Language Linkfest: July 2015

What a month! Summer is always one of my favourite times of the year, and this year too the month of July did not disappoint.

I spent half of the month travelling through Europe, seeing my family and working from a little house in Sweden. The train tickets to make all this possible were a complete bargain, and you can read here how to buy the cheapest European tickets.

Now let's get into that summer mood and give you some good stuff to read, listen to and watch.
