Language Links I LoveRead Now
A round up of the best language stories:
1. Polyglot Runs Into Another Polyglot And They Have A Casual Chat In 15 Languages
This video made me so happy. It's so much fun to meet another polyglot and to go back and forth with each other, speaking different languages. The best is when you can't remember something in one language so you use another language to describe it and your friend 'gets' it because you have that language in common too. Being able to communicate is the best feeling in the world. How many of the languages spoken here can you understand?
2. Six of Croatia's Can't-Miss Dishes
Even if you've never been to Croatia or had Croatian food, you have to check out the amazing looking photos of these savory meals! I cannot wait to be back in Croatia next month to have fresh fish on the Adriatic. I know my husband, Tomislav, is especially excited for Istrian Fuži (homemade pasta from Istria, Croatia) with truffles (tartufi). The ž in Croatian is pronounced like the sound in the middle of the English word "pleasure".
3. Why We Should Learn German by John le Carré
Was it love at first sound to you? :) To quote Charlemagne: “To have another language is to possess a second soul.” John le Carré notes that he might have added that to teach another language is to implant a second soul. It's more important now than ever to teach and spread understanding of German culture and life.
4. Croatia's First Underwater Winery Is Open to Visitors And you can take a dive to see it.
As one of the countries that drinks the most wine in the world, Croatia knows its vino. But now, the Balkan nation is taking it to the next level. Have you seen this underwater winery yet?
5. An American Speaking Polish About What He Loves About Poland
It takes a lot of courage to film (and POST) yourself speaking another language. It's such a humbling experience but it's incredible for you to hear yourself (and your progress) every once in a while! I absolutely love this video that my Dad sent me. The Foreign Citizen speaks excellent Polish and it's fun to listen to, especially during these difficult and controversial times.

My favorite post is back again! Such cool links, I love learning all the little secrets about the languages. That first link is absolutely incredible, I can't even imagine how those guys can speak more than 30 languages and it doesn't all mix in their head! And their accents are so spot on, even between Serbian and Croatian they make such a noticeable difference! A+
