Learning Swedish!

I’ve been learning Swedish in April. Here’s what I’ve been doing with it, and what you can learn from my attempts.

The Language Behind Months

Here are somethings that you might not have known about the months of the year and how language knowledge can help you decipher their origin.

My Idea For a Trick to Make Absolutely Sure You Learn The Language While In The Country

I have just come back from my stay in Greece where I tried to learn Greek (more on the results of that in my next post) and that experience got me thinking about: those of you who go to foreign countries and try to learn the local language will know that learning it will not come by itself: you actually have to put a lot of work in; and even then sometimes it’s very hard. In this day and age of English as the international language, speaking opportunities are scarce and even then conversations end prematurely due to your low level of the language or you just don’t seem to be able to discuss difficult topics. At the end of the day, you end up staying in the country and not learning much if any of the local language. That’s where I got an idea.
