Toki Pona: The Language of Good

Image
I finally chose a new language to learn, and this time, it is a constructed language (conlang). Guess what? It is The Language of Good or Toki Pona. Surprising? Let me tell you why.

Before I decided to learn it, I have read a lot about Toki Pona because it is one of many popular conlangs.

Guest Post: How Language, Culture, and Crisis Interact

The relationship between language and culture is one that cannot be unpicked. Culture and language are so inextricably entwined that in order to fully understand each, one must have a grasp of the other.

How are language and culture related? The language that society speaks is part of its culture. Likewise, its culture is reflected in its language. The two have developed together over hundreds if not thousands of years, meaning that the language and culture relationship runs deep. Without language, human culture would be impossible to fully understand. Everything from individual words to figures of speech showcase the cultural connection between a society and its language.

Another year, another celebration. This time we had our Zamenhof Day celebrated at Pingtung Park on Sunday, December 22nd, 2019. Pingtung Park is located about a 10-15 minute walk away from Pingtung train station. It was held in a nice and cozy cafe that sells various delicious creative food, such as curry rice, pizza, and cakes. I ordered curry rice because, to be honest, that is my favorite!

Watch TV on YouTube

Watching TV in your target language is also one of many good ways to learn and improve your language skills. Some of you may have a satellite TV at home, and that's a great tool. If you don't have one, don't worry, as long as you have good internet, you also can watch foreign TV channels.

Book Publishing

I was always amazed by friends from the language communities who were able to publish their books. I could see so much effort, dedication, and knowledge put into writing the book. It is one of my dreams to publish a book, my own book. The purpose is to share with others because as they said, “sharing is caring”, isn’t it?
