[Video] Entrevista con Marlon “Señor alemán” Görnert

[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] Entrevista a Carlos Reyes – Periodista chileno y profesor de hebreo

[Post in Spanish since the interview is in that language] Nuevamente, les tengo una entrevista que grabé hace un tiempo con un compatriota mío que reside actualmente en Perú, Carlos Reyes. Él es periodista y profesor de idiomas (de inglés y hebreo), cuya historia de vida es muy interesante debido a que ha aprendido un idioma poco común, el hebreo, sin siquiera tener una conexión fuerte con la cultura de Israel. Él también maneja una página de Facebook en la…

[Video] Language Learning Goals for 2017

[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.

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…

[Update] The best, free and LEGAL materials to learn Polish, part 2

It’s been about a year since I wrote this post about materials to learn Polish and I am happy to mention that there are now more materials to start learning and practicing Polish the right way and suited to every need. As always, my goal is to show you the best, free and LEGAL materials to learn a language as there are plenty of better ones that are paid (and well worth paying for them). Po polsku po Polsce: This…

My life story as Polyglot: Guest post by Dimitris Polychronopoulos

Today I’m feauturing a guest post by Dimitris Polychronopoulos, a Greek man with an interesting life story regarding languages and his experiences with learning different ones, especially with French. I must say that Dimitris’s story is quite similar to mine, though there are some differences that you may see later. If you would like to be a guest writer on Linguablog.org, please contact me. I’m Dimitris Polychronopoulos. I’m a citizen of both Greece and USA. My mother is a monolingual English-speaker…

[Repost] Video interview given to Artem from Yaziky.com [in Spanish]

A few weeks ago (curiously, just before taking a sick leave due to nasty flu), I gave an interview to Artem from Yaziky.com in Spanish about my language learning process and giving some general advice on languages, traveling and foreign cultures. Artem speaks fluent Spanish and he is an amazing and humble guy. You can watch this interview on YouTube and interact with him on his blog, YouTube channel and Facebook page.
