Two ways to use your leisure time for learning a language

Alright, admit it. We are all guilty of it - starting the New Year with the best intentions to learn about a new subject, play a new sport or stop eating chocolate, then failing miserably.

However, if you began your 2019 with your head buried in language learning books, a room full of revision cards and an inbox full of new language newsletter sign-ups - which you PROMISE you are going to read tomorrow - then you have probably overwhelmed yourself.

3 delicious & digestible ways to learn a new language with foreign food

When was the last time you tried food from a foreign country? Maybe it was at an international food festival, or your favourite restaurant that specialises in authentic cuisine? 
In a recent survey, six out of ten adults said that they prefer more adventurous cuisine to typical and traditional British meals. 
Small plates of Spanish tapas, chopsticks for your Chinese chow mein, a platter of Greek meze or a saucy Spaghetti Bolognese all the way from Italy to name a few dishes that are popular here in the UK.

Je t’aime (that’s I love you in French)

‘Sexy’ accents. They’re a hot topic in more ways than one. What sends one person googly-eyed* and gaga*, may send another barking mad*.

Like the oozing chocolate fondue fountain that you might be sharing with your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, are there any accents that make your heart melt? Personally, I don’t have a favourite accent. Or any that I particularly dislike for that matter. I j'adore the authenticity of different accents and dialects from region to region in the UK, and from country to country in the world. 

What makes the German Christmas markets sparkle?

Mince pies are being munched* in UK, KFC is being ordered in Japan and over in Germany, a goose is ready to be carved at the dinner table.
As Christmas is a time for sharing, gifts are being dressed up in ribbon, bows and wrapping paper, but they don’t just magically appear in a mist of snowflakes in our homes. Those dudes in pointy hats make them, then get their mate Santa and his flying reindeer to deliver them. Duhhhh.
