The wandering Kari

The Karilogue, LLC blog…

Welcome to Karilogue.com, where the goal is to both entertain and inform. Kari tackles her experiences with a mix of her sense of adventure and her sense of dread; she’s always sure that the current adventure will be the death of her.  This blog was started in Germany, where Kari lived for 4 years as an ex-pat, and it continues now in the United States.

Kari has traveled quite a bit in her lifetime, but Germany was the first country where she was unable to communicate right off the bat, even as a multilingual. She arrived in fall of 2012 with about 5 words of German under her belt. Although one of them–Bratwurst–proved valuable, having a lot of blanks and nothing to fill them with was a daunting challenge. This gave her a new appreciation for those learning English as a Foreign Language after moving to the United States, which prompted her to put her Master’s in Linguistics and prior TESOL experience to good use.
