I signed up for some more digital newsletters and in the Italian language! I mainly checked out newsletters from places I visited when I was in Rome back in 2019. After I’ve gone through a few of these, I’ll add in newsletters from sites in other Italian cities as well (Firenze, Venezia, Napoli, Sicilia, Milano, eccetera!) I narrowed down the French and Spanish newsletters that … Continue reading Digital Newsletters in Italiano
Okay, here is a look into my new study schedule of languages! I’m mainly keeping up with French, Spanish, Italian, and Chinese at the moment. My lower priority languages really are taking a back seat at the moment. But things change in life, and things will change again in the future! I’m keeping up with news in French and Spanish in the mornings. During my … Continue reading Life update- part 2
It’s been quite a bit of time since my last post! Good news- I started a new day job- and it took me a few weeks (more than a month at that point?!) to adapt to my new schedule and all of the resulting changes! During this time of getting used to things, I continued to listen to RFI for news in French in the … Continue reading Life update- part 1
Happy February- I mean, 1st Quarter! (I wrote this post in February, and never published it, woops! It still feels relevant though, so enjoy!) This isn’t really a month in review…Just a few language learning things I’ve come across, or cool things I’ve learned recently, a few wins and losses, you know the usual. French- I had a bit of a “fail” with My French … Continue reading How was your January- I mean, 1st Quarter?
When podcasts first came out, I wasn’t really interested. I wasn’t sure if I had the attention span to listen to a podcast, and I really preferred music anyway. But something got me interested to try one out, and I’ve been hooked ever since! In general, I like to multitask while I have podcasts on in the background. It depends for my language learning podcasts- … Continue reading Lang Podcasts
I signed up for some digital newsletters in Spanish this time! I only started with museums and national sites in Spain, but I’ll look to other Spanish-speaking countries in the future as well. I narrowed down the French newsletters that I like to read, so once I’ve gone through these, I’ll narrow down this list as well. Enjoy! Museo Nacional del Prado Museu Picasso de … Continue reading Digital Newsletters en Español
Recently I’ve decided to try out some new language learning apps! Novelty is a big part of my learning process, so I recognize that and make sure to add in new resources every so often. Sometimes I come across them out of the blue, and other times I have to go looking. I found these apps and gave them a try for a few weeks! … Continue reading Whose line is it anyway? New apps!

The holidays can be a great time for language learning! Haha, you might expect the opposite, but I have my reasons. Sure, the holidays are a busy time of year trying to be prepared, get errands done, shop for gifts, etc. Then actually making time to see or travel to family & friends, and spending time together. You might wonder, how can you keep up … Continue reading Happy Holidays! Gleðileg Jól!
A recent tidbit to share, related to my American Sign Language learning. My friend got free tickets to see the Hamilton musical in my area! I probably wouldn’t have seen it in person otherwise, since it’s usually so expensive. It was really well done, and I had a good time. But the cool thing was that they had an small team of ASL interpreters (3 … Continue reading Tidbits- ASL
