Why do I study German?

A while ago I made a video in German called “Warum Deutsch Studieren”. It was my uni assignment and a contest for the Goethe-Institut.

I even won some presents! A bag with Goethe-Institut’s logo, a notebook, a German magazine and a some tool for learning irregular verbs. So, I decided to post the video hear as well. Maybe it’ll motivate someone to learn German 🙂

My YouTube video fail

So, I have a YouTube channel. One thing that I like to make the most is language challenges. Well, obviously. The series is called “Trying to speak different languages”. I have around 10 videos of me speaking languages I’ve never spoken before. My most popular video has almost 80 000 views!

I do know that I’m not very good at all of them, but I think that my last video was when I proper failed. However I liked it because it turned out so funny!

Here it is – “Trying to speak Croatian”!

Inspiration for learning languages

Inspiration is important in everything you do and learning languages as well. It’s what will keep you going.

And today I want to post here something that inspires me to learn Spanish. It’s songs! I love to listen to Spanish songs. I think the language sounds so incredible.

Currently I’m enjoying “Tengo la camisa negra”. It’s not a new song, but I’ve never heard it before. And yeah, Julio Iglesias Jr is so stunning!

My book details

It’s time for me to give some details about my upcoming book “My keys to nailing any language”

So, The book is obviously still in the process and it has around 40 pages already! Every page has its own topic, but they all are still very coherent. However if you’re interested in something in particular – you can pick the page and read it. The book is full of great tips, tricks, and ideas that come rom my own experience in learning languages.

I don’t want to give too much away, so, here’s just a few topic from my book:

  • My secret to learning any language.
  • The most productive way to learn new words.
  • How to learn if you don’t have much time.
  • How to use social media to your advantage.

These are just 4 out of 40! Follow my blog so that you won’t miss the release!

 

Common MISTAKES even NATIVE SPEAKERS make!

While my book is still in the process I want to share my YouTube video on similar topic. This video is one of my favorites. I talk about mistakes that even native speakers make in the English language.

The sole purpose of this video is to encourage language learners to speak despite the fear of making mistakes, because everyone makes them, even native speakers! 

My book

So, I’m writing a book! It’s called “My keys to nailing any language” and the title pretty much sums it up.

Basically I’ve collected in it all my tips and tricks regarding learning languages. It’s 100% based on my own experience so you won’t find this exact information anywhere else. The book is focused on helping anyone learn whatever language he/she wants. I put my keys in there.

That’s what occupies my time right now. It’s something I’m very exited to share one day. There will be more information on this blog about the book. So, I’ll be glad to see you here!
