My Favorite Travel & Language Learning Tips This Month Language Resources / Travel

Last month I did my first travel & language learning tips roundup and asked if you wanted me to continue sharing my favorite travel and language posts. The answer was a resounding “yes” and so today I’d like to share my favorite articles for the month of March.

Here is this month’s collection of resources for language learning and travel from around the web.

Language Learning Tips

  • These French Pickup Lines from Transparent Languages // Yes, they’re cheesy but that’s what makes them so fun.
  • Flashcards from Antosch & Lin // I get daily emails with new vocabulary in a variety of languages from Antosch & Lin. The greatest part is that they not only give you new words on a daily basis, but they also give you sentences in which the words are used. It’s a really great resource.
  • What the World Will Speak in 2115 // I discovered this interesting article via Wikitongues and it was a really interesting read. I definitely recommend checking out their theories on language 100 years from now.
  • Marie’s Dictionary // This video is just so incredible. Marie’s story and her desire to preserve her language, Wukchumni, is beyond admirable. I teared up the moment I pressed play. Just watch it. Trust me.
  • WaiChinese // I discovered this app through a group on Facebook and now I’m obsessed. Mandarin tones are something that I struggle with and this app is geared towards helping you with just that. The app is web-based and mobile and it analyzing your voice for the correct pitches/tones. You then submit a recording to your own coach who sends email corrections. Soooo helpful.

Travel Photos & Tips

  • Jumping Off the Stratosphere from Esther of Local Adventurer // Esther is so brave! I don’t think I’d be able to do this, but for those of you a bit more daring than I, this looks like it could be a ton of fun.
  • Tokyo’s Top Cafés from Iron Lady Chef // These cafés are so on my list if I make it to Tokyo. Especially the flower market tea house.
  • Night Photography Tips and Tricks from Living in Another Language // This is definitely something I need to work on. I plan on studying this before my next trip!
  • How to Cope with Being Sick While You Travel from Travelettes // Definitely a post worth keeping for the worst case scenario.
  • 20 Things to Do on Your Trip to Iceland from Unlocking Kiki // I am not planning on going to Iceland anytime soon, but these sound like fun things to do if you’re heading out.

  • I loved this, again. Especially the French pick-up lines. 🙂

    • Hi Melinda! I’m glad you enjoyed this post. Some of the French pick-up lines were pretty hilarious!

  • Aww thanks for sharing our post! 🙂 I did not feel very brave.. but it ended up being a lot of fun in the end! My parents and my grandma is here and it’s making me realize i need to brush up on my korean.. it’s gotten so bad. I’m sure I would enjoy the french pickup lines books. do they do a series for all languages? haha i used to love this japanese street slang book i had back in high school.

    • There is a series of books that have phrases and vocabulary along those lines. These two series tend to be really popular – I have one for Japanese and the other for German. Here are the links for the Korean books:
      1. Making Out in Korean http://amzn.to/1GHGOee
      2. Dirty Korean http://amzn.to/1bmDKui

      • haha awesome! I am going to check those out.. might have to try the kindle version since we keep moving though.. but it’s so much easier with a language book if you can flip through it easilly!

        • It is much easier! I also am guilty of making notes in my books. Good luck on your upcoming move!

  • Thanks for sharing these resources, Shannon! I enjoyed the video about Mary’s Dictionary and now I’m practicing Japanese with the flashcards from Antosch & Lin for the first time.

    • I love Antosch & Lin’s daily emails! Make sure you sign up for them if you haven’t already. It’s a nice, quick way to get new vocabulary and sentences sent to your inbox. Marie’s Dictionary is an incredible story!

      • I’m receiving them. And some of the sentences I got in them are really useful. Thank you!
