Anonymous asked: fun fact i really like being german because once i read a text in dutch and i didn't even notice at first
I recently took part in the UK Linguistics Olympiad, which is a competition to choose the national team for the International Linguistics Olympiad (see here for more info about that), and I was in the top 17 in the country!!!
That means I’m through to the next round in Liverpool which decides the 4 man team for this year’s Ioling competition!
So you know how every language has that word/phrase/sentence that native speakers can pronounce just fine, but foreigners can almost never pronounce it correctly? And the natives have a lot of fun telling the foreigners to try and say it and laughing at their attempts?
Some of them are ridiculous, I can’t stop reading this article.
I need more blogs to follow!
Like/reblog this if you post any of the following things, and I’ll most likely follow back :3
-Food (particularly pasta)
-Music (genre doesn’t matter)
-current events that do NOT involve Justin Bieber (seriously)
-random historical/science facts
-foreign language/linguistic things
-Anything else, because I need a variety!
