Before you lie two pills. A blue one and a red one.
Take the blue pill, and you will end up spending way too much money on useless apps, softwares, and textbooks. To be fair though, you might become an expert at conjugation patterns and other obscure grammar rules. But you will get nowhere in terms of communication.
Take the blue pill, and you will end up wasting so much time on activities that don’t matter. Like memorizing verb conjugations, using boring flashcards, or listening to slow and robotized recordings.
Or you can go for the red pill. And discover how to learn any language, on your own, for free, with music and videos.
Take the red pill, and you will be able to flirt in Croatian with this cute blond girl or guy on a Croatian beach.
I want to be honest with you. There are no shortcuts. There are no hacks. Learning a foreign language is hard. It takes time and dedication. You will meet lady frustration and sir give-up-a-lot at some point or another. But there are right ways to learn a language. And this blog is here to show you how to do it the right way. While enjoying the process.
And no, you don’t have to be a child to become fluent in a foreign language. And no, you don’t need to spend 10 years living abroad to learn another language. I met people who spent a year abroad and didn’t learn a word. And I met people who have never left their country and speak 6 languages fluently. You are a grown-up, you have a brain, and you have Wi-Fi. That’s all you need to make it happen.
The key to learn a foreign language is to create an immersion environment. You can go abroad, and meet people. You can stay at home, and use your laptop. There are several ways to create one. And none of them should make you break the bank.
This blog will guide you along the path towards fluency. It’s going to show you exactly how you can do it on your own.
This blog will give you a step-by-step method, with free tools and resources. You will discover how to train your ear and how to create an immersion environment with audio and repetition. All of this without spending a dime. You too will become a singing polyglot. You too will become a language athlete.
All you need is some basic theory, and a lot of practice! Learn some, and then focus on actually absorbing a foreign language.
I’m writing this blog because this is the blog I was looking for when I started learning languages.
This blog is your red pill. Welcome to the other side.
