4 Unique Gifts for Language Lovers

I’m going to be taking German lessons again soon (in preparation for my trip to Europe this summer). As I was searching Pinterest for recommendations for German language books and flashcards, I stumbled on these. Cute, no?

Magnets Made from a Spanish Dictionary

If you can ignore the fact that “merde” means “shit” in French, the word looks and sounds romantic, no? And it’s written in pink, no less. 100 dollars on Etsy.com.

    I totally agree that flashcard is so useful for improving our language. I want to share my experience. I use Superflashcard app instead of paper flashcard and it helps me to find some my mistakes. I don't knoI totally agree that flashcard is so useful for improving our language.

    Reannon! I have been following your blog since your Japan days. I lived there myself for a year, in Himeji, andI wanted to give you a shout out for always having fun, interesting posts! I am considering learning Spanish but it seems like so so much work! How will you go about learning German?

    @Sarah - Oh my goodness! That's a loooooong time. Thanks for sticking with me. I studied German in college so it shouldn't be too hard to pick it up again. Maybe. I hope? Spanish is easy at first...but the more you learn of it the harder it gets. I want to learn Spanish again too. Siiiiiigh. I'm pretty lazy/busy though. I don't know if that'll happen any time soon.
