monday 19th april 2017 // today i am finally finishing my english language notes & i have never felt so accomplished. i have been using my b6 muji notebook for my notes and loving it. it makes me so happy to see all my notes together and complete. also i recently bought these new pastel stabilo highlighters & i can’t stop using them. they make everything look so aesthetic
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
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.

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.
13. what languages do you learn/want to learn? i’m currently learning Norwegian on my own and taking a french class at college.
18. are you a visual, auditory or kinesthetic learner? 100% Visual.
20. a book you’re reading for class: I’m not reading any literature books for class, but i’m reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland just for fun and also because I need to practice reading faster in English, i’m actually a Spanish speaker soo.
I kinda desapeared for like a week or so because I went to Cuzco (in Peru, yes, Machu Picchu is there) for the holidays and also have a looot of homework.
