Journals

When learning a language, people tend to focus on listening and speaking, and maybe reading too. Writing is overlooked in most cases.

But writing in your target language has many benefits:

➜ Unlike reading and listening, writing is an active skill. When you write, you are producing your own words.

➜ Making active use of the language helps your brain better remember what you’re learning.

➜ Writing helps you improve your grammar and vocabulary.

➜ All of this helps you prepare for speaking. 

That’s why I created this collection of journals.

✔︎ Designed specifically for pilgrims undertaking the Camino.

✔︎ They offer a unique opportunity to practice your Spanish as you record your journey.

 All journals include:

  • Intro, in both English and Spanish, with suggestions on how best to use the journal.
  • Prompts to help you reflect on the experience, before, during and after the Camino.
  • Pre-Camino: plan your stages, finalise your packing list, keep track of your to-do list.
  • Blank writing space.
  • Inspirational quotes.
  • 6×9″, a good size to fit in your backpack.
