Romanian I

Happy Saturday everyone! This week we will have something a little unusual: we will start and finish a whole new language in this video. It’s Romanian! The reason is that there are very few words in English that have been borrowed from Romanian, so we will just look at those words in this video instead of going through complex rules (because if we know all the words, then there is no need for any rules, right?!) Also, by the way, the song that I mentioned in this video is “Dragostea Din Tei” by O-Zone. It’s a good tune!

If you’re learning from, watching, and enjoying these videos, then I please request you to help me with my water fundraiser. Summer is causing a lot of heat all over the globe, so ANY donation is absolutely welcome and so very appreciated. Please click here to donate.

Polynesian Languages III

Hi everyone! Happy May! This week we will finish up our rules for Polynesian Languages. The third installment of this set of videos wraps up the vowel sounds which we started last week and takes a look at some consonant rules. Again, you will find that the consonant rules for Hawaiian, Samoan, Tahitian, and Maori are rather simple and phonetic — which is a good thing! Enjoy!

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday and beginning of spring! In this video, we will wrap up our discussion about Chinese by revisiting the ten sample words we saw in the first video. Again, Chinese is a pretty simple language without too many intricate spelling rules. Enjoy!

Chinese III

Happy Saturday everyone! In the third installment of Chinese, we will finish up our Chinese vowels (looking at “O” and U”) and will also cover consonant sounds in Chinese. There aren’t many consonant rules as most sounds are spelled how they would sound in normal English. Enjoy!

Chinese II

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is doing well! This week we will delve right into the rules of Chinese, starting with the vowels. In this video, we will cover the vowel sounds relating to “a”, “e”, and “i.” Chinese vowels tend to be simple and consistent, so that is a big plus for us! Enjoy!

Chinese I

Happy Saturday to all! This week we will begin our journey into the exotic language of Chinese! Chinese words are not too common at spelling bees, and they also contain very simple and easy-to-remember spelling rules. In this first video, we will learn about the history and background of the language (it certainly is a very old language) and about its interaction with English. Then we’ll take a look at ten sample words from Chinese. Enjoy!
