So, today is the first day of December. That means that Polyglot NaNoWriMo is over for another year, and I suppose you’re wondering how and what I ended up doing. Well, I toyed with the idea of trying to teach myself French through the medium of writing… but in the end, I figured it would … Fortsätt läsa A Swing and a Miss
The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things! Of shoes, of ships, of sealing wax - of cabbages and kings! ...sorry, I'm not sure what happened there. Nevertheless, it’s time for Polyglot NaNoWriMo! This is something of a placeholder post because pretty much all of my writing energy for this month … Fortsätt läsa Let’s Go, NaNoWriMo!
I’ve been doing a lot of dabbling in various languages over the past few months, and I’ve really learned a lot. I’d be lying if I said I regretted it because I quite enjoy having a broad pool of knowledge (though in some parts it’s incredibly shallow) to draw from. Languages are living things which … Fortsätt läsa For the love of words
Over the past few months, I’ve lost my way a bit when it comes to language learning. I’ve been jumping around from project to project like a madman, never really getting anywhere with anything. But I do love a good dabble, and although I’ve not really attained any sort of deep knowledge about any particular … Fortsätt läsa Dabbling on the Livonian coast

Well, here we are - almost half way through the year already! As this past month has been particularly busy for me, I just wanted to take this opportunity to quickly check in and do a bit of a linguistic stock take, and maybe set out some goals for the rest of the year. As … Fortsätt läsa Stock taking & goal setting
Well, who could have believed that we'd be back here again? It honestly doesn't feel like it's been a whole year since my last Eurovision write-up, but this week all eyes have been glued on Tel Aviv. As usual I'm going to go through ten performances that I liked - either from the semifinals or … Fortsätt läsa Eurovision Song Contest 2019
Denna veckan har jag varit ledig från jobbet. Planen var att jag skulle åka utomlands, men efter en titt på min privatekonomi var det ett klart tecken på att det var ingen idé. Så jag bestämde mig för att bara ta lite tid för mig själv och öva lite self-care. Efter tre dagar så började … Fortsätt läsa En kort resa in i spanskan
Merry April, dear readers! This month, I’ll admit, I was struggling a little for ideas. My language learning progress has been minimal at best and I haven’t really done anything exciting travel-wise. Somebody on Twitter (you can find me @sprakskatan) made a wonderful suggestion and it kind of inspired me to talk a little about … Fortsätt läsa Languages & Me: Scandilove
