Fun Ways to Learn a new language! // ¿Hablas español?”

Fun Ways to Learn a new language!
Hola que tal?! There are so many reasons why learning a second (or even third or fourth) language is fun and super useful! Maybe you're traveling to a foreign country and would like to feel more part of their culture and way of living, or maybe you have a friend with whom you want to have conversations with or for more practical reasons due to work. Just like with many things, when there's a will there's a way. I believe language learning isn't solely about the end goal, but it's about the process to get you there. Below I've listed a few fun ideas to learn Spanish, like for example with a language school like Global Spanish. Getting involved and listening, hearing, speaking the language a lot until you start to dream it aha! 😉 

Fun Ways to Learn a new language!


WATCH MOVIES WITH SUBTITLES 
A fun way to start with learning a new language is to just pick out any of your favorite movies or movies or series that are on top of your list, and then to add subtitles. You can do this in different ways. For example to watch the movie or series in your native language and then to add subtitles that are in Spanish, or any other language that you want to learn. Or you could pick something to watch, no matter whether it's a Spanish movie originally or series or not and then for example in Netflix change the audio to Spanish, and if you find that easier, also the subtitles in Spanish or in your native language. It's a great way to relax and not feel forced while learning a new language, while simultaneously also knowing a bit more about the rhythm of the language! Personally I love the Spanish series Velvet, definitely recommend!!

FOLLOW ONLINE SPANISH CLASSES
Besides watching something, following online Spanish classes with the innovative enterprise Global Spanish is also a great way to improve your Spanish! I think what really helps is to just get immersed into the language as much as possible and the three ways described in this post are definitely not stand alone from one another. Combining them will lead to faster success and more fun along the way! I recently came across the online platform called Global Spanish to receive 1:1 personalised lessons. It's really nice you can find a teacher and program that best fits your learning style and goals. The platform will also keep track of your progress so you'll be ensured of meeting them! 

What I find especially good with Global Spanish that all teachers are native speakers (definitely plus points ++) and that the first trial lesson is for free and all lessons are custom made. It's also very flexible so you can do it at anytime from anywhere and even you can request different Spanish teachers for diversity in your learning process. It's easy because you can reschedule as much as you want without losing a lesson and besides that, the platform has a conversation club to practice outside of your lessons as well as a wide-range of fun material, like audio-books, ebooks, podcasts and more! There's also a Facebook group with over sixteen thousand members to practice your Spanish with, so no worries about practising aha! Also, currently due to inflation, payments to teachers in Venezuela and Argentina can be made in crypto. So if you're into learning Spanish and no matter whether you already have basic knowledge or are a complete beginner, check out their website!

FIND A PEN PAL
Besides Global Spanish, the last but not least of the three ways to improve or learn a language in a fun way from scratch is to find a pen pal from a country or language you want to learn! Because what is more fun than sending and receiving paper letters! Nowadays everything is almost done electronically, so writing could actually be extra fun and you add a personal touch to it with a cute international stamp on the envelope. I have a friend from Australia where we usually send postcards with a small message to each other, especially during covid it was just the extra encouragement or motivation we both needed aha! To find a pen pal, you could for example join Facebook groups specifically geared towards that, or maybe ask acquaintances or write a message on your Instagram stories or TikTok!

I'm already at the end of this post, and I hope you enjoyed it! Thank a lot for stopping by! In the end, learning a new language should be fun most of all, because that's what's keeps you going! It's all about not focusing on one single way to learn a language, but instead combining them so you get really immersed in it! I'm secretly wanting to learn Spanish, so maybe I'll start with classes this summer with Global Spanish! Let me know in the comments below what language you would like to learn! And most of all, buena suerte!! If you want to know more about any Spanish classes, make sure to follow Global Spanish on Facebook and Instagram!

Cute and Colourful Must Haves for Spring 2022!

How are you doing?! Can you believe that it's already end of February and Spring is coming closer? I have to be honest that I'm not the biggest fan of winter weather aha.. So I'm really looking forward to those cold winter days to end and for the sun to shine! Spring coming closer means that it's almost time to start organising your closet and to find some cute clothing that will be great for Spring. I think what I like most about Spring is the flower fields, the colourful clothing, the longer daylight, and going shopping for new clothes which is a good excuse when the season ends;) Today I would love to show you some cute dresses and other accessories for Spring!

FLORAL DRESSES 

Maybe you're just like me and love wearing cute and colourful dresses for spring and summer! Usually I find buying clothes for these two seasons more fun, just because it's more cheerful and the clothes are just a lot more cute! I think one of my favorite patterns to wear in Spring and summer is floral. Newchic clothing is an online clothing store with lots of cute fashion accessories and clothing, like summer dresses, tops, shoes and more. I recently stumbled across their website and came across a few dresses in a floral pattern. The secret garden dress on the left I probably my favourite, mostly because it's with long sleeves, so when it's chilly (which can happen in the Netherlands a lot aha!), the long sleeves are great and you can also layer it with some sneakers or with heels to make it a bit more formal. Vrouwen jurken really are nice for both Spring and Summer! The other two dresses are nice for an evening out too, or even for going to the beach they're cute cover ups! 


OUTFIT INSPIRATION

I'm a big fan of jeans! Maybe you're like me and especially love ankle jeans or more boot cut jeans. For Spring as it's getting less cold it's finally possible to show a bit more skin. Something that you can wear in combination with jeans is for example a ruffled long-sleeved blouse. It's light and if it's a bit chilly in the evenins you can bring a cardigan along with you to keep you warm and cozy. It's even cute for a date night and looks cheerful and upbeat. If you're not that into jeans but would like something extra feminine, a jean skirt is also very cute. You can combine it as well with a shirt, like a long sleeve floral v-neck shirt. Especially with v-neck shirts I like that it shows a bit more skin so you can highlight for example a necklace, or something very minimalistic. 



ACCESORIES 

Outfits are of course not complete with accessories! One of my favorites are tiny backpacks! They come in all colors and are very easy to cary around. It still has the comfort and ease of a regular backpack, but of course you can carry it with you to fit in your makeup bag and necessary things on a more formal occasion without feeling underdressed. Especially the red backpack is very cute! It also comes in colors like yellow or baby blue if you prefer a different color. And also in soft pink! My other favourite is the crossbody bag in purple. Purple wouldn't necessarily be the color I would go for immediately, but sometimes it's good to get out of your comfort zone. The purse is waterproof and you can wear it either cross body or just by hand. 

Thank you very much for reading today's post! I hope you enjoyed it and start looking forward to Spring just as much as me! Let me know in the comments below what your favourite clothing item for Spring is! Would love to know your preferences! 💗
