Hi everyone! If any of you feel that I’ve been too quiet during the winter, I’m sorry. Hehe. I’ve been trying to focus on studying and following my language projects for the month. Unfortunately, an illness during the middle of January hurt my progress a bit, and I mainly concentrated on healing instead of studying. I actually did miss a day of studying with Drops because of this.
Happy New Year to all my readers, and friends! To quickly recap on what I got done last year…
Studied 3 new languages: Slovak, Portuguese (Brazilian), Polish
Traveled to countries to use the language studied (countries where I don’t know the local language well omitted): Slovakia, Greece, France, Poland
Hello guys! It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and started putting some of my thoughts down. I hope everyone had a great holiday season, whether or not you celebrate it.
As everyone knows, I was just abroad for a few months, mainly in Central Europe. Knowing that I was going to spend a good while in Poland, I started to learn some Polish before the trip. But during the trip, and after, I’ve learned some things about language learning that could probably serve some help to some people. I would also like to add a disclaimer that this was my experience traveling and using my foreign languages abroad, and your experience may vary. 😉
Hey hey! I’m back to continue the second part of this blog post, and this is the last part of my recent adventure I had through parts of Europe. I left off leaving Prague to go back to Poznań. Traveling by bus and finding some accommodation deals online during those end of November promotions that shall not be named, worked out for me to save some money and find great places. I also needed to return to Warsaw by December 10, as I booked my return ticket to the U.S. from Warsaw, so Poznań was a good place to go back to.
Hello there! I’m back home in The Bronx, and after some down time to recover and shake off jet lag, I’m ready to tell about my recent adventures after I left the volunteer group bus in Poznań. From that point until I touched down at home, it was 2 weeks of traveling, so I’m dividing this post in 2 parts. So here’s Part 1.
