What are the names for different festivals, celebrations and observances in your target language? What different festivals, celebrations and observances are there in your home country or the country/countries where your target languages are spoken? How are they celebrated? What is your favourite festival, celebration or observance? What is your favourite memory of a festival, celebration or observance?

Good luck and happy learning! ♥

So I was feeling anxious so I took a walk outside and on my way back there was a group of Arabic speaking men walking on the other side of the road and one of them yelled what sounded like أين, أين which I think meant “where where?” at a car slowly driving past them and then he jumped on the car and the car drove off. Happy to get some unexpected listening practice and understand something!

Hello! It’s time for a new langblr challenge! This time the challenge is called Langblr Picture Describing Challenge and the purpose of it is to improve your language skills by describing pictures in your target language!

To participate in this challenge you must pick a random picture from Flickr, Pinterest, We♥It or other website and then describe it in your target language! You can either make a vocabulary list of the things you find in the picture or write full sentences. If you want, you can post about your progress and show which pictures you chose and how you described them. If you do, please tag your post as #picturedescribingchallenge so that I and others can see what you’re working on and learn something new as well!

You can choose to participate in this challenge for 7 days, 14 days, 21 days, or 30/31 days - it’s up to you!

Enjoy your studies!
