country. The truth is, living among the native speakers is really the most effective way of learning; however, few people have the money or opportunity to do this.

Here are some useful phrases in Swahili from Omniglot, as well as some background information:

Welcome Karibu (sg) Karibuni (pl)

Hello (General greeting) Habari (inf) Hujambo (sg) Hamjambo (pl)

With a handful of exceptions,all words in Swahili are pronounced with the accent on the next-to-last syllable.

Swahili is of the Niger-Congo language family, specifically of the Bantu language group. The earliest documents that have been preserved that were written in the Swahili language are a series of letters written in 1711. These letters were written in Kilwa, to the Portuguese of Mozambique. They were written using the Arabic alphabet, while these days the Latin alphabet is more commonly used.

The Swahili word for Swahili is "Kiswahili", which comes from the Arabic word meaning coast. In this context, it is used to mean coastal dwellers, and when referring to the language it means coastal language. There are many dialects of the Swahili language, and it is difficult to say when or where exactly the language emerged as the defined language that we know today. However, it has been in the last two hundred years that the Swahili language has become so widely used.

Yes, it is. You can learn another language to communicate with others who do no know your main language. If your first language is English, but this person you are talking to does not know English you can speak to him in a language that person knows like maybe he knows Chinese and your second just happens to be Chinese.

Through reading you can learn new vocabulary words to use when writing, reading can inspire you to write something, and it can expose you to new styles you may never have heard of but like. Or, as you get more experience, you can see which styles and strategies of writing are the most popular or most powerful, and you can try to use some yourself.

How do you speak pawnee?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

You can not speak Iroquois, since there is no single language of that name. The Iroquois tribes each spoke their own different language and collectively these are members of the Iroquoian language family, just like Erie and Huron (among others).

Although the Iroquoian languages are closely related they are certainly not the same, as the following examples show:





So it is clear that nobody can "speak Iroquois", but they can learn to speak Oneida (Onyota'aka), Onondaga (Onoñdaʔgegáʔ nigaweñoʔdeñʔ), Mohawk (Kanien'kéha), Seneca (Onödowága or Onötowáka) or Cayuga (Gayogo̱hó:nǫ').

These are among the most difficult of all languages for an English speaker to learn, since there are so many non-English sounds and combinations of sounds which English speakers struggle to pronounce. These are represented by special characters in writing those native words. The Cayuga term for drifted snow, for example, is onyęˀgwaohǫh; this includes the non-English sounds ę, ˀ, and ǫ.
