What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
'How to Study Foreign Languages is the latest in the growing range of Macmillan Study Guides, and it will be useful for both students and tutors at any stage in the annual teaching and learning cycle. It spells out the whole process involved in acquiring a language and puts into perspective all those courses with names like Bulgarian made easy or Latvian without tears that make people think that there is little effort and no real challenge in becoming fluent in someone else's language...The book is useful, practical and insightful.' - Tim Connell, (Director of Language Studies, City University) Times Higher Education Supplement
