Overview

Usually, books about learning languages are written by enthusiasts who have learnt loads of languages. These amazing people are empowered to steam ahead due to their innate interest and pride with their subject.

In contrast, the author of this book is not a linguist. He doesn't wake up thinking about what language he can conquer today. He’s perfectly satisfied with a tea and toast and to knock out 500 words in a language he feels more at home in.

Whereas in almost every other language learning circumstance, ‘not being keen’ is a disadvantage, with this book it has been of great importance.

This book is written by someone who, much like yourself, isn't a fanatic. He didn't write a thesis on the subject, he doesn't have a degree or even an ‘A’ level in any foreign language. His only qualification before writing this book was a CSE grade 4 in Spanish which, ironically, he’s quite proud about. Nevertheless, by using the tricks and techniques in these pages, Ian learnt to speak a new language in less than six months.

Uniquely, this is a book about language learning written for non-linguists by a non-linguist. He hopes you notice, appreciate and enjoy the difference.
