☄ - Would I defend a friend if they were in danger? I’m going to assume this is talking about physical danger, in which case I am a small person and probably can’t do as much as I would like, but I would try my best for the people that mean the most to me. 

♛ - Do I like group projects? If I say yes does that make me the slacker? Haha just kidding, I think with the right people they can be really fun.

高 - I use headphones/earbuds 99% of the time I’m on the computer.

My computer is fixed & I’m on spring break, so hopefully I can get more posts up soon! If you have requests, leave it in my ask box :) 

On another note, I just wanted to say that sometimes I am baffled at how much foreign languages have changed my life. My first Spanish teacher, whom I had for three years, was always telling us foreign language would help with our careers and that “she just fell in love with the language.”

I thought it was the dumbest thing ever, but obviously I ate my words :P I didn’t start loving Spanish until 2.5 years after first studying it, and after that my life changed so much, that without foreign languages, I feel like I would be a different person doing something completely different. Sometimes I imagine myself in an alternate universe, and I imagine my life wouldn’t be what it is today. 

Shout out to all the amazing people I have met through this blog and all the people I have met because I knew how to speak their language. I have definitely met some people that changed my life. 

I love how-language-changed-your-life stories, hahaha so I wanna know, how has language changed your life?

the-hogwarts-sexpress asked: Do you know of any Italian 1 textbooks I can download or get a pdf for free? It'd be a great help since I'm self-teaching

Sorry for taking such a long time to respond *—* 

I don’t study Italian but I’m sure there’s a lot of people who do. Does anyone know of any textbooks online? 

heythereconnor asked: Hello! What level are you at in Portuguese? I'm currently taking Spanish and I'm pretty conversational, but when I transfer to university, I'd like to take Portuguese too. I plan on majoring in Spanish (linguistics...or education...I'm not sure). My Spanish teacher recommended that I wait a few years until I start Portuguese as I might end up confusing them very much. Do you have any advice on this/can you tell me your own experience(s)?

Hey! 

I think my Portuguese is actually better than my Spanish, and I started Spanish first. I’d say both my Spanish and Portuguese are conversational, but writing wise in Portuguese I am much more fluid and natural (in my opinion), and I feel more comfortable. I taught myself Portuguese while learning Spanish in high school, so it’s doable. 

I’d say the easy parts are the vocabulary and the sentence structure, since they’re almost identical. But you might get some words mixed up because some are extremely similar but not exactly the same. Even I still kind of get confused. 
Example: 
Eu estava dormindo.
Yo estaba durmiendo. 
The verb in Spanish and Portuguese is “dormir” but for some reason when I have to write the gerund, I get confused between the two and have to rewrite it a few times before I get it right :P 

One of the hardest parts generally would be understanding/speaking because the accent is totally different. Portuguese has sounds that Spanish doesn’t, so getting used to hearing it and speaking it is kind of weird at first. However, when you get into the rhythm of speaking Portuguese, because of the difference, I would say you get less confused between the two while speaking it. 

I think it just depends, it’s harder for some people than it is for others, if you really want to, you should give it a shot. I think though, at some point you have to train your brain to work with the two. Sometimes I’m talking to someone from Brazil and someone from Argentina at the same time and that is such a mind trip, but somehow I manage. If you do find yourself confusing the two, you can always get back to it later. 

Hopefully this kind of helped! Good luck :) 

We watched this movie in Portuguese class today & I really really really liked it!If you’re looking for a really good film to watch in Portuguese, watch this one :) Hopefully you’ll enjoy it just as much as I did. Without subs if you want to test yourself, with subs if you want to watch a good film but don’t know Portuguese / are learning Portuguese / want  to understand what is actually going on.

kaylee4foreignlanguage asked: I don't know if you knew, but the Korean writing system is so easy to learn:) You may want to look into it since you love foreign languages:)

Hey ^^ 

I’ve heard the Korean writing system is very logical and makes sense, but I’ve never really been interested in learning Korean (no offense to anyone). Thanks though :)
