I’ve spent a decent amount of time reading about how people learn and methods of learning. Whatever you choose (and whatever I choose), I’m going to make sure to always been on the look out of how I can learn faster.
I think James Joyce spoke 8 languages in his early 20s?
My French is pretty decent. I spent a lot of time listening to the radio all day a work, looking through every single book I could find to see how they organized the material. I looked though other tapes, CDs, and available methods for learning languages. I look at all the software I could find too.I tried to think as much as possible in the language from the very beginning.
Books about accelerated and super learning also help a lot.
Time spent learning how to learn is well worth it.
