Hi there! In my previous post I introduced "Everyday Spanish! ", my blog about Spanish language and culture. This time I would like to introduce my other blog. It is called "Viviendo en Vietnam" or Living in Vietnam, in English. This blog is not just about my stay in Vietnam, but it also contains posts about language, culture, the way of thinking and living of its people, and the delicious food! And you can also use it to learn some Spanish, why not? I write weekly for this blog. Currently I am writing it in Spanish, and it is about some experiences that I have been having during my stay in Vietnam, and also some useful and "on-the-ground" information that may be useful for people who would like to come to Vietnam some day in the future. The website is http://viviendoenvietnam.blogspot.com . Again, most welcome to visit it! Thank you for reading and hope you have a great day ahead! See you soon!
Has travelling helped you in any way with your language learning? I don't mean going to some country to live there or study but just a short travel experience (from several days to several weeks). Have you already been in the native country of the language/languages you are interested in? If not, do you plan to go? As for me, I'm not a big time traveller. I've visited only a small handful of European countries - the Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Spain and Greece. Being, even a very short time, in the countries where people speak the languages I'm learning - French, Spanish, German, Dutch - has been very beneficial for me. However, not in terms of practice, because you can only get so much of that during a week or two (although still it's much better than none). It has given me a lot of motivation to further learn about the language and the culture. Also, it has been either a confidence booster (wow, they can really undestand me and I can understand them) or a kind of wake-up call (hmm, seems like there's a lot I don't get and a lot I need to work on). I've never been to an English-speaking country, and also, haven't been to Italy yet. I would really like to visit UK and Italy in the future. For now, I just don't have enough money for that but I hope to earn more in the future and be able to afford the trip. What about you?
