Monday, September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD) and the Saddle Brook Blog has some tips to help you sound like a pro in no time (well, you’ve got approximately two weeks to get it down). We’ll start with vocabulary and go from there.

We think you will find it very helpful in gaining the appropriate vocabulary, especially the phrases section.
