Language Learning

After vowing that at some point I'll speak more languages I decided to study pashto (long list of odd coincidences account for the choice), and then realized that before that I should really become proficient in the languages I've already started to study, namely French and Japanese - mainly because it also implies learning a new alphabet. So, in the meantime, I'm shelving this links as well as a couple of Android apps that might work.

¡Aprenda las palabras más importantes en pastún! at 17 Minute Languages, where you obviously can pay for more extensive courses, and there are a lot of other languages.
Aprender Pashtu at ilanguages, very basic too but with some grammar.


Language Exchange Community MyLanguageExchange.com: penpals, chats, voice chats, word games, etc.; plenty of language pairs to choose from - I'm thinking on signing up if only to practise English.

App/site combos I intend to check:
Anki (shared decks and AnkiWeb sync too)

Also, trying to re-acquaint myself with Japanese kana, these sites:
Aprende el silabario Hiragana! at Alfabetos.net, where you can choose the lg, and there are several sources for each one (including Japanese)
JGram: The Japanese Grammar Database - an interactive community; learn by communicating, sharing knowledge, and talking between Japanese and non-native speakers

HAVE A NICE DAY

Not the first and not the last BON JOVI gem I'll add. Also, I'll tighten up the format soon.


Have A Nice Day - Bon Jovi

Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy lived the lie, that's just the price that he paid
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day

Take a look around you; nothing's what it seems
We're living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
Anybody brave enough to take a stand,
I've knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
Looking for forgiveness,
what's left to believe?

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

[Guitar Solo]

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
I gotta raise my hands, I'm gonna stand my ground.
Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day
Have A Nice Day
