#365daysoflanglearning – Day 48

Hey, guys!

I think when you’re learning a language–whatever your reasons are for learning it–to know something about a culture it comes from. After all, if you’re learning the language, then ideally you’d like to interact with native speakers one day and it might be nice to have some idea of their culture beforehand.

Hence, today’s task: Learn five facts about a country where your language is spoken.

See what you can find–and if you already know a lot about one country, then look for another place, or look for obscure facts, things that you wouldn’t usually even search for.

Happy Googling! 😉

#365daysoflanglearning – Day 47

Hi, guys!

So I’m trying to recycle as few prompts as possible–but let’s be honest, there are only so many things you can do! 😉 This prompt should take you back to day twenty-three–and it’s time to use Pinterest again!

Using Pinterest, find some grammar pins related to your language.

Level I: Find three pins.

Level II: Find five pins.

Level III: Find seven pins.

If you find any interesting ones, feel free to share them in the comments!

Hi, guys!

Today’s prompt is writing based, and it’s going to require you to try out a (maybe) new website.

Use oneword.com to write in your new language for one minute.

Oneword is a website I found recently and its premise is simple: once you press ‘go’, you’ll see a page with one word at the top of it and you have to write for one minute on whatever that word inspires. Try this in your new language and see how many words you get!

#365daysoflanglearning – Day 45

Hi, guys!

Since it’s Valentine’s Day today, I thought I’d give you a fun little prompt to get you in the holiday spirit! 😉

Learn how to say ‘I love you’ in another language.

If you already know this in the main language you’re learning, then you can try and learn it in another one–Omniglot has a giant list of different ways to say ‘I love you’–and then maybe try it out on a special someone. Or your pet. Your pet will appreciate it.

That’s it! Here’s the pic if you’d like to share the prompt:

Have a great day today–and I’ll see you all tomorrow!

#365daysoflanglearning – Day 44

Hey, guys! Happy Monday!

Today’s prompt is a reading one; again, it’s not a skill that is super important for everyone, but if you’re going to learn to read in your foreign language, then, like all other skills, it requires practice.

Read some of a book or article.

Level I: Read two paragraphs.

Level II: Read two pages.

Level III: Read two chapters.

Like with the speaking prompt for day 43, the minimum amount you should aim for has increased–because this is a way to keep challenging yourself. Always keep trying to do a little more than you have the day before (though don’t be disheartened if you don’t always make it; sometimes that’s difficult!).
