There’s a lot happening at the moment that I thought I would give you all an update as to what you can expect from me in the upcoming weeks!
The italki World Cup Language Challenge is quickly approaching which means that if you have not signed up yet to participate in the challenge, now’s the time to do so. The deadline is June 1st so make sure you sign up before then and if you want to earn an additional 50 ITC ($5 [convert currency] ) to put toward your challenge then make a video pledge Check out mine!
Isn’t this a great initiative to better your language skills while hoping your favourite teams wins the World Cup? I certainly think so! (Go Denmark and Sweden! I will be excited to see either of them win!)
I have already begun preparations for this challenge and will be revealing what I hope to achieve with each passing week of the challenge in my next blog post! Check out what Lindsay hopes to accomplish during the challenge!
How do you plan on completing your 25 lessons in the italki challenge? I would love to hear about it!
I’m Moving House (again!)
Yes, that’s right I’m moving house yet again. It just seemed like I had already did that it November! This was completely unexpected and happened so soon! Too soon if you ask me! I will be packing up all my belongings tomorrow and will be officially moved in on Thursday. (Or so I’m told!) Hopefully, this means internet is already set up and ready to do. If not, then I might have to start my World Cup Language Language through my mobile! Which I will do if it reaches that point!
Luckily there won’t be as much to move out as there was previously! I will keep everyone updated via Twitter Be sure to follow my updates there.
I’m Creating Languages Too!
While this might not be much of a secret seeing as many of you probably found out of this hobby when I mentioned Esperanto and whether not you should learn it. I didn’t go into details about the languages I was creating (mostly because it would end up being a tangent that would distract from the post) but if you would to see my latest conlang project, you may either visit the Zompist forums (I don’t think I’ve created a thread for it yet but it will be there in the future no doubt), on the Conlang Wikia or on at the official website. If learning about linguistics interests you then I would definitely recommend checking out Mark Rosenfelder’s Language Construction Kit and Advanced Language Construction Kit for useful insight into how to go about creating your own languages.
