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.
