I can’t see how I do to send a personal message to another member of LingQ. Is the only way of communication thorugh the forum or Skype? If so, please consider a personal message or instant messages system on the site. It would be very useful!
Furthermore, I have difficulties overall to understand how the site/system works. Anyone who can help me out? I want to learn Portuguese (preferrably European Portuguese).
I feel really stupid today, haha! It didn’t make it clearer, I mean, I understand the concept but I don’t know how to start and what to do really… I understand Portuguese quite well in written (and spoken - slowly) form but the challenge for me is to write myself and of course - talk. Any suggestions on what I should do?
I didn’t find any info regarding sending messages to other members though? Steve, help me!
And another question: do you earn points by being a tutor? What commitments are there for tutors? I might be interested in tutoring in Swedish, but I’m not sure how it works since I don’t understand a lot at all as you might have noticed already.
Ok, thank you for your fast reply! I just discovered the walls I’m sad to hear that there are no Portuguese tutors. Does that mean that there will be no new Portuguese content uploaded? I find mostly old podcasts in Brazilian Portuguese.
Get on our Portuguese language forum and ask for a tutor. We have lots of Brazilian members, and some Portuguese. At this point in our development it is sort of chicken and egg. Tutors post discussions and if no one shows up they stop. You will find the same for Swedish. We are doing things that we hope will remedy this situation.
We are continuing to produce our Portuguese podcasts which are from Portugal. I do not know how advanced you are, but I listen a lot to the podcasts from Portugal put out by TSF. Unfortunately there are no transcripts.
