Apa kabar semua,

Lama tidak datang untuk menulis sesuatu dalam Bahasa Indonesia. Saya menyadari bahawa kalo tidak selalu menulis majalah seperti ini, barangkali akan lupa banyak bahasa indonesia...ya? Hari2 ini saya tidak begitu belajar bahasa indonesia karena, masih ada bahasa lain yang saya ingin mulai belajar. Saya pikir yang, asli menulis sesuatu dalam majalah saya, bisa latihan bahasa lebih baik. Bagaimana anda pikir tentang hal ini?

Saya juga harap akan ada orang yang mampu bicara bahasa indonesia lancar sekali untuk bantu saya belajar bahasa ini. Karena, saya tahu yang masih ada salah dalam bahasa saya saja. Terima Kasih atas datang sini membaca majalah saya semua.

Being a good language teacher

Yesterday I made a video response to Steven Kaufman's video regarding being a good language teacher. I thought it was a great topic to talk about. Being a good language teacher takes a special kind of skill that one will have developed after gaining experience studying a language independantly. During this process one will be able to learn what it takes to effectively learn a language when motivated. This is something that can't be taught in school because they go about teaching foreign languages in a different way. The only way one can obtain this type of skill is through serious independant language study. I think this is why I'm able to teach a language to an individual effectively and at the same time, make them very motivated to learn the language. I never thought I would someday help, show others how to learn languages effectively; especially learning the language independantly. This is something anyone can do as long as they are doing it the right way.

Traditional Textbook Utilization Methods

I've recently made a video on utulizing textbooks in the traditional way. Before making that video, I was asking myself if it would be ok to make that video because I wasn't sure if anyone would understand that type of approach. To many it may seem unrothodox, but I feel that it is a very efficient way for utilizing the textbook. I would basically take a course like TY(Teach Yourself) or any other type of course and start from chapter one, focusing on the constructions and incorporating those constructions with everything else I've learned. I don't want to contradict myself by saying that we should focus on grammar since I'm no advocate of that. Using this methodology is just giving the student a pretty good idea on how things are constructed. At the same time, these constructions will be incorporated with other things learned previously. As far as vocabulary, you won't memorize every single vocabulary in the chapter. I would choose at least 10 useful words from that chapter to learn and just get familiar with the rest of them. I would sweep through the book after mastering all of the constructions just to play with remaining vocabulary. While in the process of doing this, one should be writing journals every week. This would also increase vocabulary. Utilizing chatrooms for output is another way for building vocabulary. I've tried utilizing the textbook in many different ways, but this one seems to be the most efficient for me.

Burmese Journey

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to write a little something about my Burmese learning journey. I feel very happy to have come back to learning this language. Just a few years back, I purchased several books, preparing to go into Burmese boot camp mode. The biggest problem I had was finding the people to practice with. The resources I purchased were ok, but I think I could've had better ones. I recently purchased a Burmese course from and I'm really enjoying it. It has a thorough explanation on the letters which is something rare to come across. I've also purchased a Cambodian book from the same place, but haven't started on it yet. I will very soon and will most definitely post up a video on the language. I plan to update my Burmese video very soon so stay tuned!

Blog Update

Hello everyone!

I would just like to write something short in my blog. I haven't used it for a while now and I would like to use it more often. I'm thinking of getting some people together for language collaboration. I think it would just be fun to share our ideas with each other. Anyway, I will update my blog more often. To all of my followers, I would just like to apologize for not being here to update this blog. Thanks a lot for all of you guys' support. Take care everyone and continue the language studies!
