German Readalong, Take Three: A Song of Ice and Fire

German Readalong Introduction - Die Herren von Winterfell

Hi, all! So some of you may remember that a long, long time ago, I did a readalong of Die Bestimmung (Divergent, Veronica Roth) in German, where I wrote up my thoughts, made word lists, and generally went through the book in a way that was interesting to me, helped me practise the language, and hopefully provided some help for you all too.

This post is basically me saying: I want to do that again. Continue reading “German Readalong, Take Three: A Song of Ice and Fire”

Weekly Language Learning Goals - Week Four: Readathon Time!

Okay, I’m back today for another fun goals post—don’t worry, the blog is going to have a little more about it come February.

I’m going to do a quick look at last week’s goals (and whether I achieved them), then the goals for this week and something a little extra I’m doing this weekend!

Kind 44 #001 | Die arme Katze!

Hey guys! Alright, so if you’ve been around the blog you might have noticed I posted that I was going to read Kind 44 (Child 44) back in July… and then I really didn’t post much all summer, much less keep up with that. But, no matter, I’m here now and I’m ready to get started on this thing! 🙂

The basic premise is: I read a chapter or part of a book in German at a time and then I post about it. There will be spoilers, in case you were wondering. The post will also be in German, in case you were wondering about that too – so, sorry if you don’t speak it; but it’s a chance for me to practise! (I would say use Google Translate, but I am not responsible for anything if you do…) If you do speak German, then feel free to read along with me and leave comments – and I’m creating a memrise course with vocabulary lists as I go, so that’s there if you need it.

Well, off we go, I guess!
