Rooftop Bars in Barcelona, Spain | Eurolinguiste

After visiting Le Printemps, a rooftop café in the heart of Paris, France, a new travel obsession began for me. The search began. Paris couldn’t be the only city with incredible rooftop views. When we started planning our trip to Barcelona, one of the first things I researched were rooftop cafés and restaurants. Lo and behold, we had more than enough to keep us busy,...

Russian Step-by-Step | A Language Course Book Review

As I announced a short time back, I recently began studying Russian. Of course, even though I started out ready and equipped myself with my Top 8 Resources, but I’m always on the lookout for new materials, especially those created by companies that specialize in particular languages. I had seen Russian Step-by-Step on various social media channels, so when they contacted me, I was familiar...

How to Make (Almost) Any Language Learning Resource Work for You

Today I’d like to talk about something that we’ve all probably experienced as language learners. A lot of us – but not all – have the tendency to be resource collectors. We have hundreds of bookmarks in dozens of language learning books, but we have yet to actually work our way from cover to cover in any one of them. I’m certainly guilty of this, and...

The Best View of Paris | Le Printemps

I don’t quite remember where I heard about it from, but on my last trip to Paris, France, my sister took me to a place with the best view of Paris. And the most awesome thing about it? It’s totally gratuit. (Don’t worry, I have a glossary of French words used in this post at the bottom of the article!) And despite the great price and...

Interlinear Books Review| A Dual Language Book

I discovered my first dual language book while at FNAC in France quite a few years ago. It was before language learning became something that I actively pursued, but I cherished that book. In fact, it still has a place on my bookshelf right above my desk. It was a French-English version of Sherlock Holmes that offered a side-by-side translation of the text. (And you...

An Ode to the French Countryside

An Ode to the French Countryside

I have a great love for the French paysage. I have fond memories of hours on trains watching les petits villages, small towns and Robin Hood-esque forests pass by my window. For those who visit France, but still want to experience Paris, you don’t have to drive far to visit the French countryside, but it’s worth considering some of the country’s other départements to get the full experience...
