Language Summary

Happy Saturday everyone!!! I am very happy to share this video with you all — we have completed our journey of visiting several different languages and understanding their spelling rules and patterns as they have affected English. Thus far, from the creation of this site, we have covered 1245 minutes (20.75 hours) of learning. Wow! Thank you so much for all your support, encouragement, and donations to water.org — it all means a lot to me.

For the future, please be expecting more videos on other word-related realms. We will be covering some words I handpicked when I read the dictionary four years ago, some roots, and some vocabulary. Please stay tuned for this new and exciting series.

It’s been a wonderful ride with you all! I can’t wait to keep it going 🙂

Thank you!

Japanese I

Hello everyone! Hope everyone has had a restful and wonderful summer! I know many of you will go back to school this month…I have already started school this week. This week we will start a beautiful new language – Japanese! Japanese is a very symmetric, easy-to-follow language with consistent spelling rules and patterns. That’s why we love it! In this video, we will get an introduction to Japanese and take a look at ten sample words.

Greek I

Hello…Happy Saturday! This week we will start with one of the most influential languages for the English language: Greek! Greek and Latin together comprise 60% (6 out of 10 words!) of English! It’s pretty obvious that plenty of spelling bee words stem from Greek. Greek is also home to hundreds of root words and etymologies, that are commonly used in many words today. For example, in Greek, “chrono” means time; that’s where we get the words chronological, anachronism, and synchronize from. These roots are key to understanding the spellings of Greek words, so I would suggest getting familiar with these roots and then applying them to the videos. In this video, we will take a look at the history and significance of Greek, as well as ten sample words. Enjoy!

PLEASE do not forget to contribute to water.org! It’s my dream to help others through this fundraiser, and I would really appreciate if you took a little bit of your time to help this wonderful cause. ANY contribution is welcome! To donate, please click here.
