And the award for world¿s longest book title goes to¿¿¿. Da-daaaaaa!!!! Alright, record setting title aside, this book is really useful in providing new and fresh ways to continue your foreign language education. I absolutely love expanding on my Spanish skills, but everyone gets stuck in a rut once in awhile. If you¿re like me, it¿s easy to get bored with the same exercises. Let¿s face it ¿ a lot of the teaching tools out there are fairly dry. The author, Barry Farber, essentially teaches you to build your own coursework by using different techniques that utilize flash cards, reading Spanish newspapers¿etc. He calls this approach the Multi-track attack. The thing I like most about his tips is that they allow you to be efficient in how and when you learn. For those who need a bit of encouragement, Faber also includes some inspirational material based on his own experiences in learning foreign languages. The only real knock that I have on this book is that it is too short. If you are using this book because Spanish is the language that you are interested in learning, then I recommend that you use this book with the Learning Spanish Like Crazy course. Combine the two with a good English to Spanish dictionary that you can use as a reference and you¿ll be off to a very strong start.

This book lays out everything that you'll need to start learning other languages. Difficult subjects are explained in simple terms and he explains there are no shortcuts to learning other languages. He does however give you some tips to learn languages an easy way at your own pace.

This book is wonderful if you want to learn a language, not only does it inspire you to get learning, but he tells of his experiences. His method definitely works. His ideas on starting with "the cake (or whatever metaphor he used)" before vegetables (grammer). I tried his theory and it came so much more easily! I was amazed! This book will brush away old fears put in place by your school-language-learning and have you speaking, and understanding, your "target language" in no time! So read it and start learning!!!!
