The Language Freak Summer Challenge is hosted here. It ends at the end of August, so I’m joining in somewhat late.
The goal is to read books in any foreign language you know, and review them in that language. A little bit about the languages I do speak: My mother tongue is Marathi, which is an Indian language. I also speak Hindi and of course, most books I read are in English. Neither of these counts as a ‘foreign language’. That language, for me, would be German; I’ve been learning it for four years, give or take. I have reviewed many German books on this blog, some of which I actually read in German too. But I’ve never really written a review in German, so this seems like a good chance to try that!
Of course, I can’t wait to read what other German reviewers write, either. The German books that I have lined up to read include one by Cornelia Funke and another by Joseph Roth. If you’re a foreign language learner, make sure to check out this challenge!
