Also, on it says transgenre means "(person) with different gender... - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Better dictionary than Google Translate?
    You're doing nothing wrong, it's that no app is perfect! I use , it is the most accurate online dictionary, and even though it might not be exactly what you're looking for, is also a great tool for pronunciation.

  • How to learn Canadian French without school?
    The best way to learn any language is through genuine exposure. I would start literally by reading the most simple books you can find with a dictionary or open. Create a vocab list. Do this 10 minutes a night--frequency is more important for language acquisition than intensity. Once you've done this for a while and you feel like you have some vocab, start trying to reproduce it by adding 5... - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago

So if you look up "trash can," you see that there are a bunch of regional variations: - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
