You guys, I found out something really sad this weekend. A language blogger, Ron, who used to write the excellent Language Surfer blog, passed away earlier this year, in March. He’d stopped writing on his blog back in January because he was busy with a graduate program. I’d always hoped he’d come back to his blog eventually.
Ron and I corresponded by email about language learning and we followed each other on Twitter as well. I never met him in person, but he was always encouraging to all language learners. He spoke Arabic, German, Spanish, and probably even more languages I’m forgetting. I’m sure his blog was just one (small) part of his life, but I know a lot of us in the language learning community will miss his posts and enthusiasm.
