Two ways to use your leisure time for learning a language

Alright, admit it. We are all guilty of it - starting the New Year, or a new month, with every intention to learn about a new subject, play a new sport or stop eating a certain type of food.

If you are part of the language learning community and you began your 2019 with your head buried in books, a room full of revision cards and an inbox full of new language newsletter sign-ups - which you are 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 mien, 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.

Or any that I particularly dislike for that matter. I’m in adoration of the authenticity of different voices and love to listen to the variety of 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.

Fresher’s Week International fancy dress themes that you’re guaranteed to see!

Freedom, friends and flyers for the SU parties; Fresher’s week is finally here! And fancy dress is a placing high on your list of priorities; that’s after the slew of shots, spirits and other merry beverages that you’ll find yourself quenching your thirst with throughout the week. And now, clutching your student card close following the guided campus tour, you’re checking out the nearest shops for cheap, cheerful and colour costumes. Trust me. When you stoop to paying for a £3 pizza with purely 2p coins, you’ll begin to see the value in EVERY bit of loose change. My advice?
