anybody read this?
i didn’t pick it to read right now nah i totes had a change mind so yeah i am reading it, but some input would be kind of nice because, well, it seems a tad odd
the way it’s set up
it was mentioned quite a few times in my internet perusing, and a lot of people were talking about how long/hard (i’ve been reading for 7 months…) of a read it is so of course i had to buy it
and i mean, it’s a big book, gotta be at least 500 pages (i didn’t check) but
just
let me show you




















so yeah
any input you can give me on what i’m getting myself into here would be cool

This is the best book i have ever read, it took months to read it and i couldnt even finish it the second time round, i seriously recomend it though

This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more. 
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.

I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for? 
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.

Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson. 
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.

And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE. 
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

I want to learn Spanish.

Duolingo rocks. I used it to brush up on my Spanish before my medical trip to South America last year. I still play with it when I have time.

update: Irish and Danish now available

try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.
don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…
Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.
be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?
"you can do it, wildcat, i believe in u" — something troy bolton said one time probably definitely

Anonymous: Hi mellisa, I want to download some apps on my iPad to help me with studying and organizing things. Do you have any app recommendation? Thanks!

hexaneandheels:

Yes, definitely! Some of these I don’t personally use anymore, but they’re still good. Most of these work for iPhone and iPad, but there are a few exclusively iPad ones.

  • Mindly - The full version is so worth it, btw. It’s for mindmapping. Plenty of features.
  • Quizlet - …or Evernote Flip if you have a compatible cover. Flashcards, of course.
  • iBooks - Comes with the iPad, I think, but load up the PDF textbooks!
  • iTunes U - Also comes with iPad, I think, but has great lectures from all over.
  • Pronto - It might not be free anymore, but it’s a great to-do app.
  • 30/30 - A pomodoro app that’s super easy to use.
  • Now Then - Also might not be free, but it allows you to record how long certain tasks take so you can plan more efficient studying. (Though you can easily do this manually with a stopwatch app, too.)
  • Recordium - It’s an audio recorder if that wasn’t obvious. I use it to record myself reading summaries I’ve written so I can listen to them when I’m walking around campus. There are other recording apps that work fine, too.
  • iStudiez Pro - The pro version is obviously paid, but it is really useful. It syncs with your calendars showing you a daily or montly schedule with your assignments. You can also put in information about professors and calculate your grades. I’ve never tried the grades thing, personally.
  • Reminders - Comes with all Apple devices, yes. But don’t forget it’s there! It’s simple and does what it needs to.
  • Apps Gone Free - The apps I said might not be free anymore are paid ones I found for free on this app. It features a wide variety of apps (including games) but I’ve found a number of great studying/productivity/organization apps. New apps every day.

If I think of more I might edit this list.
