Doors & Doorways in Singapore

Whenever I travel, I find that the things I photograph the most are architecture and doors. I never really considered myself much of an architechture buff, but when I look back at my photos, I find that I’m apparently much more interested in it than I realized.  It’s amazing what we humans can create. And there’s just something about how the creative and practical aspects...

100+ Useful Conversational Words & Phrases in Japanese

Are you thinking about learning Japanese but find yourself struggling to find resources that help you start speaking? When I started out, I certainly did. Many of the tools that I found when I started learning Japanese were grammar-heavy textbook style resources and they didn’t offer me a lot in terms of day-to-day conversation. Rather than learning how to say “what did you do last...

Clear The List | Monthly Language Learning Strategies Update | March

This month, there is something happening that I’m so excited about. It’s… Women in Language.  I’m over the moon about it because:  It’s the first time I’ve ever organized a language event and the experience has been amazing. I’ve been able to chat and plan with two of my language besties (Lindsay Williams and Kerstin Cable) the last few months. It showcases more than 25...

Join Me at Women in Language: A New Online Event for People Passionate About Languages

As a musician, I’m used to being in circumstances where I’m the only girl. While there are more and more female musicians entering the ranks, it’s still pretty unusual. In a way, this has become “normal” for me. When I entered the language learning space and many of the well-known figures and speakers were men, it didn’t strike me as unusual. But much like in...

Gardens by the Bay | Things to Do In & Around Singapore

One of the most awe-inspiring adventures I had in Singapore was my trip to the Gardens by the Bay. Particularly upon entering the Cloud Forest, a cooled dome conservatory with an incredible design. The Gardens by the Bay spans 250 acres of reclaimed land near the Marina Reservoir and serves to enhance life with added gardens and greenery around the city. The area is currently...

Doing More in Your Language Studies with Less | Another Look at Minimalist Language Learning

This past year has been a year of simplifying. Of creating better processes for my studies and my work. And of decluttering my physical and mental spaces. It’s worked quite well for me, but there was one realm I avoided. The digital. Visualizing just how many physical objects you’re dealing with is easy. You can take all of your books off your shelves and pile...

A Spin Around Singapore in the Singapore Flyer

When visiting Singapore, there are two structures that stand out – the Marina Bay Sands hotel and the Singapore Flyer. Both offer breathtaking views of the city, and both are, on their own, amazing sights. At 541 feet, the Singapore Flyer was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, until the High Roller in Las Vegas snuck in at 550 feet. The Singapore Flyer took...

The Ultimate Guide to Japanese Writing Systems: Learning to Read Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji

I know what you’re thinking. Japanese has three – sometimes four – writing systems. Where do you start? As I shared in one of my earlier Clear the List posts, I recently took on what I think will be my last language – Japanese. I wanted to do things differently this time, so I decided to take a conversational approach to the language, meaning I’d focus...

14 Things to Do at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore

From Marina Bay in Singapore, there’s one building in particular that catches the eyes of visitors – the Marina Bay Sands. Three buildings connected by a ship-shaped pool and dining area at the top, this hotel is often #1 on visitors lists when they visit the city.  But the gorgeous infinity pool and exotic drinks aren’t the only reasons to visit the hotel. Here are...

Learning Japanese Hiragana and Katakana: A Workbook for Self Study

I’m no stranger to learning new writing systems. And while taking on another system gets easier after you’ve done it once or twice, the practice still needs to happen. There are no shortcuts to learning a language. Even though the work still needs to be done, doesn’t mean that you can’t have a little fun along the way. An important part of taking on a...
