The wonderful world of Rene Descartes


When I was 14 years old, I was sitting in a classroom listening to some teacher rambling on a Dutch past tense and somethign rather interesting caught my eye. There was this big poster saying “Corgito ergo sum”. I knew a little latin, but my attention was moslty caught by football at that time. Let’s be honest, it still is. It was a quote by the philosopher Rene Descartes and I knew nothing about the man, except that he sounds like someone who would make cards. 10 years later I would be confronted with the blessing that’s called philosophy and I finally got to know Descartes.  Bekijk bericht


My fascination for Cymraeg

Languages are actually great. It’s true that sometimes they give us difficulties, because there are so many of them. But I do think it’s great that there’s such a variety of languages on this globe we call planet earth. We learn about different languages in school and/or from our families and friends, but some languages are on another level. This is where I get really interested in languages and linguistics. When it’s out of the ordinary. I guess that’s why I’ve been and am so attracted to the Welsh language
Cymraeg. Bekijk bericht
