Slovenian word of the day
If you’re interested in learning Slovenian, you may want to check Slovenian word of the day, my small personal project. Once per week—yeah, the original once-per-day idea turned out to be a bit too ambitious—I write a blog post in which I discuss a random Slovenian word. With the project I wish to fill the gap in the teaching resources of Slovenian language. I focus on learners who already know the basics and want to move to the next level. An important feature of my blog posts are audio recordings of Slovenian sentences. The site also has a collection of links to other resources.
Gugi in Wonderland (children's book)
Small, furry creatures live on Earth unbeknownst to humans. That is, until one of the creatures by the name of Gugi decides to show herself and explore The Netherlands. Through a number of short stories we follow Gugi on her journey.
I wrote the book together with Sarah Brands, half seriously and half as a joke, for my friends. We self-published the book in 2019 and only five copies exist. I attach a cover and one of the stories as an example. This was a slightly crazy, but surprisingly enjoyable project.
