It has been one week after the challenge started and I have taken four classes so far. It was a bit off schedule but hopefully, I can manage to do more classes on the following weeks.

My target language in this challenge is Portuguese, just general Portuguese, means that I do not specify the target for any certain kind of Portuguese (as what we have known, there are Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese from Portugal)

Guest Post: Lingotasic - My Language Teaching Journey



As a mum of three, I’ve brought my children up with an awareness of other languages, using point and name, playing, reading, singing, puzzles and DVDs. My husband is German, so we mostly did so in German and English, with a bit of French and Hebrew.

My youngest child started school last September and, as I thought about paid work, I wanted to combine my love of languages with my experience working with mums and toddlers that I’d gained through unpaid work.
