Well, they say better late than never... it's no secret that this blog post was a bit of a rush at the last minute. I've been a little conspicuous only by my absence in the online language learning community as of late, but I promise I have a good reason. You often hear that buying … Fortsätt läsa Goals for the year that wasn’t
Hello everyone! I wanted to do something a little bit different this month, and try and get to know you all a little better! Instead of doing a bog-standard post introducing myself, I took to Curious Cat to see if there was anything you guys were wondering about me… and boy, did you guys deliver! … Fortsätt läsa Getting to know you
The Eurovision Song Contest is a staple of my year. I start looking forward to it in about November, after listening to the songs from previous years so much I start to get tired of them. But the excitement for the coming year fills me with a sense of nostalgia, so I can enjoy them … Fortsätt läsa Shine a Light

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
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
Hello friends! I wanted to do something a little bit different this month. Instead of a retrospective look back on what's been going on, I'd like to turn that on its head and look forwards to what's coming up over the next couple of months. Most of you who are active in the language learner … Fortsätt läsa Eyes front, soldier!
Ahoj! Dobrý den! Já jsem Den Språkliga Skatan. Vítejte na mém blogu. Jak už víte, začínám se učit česky. Jde mi to dobře, ale jsem ještě stále na základní úrovni. Můj cíl pro příští rok je stát se lepším. Vím, že úroveň C1 je ambiciózní cíl. Ambiciózní, ale ne nemožný. Čeština je velmi krásný jazyk, … Fortsätt läsa Šťastný nový rok!
