So how did such a hopeless monoglot end up multilingual? How did he discover The Language Secret?
His book will show you how to learn not just one language, but any language - several at the same time, if you wish.
Like most English schoolchildren, our author never learned the grammar of his own language. In fact, he was not absolutely sure what grammar was. Even though he was at a grammar school. Strange.
In keeping with the grandest traditions of “Call My Bluff”, however, our hero somehow ended up teaching English in Paris to graduates of the École nationale d’administration, where many presidents of France were educated. Now living in Germany, he and his wife specialise in teaching accelerated language-learning techniques. They share their secrets with you in this book.
The fifteen years spent as a linguist in various African countries produced a fascination with the phenomenon of multilingualism. Most people in the Sub-Saharan region speak at least three languages. How can that be, with such limited access to formal education? Learning and producing grammar books and dictionaries in various Bantu languages provided part of the answer.
