You should’ve learnt Spanish from any country in Latin America (except for Chile and Argentina) instead of Spanish from Spain. There’s nothing worse than a lisp in Spanish. The “th” sound doesn’t even exist in the Spanish language Edit: But all that aside, nice Spanish anyway 👍🏼

Hey youre australian? I am Australian too. But I was born and live in Bangkok, making me not good at English lol. but I love learning English and bahasa too! (Bahasa Indonesian, not Malay). I still make a lot of mistakes but I got a lot of fun while studying, especially when learning bahasa. Saya menyukai cara kamu melafalkan bahasa, sangat bagus dari saya yang masih baru wkwk.

Cool! I'm assuming that means you grew up speaking Thai. Lucky! I've heard it's hard to learn as a second language because of the tones... ?

I love Marco's channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJQoQ-pZN9yNDGFryOm02BQ And this one is helpful for grammar: https://www.youtube.com/user/Oneworlditaliano You can also look for online teachers on websites such as italki, Verbling and Cambly. All the best!

Hi max ! I enjoyed « dans la chambre de l’autre chien «  . I speak French and Arabic very well . Berbère is my maternal language . I would like to speak English fluently . And some Spanish too . I have watched your video about the 10 difficult English words . It was interesting . Before it was the chaos in my head ( mind ?) . Now particularly I know how I pronounce syringe ,miscellaneous , thermometer , and others . Thanks so much and congratulations for your videos

Hi! Nice to see you here! :) Did you put the subtitles on? One of the words I said to the police was completely made up! (Well... I said "Einbrechung" instead of "Einbruch". But at least they got the point. :D I also once made one of my flatmates laugh by leaving a note that said: "Der Reparierman ist gekommen." A bit of Denglish there...) In any case, thanks for watching! :)

Wie lange bist du in Deutschland
English with Max (2 months ago)
Danke schoen! I started when I was 14, then I went to Germany when I was 20. My grammar was very good before I went, but my vocabulary wasn't great. That improved over time. But I also made sure that I lived with other Germans, and I would almost always look up words that I didn't know (and I often wrote them down in a notebook). I hope that helps!

Rick Jones (5 months ago)
Dear Max, I very much appreciated your presentation. The only language that you and I have in common besides English is Spanish. I was very impressed with your Spanish. Your grammar in general was good as well as your pronunciation. It was very clear and understandable which is a lot more than I can say for a lot of native speakers of Spanish. LOL ! I have studied French, German and Italian previously but not at a very high level. Your French seems impeccable and your accent was suburb. I was quite impressed with your grasp of Indonesian. I was hoping that you would tell us something about the challenge. I have been told that the grammar is simple but the vocabulary is quite foreign. I speak Russian and Czech and understand Slovak and Polish. I would highly recommend to you a Slavic language. It is a challenge to an English speaker person like yourself. The grammar has a case system like Latin but no articles like German. Hooray ! The lexicon is a challenge for the beginner as well as pronunciation. But it is quite worthwhile. Hopefully, in future videos you can share your language learning strategies. I am quite sure that you have a lot to teach us.
English with Max (5 months ago)
Hi Rick, Thank you very much for your lovely comment! Yes, you're right. Indonesian grammar is relatively simple (although it gets more complicated in formal language), but the vocabulary is quite different compared to the other languages I've learnt. I would love to study a Slavic language at some stage... The only difficulty is finding the time! In my playlist "English Tips" I share a few strategies for language learning. I hope to add to it in the future!

And actually I'm learning Italian too, it's a nice language, and I think it's easy for me 'cause is so close to Spanish. I hope learn German too.

Nossa, nossa! Hahaha.Our stories are quite similar. Because I loved languages, I was aiming at interpreting for a while. Then I realized that headache interpretin causes. I don’t function in two languages. One or the other. My languages are French and Spanish (schooled), Italian, Japanese, 2 ounces of Brazilian pre-Olympics, but mostly spoke Spanugese and a sprinkle of Korean.

Claire Gittens Haha, so we both became ESL teachers! 😀 I wish you all the best with it!

Thank you! I’d totally forgotten the pressure to know a little bit of everything. And yes, I did find something, ESL in Japan. Hopefully my own company some day.
English with Max (5 months ago)
Claire Gittens Wow, that's awesome! The worst thing for me was the stress when you weren't actually interpreting ;). I.e. This pressure to be constantly working on your languages and keeping abreast of current events. I hope you found your calling in something else! 😀

English with Max (6 months ago)
It depends on how intensely you study and what level you're aiming for. If you study consistently and are able to practise your speaking on a regular basis, I'd say you could get quite fluent in 3 years or so. But like I said, it depends on various factors.
