"How to Learn Any Language" by Barry Farber – 5 Stars!!!

(brought over from my previous language blog)

I bought this book yesterday on the bargain aisle at Barnes & Noble and I finished it today. What a wonderful read on language learning! I feel so much better about my love of languages and cultures after feeling the same emotions jump from the pages of Farber’s vivid writing. His story is also inspirational, with his outline of how he came to learn most of his languages.

After Farber’s book, I’m now brushing up on some French grammar (with my “Correct your French Blunders” book), learning basic pronunciation, and adding cards to my flashcard program (Anki). After I get a good base, I’ll try his newspaper paragraph method of learning words and use my iPhone to have my flashcards with me all the time.

So far so good!
