Sketchnoting a Foreign Language

Are you interested in learning a foreign language?

How about visual note-taking, is that your thing too?

If so then I’ve got the perfect course for you: Learn a New Language with Sketchnotes.

I’ve been experimenting all year with different ways of merging language learning and visual note-taking, and I share all of those experiments with you in this new course.

Check out the video above for a sample lesson, as well as the recap below.

A few scenes from an episode of Marseille on Netflix (plus a diagram showing terms for family relationships).

These are from a book of short stories. Some of these I’d consider simple icons, but others fall more into the scene category.
