#365daysoflanglearning – Day 43

Hey, guys!

So, I forgot to post this prompt yesterday. Sorry about that! We’re going to be back on track this week, I promise.

However, I did still plan a prompt (I have a little calendar with them all filled in, honest!), so here it is: Time yourself speaking your new language.

This is something we did back on day ten, so it’s been a while since you’ve tried it out and you should see a lot of improvement, which means I’ve changed the amount of time you should aim to speak for this time around.

Level I: Speak for 20 seconds.

Level II: Speak for 30 seconds.

Level III: Speak for 45 seconds.

That’s it! If you like, you can record yourself speaking and upload it as a video–but see how it goes! Have you improved? I’m sure you will have.

Here’s the picture of the prompt if you want to share:

Hi guys! As promised, I’m carrying on with the A to Z Challenge and I’m now at the letter L, so today we’re going to learn about the language Lengilu.

Hi guys! I’ve been a little lax again, I know, but hey, it’s the keeping going that counts, right?


Anyway, it’s time for us to move onto the letter K and the language Karelian. I actually hadn’t heard of Karelian before I started doing the challenge (I hadn’t heard of most of these languages, but hey ho) – it was suggested to me on Twitter by Serpent (@serpent849), so thank her for what you’re about to learn I guess! (And follow her if you’re interested in a good chat about languages; she’s learnt more than a few.)

Hey guys! Oopsie, so I’m even further behind than I was before… these weekends just keep tripping me up somehow – but no worries, we’ve still got plenty of time left this month; and I am determined to get through the alphabet! So while I’d prefer to not be posting in May, if I am, oh well. We’ll just see how long this series will take.

Anyway, we’ve just managed to reach the letter I, so today I’m going to tell you a little about the language Inuinnaqtun.
