What do languages mean to me?

by Florence Gomez

It was during a tear filled eleven-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris that I realised I would be happier living abroad for the rest of my life. This was my epiphany moment after having spent nine months studying the English language at Mills College, CA (EF school) and living with an African American host family. So, what do languages mean to me? In short, a way to reinvent yourself. How?

Año Nuevo, ¿lugar nuevo?

By Serena Sawyer and translated by Serena Sawyer

Enero - La Navidad ha terminado y estamos de vuelta al trabajo. Para la mayoría de nosotros, puede ser un mes miserable, con el tercer lunes etiquetado como “Blue Monday" o “el lunes más triste del año" por razones obvias. Para animarnos, miles de nosotros reservamos en Año Nuevo nuestras escapadas de verano, anhelando unos días más soleados.


La reacción de la prensa española al anuncio del Príncipe Harry y Meghan Markle

By Miranda Sandy and translated by Anna Assens Gonzalez

Solo 12 países en Europa –alrededor de un cuarto de los países– mantienen aún una monarquía, España incluida. Por lo tanto es interesante comparar la opinión de la prensa española sobre los recientes acontecimientos alrededor de la soberanía inglesa con la del resto del mundo. En un país con otra familia real, ¿hay más compasión hacia las personas que viven sus vidas a la vista de todos sin elección?


L’Alba di un nuovo decennio: dagli occhi di una studentessa Erasmus

By Harriet Lord

Per molti di noi studenti universitari, la transizione verso il 2020 segna il primo memorabile inizio di un nuovo decennio. Certo, se ci provo posso ricordare l'inizio del 2010, ma a soli 11 anni per me non aveva alcun significato. Ora, dieci anni dopo, a metà del mio anno di studio all'estero, in Italia, vorrei fermarmi un momento per valutare cosa significa il nuovo decennio per me e per gli altri.


A Christmas message from the Editor


Hello All!


I'd like to welcome you all to the 10th edition of The Language Exepress magazine. I think that this edition is the perfect way to round off the year with some fascinating articles ranging from learning advice, very valuable to those doing January exams, to Christmas experiences in France. This edition is special in many ways and the most notable reason being that some of the articles have been translated into English to allow for a parallel text structure. The thought behind this is that you will be able to profit more from the language-learning experience and gives an opportunity for translators to practise their skills. I cannot thank  our teaching assistants enough who have worked hard translating these articles and of course our contributors, without whom our editions would look very bare. Thank you all for your help this year. On that note, I wish you all a very merry Christmas and the best of luck in the New Year.


Best wishes,

The FLC Team x
