Language Learning Tips

Your phone is an invaluable resource in your language learning. I have a whole language section on my phone devoted to language learning apps. Most of them (especially flashcard/revision style apps like Anki or Memrise) are free and are a great way to fill dead time when waiting for friends or sat on the bus!

what a superb piece of advice. So much of our day ends up being wasted, for example during the morning commute, so using your phone to review vocabulary or grammar flashcards is a smart way to use your time.

6 Korean Olympians To Watch!
You know I can't WAIT for the Olympics so let's look at a few awesome Olympians representing South Korea :D PS: 올림픽 - oh-lim-pik! Ki Bo Bae - Archery A South Korean archer who was ranked the world’s number one archer in August 2015. She is the current World Championship and the defending Olympic champion in archery. An Chang Rim - Judo South Korea’s premier lightweight Judo champion and the nation’s representative in the 2016 summer olympics. He is currently ranked first in the world and seeded first in the Olympics. Kim Ji Yeon - Fencing A South Korean sabre fencer and the 2012 Olympic champion. Having started foil fencing at the age of 13, she is the first South Korean woman to win a gold medal in fencing in the Olympic games. Shin A Lam - Fencing A fencer whose 2012 duel sparked a huge controversy in the Olympic games after a timekeeping error gave her opponent a timing advantage. When South Korea immediately appealed the decision, Shin waited for over an hour on the duelling ground, in accordance to the fencing bylaws, while judges deliberated and eventually gave the win to Shin’s opponent. Son Yeon Jae - Rhythmic Gymnastics An individual rhythmic gymnast, dubbed the “National Fairy” of South Korea. She has won titles in the 2014 Asian Games, 2010 Asian Games, and 2014 World Championships. Calling it now: she's going to be the next Kim Yuna and have her face on EVERY advertisement lol! Park Tae Hwan - Swimming An Olympic swimmer who is the first South Korean to win an Olympic medal in swimming. He has competed and won medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and is to compete once more in the upcoming 2016 games. Who else is PUUUUUMPED for the Olympics?!
The Class of 2016: This Year's Funniest Graduation Caps
It's that time of year again - time for the senior classmen (and classwomen!) to say their goodbyes and celebrate their accomplishments as they finally receive their diplomas. Let's admit it. Graduation ceremonies, while understandably important, can get a little dull. There's a whole lot of speeches, a whole lot of sitting, and that obligatory watching-every-single-student-walk part. However, grads have gotten creative over the years, keeping things interesting with all sorts of gags - the simplest being the funny designs they put on their graduation caps! Graduation cap humor definitely reflects the times. Check out some of the funniest caps of the graduation season thus far, and then let me know: Are these SO 2016 or what?! "M-Morty, this is - belch - the first day of the r-rest of your life." Shout-out to all those cat ladies gettin' degrees to support their fur babies. Check out Sponge Bob Square Cap over here. This will forever be my favorite quote from 'The Office'. Because Lisa Simpson should be all of our education #goals. He-Man, you the real (heavily bedazzled) MVP. "I solemnly swear I am up to gettin' paid." You can practically hear the mic drop after reading this one. +1 BRIGHT FUTURE! So which one of these were your favorite? What would your graduation cap look like? Let me know in the comments below! (And for more cool and creative caps, check out @HairConfetti's Disney-Inspired Graduation Caps card too!)
Je T'aime! Crazy Romantic French Quotes
After I graduated from college with a degree in French literature, I lived in France for a year. I fell in love – with the language, the culture, the food, the little cafés, the wine... because how could you not? Many people love the sound of French. I think it's pretty, but more than anything, I just love the way things sounds when expressed in French. It seems more elegant, more romantic than English, non? Here are a few lovely French quotes about l'amour that I'm sure you'll want to stick right up on your wall. :) You'll find my translations below. I've come to steal a hundred million kisses from you. – Serge Gainsbourg I'll be a poet, and you, poetry. – François Coppée Love belongs to those who think about it. –Marcel Achard Life is full of little happinesses. – Unknown Love isn't just a feeling, it's also an art. Some simple word, a caution, a nothing reveals to a woman the grand and sublime artist that can touch her heart without piercing it. – Honoré de Balzac What is love? It's when you look at the other person and smile. – Agnès Desarthe We fall in love. And as always, when we fall, we get hurt. – François Weyergans This one seems like a compilation of several celebrated sayings about love: May my kisses be the words of love I don't say to you. We forgive to the extent that we love. I adore you. Between two hearts that love each other, there is no need for words. My love for you is as big as the world. You are the light of my life. (Literally "joy of my life," but that sounds weird in English...) You are my love. I love you. You are magnificent! – Various Authors My darling. Just a really cute, cutesy way of nicknaming your boy or girlfriend in France. :) You could also use this as a grandparent/parent to refer to your kid, or even to refer to a pet that you love a lot! <3 I love you more than chocolate mousse. – Unknown We only see well with our hearts. The essential is invisible to the eyes. – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry I hope you liked these beautiful quotes :) If you're a Francophile and want more, let me know! I also accept translation requests if you need help figuring out what a certain phrase means. :) Bon journée à tous! <3 xoxo
