The Ultimate Guide to the Latin Script

Daria's picture

If you're Russian, learning English as your first foreign language opens a whole new world of the Latin script for you. You can attempt at reading in virtually any language with a Latin-based writing system... or can you? Sogliole alla mugnaia, blanquette de veau, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, anyone? In my presentation, I'm going to talk about reading rules in some major European langues (such as the Romance and Germanic languages) and provide you with lots of opportunities to practice so that you learn to read once and for all and never make a fool of yourself again at a restaurant or elsewhere trying to read all these strange combinations.

If you're proficient in foreign languges using Latin Script besides English and you are willing to come, please contact me, I need your help!
