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! 😉

100 Days of Spanish: Day 3

How is everyone? Settling into December? Getting ready for Christmas/the end of the year?

100 Days of Spanish: My Resources

I guess there’s no real reason for me to hold off on beginning until tomorrow, but I’d like to start with as clean a slate as possible, so I keep scouting out my Spanish resources but I’m trying not to use them.

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!
