TED Talk Thursday ~ How to Speed Up Language Learning

As a second language learner myself I find that the talk today expresses some very valid points. The points about learning by using the language, asking people how to say things and relaxing and learning by not being perfect are very relevant to me.  The more you try to use your new language the easier it is to learn.My thanks to my friend Kris, the master language learner over at The Panama Adventure for suggesting todayʹs video.

Chris has also established a distinctive and cohesive approach to education that gives people the means to learn language or complex understanding of processes in a short amount of time.

  1. I’m glad you found this interesting too. Six months though? I don’t think so, not for me anyway. For me what is working the best is study along with as much time as possible with my friends who don’t speak English.

      Well, I thought that was a pretty short amount of time to be “fluent”. If I can string enough words together to be understood I’m a happy gal. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
