Hello! Ciao! Bonjour!

Sam’s the name and language learning is my game.

For me, there’s nothing better than pouring over a good book, watching a film or playing video games in the languages I am learning, and I want to show you how easy, fun and rewarding it can be.

I’m an avid traveller and love sharing my adventures with you… the locations, the stories, and most importantly, the food!

  • 🇬🇧 Do you like listening to the radio? Do you want to find something instantly for the place you are dreaming of visiting? Me too!
That's why I downloaded Radio Garden. Simply press play and move the marker to a town or city in the country of your dreams and live radio will fill your ears. If you are lucky you will switch on the radio in Bari as they start playing the Birdie song... Yep! This is my life! 📻🎧🐥
.
🇮🇹 To piace ascoltare la radio? Vuoi trovare qualcosa immediatamente nel posto di cui stai sognando di visitare? Anche a me!
Questa è la ragione perché ho scaricato Radio Garden. Tocca play semplicemente e spostare il punto in un paese o città nel paese dei tuoi sogni ed ti riempirà le orecchie la radio in diretta. Se sei fortunato, sintonizzarti la radio di Bari appena inizia suonate the Birdie song... Sì! Questa è la mia vita! 📻🎧🐥

  • 🇬🇧 That moment when you open your valentine's card and realise she has written a message especially for you... Priceless! She knows me very well 🤗

🇮🇹 Quello momento quando apra la sua cartolina di San Valentino e rende conto che lei ha scritto un messaggio specialmente per te. Non ha un presso! Lei mi conosce bene 🤗

  • 🇬🇧 This week I am trying something new. I have an Italian checklist on my wall next to my desk where I write down interesting or new words which I want to use in my next Italian lesson and practice. That way I will increase my variety and flexibility in each conversation.
How do you choose the words you want to practice?
.
🇮🇹 Questa settimana provo una cosa nuova. Ho una lista di controllo italiana fissato al muro accanto alla mia scrivania dove noto le parole interessanti e nuovi che voglio usare nella prossima lezione italiana e praticare. In questo modo aumenterò la mia varietà e flessibilità in ogni conversazione.
Come scegli le parole che vuoi praticare?

🇬🇧 When you start learning a language it is really exciting and you feel really motivated. But over time you can lose motivation and often give up. We don't want that!
So here are my top tips for staying motivated and reaching your language goals.

  • 🇬🇧 My notes after a productive evening studying. I decided to research the different speaking expressions to extend my vocabulary. 
Stage 1 -> go through Harry Potter and note each expression around conversations in the first 50 pages and mark frequency.

Stage 2 -> Find the infinitive and translation for each expression.

Stage 3 -> Group the expressions by meaning or similarity and create a mnemonic with a little illustration to aid memory.

Now on to stage 4 -> Creating a page (or two) in my language journal to present the information in a clear way.

This process takes a lot of time but the quality is really high. I also absolutely love every minute of it. 
How do you make notes in your studies?

🇮🇹 I miei appunti dopo una serata produttiva di studio. Ho deciso di fare della ricerca alle espressioni diversi di parlare per allargare il mio vocabolario.

Fase 1 -> Leggo Harry Potter e notare ogni espressione attorno alle conversazioni nelle prime 50 pagine e notare la frequenza.

Fase 2 -> Cercare l'infinito e traduzione per ogni espressione.

Fase 3 -> Raggruppare le espressioni in base al significato o similarità e creare un mnemonico con una piccola illustrazione per aiutare con la memoria. 
Adesso avanti alla fase 4 -> Creare una pagina (o due) nel mio quaderno per presentare l'informazione in un modo chiaro.

Questo processo ci vuole molto tempo però la qualità è veramente alto. Ancora, Adoro ogni minuto di farlo.
Come fai appunti nei tuoi studi?

  • 🇬🇧 On an evening walk it is always nice to see a beautiful rainbow. When you feel a little low it's hard not to feel happy looking at something so marvelous.
Nature is great, isn't it? 🌈
.
🇮🇹 Quando faccio una passeggiata serale è carino sempre per vedere un arcobaleno bellissimo. Quando si sente un po' triste, è difficile per restare triste quando sta vedendo qualcosa così meraviglioso.
La natura è fantastico, non è vero? 🌈

Any German speakers want to help me out with the translation? 😉👍🏻

  • 🇬🇧 I am still working on these tricky pronouns. The double pronouns are twice as complicated. They switch positions, change spelling and join together in strange ways. I love it!
Frustration makes the solution even more important!!
.
🇮🇹 Lavoro ancora su questi pronomi difficili. I doppi pronomi sono due volte complicato. Scambiano la posizione, cambiare ortografia e unirci assieme in modo strano. Lo adoro!
La frustrazione fa più importante la soluzione!!
