The Language Secret
How to Learn a Language
Or: How to Speak 10 Languages. Badly
Why are native English speakers so bad at learning languages? Why does that old joke sting so much?
Would you like to learn a foreign language? Have you perhaps already tried - and failed - to do so? Why is language learning so difficult? Is there a secret to mastering a foreign tongue?
As it happens there is. And the aim of The Language Secret is to share it with you.
In the course of our quest to learn another language, we shall be meeting a varied cast of characters, all of whom can help us discover part of The Language Secret. We shall encounter a depressive supercomputer, a Corsican adventurer, a Portuguese football manager, Nimrod the Hunter, an English chanteuse and an incompetent detective. We shall learn from all of them and uncover The Language Secret.
In the introduction to our forthcoming book, we shall be meeting and learning from the self-proclaimed “Special One”. You can read more about him here.
