St Patrick’s for St Patrick’s


, , , , , , ,

In honour of St Patrick’s day I wanted to post some photos of St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin that I had taken while I was living in Ireland. I went to Dublin on several occasions; these particular photos are from a trip I made with my mom. Enjoy and Happy St Patrick’s Day!

An Introduction Sociolinguistics and its Importance in Language Learning


, , ,

A while back I wrote a guest post on I Want 2 Speak Thai, but the site is no longer up. I asked Travis if I could republish the article I wrote for him and he agreed, so you can now read my post on Sociolinguistics over at Eurolinguiste.

French Animal Sounds


, , , ,

Here is one of the posts that I promised a while back in my article on onomatopoeic French expressions, animal sounds! I know that a few of you mentioned them in the comments on the last post and I stated that I intended to do write it. I must admit that it has been sitting in “drafts” since I wrote that previous post (I wrote them both at the same time).

// Original Post in 2012 //

If you were wondering – if you weren’t please feel free to skip down to the animal sounds – the reason that it took me so long to finally hit “publish” on this post is that I’m in a bit of a pickle (hopefully I’m using this expression correctly). I love writing about language and being Eurolinguiste, but I’m finding that music is beginning to take back that place it once had in my life and Sksaxgirl is taking over.

I don’t feel like my posts about language such as this one have a place over at the other blog, but I also don’t want to bombard all of you with my concert/album/music promoting and constant discussion of music things. At the same time, however, I’m beginning to have a hard time managing both. Basically what it all comes down to is the need for your input. What would you do in my situation? Any advice would be immensely appreciated!

// Update 2014 //

I decided to keep my two blogs separate. You can read about my music stuff here and my language stuff here.
