I know I could never have learned my second language without a textbook and a teacher to go through it with me, because that’s just how my brain works.

Another two weeks of German language learning, one step at a time, one step at a time. I honestly do feel like I am getting somewhere – slowly but surely. This is the reality that I have to finally accept: to keep a language alive in a country where the language is not spoken is […]

These have been two great weeks of German language learning! Nothing in particular happened. I just felt like I got into a super-duper, rhythmic, consistent German language learning groove. I actually looked forward to reading my German language novel each night, I finally began to memorize some German articles that I was consistently saying incorrectly, […]

Ok, you asked for it! Many of you wrote me demanding… er, just kidding…. asking nicely that I do the next Language Refresh 101 video in German. Did you know what you were getting yourself into? I will not take responsibility if you cry in pain from my destruction of the German language.

As you saw, there was no Language Refresh 101 post last week. I am realizing that posting every week is a bit much for me this time around. Therefore, I am going to aim for every other week. But no worries – we are starting a new series of language refresh posts from a guest […]
