This is the second part about Finnish pronunciation! I’ve been going slowly through this chapter because I believe pronunciation is important, and I never really took the time to get it right when I was studying other languages (I always learnt from books, so it was easy to just excel in reading and writing and ignore the other skills).

Since I actually haven’t been on in a while, I almost forgot to mention anything about it, but I have an account on Lyrics Translate where I do small translations of songs. It’s a very helpful website if you’re looking for translations of foreign language songs.

After a much overdue time, I’ve finally put together a video from my trip to Mexico! I had so many amazing experiences in this place and I can’t wait to go back in the future. It was such an enriching and magical experience.
I’ll make some more detailed posts about my trip and Mexico, but for now please enjoy the video! n__n
