Clear The List | Monthly Language Learning Strategies Update | April

March was an incredible month. Not only did my most recent course with Fluent in 3 Months open, but Lindsay, Kerstin and I hosted the very first ever Women in Language event. And it was amazing. April has an entirely new set of milestones in store. A big one being the end of my second Add1Challenge and my intensive Japanese study.  What’s next?  Good question… Keep...

The Hoover Dam | A Day Trip from Las Vegas, Nevada

For the first time in my life, I stood in two states. Straddling the Arizona/Nevada border, I looked out at an incredible human construction, the Hoover Dam. I was driving back from Las Vegas after a performance, and decided to make a quick side trip. The Hoover Dam was only an hour out of the way and figured – why not?  I got out of...

Conversations Review | A Look at the Course Series from Olly Richards of I Will Teach You a Language

After studying Croatian, Japanese has been a big change. And not for the most obvious reasons. While the languages are very different in terms of vocabulary, grammar, and how far removed they are from my native language, none of these things are what made learning the languages difficult. With Croatian, one of my biggest challenges was finding resources, while with Japanese, there are plenty of...

Chinatown | Things to Do In & Around Singapore

Located within the Outram district in Singapore is Chinatown, or 牛车水 niú chē shuǐ, as it’s known to locals.  The Singapore Chinatown is made up of four distinct areas, each developed over different times between the 1820s – 1920s. They are Telok Ayer, Kreta Ayer, Bukit Pasoh, and Tanjong Pagar. Each has its own history and is inspiring to explore. Upon exiting the metro, you’re greeting...

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.

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.

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...
