An Introduction to the Eurodictionary

When my blog was over on WordPress.com, I had a section called the “Eurodictionary.” It’s moved here with the rest of my content to Eurolinguiste.com, but I have yet to write about what, exactly, the Eurodictionary is for those of you who have recently joined me. I live in a bilingual household and so there is a lot of code-switching that goes on (the shift...

Mythology had a brief introduction to Norse Mythology, and I had a better understanding of the characters in the movie as a result of reading the book...

How I Became Eurolinguiste | A Post in French

Bon, voilà quoi – j’ai enfin décidé d’écrire un article en français. Je discute souvent des langues et des façons de définir le bilinguisme, mais je ne l’ai jamais fait dans une langue autre que l’anglais. J’espère donc que vous apprécierez mon histoire sur comment je suis devenu Eurolinguiste. Quand j’avais onze ans, j’ai commencé à apprendre ma deuxième langue. En fait, c’était ma troisième...
