  • Really starting to enjoy Finnish again (even if it’s hard and makes me wanna shoot myself sometimes lol - I’m having some breakthroughs though, which is probably why I’m enjoying it)
  • Getting the inexplicable urge to learn Korean again (why does this keep happening)
  • Kinda starting to enjoy Spanish again now it’s a bit more challenging? Maybe I won’t drop it after all idk
  • Feeling like I’ve plateaued with Norwegian again and pushing through that is difficult but I wanna do it but I also have a million other things I wanna do waaah #firstworldproblems
  • I still love Icelandic but it’s not really a priority rn so maybe I’ll just keep doing Drops just to keep it up rather than focus on actually learning it
  • But who knows maybe I’ll start doing Korean on Drops

02.24.2020 | 7 Day Korean Challenge: Day 2/7

Oops posting this a little bit late, but very happy with my progress! Sitting at my desk can get really stuffy, so I stood by my window to enjoy the beautiful sunset. I got through another four-ish chapters of this book and got a lot more comfortable with using the words in sentences. Fewer words today because they were all super new and sort of hard to remember.

Hours studied: 8
New words learned: 50
Words reviewed: 100

Bengali version of the comic panel from my main blog @normalweirdoboy

I couldn’t translate it exactly because some English slangs don’t have Bengali equivalents and vice versa, but I’m quite satisfied with this.

Buenos días a todos! Estoy en la biblioteca ahora y me cago en la leche. El internet está roto, y mi internet móvil está mierda también. Tengo una hora hasta mi próxima clase. Además! Estoy triste!! Porque El Ministerio del Tiempo no está en Netflix!!! :( Me encanta está serie y quiero verla otra vez. Pues, puedo encontrarla en línea con subtítulos en inglés o español, puedo entenderlo con los dos. Bueno, debería hacer algún trabajo, adiós!

Ciao! How do I ask someone out(like on a date or something) or just ask them to hang out in Italian? I want to ask the Italian exchange student at my school out in Italian but I don't want to mess up too badly(I am learning Italian, but I'm not super far yet). Thank you! UwU

You can ask, for example, “Ti va di uscire con me?” or “Vuoi uscire con me?” (=would you like/do you want to go out with me?)
It’s not specified for what, it could be whatever. In Italian we don’t really specify it - it’s all about what you do and how you do it.
Good luck!

Hi, I wasn’t planning on making them anymore, but I can write one for Karelian.

Have a nice day you too :)

Good morning all!!

I feel motivated today. I feel rly rly good knowing I‘ll be done with my essay soon and that my grades turned out fine for this semester.

I want to be more productive next semester and study a bit harder, I‘ve done well so far but I could have done more in retrospect.

Anyway, I‘m going to concentrate on the task ahead and work on my essay today at the library. I hope I can get it done soon!

Language learners! Did you know that there is a Duolingo podcast for people who are learning Spanish or French. It’s stories about people and spoken in clear voice with English fillers to help you keep track of the story. It’s available at least on Apple Podcasts and Spotify but I’m sure other streaming services are available. I highly recommend cheking it out because hearing the language you’re learning is an important part of the process.

Tl;dr Search for Duolingo on your preferred podcast app and listen Spanish or French stories with Engilsh fillers

Day 7 -  Hardest thing about your target language

People always think of Japanese as one of the hardest languages for an English native to learn, but I’ve had so much fun with it that the difficulty hasn’t really been a problem. Kanji is tough, but I use WaniKani every day and have been chipping away at them for a couple of years now. Keigo can be difficult. I often forget which is which when it comes to honorific, super modest, and humble speech. Overall though, I enjoy it so much that I’m willing to overcome any obstacle!
