Description

Discover How to Teach Yourself a Foreign Language This is a complete video manual with step-by-step instructions to show you how to create your own study program.

Develop all language skills (reading, writing, listening, grammar, pronunciation, culture and speaking) in any world language, without being in a classroom, in 4 months or less. Find out which learning materials to choose (or how create your own), which activities will give you the best results, in which order you should develop your skills, how to make the most of your time with a teacher or tutor, how to participate in free online learning communities using partner activities, and how to enlist strangers around you to accelerate your learning progress.

Have the freedom to choose your practice sessions Making your own schedule lets you meet all your other daily responsibilities. If you have a full-time job, a family to take care of, a rigorous school schedule or anything else that takes up most of your free time, you will be happy to find out that you still have time to learn a new language; and you can decide where and when to make your learning happen.

Move at your own pace Are you in a hurry to have command of a specific language? Then you can move through your program very fast by increasing the time you spend on each practice session. For example, if you want the fastest results choose either one long practice session each day, or three shorter ones. Do you have plenty of time? Then one shorter daily session will work just as well.

Why reinvent the wheel? The system explained to you in this course points out the tested techniques and methods, which are common to many successful language learners, who are now skilled in many different languages. The author has also tested them in her own classroom with excellent results and student satisfaction.

Develop a full skill set When we learn our first language we overlap skills during our practice. You are likely listening and speaking almost at the same time- or reading aloud with correct pronunciation, while learning new vocabulary. This video manual encourages you to create your own independent learning system addressing all skills, including pronunciation, listening, vocabulary, reading, grammar, writing, speaking, and cultural understanding.

Expertise Dr. Bogard has over 20 years of experience teaching foreign language students one-on-one in her physical classroom. Her students pass international exams, continue their foreign language studies in college, and use their skills to qualify for special programs, job opportunities, and to travel abroad. She has also earned her doctoral degree in Second Language Acquisition and Instructional Technology, and attends national conferences to stay current in the latest foreign language teaching methods and developments.

Bonus #1 At the end of this course, the author gives you a model syllabus with every step of your complete program outlined and ready for you to use as a template.

Bonus #2 If you prefer someone else to create your independent learning system, following all the step-by-step instructions in this program, use the coupon included in this class to enroll in the author's “Faster Fluency" online German course. If you don't know German today, you can be speaking, reading and writing it four months from now.

About the Author Dr. Eva Bogard has personally guided over 2,500 students in her physical classroom to acquire and improve their foreign language skills. She feels strongly about the importance of showing others how to be independent lifetime learners. With this goal in mind, she carefully designs very detailed step-by-step lessons leading students along a specific learning path that allows them to develop a complete skill set on the way to reaching their learning objective. Now she has done the same for you, her “Faster Fluency" student.
