The wish to speak and understand a foreign language resembles the wish to play a musical instrument: it is a dream which is fervently desired and rarely achieved.
I have studied eight foreign languages: Spanish, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Arabic, Polish and Chinese. I have been fluent in all of them, and at present, I am fluent in five. As I have been a life-long learner, I have collected many different approaches, study strategies and review tactics to make learning effective and amusing.
An insider view of a foreign culture is a remarkable reward that I have enjoyed, language after language, culture after culture! Please enjoy the contents of this page, and contact me if you would like help in implementing your own adventure.
