CNN cuts interview feed after refugee crime statistics are mentioned. They’re not even trying to hide their bias anymore.  

In honor of the new year, here is my simple tutorial for setting up and maintaining a language journal. I’ve made 3 so far using this method for spanish, french, and italian because it’s so simple. Disfruta y espero que logres sus metas de lengua este año! <3


What You’ll Need:

  • composition book
  • highlighters
  • flashcard(s)
  • black ink pen

Keep reading

I do not learn other languages so I can talk to more people or tell that I know the language. I learn so i can understand how other nations express themselves. Their feelings, their love, their ways of thinking. I don’t only get the chance to know words I didn’t know existed but I can discover feelings, noone understands in my native language. I feel like one can’t see the entire world unless they tried to learn a foreign language. The more you learn the clearer your vision gets.

# Counting 0 to 100 #

Just some notes about the numbers 0, 4, and 7:

Zero is れい (零)  but ゼロ or マル are more commonly used.

4 can be said as し or よん.
7 can be said as しち or なな.
Both ways are okay to use. But keep in mind, when you start combining numbers, the reading is almost always よん for 4 and なな for 7.

I’ve shown the kanji for each number first. You can really see a pattern after the number 10. 

# ━━━━━━━━━ #

0 れい or ゼロ or マル
1 一 (いち)  
2 二 (に)  
3 三 (さん)  
4 四 (よん or し)
5 五 (ご)  
6 六 (ろく)  
7 七 (なな or しち)  
8 八 (はち)  
9 九 (きゅう)  
10 十 (じゅう)  

Numbers 11 through 19:
Say “10, 5” for 15 or “10, 6” for 16, etc..

11 十一 (じゅういち)  
12 十二 (じゅうに)  
13 十三 (じゅうさん)  
14 十四 (じゅうよん)  
15 十五 (じゅうご)  
16 十六 (じゅうろく)  
17 十七 (じゅうなな)  
18 十八 (じゅうはち)  
19 十九 (じゅうきゅう)  

Numbers 20 through 90:
Say “3, 10” for 30 or “5, 10” for 50, etc..

20 二十 (にじゅう)  
30 三十 (さんじゅう)  
40 四十 (よんじゅう)  
50 五十 (ごじゅう)  
60 六十 (ろくじゅう)  
70 七十 (ななじゅう)  
80 八十 (はちじゅう)  
90 九十 (きゅうじゅう)  

100 百 (ひゃく)  

━━━━━━━━━ #

To make a number like 77, say “70, 7” as 七十七  (ななじゅうなな).
Here’s how you read the following numbers:

37 = 三十七 (さんじゅうなな)
92 = 九十二 (きゅうじゅうに)
24 = 二十四 (にじゅうよん)

Can you say?:

53 = ______
81 = ______
49 = ______

Not too bad, right? (。•́‿•̀。)

I’m reading Virginia Woolf in English for the first time! It’s such an accomplishment for me, guys (my native language is Spanish and reading literary texts in a different language is quite tricky) but the effort is just SO worth it. I’m in love with this author and every word she wrote.

I made a vocabulary list on my bullet journal to help me memorize the new words. Oh and I’m using the Linguee app, it’s such a useful tool.
