We’re losing a ridiculous amount of languages

This is extremely scary. We’re not only losing a ridiculous amount of languages, we’re losing a ridiculous amount of cultures….

all-distance-is-darkness asked: Your blog is amazing and really helps with all my languages, but please can you change the text formatting/layout so that there is more spacing between each line, as it makes it quite difficult to read. Otherwise, thank you very much for an amazing blog!

You are so very welcome! Thank you for your comments and advice, recently we have noticed a lot of similar questions about changing the layout/font and so we are currently in the process of working on our theme!

The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.

Yooo my country’s not in this list so here’s the suicide hotline for Indonesia: (+62)21-500454

Reblog this around!

Relevant or not, this is definitely an important post

There’s an app that teaches you how to write out letters in the Georgian alphabet.
It also teaches you how to pronounce them.

Getting this!

French colloquialism #1

bonjourfrench:

"ça a été?" = How did it go? / How was it?

Literally, it means “it was / has been”.

Ex: Alors, la soirée, ça a été? - So, how was your evening?

Alternatively, you could say:

  • "Comment était la soirée?" (How was your evening?)
  • "Tu as passé une bonne soirée?" (Did you have a good evening?)
  • "Comment ça s’est passé, la soirée?” (How did your evening go?)
  • ça s’est bien passé, la soirée?” (Did the evening go well?).

Ex: ça a été, ta journée? - Was your day ok? / Did you have a good day?

A common response to a question with “ça a été?” is :

Oui, ça a (bien) été. - Yes, it went well.

You could also say something like: Pas mal, oui. - Yes, not bad.
