Language at the Winter Olympics

Meredith Cicerchia's insight:

Experience the Olympics in a Second Language through Lingua.ly

 As the games are covered by most learners' first language media sources, they also offer an opportunity for learning from parallel texts/sources. If you watch a competition in English and then find a Spanish article summarizing it, you get more of a real world language learning experience because you have some context, even if you're just using digital tools to study Spanish from home.  People learn better when language is interesting to them and Olympic broadcasts are not only engaging but are offered in multiple languages.  Get started by looking over some facts about the games in Lingua.ly’s Winter Olympics Infographic in English.
