Today whilst stumbling around on You Tube I discovered a series of videos on language learning by Lingosteve, a Canadian man who loves learning languages so much he founded LingQ, an online language learning site.
He has recently made three videos on what he terms the Language Learning Tripod – the three things you need to have to effectively learn a language. They are Attitude, Time and Noticing (or paying attention). Whilst I don’t agree with every single point he makes, overall I found these three videos extremely motivating and thought that those of you who are also in the midst of learning a language might also appreciate a boost in motivation.
I recommend watching Lingosteve’s other You Tube videos as they are extremely informative and cover a whole range of issues about language learning. They are certainly helping me feel less stupid and overwhelmed by the whole process.
