αβ, ongoing video project
The process of learning a new language poses both universal and idiosyncratic challenges. Almost everyone has experienced the struggle of creating new cognitive frameworks while assimilating a new language. The contexts and the reasons for learning one are also highly personal and diverse.
Leal learned Swedish in order to work in Sweden while Veileby started to learn Portuguese to be able to communicate with Leal’s family.
αβ looks at some of the shared links between Portuguese and Swedish, where many of the words found in both languages have commonality through Latin, Greek, English and French.
