Assessing Your Language Skills to Build a Better Learning Plan Using Those Assessments

I keep a language learning journal. Okay, yeah… It’s not really a journal. It’s just a notebook where I keep notes, questions, and interesting facts about the language I’m learning. But by the nature of the process that goes into creating it, it seems like so much more than just a notebook where I keep my notes. It’s very personal, very journal-y (-ish?). Taking notes...

6 Things I’d Love to Do in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We were only there for two full days, but if we ever make it back,...

This weekend we’re celebrating this big milestone, but for today, I’ve got my little one all to myself.  July was a whirlwind month. I wrapped up the launch of Language Learning Accelerator, started Get by in Croatian, dove into my Croatian, Russian and Japanese studies, said goodbye to my grandfather alongside family I...

Mount Gay Rum Barbados

Since leaving Ireland, I’ve become fascinated with visiting places where you can learn about, see, or experience the process that goes into creating something. It all started when I got the touristy experience in Ireland, taking friends or family down to Guinness or Jameson in Dublin when they visited. Seeing the history and process that went into creating their beers and whisky fascinated me. As...
