I think so. Even in my country, there are dialects that are at risk of "disappearing" because no one really uses it anymore.
Is this true? Can you name few?

Well idk, for me personally I don't always have something smart to reply and I don't want to just reply something for the sake of replying. Sometiems I like the replies made to my comments instead of replying.
This. Me too. Even on Facebook, when people comment on my own posts and I can't think of anything to say, I just like the comments and leave them hanging. LOL
I haven't try this but I believe that this is pretty simple to use because you simply aren't required to think of your own words or phrases, you usually pick an answer from a predetermined list. Would love to hear from babbel users as well so im following this thread. :)
shita = tongue kata = shoulder kubi = neck onaka = stomach te = hand ude = arm senaka = back mune = chest uu se to = waist
Nice. Are you aware that there is stress (technically called pitch accent) in Japanese words? It's not as important or prominent as stress in Tagalog, but I admit now that I wish I had learned the pitch accent at the same time I learned new Japanese vocabulary.
hmmmm never heard of that, thanks though! ill search for it :)
Don't they come hand in hand? I mean, how can you be considered fluent if your use of the language is not correct/accurate?
This may sound logical, but what I was trying to say is, accuracy is the ability to produce grammatically accurate English sentences, while fluency is the ability to produce language in a coherent and effortless way. I mean you can express yourself clearly eventhough your language is not accurate :) I hope it makes sense haha!
Can you be fluent in a language without having 100% accuracy? Think about times when you didn’t accurately follow the rules of your native language, but you were still perfectly understood by others. It happens more than we realize right? :grin: But this does not mean we should forget the importance of accuracy. How about you? In your opininon, what is more important? fluency or accuracy?
you can find the tagalog word of website from the link above. its "pook sapot" :grin:
Is this a joke? Haha. Haven't heard the word but just now. It's kind of weird though because it's very literally translated in our language. Web = sapot and site=pook. I need to check the link you provided because I'm really curious about this translation.
I remember when I was starting to learn English. I used to ask my friends to only speak English to me and I have absolutely no problem understanding what they say or write, but I have to answer them in Tagalog because I just don't know what to say. lol
That's one of the strangest language articles I've ever read. The men and women speak different languages, but they understand each other. In my village, the men and women speak the same language but they don't understand each other.
In my country we gather the 24 to wait until midnight and then we have a big dinner and exchange gifts. There is a lot of music and parties. I remember one of my favorites traditions growing up were Las Posadas, where kids will dress as shepards and there will be a representation of Mary and Joseph. And they will go from house to house singing and asking for a place to stay just like the story of the Nativity. In the month of December everything is more joyful, full of lights, decorations, music and more importantly the union of the families.
I think that we latinos have a lot of things in common xD.... In my country there are two options: - People go to 11-12AM mass to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. - People party and drink and wait till 12AM to hug everyone, have dinner and give presents. Then they keep partying. We eat hallacas (like mexican tamales with european and african heritage), pan de jamon (ham bread - with olives and raisins), pernil (pork) and ensalada de gallina (hen salad with potatoes) On new years eve we have a tradition, we wait till 12AM and we eat 12 grapes and each one represents a wish :)
