What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Friday, 19 January 2018


I browsed though the easiest Mandarin (or Taiwanese) kids book looking at the symbols. I thought first that they were derived from Japanese, but later realised that both bopomofo and katakana derive from Chinese characters.

I ended the day with a little each of German and Dutch (by Kindle). So I did a mix of ‘odd’ and ‘even’, basically.

I haven’t heard back yet from Stephen Krashen whom I twittered, asking why it is good to have a number of languages on the go at different stages. I’m sure that it is, but I’d just like to know his reasons.
