Usually i make lists with books and audios for learning languages, but now i’ll make this game. ^ ^ There’s only 1 rule, you must be an Android user.

Let’s start :) Click here, or here, maybe here or here?
There are 4 links, they lead to 4 different things and i think you will love them all, i hope so at least. (enjoy the prizes~ if you get to the end)

I’m sorry that ios users can’t play this game.

     ——-  A complete guide to a study routine ——-

Hey heh everyone it’s Tay and here’s a masterpost to become a disciplined individual because that’s what we all lazybones dream of but here’s how to make it come true! ( “•√•” )

                           ——- Making a study routine ——

Check how to make a study routine during exams here.

Step 1.  Write down all the subjects you have on the basis of their difficulty level.

here’s how - If you find a subject difficult or if it has a lot of memorization portion give it 3 points. If you are having any difficulty in a particular topic of a subject, give that subject 3 points too until you understand that topic. I put history here because is has lots and lots of pages to be read and stuff to be memorized.
When study? You are going to have to study these subjects every single day the sun shines.

Next, give subjects which are easy to grasp with little bit of understanding, 2 points. Put the subject with the different topic here too after you understand the topic because if you can’t understand a particular topic, it means you’re not fully confident about the subject itself.
I put maths, since it needs regular practice,  plus biology and chemistry here.
When study? You are gonna study these subjects every alternative day or every day for a short amount of time, say 30 minutes each day.

Finally, give subjects which need very little time to be understood or those which you can do during the free time in class, a single point. I put Sanskrit, Hindi  and English literature here.
When study? You can study these on every weekends and holidays or as said earlier, during the free time in between classes.

Step 2. Boxing in the stuff.

When you are done making the list, use this cute printable by @cmpbls to box in time for every subject. Make this REALISTIC and on the basis of your learning speed.
Leave in space for sleep, eating, shower, pee ( joking joking ;; ), chores, school/college, running/ fitness etc. Don’t forget recreation because your mental health is important too. These can be going out for movies, watching TV shows, creating art, checking social media, making yummy deserts for yourself, getting a long long shower, a picnic with friends and the list goes on.

Step 3. Done making it?

Then start using it! See if you left out any important thing or if your time limit for each subject is a bit less or a bit more. Write all these down somewhere and continue for a week.
At the end of the week, adjust your time for any subject you found uncomfortable with or add any chore which you forgot. Refer to step 1 for this again. Then make a new routine again. Make sure this is perfect because c'mon you don’t want to keep making schedules, do you?

So you’re done making a routine. But what happens after a month or so, can’t seem to maintain it? Keep reading then!

                        —— Maintaining a study routine ——

Step 1.  Make it real.
If you ask me to do 10 hours of study each day, I won’t be able to do it since I’m not use to it. Just like that, knowing your own learning capacity, make your routine so that you’re actually able to put it to use. Put in breaks, shower time, pee time (joking, I was making sure you’re listening haha) and all other chores and stuff. Make it normal and not some idealistic thing which you can’t follow at all.
However, if you do want to improve your learning capacity, go baby steps! For that, increase your study time and decrease your breaks in between proportionally. Then message me about your success! ;)

Step 2. Burnout baby?
Make sure your not just studying and studying 24/7. Putting in breaks is super important as it helps in keeping your focus and determination consistent. Having burnouts will not only decrease your productivity but will also lead to unwillingness to follow your routine. Remember, mental health is as important as your academic status! Go out in the sun with your friends and enjoy nature in its purest form ok?

Step 3. Enjoy, let go a little bit.
Please dont just keep studying 24/7. Have some relaxing days where you take out time for yourself and your pet (yes) and do some self care! Go for a walk, pet a pet, read a book, take a long shower, go out with friends and have fun!

Hope this helps! You can always send me requests for masterposts since my ask box is always open! :^)

I’m interested in the “’chai’ means tea” and “’chai’ is a type of tea, ‘tea’ means tea” divide in languages.

Team Chai:

  • Hindi - चाय (chaay)
  • Urdu - چائے (chai)
  • Arabic - شاي (shay)
  • Turkish - çay
  • Amharic - ሻይ (shayi)
  • Somali - shaah
  • Swahili - chai
  • Bosnian - čaj
  • Russian - чай (chai)
  • Greek - τσάι (tsai)
  • Chinese - 茶 (cha)
  • Thai - ชา (cha)
  • Portuguese - chá

Team Tea:

  • English - tea
  • German - tee
  • Danish - te
  • Dutch - thee
  • Africaans - tee
  • Yoruba - tii
  • Sudanese - téh
  • Hungarian - tea
  • French - thé
  • Italian - tè
  • Spanish - té

Team Neither:

  • Finnish - iltapäiväateria (also uses loanword ‘tee’)
  • Lithuanian - arbata
  • Japanese - お茶 (ocha)
  • Korean appears to use both 차 (cha) and 티 (ti)

My (completely unsupported, unresearched) theory is that Germanic and Romance languages tend toward the “tea” root, and other major language families tend toward “chai” especially languages spoken in largely Islamic areas (Arabic, Turkish, Amharic, Urdu) but there are many examples that break that pattern.

(Native speakers, please correct me! I do not speak these languages, can’t comment on everyday usage, and can only read Roman characters and Cyrillic. Google Translate was used for a large chunk of info.)

I’m not in the ml fandom bUT @illustraice ‘s Sun/Moon au has me h o o k e d.  Now, I’m no artist so I can’t draw for it (believe me I just tried drawing Mari and I spent more time outlining muscles than anything so that was a lost cause), and because I’m not in the ml fandom and I have no grasp on Mari and Adrien’s characters, I can’t write for it, either.  Buuuuut, given what I’ve read for this AU, I can certainly devise a playlist for it.  Because music is universal.

Indian/Hindu James Potter headcanons

• The Potters gave James his very boring, British name because they were worried he’d be teased if they gave him an Indian name
• James worked hard to be good at quidditch, mostly because he enjoyed it, but partly to defy the stereotypes that Indian people weren’t very good at it (what with the popularity of flying carpets in the Eastern hemisphere and the Indian team’s appalling performance in the World Cup)
• The boys celebrate Diwali every year by decorating their dorm and the common room with hundreds of lanterns and after the first year the house elves help out, Mrs Potter always sends them all sweets and gifts
• One year, James set off fireworks in the great hall at dinner, McGonagall made sure it didn’t happen again
• As Holi always falls on the day of a full moon and Remus is too ill to take part, Sirius suggested bringing the powder paint with them to the shrieking shack and celebrating in their animagus forms
•The powder always clumps in their fur and sticks to the damp walls of the shack, making it actually quite a cheery place in other circumstances
• As James is bilingual in Hindi and English, he will not only swear or insult people in Hindi, but also makes most exclamations of excitement or affection in his mother tongue too
• Lily thinks this is extremely cool, James starts speaking in Hindi more often
•James is also a vegetarian Hindu and greatly missed his dad’s Mughlai cooking when confronted with the somewhat limited and flavourless vegetarian options at Hogwarts
• That is until Peter had a word with the kitchen elves and brilliant Delhi dishes like vegetable biryani and mattar paneer started appearing on the Gryffindor table

वसुधा मर चूके है।

फिर, आप कों हो?

कोई नहीं।

“Vasudha is dead.”

“Then, who are you?”

“No one.”

Vitality at her most sads, sometime after the whole ordeal… when she was wandering… nameless and an abomination.

It's Hindi you dumb fuck

before i boarded the plane to come to america my grandfather told me to remember this country’s bountiful beauties. not the green fields, or the glorious mountaintop temples, not even  the the controlled chaos of the cities. but with tears filling his dark brown eyes, the same color as the soil he worked for his whole life. he told me to always keep one thing with me in my new life, how to spell Hindi correctly in english

Name: Agata
Age: 17
Country: Poland

Hey there! I was born in Poland and raised partly in the US. What interests me most is art, especially movies. I used to go to a film school and even though I don’t anymore, I still enjoy a movie night quite often. Lately, I’ve gone crazy about Bollywood. Another thing I love is learning languages. I can speak Polish and English (obviously, as they’re both my mother tongues), but also Spanish and Hindi. Of course, I’d be more than glad to talk with you in any of these, practice them, teach you something or maybe even learn something in another language from you :)

Preferences: Anyone aged 16-30 would be fine. And preferably someone at least a bit open-minded, I really don’t want to deal with intolerance.

Age: 22
Country: Canada

Hi, I’m currently a university student living in Western Canada. Moved here a couple of years ago. I am fairly well-travelled and I speak 4 languages (English, French, Urdu, Hindi). I’d love it if I could practice French with someone!

Interests and Hobbies
I like creative and crafty hobbies like knitting, cross stitching, putting together ikea furniture, writing letters, stitching, making cards, drawing. I also love watching movies, reading books, and tv shows. I’m really big on engaging in deep and meaningful conversations and debates about difficult topics such as religion, philosophy, politics, sociology, art history, and whatnot. So I appreciate an open mind and different perspectives.
I also volunteer my time to promoting pluralism and religious/cultural diversity. And since aspects of identity aren’t siloed, I am also LGBTQ+/Gender Identity/ body, and everything else positive.

I like
Sticky notes, cute stationery, craft supplies, hugs, long letters, good coffee, spending time with friends, learning new things. 

Preferences: preferably 20+ and female-identifying. open-minded towards all races, religions, sexualities, and gender identities. This last one isn’t a must, but I’d love talking to people outside of North America
