Walkabout Action Guide -- Language Lore #009
June 28, 2012

We have exciting news this month. We've just finished the Walkabout Language Learning Action Guide which shows you step by step how to create your own language learning program.

The Action Guide shows you how to put all of your language learning efforts into practice, with this guide:

  • You control the vocabulary you learn.
  • You practice the skills you need.
  • You decide how much time to spend.
  • You tailor your study to meet your needs.
  • You learn at your own speed.
  • You assess your progress.
  • You decide when you've reached your level of mastery.
  • You follow step by step instructions to create your own language lessons.

Whether you are currently living abroad or at home, if you want to take your language learning to the next level, this book is the perfect place to start. We even outline the language learning mastery levels so that you can track your own progress.

Other highlights this month include Overcoming Shyness for Faster Language Learning. This article gives you practical tips to help you interact with more people.

Also check out this submission about Swedish culture. It tells about the Swedish celebration of Santa Lucia as well as Swedish love of nature. It is a message of light and hope.

Terry and Ann have just returned from their latest language learning journey. This time to Cuba! Look forward to new articles and ideas from them next month.

Last month, we told you about Owen Lee's Ultimate Language Secrets. It is still a great companion to Walkabout Language Learning. After you've built a solid base using the Walkabout Action Guide, this is a great next addition to your language learning library.

Leslie Woodford and Terry Marshall
