If paying attention to our Facebook and Twitter channels over the past 14 days you will have noticed that we have been bouncing through a riot of colour and wonderful images celebrating some of things that we love about language, culture, people and the places to explore that truly ‘open up’ to us when we are able to communicate effectively in a new language.
Such diversity, from Spanish surrealism (hands up all those who thought Picasso to be French? And yes I did, despite the ‘obvious-after-the-fact Pablo’ clue!) to German architecture, Italian eateries, French gardens and to learning Welsh via a Straining tower (who knew such things existed let alone looking like this…) its been quite a journey already.
Along the way we have met new friends (you know who you are) and have helped a whole bunch of happy people to embark on their own Spring language learning journey.
We were especially thrilled to have helped a young lad to begin learning Portuguese in order that he could better chat with the new girl in his school class who doesn’t yet speak much English! *aww* A wonderful example of the true power of language learning and yet another reminder of why we love doing what we do here at Linkword.
We are of course incredibly proud of the academic learning and science upon which all our courses are built, without it three quarters of a million people, and counting… would not have been able to have quickly learned and remembered their new language. But. It really is all about what people do with their new communication skills that inspires us. We love to hear of what people are hoping to achieve with their new language and even better, to share in your success stories.
If you have been toying with the idea of learning a new language for some time or now have a pressing need to quickly absorb some new vocabulary and grammar in a hurry, then please get in touch and we will be delighted to help in any way we can!
Our favourite example from the past week is the young man who is travelling to Florence in May to meet and speak with a charming young lady he met in London recently – at which point he wasn’t able to speak a single word of Italian! We are all romantics at heart and are happy to report that he is already up to 400+ plus words and well on the way to completing level 2 Linkword! We hope to be receiving our Tuscan wedding invitations soon…
So, back to business, it is already day 15 of our ’30 days of language’ series. To take part, like, love, follow, retweet or in any other way have some fun with language and with Linkword then visit Facebook or Twitter and who knows what you might win and what new stories we will all have to tell!
