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).

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 //
Check out the list of animal sounds here.
It’s 2014 which means that my Project 365 is officially over and it’s time to start a new project. This year my goal is to read 20 foreign language and/or music business books and write 50 songs. So far I’ve written two songs and read one book. You can check out my progress here.
We recently had a guest post from Sam Brinson on how music can help you learn a foreign language. Music and language learning are my two passions and I love anything that can connect the two. You can check out the article here.
Now that I live in California, there is one thing I am no longer able to do that I greatly miss – Breton dance.
Brittany, the area where Breton dance originates, is the north-western peninsula of France, made up of five different départements or what one might call a county in English. If you want to know more about the region, feel free to ask me or Google it!
