Take the Te Amo Challenge

TeamoSo I’ve started to subscribe to a geo-newsletter sent out by our friends over at My Wonderful World and am discovering that they have neat challenges monthly that I DARE you to tackle!  Here’s this month’s, called Te Amo:

This month, we’re challenging you to learn new phrases in a foreign language.  Simple greetings like "hello," "goodbye," and "thank you" are a great way to step up your communication skills.  Here’s another idea:  Impress your friends, family and sweetheart by singing your valentine cards with an exotic rendition of "I love you."  After all, while the language of love is universal, it can be expressed through a myriad of melodic messages.

So pick one that’s music to your ears!  Here’s a short selection of language learning resources on the Web:

Looking forward to seeing what you learn!  Create a list of new phrases and their translations…and then we’ll post them here on The Blurb. 

Personally, I think it’s important to know how to say, "Where’s the bathroom?" in as many languages as possible, don’t you?

Signed,

Bam Bam Bigelow
