[Video] Entrevista con Marlon “Señor alemán” Görnert

Hoy nuevamente tengo el gusto de presentar la entrevista a un amigo que realmente se transformó en una charla muy interesante sobre la vida en general y que espero que haya una segunda parte de esta. Quizás esta fue bastante informal, pero creo que le da un gran toque de naturalidad y una sensación de comodidad. Marlon es alemán y actualmente reside en Estocolmo, Suecia. Sabe alemán, inglés, español (con un perfecto acento porteño), portugués, catalán, francés, sueco e italiano,…

[Video] Language Learning Goals for 2017

While I’m working on the next round of videos, I’ve made my Language Learning Goals for this year. Considering I will have to deal with many things in other aspects, I’ve managed to keep them real, manageable. They are not very ambitious, but I’ll have to see. If I had to summarize them, probably it could be under strengthening my knowledge.

Today I have the honor of presenting an audio interview with Sergiu from Simple Romanian. His site is a full platform to learn Romanian in a different way, by short videos often shot in Cluj and actual conversations hold by native speakers.

As someone who wants to make language learning a joyful, yet realistic experience… It’s time to debunk some myths about Polish and Polish learning. Polish IS the hardest language…

[Video] #polyglotchallenge

One of the best things about updating this blog with videos is the amount of time it takes. It did not take plenty of my time! Chris Huff from Language Fan did this challenge about 2 weeks ago and I found it quite interesting, so I joined it as well. Basically, he adapted this challenge from Instagram and took it to a YouTube format, which is the one I used as well. You can check out the questions here and many people…

Taking notes in Chile: a good way to speed up knowledge

Taking notes in Chile: a good way to speed up knowledge

It’s been about a month since I went back to University as a student. I haven’t been a regular student since I got my Bachelor’s degree in December 2011, so going back to a study rhythm in which I have to do projects, turn in papers or tasks and take notes (along with working fulltime)… hasn’t been easy (though I won’t deny that… I love being back at University! I like my classes and the environment over there). Considering that…
