Adventure 31 ~ Introducing Inuktitut And The First Guest Adventurer!

It’s the last day of my first month of adventure and I’m really going for it today! You’ll see that there are 3 videos in today’s post : the first is my adventure for today ; the second is a review of what I’ve learned from my adventures so far; and the third is a submission from my first “guest adventurer”, David Orchard!

Today’s Adventure ~ I’ve really enjoyed my language-learning adventures and I wanted to stretch myself today. So guess what I’m going to do? (Okay, you’ll never guess. Not in a million years.  So I’ll tell you 😛 ) . Today I’m going to learn how to describe the parts of my head in Inuktitut. Inuktitut is the language spoken by the Inuit living in the eastern part of the Canadian Arctic. To make it even more exciting, I’m going to learn a specific dialect : Inuinnaqtun. This dialect is spoken in Qurluqtuq, Iqaluktuuttiaq and Ulukhaqtuq. I used a fabulous resource to help me with this adventure (and you can compare how I got on with the vocabulary resource there too 🙂 ).

What I’ve Learned From My Adventures So Far ~ I knew this project would be fun but I just didn’t realise how much I’d learn! I’m musing about my first month of adventures here :

January’s Guest Adventurer ~ David, who lives in France, really knows how to dive right into adventure 🙂 “For my job I am lucky to be able to travel to many different parts of the world and I have had many adventures along the way, notably in China and Colombia. But the idea of adventures on my doorstep intrigues me because often we miss the amazing things right in front of us. After reading “The Four Hour Body” by Tim Ferriss I knew I wanted to experiment with cold water. So this is the beginning something new. And my dog thinks it is great as well.”  You can follow more of David’s adventures here

I am just going outside and maybe some time.
