The Absolute Best Way to Learn Foreign Languages…

Back in August I wrote about an undertaking Claude Cartaginese took on: The Polyglot Project: In Their Own Words. His idea was to compile a smorgasbord of language learning experiences. Claude put out a request for entries, and during a several month spread we’d get to read the new additions.

Just this week Claude announced the finished project. You can buy the book at amazon.com, or download it free from his post: The Absolute Best Way to Learn Foreign Languages.

Claude’s YouTube announcement is quite fun, so if you have the time…

If you are looking for a good resource to learn Thai online, check out Learn Thai from a White Guy. Upon entering your email, you'll get five free lessons to help you start learning to read Thai.

Generous contributors to the polyglot project…

Before I sign off, I thought I’d list those who gave time to this project. First off, editor Claude Cartaginese. Claude has put together an amazing product for the language learning community. Nice job Claude!

Next up are the YouTube polyglots, hyper-polyglots, linguists, language learners and language lovers… in alphabetical order (apologies for the lack of links but coding boogers drove me crazy for over an hour so… linkless):

  1. This is certainly an interesting project. It amazes me the people can come together and create such a great resource as this one and give it away for free. Thanks Catherine for putting this on my radar and congratulations to the authors for putting it together. I haven’t really got the time to become a polyglot, but if this gives me new motivation with Thai it will be worth a read.

    Maybe Benny can motivate me to want to learn Irish with my son đŸ™‚

  2. This video is quite entertaining, I will have to check out this free book. It seems like a good resource for learning a foreign language.

  3. Hi Benny, there might be more than you missing from that list. I fought with the code for over an hour, deleting bits here and there, then putting them back. I never did find the problem so all links were deleted. And as I’m rushing these days (Nov/Dec are totally insane), everything will have to wait for when I have more time.

  4. Sorry meant to say requires a “log in”. I was out late last night, not speaking English đŸ˜‰
