Hi! I've pivoted from learning Tagalog since I'm already at an OK level. I've started dabbling in Arabic and Hebrew. My plan of action is to learn how I always do... comprehensible input with grammar study on the side.


For Arabic, I'm using:

  1. Assimil 2015 Arabic (English Edition book)
  2. Glossika MSA (Web App)
  3. Glossika Egyptian (Web App)
  4. Arabicpod101's offerings
  5. I've converted my anki into a passive input mode. I'll explain more in an update post.

For Hebrew:

  1. Glossika Hebrew (Web App)
  2. teachmehebrew.com (Website) They have 15 dialogues and 30 sentence lessons similar to what learners get here from the languagetools.io official courses.
  3. Not advanced enough yet but it appears that languagetools.io has a few very active Hebrew users so the library is already super stuffed! Will use it later.
  4. Again, passive Anki. Will explain later

How I Glossika / ASSIMIL / LT.IO-ify my Anki cards.


First get this addon: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/631932779

Secondly get your cards set up to have audio, target language, translation one one side, and a blank back side. Set it to flip and let it go, its that simple. If you want to cram and go longer, open a custom study deck and review ahead or add new cards. If you want listening comprehension checks, just reverse the order. Add audio on the front, target language + translation/romanization on the back. Easy, peasy.

That's great! My Tagalog was in pretty decent shape about a year ago, then I set conversation aside to finish writing the book, and dropped it completely to devote myself to relearning Swahili. The good news is that my Swahili is the best it's ever been (near B2 imo). The bad news is Swahili drove Tagalog out of my mind, meaning I go to speak Tagalog, and out comes Swahili. They are similar somehow. Anyway, that was a week ago; now I'm back in the US and back on Tagalog, conversing every other day. But Im jealous :)

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Hah! Living here is the best way to do it. Speaking of kiSwahili, many Kenyans and other Africans love Pinoy teleserye.
