What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Sunday, 26 November 2017


I was reminded to have a single language activity going for each language.

I got a bunch of kids books in Dutch from the orphans’ thrift shop. They were about frogs—kikkers—and mice—muizen. I read one of them to Sachi. I simply translated the story into English while pointing out a similar word here and there. Then I read the story our again, this time incorporating a bit of Dutch.

“Hey!” I thought. This is a little like what I’m doing when I replace phrases of a English text with Spanish. (Which I haven’t done for a while.)
