How do you say...?

Yesterday was my last Arabic class at FaithAction International House. This past Thursday was my last Mandarin Chinese class, too. It seems like forever ago when I started those classes. I didn't learn as much as I would have liked to, but the circumstances involved with the classes allow me to be grateful for the foundation that I was still able to gain in the two languages.

I am planning on a series of posts based on my experiences in the classes. A lot of my motivation for writing these posts comes from the bloggers that have a home in my RSS feed and fulfill my need to read and think about language all the time! Check them out here:

I kinda like languages. (Twitter @ikll)
Language Log
Lexiophiles (Twitter @babla)
Lingosteve's place (Twitter @lingosteve)
The Linguist (Twitter @LingQ)
Spanish Only (Twitter @spanishonly)

I am so happy that I found these blogs and that I even discovered Twitter, where I follow others interested in language. The disappointing part is that I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of others out there talking about language learning. I get different feelings and perspectives from each of the above bloggers. Some of their ideas mesh with mine and some don't, but I am glad to see others think about languages as much I do!

Ok, I'm a nerd.

  1. Allow me to post a completely self-serving link to my own website on language learning: Street-Smart Language Learning. I hope my blog can become one less that you're missing out on!
