A while back I found some interesting articles by and on a polyglot named ‘Luca’. His website http://thepolyglotdream.com/ has I think some useful information on language learning techniques.
I really liked his one video which is posted on youtube for which a link is found on his site above on how he broke up the stages of learning a language. I have found it to fit how finally I am going about it in that deliberate learning occures in the elmentary and intermidate phases.
I do find that the act of how to learn a language to be very confusing as to all the different ways people describe on websites, forums and such but as much as I tried to avoid studying ‘grammar’ it seems to be the only thing helping me make progress. I don’t think of grammar or try to go over when an author starts talking in complicated vocabulary and terms but simply try to get patterns and example sentences (with audio is always nice too).
Nice job Luca with your website. I have found it very helpful!
