About This Class

There are so many languages available to learn across the world and the decision to actually start learning a new language is a big move! Luckily, as long as you have a strong reason to learn another language, anything is possible.

This class assumes that you have little or no understanding of another language apart from your native language. You don't need to understand any language structures or anything technical - the best techniques that you can use to improve your skills are within this class.

After living in Spain for long periods of time as a native English speaker, I've picked up shortcuts and more efficient ways that you can use to speed up the process. In this class I share tips and tricks of how to learn the correct sections in the most effective order - so you can spend less time memorising words and more time diving straight into speaking and understanding another language.

In this class you will learn:

- The absolute first steps to take towards learning another language.

- How to make the language learning process more efficient.

- How to get good at learning basic phrases and fine tuning them to different situations within your life.

- How watching TV series and films can help the language learning process - even if you're starting as an absolute beginner.

- How to achieve a standard high enough to have a basic conversation in a foreign country where the language you want to learn is spoken (eg, in a taxi, supermarket, on the street etc). This takes less time that you might think.

- How to improve and maintain your language skills in the long term.

Class objective:

By the end of this class you'll know the best and most efficient approach to language learning. This can be applied to absolutely any language; as the structure and process remains the same. You'll understand that learning another language is very possible and the basics can be learnt within weeks; rather than months.

The techniques and tips within this class can be applied not only to a single language, but to multiple different language if you decide you want to learn additional languages in the future! It's your all-in-one toolkit to get started on your language learning journey!
