Description

How To Teach Yourself Any Language

This course is all about using unorthodox and otherwise "informal" methods to learn a language quickly. The philosophy behind this course's methods is that a language is a social tool before anything else. Before you study grammar tables, before you recite all of those boring verb conjugations, you should be able to use the language as a tool for social communication.

The methods taught in this course are very straightforward, and can be applied to any language. 

A mixture of video and text lectures are included in this course, and examples are provided after each theory is explained.

Why should you take this course? Well, learning a new language is like obtaining a new soul. If you want to have the power to see the world in a different way, if you want to make amazing friends from across the world, this course can give you that ability.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you're the type of person that likes to achieve things in an unorthodox way, then this course is for you. My course teaches you how to learn any language quickly by ignoring "formal" aspects such as grammar in the beginning. Language is a social tool, and as such you should be able to have fun by speaking it as quickly as possible! My course is for the student that wants to choose a language, speak it with people, and learn the boring stuff later on.

My passion is teaching and inspiring people through online courses!

Every course I make stems from my own passions in life - I guarantee if you enroll in any of my courses, you will be filled with genuine knowledge and appreciation for the subject.

My main course topic is language learning, I believe that anyone and everyone should learn at least one foreign language. The problem is that the language learning process has been mystified by commercial language programs. My goal is to demystify the process, and teach people the easy, straightforward path to learning a new language.
