Hello there, linguaphiles.
I am looking for someone who has experience with Southeast Asian languages and, if possible, anyone who has any resources or perhaps can give a few pointers about Burmese and Tibetan languages. If there are some of you out there, is there anything you could tell me about how to begin or where to begin studying these languages, what college programs offer decent classes, and also, does anyone have experience teaching English to speakers of these two regions? (Grant it, extremely unlikely)
I am currently looking into volunteer prospects and experience in public health and also TEFL, and I have a sincere interest in learning more about the cultures and languages of this part of of the world (also including Thai, Vietnamese, and Khmer) and am trying to find a good starting point (and am getting a little lost in the lack of good learing material here). Also, I am curious as to how a background in Chinese might help while learning one of the above mentioned languages (for example, Vietnamese)
I know that SEAsian languages are far less commonly taught... and also not as often discussed in this community, but I was just hoping someone out there might have some information (textbooks/grammar guides would also be great). Thank you!
Hello there, linguaphiles.
What exactly is meant by "los comicos" here? Was Bardem's mother in fact a comedian, or does "comicos" refer to all actors in a popular tradition (as opposed to classically-trained tragedians) and even more broadly to TV and movie actors in general?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Thanks in advance! :)
Here they are:
Hodie Proponitur Quem In Sacrae Mensa Coenae
(i know Hodie is Today, Quem is Man, and Mensa is Table but I'm not certain about the rest)
Regem Adoremus Dominitem
Tantum Aude, Quantum Potes, Quia Major Omni Laude
Laudis Thema Specialis Panis Vivus et Vitalis
(I'm assuming Panis is Bread, Vivus is Life, and Vitalis is Vitality)
Duodenae Datum Non Amibigitur
Any help, even if you can only give me a few words, would be greatly appreciated!
I think the Portuguese for "congratulations" is "felicitacoes" or something like that, but I've got no clue where the diacritics go and how to pronounce it, so if any of you could give me a useful sort of canned phrase along with some kind of indication of how to say it (my sister doesn't speak Portuguese well either, so he's presumably not expecting anything too spectacular), I'd be very grateful indeed.
The sort of thing I'd want to say is something like "Congratulations on your visa" or "...on your arrival", or even potentially "...on your recovery" (he's been ill for a while) or "Welcome to the family". If there's a brilliant idiomatic phrase people say on this sort of occasion in Portuguese, I'm all ears.
I don't imagine anyone here would know anything in the Mozambican dialect, but all the better if you do.
I was just awarded an internship in Brazil (woo woo!) and I need to brush up on my listening skills. Does anyone know of any good online Brazilian radio stations and/or podcasts? Music stations would be preferable (and probably easier to find), but news or talk radio would be even better.
I need to know if a woman named Keiko Abe teaches there, if they have a true percussion program and what it's like, and basically anything else you can tell me. I know this is probably a lot to ask and I wouldn't post this if I didn't really need help.
