The Ultimate Language Learning Guide

Course Preview



Learning a new language is the best way to immerse yourself in a culture. But, most language learning tools focus strictly on rules, obscure vocabulary and situations that you will never encounter. In this course, Johnny Harris and Nathaniel Drew teach a language learning method that is practical, science-based, and optimized for actual speaking. This method rejects the traditional form of language learning and instead prioritizes the most effective, useful elements of a language so you can start speaking sooner. This course will help you mentally reframe the process of language learning, and introduce you to a new mindset that will help you as you start (or restart) your language learning journey. Johnny and Nathaniel dive into their distinct learning styles so you can customize your language journey. Throw out everything you learned in high school and start new with a different way of acquiring a language. This course also has a suite of language learning resources including a master startup list of essential vocabulary.
