What’s that? We have an Instagram page dedicated to all things MLC?! Why didn’t we say so before? Well we honestly don’t know but we’re telling you now!

We showcase our beautiful city and merge it with our love for languages and cultures. You will also discover our favourite cultural spots and best places to visit, and more importantly eat, in our city.

Did you know that #Basque which is spoken in the Pyrenees mountains has no relation to any known language? It’s also one of the most difficult languages to learn 🤓 . . We hope that you are keeping nice and warm despite #stormciara . If you’re looking for a treat to eat whilst you study or watch your next Netflix binge then inject some culture into your cuisine and try the Basque staple of #pinchos ! Whether you are #veggie #pesci #vegan or none of the above there’s definitely a pincho for you. @thewoksoflife has a post all about them so you can get some ideas and try them out for yourself! . . #myhlc #language #languagelearning #liverpooluni #liverpool #uniofliverpool #universityofliverpool #livuni #livoriginal #culture #food #foodie #foodstagram #photography #photooftheday #photographer #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography

Our untranslatable word of the day is.........aspaldiko! This #basque word is used to describe the joy of meeting up with someone that you haven’t seen in a long time. How cute! We know how great it feels when this happens, so why not get your aspaldiko on and meet up with someone you haven’t seen in a while? Visit the Liverpool Mountain in the docks if you’re stuck for something to do. Check up on each other and make sure you’re okay. Seize the day! . . . . . #myhlc #language #languagelearning #languages #culture #uniofliverpool #universityofliverpool #university #student #study #liverpool #livoriginal #livuni #liverpoolcity #photography #photooftheday #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography
