May the Fourth be with you

Hey, guys! You didn’t think I was going to skip Star Wars day, now did you? Of course, they are films and so not necessarily related to languages (though you should read this article if you want to find out more about that), so what I’ve done is made something a little special for you instead.

猴年大吉!新年快乐!Happy Lunar New Year!

Hey guys, how are you all? I’m feeling like I need a holiday after my holiday, but that’s probably just some laziness talking. 😉

Now, as many of you may know, today (8th February) is the Lunar New Year – an occasion that I have unfortunately never managed to celebrate in China, or another country where it is very significant, but hopefully I will one day. Until that happens, however, you get to enjoy my posts here. 😛

Last year was the year of the sheep (羊, my zodiac animal) and the year before that was the year of the horse (马) – but this year, it’s the year of the monkey! (And as usual, Google have provided a doodle to celebrate.)

New Year Challenges – January 2016 (5 Challenges + 1 Printable!)

Hi, guys! So we’re not quite on the final day of 2015 (unlike when I posted something similar last year…) but it’s time again to start thinking about gearing up for our new year.

As I’m sure you’ve all realised, I’m a big fan of language challenges, and as we go into a new year, other people really seem to get into them too. So here’s my collection of language challenges that I’ve seen (and will probably take part in) during at least January 2016. If you know of any more, please let me know! I’ve done some googling, but I’m probably missing one or two.

New Year Challenges – January 2015

Alrighty, so we’re here on the last day of 2014 and I’ve got a blog post for you! I’m going to do some goal-setting tomorrow but for today, I thought I’d compile a list of all the language challenges I’ve found that are taking place or starting in January 2015. Just a little something for you all to consider! 😉

Valentine’s Day 2014

Just a short post because I’m spending my day today with my books to try and plough through some more of my dissertation. (A perfect example of not spending the day with the things you love 😉 ).

This video was made by the people at memrise and is super cute for this time of year; it’s a bunch of people saying ‘I love you’ in different languages. How many of them do you recognise?

🙂 See? And, if you’ve got some time and are learning English, bab.la have made a quiz for the day which tests your knowledge of idioms using the word ‘heart.’ Also cute! (I got 90%, so let me know how you all do!)

Aaaaand finally, head over to omniglot to find out how to say ‘I love you’ in loads of different languages!

Anyway, I hope the rest of the day treats you all well! 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day!
