So I recently read Sarah Millican’s book, How to be champion, and I absolutely loved it. One of the things I really loved was that in the beginning of the book, she explained the word champion, which I hadn’t even considered.

Ĉu mi lernas alian lingvon?
Mi estis tedita semajnfine, kaj mi volis lerni alian lingvon, ĉar... mi estas mi, kaj mi trovas ĝin trankvila. Sed kiu lingvo devas mi lerni?

'Sed esperanto estas tre malbela,' … Continue reading Ĉu mi lernas alian lingvon?

This has turned out to be a lot more challenging than I had realised, though not for the reasons you might think - though I'm still struggling with postpositions and definite and indefinite conjugation of verbs. … Continue reading Spurning my mistress(es)

Scandinavian for beginners, part 2
When I sat down to write this month's post, I initially wanted to write something about Brexit. I made a couple of attempts but honestly, I have to admit that I just don't have the words - I could write about the feeling of betrayal and disconnection I and many others of my generation feel … Continue reading Scandinavian for beginners, part 2
