Language Learning Blog Round Up 4

It’s been a while, but we’re making progress behind the scenes at Language bug. There’s a lot of stuff going on that we’re very excited about, but it’s a bit soon to tell. However, what we can say is that in the interim, we’ve been scouring the net for cool language learning blog links so you don’t have to.

Let’s get started on our (sort of weekly) language learning blog round up:

LanguageBug Language Learning Blog Weekly Roundup 4

1. British Council: Can The Universe Be Described in Simple English?

Quirky and not really related to language learning blogging or even language learning per se., this is the sort of thing that is interesting and inspiring. It also goes to show, for language learners, that you can do a lot more with a limited vocabulary than you think. I remember a few years back reading a treatise on Nucleur Fission (Or Fusion) in Old Norse. I’ll have to dig that information up for a future round up.

This article is a blurb for a book by Roberto Trotta in which he attempts to describe the Universe in 707 words. I’ll certainly pick up the book at some point. I say ‘blurb’ but what you actually get when you click on the link is an amazing article on how to stretch out your vocabulary. Also, his use of ‘child like language’ is very reminiscent about some of the techniques on this site, such as Living In All Five Senses.

2. Thai Language Cheat Sheets.

This isn’t so much a blog post, or set of blog posts… In fact, I’m not sure what it is. But this isn’t a round up of aesthetic sites, its a round up of language learning blog stuff that helps us all with learning. I’m not learning Thai, but I have to commend the site for having cheat sheets. They’re great, because we don’t want to be pulling out our teach yourself every revision session, nor do we want to take a dictionary with us to a meetup in a foreign language. If Thai is your thing, you can do a lot worse than getting the cheat sheets on the Women Learn Thai language learning blog.

3. 9 tips for Language Learning Success.

I tend to veer away from “10 Best…” types of articles. That said, there are some which spark ideas that you wouldn’t have otherwise had. As a solo language learner, the article doesn’t apply to me. For those of you with families who language learn, this article might spark some ideas.

As said above, we’re busy behind the scenes at Language Bug. Thoughts on the articles above?
