Spanglish 3.0 – Offline Dictionary To Learn English

This is going to be a short video where I want to talk about a dictionary that is extremely useful for people who speak Spanish and that are learning English. This simple dictionary works on a Windows PC and has several advantages that make it very convenient. For example, it can recognize if the word that you are looking for, has the form of a 3rd person, past, superlative, progressive or plural. When showing the results, the dictionary gives all the possible translations to Spanish of the word in English that we want to know its translation. It has a database of thousands and thousands of words that it can recognize without the necessity of being connected to the Internet. Something else, when you write a word that the dictionary doesn’t recognize, it offers several possible alternatives in the results window that are pretty accurate. Even being a very old software and sadly discontinued, it is a tool that for me was fundamental during my learning process of the English language.

Steve Kaufmann’s Channel Review

This is one of the videos that I really wanted to make because I’m going to talk about one of my mentors in my English learning process. In the 5th video I talked in a pretty general manner about polyglots, those amazing people that are able to speak several languages without too much difficulty, and that it’s possible to think that they have special powers or something like that. The truth is that in real life, it’s very difficult to have the opportunity of having a conversation with someone able to speak so many languages, and even harder make that person tell us how he or she does that. But exactly as I said in that video, now that is not necessary, because it can be achieved simply by watching the videos that they share on YouTube. Now I’m going to talk about Steve kaufmann, who I have noted so far, is the most active and constant polyglot on YouTube. I want to make this review focusing in the value he shares to anyone willing to listen to him. Something very important that I want to put clear, es that this video is not to criticize. I am not going to do something like that, simply because I have no right to do it. I am doing it because I want the person who will watch this video feel interested to check Steve’s videos, also to analyze if watching his videos is worth it and to subscribe to his channel if considered that the advices in them are going to be useful.

The Fears Before Starting To Learn English

When the idea of starting to learn English begins to round in your mind, too many times the first impulse is of excitement because you imagine yourself speaking fluently, getting a better job, making foreign friends and doing amazing things. It’s really exciting that first vision that you can have just in the beginning, even more when somebody that already speaks English is telling you all the things that he can do, or when you are being offered an English course, generally the seller tries to create this mental picture to encourage you to pay for the course. And it is true, indeed you are going to be able to do all these things and many more. But… Once you get the first grammar book and after a couple of hours of study the situation is completely different. You start to realize that everything is senseless, that you cannot pronounce the words, that you do not understand anything when people is speaking in English because they speak too quickly and you start to doubt that you can do it. Well, welcome to the club!

Free vs Paid Resources To Learn English

There is a lot of resources that you can find on the Internet that you can use to learn English and you don’t need to pay one cent to do it, but someone really committed to learn English to a higher level, cannot neglect paid resources. This is precisely what I’m going to talk about in this post. So. One of the biggest beliefs is that learning English is too expensive, and yes it may be. Also I’s very likely that the first thing that you will come across when looking for a good English course, is one that is indeed very expensive.
