Hi folks,

There is something I'd like to ask from you italian and German people out there. I have some knowledge of the Italian and German languages, but the lack of practise is showing. I'd like to read stuff in both languages, just some minutes a day. And I thought blogs would be a good way to do it.

So, do you know of any Italian or German blogs that are of general interest and fun to read? French would do, too, although my knowledge of French is much more limited.

Thanks in advance.

Being Spanish I would have thought that German would be harder for you seeing it is not related like Spanish, Italian & French is ?

Unless you are not Spanish ?

Gre,

I cannot offer you any German blogs as I do not read any, but I can offer you the Linux section of one of the newspapers I read, it is in German :)

Well, I studied German for several years as a child and I have never studied French, yet I can't understand German all that good and with French I get things here and there... so yes, comparatively French is much easier alright.

Thanks for the tip, PartisanEntity... but I'm after something more off-topic, humorous stuff and the like. Linux news are too dense for me at the moment.

Hey, sorry to raise this again :)

I'm not looking for blogs *specifically* for language learning, but any blogs in these languages (you can add French, too) that are interesting and whose entries are easy too read and not too long. Maybe blogs about history, curiosities, interesting facts...

I'll give you some examples of the kind of blog I'm looking for, only these are in Spanish:

Ha! Bou, gotcha!

You wanted to be picked up on an error in your English! Just let me quote: "....are easy too read and not too long.... " One too many 'o's my friend, in this here situation.!

Apart from this most serious linguistic infraction, your English is indistinguishable from that in use anywhere throughout the world. (Except of course for German English, which is in a class of its own.) I'll happily dilate upon that elsewhere, bur only if asked.

Seriously, you non-native English speakers put us to shame the vast bulk of the time ( except for those rare times when you can be caught in error, YAY!)

Hope you do as well with your German as you do with your English.
