Let’s Explore the World Together Through Language & Travel


What Eurolinguiste is all about

Hey there – welcome to Eurolinguiste. My name is Shannon Kennedy and I am the language learner, adventurer, and gourmande (that’s French for foodie) behind the site. My goal here at Eurolinguiste is to help you get the most out of your language learning and traveling experiences by sharing my own. I write about my personal methods for learning a variety of languages, reviewing the tools I use, and updating readers on my progress.

I believe in working hard towards your goals and being transparent with successes and failures, which is what my posts here at Eurolinguiste are all about.

Additionally, I create posts sharing a little bit about the culture and history behind the languages I learn with travel posts, cultural cuisine recipes, and more. Thank you for your interest in my site!

Say Goodbye to Shy: Speaking a Language, the Introvert's Way | EurolinguisteI’m an Introvert and this is my Story

I am an introvert (and shy), and I’ve found that a lot of the language learning advice that’s out there seems to geared more towards extroverts. 

That’s why I’ve teamed up with the team over at Fluent in 3 Months to put together a guide to help language learners gain the confidence they need to gain confidence and achieve their goals. 

In the book, I share my personal story, the techniques that I use to learn languages as an introvert and so much more.
