Is there are connection between Avatar and language learning? Well there may be two. First of all, someone spammed my youtube channel with an offer to download Avatar free of charge.This caused me to google Avatar to see what the movie is all about. It turns out to be some kind of ridiculous Hollywood fantasy about societies in outer space. Now that I know that, I will not go to see the movie. I may spend the time reading a book in a foreign language, or just studying German on LingQ, in preparation for a trip I have to make, not to outer space, but to Vienna, in February.
