September 15th, 2021 | A small bet

Made a bet with a friend of mine from Milan.

One his birthday I will call him and we will talk in Italian.

I can already speak and express myself. But I sound like a fucking 5 year old.

Language is a creative process. Almost like engineering. You are engineering sentences and trying to build something.

For example, with 10 nouns, 10 verbs and 10 adjectives you can say 1000 different things.

I eat food. I go there. I want a break. I like Jiu Jitsu.

With just 30 words you can start talking.

I've been studying the 1000 most common words for a while now, while theoretically cover over 80% of every day language.

Good little life hack for learning a new language.
