O41000 tongues

Even though there are so many ways and opportunities for us to
communicate to others the truth of God’s Word in our first language, learning other languages gives us even more. Even so-called “dead” languages give us insight and first-hand information that we might not have otherwise. Languages
are going extinct at a rapid pace but this should not discourage us from
learning “foreign” languages; on the contrary, fewer languages just means it should be easier to learn the most important ones!

I hope that everyone will use this group to communicate with each other in “other tongues” and express
language-related needs in creation/Biblical circles and publishing. This is also to point out good resources for learning language, digging deeper into our  own and finding good books or websites in various languages.

Does anyone know about a language-learning company called Babbel? They are based in Germany and founded in 2007. I just wondered in anyone had experience or knew something that makes them better or worse than others in the business.

Oh well, my computer said that was simplified (when it asked to translate); I thought it was traditional... not quite the Oriental scholar yet ;)

That sounds exciting. Well, since that city is a place where people still speak Cantoneez (I think) and traditional characters are everywhere (not having been replaced by modern simplified) you might find this section of AiG translations to be helpful if you haven't already seen it:http://www.answersingenesis.org/zh

May the Lord shine upon you and your mission.

Speaking of 1000 tongues, in three weeks I am traveling to 5hang-hi to teach on Creation vs. Evolution. What resources are available ON-line, or in digital that I can down-load for them in THEIR language?

I found a sight with online Hebrew flashcards that are pronounced (modern Hebrew).

If anyone is interested.

Good point David! never thought of that. It's sad that Latin sort of represents political and spiritual oppression however, for over 1,000 years if one read the Bible in Western Europe it was likely a Latin version. Augustine, Luther and Calvin were all intimately familiar with the Bible in Latin. 

Comment by David Thomas Posey on October 7, 2013 at 7:01pm

If you get to thinking about it, Latin mainly survived because the Scriptures were translated into it; otherwise it would be completely dead.

Comment by Steven Posey on October 6, 2013 at 11:55am

I was just thinking today of how interesting and apropiate it is that the two main Biblical languages are still technically "living languages", even though they have both undergone revitalization periods in the last couple of centuries. It has been suggested to me that in the case of Hebrew it was more like "resuscitation".

Ken Ham's Foundations series has been translated into Russian. You can watch it for free here: http://www.answersingenesis.org/ru/video
