The site also has a blog. I've only read three posts, but I really love it. Great community-building environment full of good tips and stories and motivations. This post in particular, "My Personal Top 10 Language Learning Tips," is stellar in highlighting the various means by which language learning can take different techniques to exercise the brain and get those synapses firing. In the posted comments of this little essay, someone mentions writing in your new language, especially in a potentially vulnerable public blog platform. In my mind, writing is the other side of the coin to reading, as working out biceps is to triceps. I've been looking for some guidance in this area, and have decided to incorporate more multilingual posts on this blog.
I'm not sure what they will be about, but I will be developing my German, Spanish (Jessica and I are working on it together this summer), French, and later Russian and Gaelic to such an extent that I can write posts on a variety of subjects. It's a little ambitious, but I am very excited about the idea and the freedom inherent in it. If you know any of the languages that I write in, please feel free to give me a little feedback!
