Read My Lips -- Also calling all bloggers -- Language Lore Ezine -- Issue 005
January 24, 2012
Just a little tidbit this month. I read a recent article about how babies learn to speak. It explained that they start looking at the speakers lips at around six months. It gave me an idea that perhaps as adults we too could improve our language study by focusing on native speakers lips. Read more about this tip here.
Do you blog? My friend, Aaron Myers is working on a project to have a number of bloggers write about their language learning experiences. He is especially interested in "mommy bloggers." If you blog and would be willing to help out, contact me here.
Last month, I announced our three free gifts. If you haven't picked them up, yet, then you are in for a treat. Take advantage of these free resources: an audio download: How to overcome the obstacles of fear, embarrassment, and anxiety; a video: How to Sound like a local; and a special report: Take Your Language to the Next Level. Click on free gifts to download them today.
We are working on the Walkabout Language Learning Action Guide. It should be ready soon. If you enjoy the tips that you've gotten on this website, you'll love this guide. It will take you step by step through creating your first dialog. It is packed with study tips, suggestions about how to find a mentor, and real life stories about language learners just like you. Watch your mailbox; we'll let you know when it is ready.
