I want to be able to speak a few languages (other than English) to a level of B1 or above – and maintain them at this level (more or less) while of course doing all the other things that matter in life.
These are Italian, French, Spanish, Croatian and a secret language.
I also like to play with others depending on time/ potential holiday destinations/likelihood of use.
Why pick a level of B1?
It’s a good level to chit-chat, communicate and have fun while at the same time being achievable within a reasonable time-frame.
Goals for 2022:
My goals chop and change and are currently :-
to improve my Italian for a month or two.
to improve my Croatian. This will be my main focus for 2022. Probably.
to improve my Secret Language;)
French, Italian, Croatian and Spanish
I have reached B1 or above in these although my French accent literally can (and has) made French speakers wince – c’est la vie;)
My Secret Language
I’ll talk about this at some point … but for the moment it gives me a much needed air of mystery.
I dabble in Latin – especially during the winter months, and continue to do so on a very ad hoc;) basis
Besos, Baci & Pax.
