Read this blog ! Practice your English! Come on ( venga ya)!. No deadlines (fechas tope). No exams. It's just a fun way to learn the language. 

Are you bilingual, trilingual, a polyglot?

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Published 15 October 2013

Multilingual people have more opportunities. They know what's going on around them in more places than their monolingual and bilingual counterparts. Where do you fit in? Only in your hometown, or are you comfortable conversing with others around the world?


Spanish, English, Italian and French are the most popular languages on campus this year. However we talked to a lot of people who also spoke German, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Swedish, and Russian to name a few.

And what languages do you speak? The person who sends in a comment and can prove he/she speaks the most languages will win a prize. No, not a big prize, but a prize nonetheless.-Wendy

Vocabulary:

Polyglot: multilingüe
fit in: encajar
hometown: pueblo natal
world: mundo
languages: idiomas
prove: probar
prize: premio
nonetheless: sin embargo

I think people who can speak a few language have an advantage. I speak spanish and a bit of English. I think my English is fluid but I should improve it if I want to work in USA or UK. Nowadays an important idiom is Chinese but I think it is too difficult and I don´t like it.

Hi Wendy In my first trip abroad i discovered that learn new languages give many chance. However You need study every days and practice when you have a new opportunity.

Hi Wendy. I would love to be able to speak several languages, but at the moment only I can speak English a little, not perfect but try! Also the development of the communication areas of the brain are much more developed in people who speak several languages. I feel envy!Good bye!

Speaking different idioms it's important and will help you in the future. I'm bilingual, I speak spanish and english, a little of french but not enough to talk to other people who speak french. A idiom that I think it's good and that I like to speach it's italian. Probably I have to go to class of italian or go to Italy. See you soon!
