About This Class

This Course teaches you how to go about Learning Languages as an adult. You will learn how to find your purpose for learning a language, how to use this as motivation, how to maintain your drive, and how to identify what to learn, what to concentrate on, and how to measure your achievements and points to be improved upon. In short, everything you need for learning any new language!

Learn a New Language at Any Age!

One of the biggest fallacies in language learning today is the idea that only young kids can learn new languages, and that, once you've reached a certain age, you shouldn't even bother learning a new language. Unfortunately, many of us believe this because we've observed this first hand. We learned a language when we were young, or we know someone who grew up with more than one language, but when we try to learn a new language as adults, it seems to be a never-ending process with no improvement.

This Course demonstrates A) why this fallacy is incorrect and B) how you can learn a new language at any age!

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."

- Nelson Mandela
