A Review of Muzzy in Gondoland | BBC Language Learning for Children

Muzzy in Gondoland Review: Muzzy is an interactive language learning program for children produced by the BBC. In an earlier post I shared that M and I recently welcomed a new addition to our family, Little Linguist.

Baked Spicy Cajun Panko Croquettes Recipe

I had my first croquettes, or croquetas, while we were in Barcelona, Spain. Since, they’ve been on my list of recipes I’d love to try out at home and recently, I finally had the opportunity (and ingredients on hand) to try it out. The croquetas I had in Spain were made with Iberian ham, manchego cheese, and dough, but M doesn’t eat ham, and I...

30 Things to Do In Barcelona, Spain on a Self-Guided Walking Tour

One of the great things about Barcelona is that most everything is within walking distance. But there’s also a really fantastic public transport system if you’d prefer. There are so many incredible things to do in Barcelona that I had a hard time narrowing them down for this list!

This past month, M and I have experienced a pretty big change, welcoming a new addition to our little family. We’ll call him Little Linguist for now. 😉 Before having kids, M and I spoke about our plans regarding language, particularly because we are a bilingual couple living in a monolingual country.

A Review of Eggbun | a Korean Language Learning App

These past few months I’ve hosted the Korean Language Challenge along with Lindsay Dow of Lindsay Does Languages, and it has been a wonderful language learning experience. It was the first time I’ve learnt another language with someone else, and it really did wonders for my motivation.

The Barcelona Cathedral | Things to Do In Barcelona, Spain

While going on our self-guided walking tour in Barcelona, we accidentally (and happily) stumbled across Catedral de la Santa Cruz y Santa Eulalia, Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia. Built between the 13th and 15th centuries, the Cathedral is dedicated to Eulalia of Barcelona, co-patron saint of Barcelona.
