Why 95% of self-study second language learners can't master it?
AND WHY YOU CAN'T TOO...
It's because they and you...
* don't understand the essence of language skills acquisition process (and don't build a foundational skill set before entering new language)
* don't know how different language contacts impact the brain (and "secret" sequence that moves you on 3 language skills simultaneously with 1 piece of content)
* over complicate the process by mixing different activities (and don't have critical level of focus to get continuous improvements)
* follow the old-school style of learning by grammar and vocabulary (so you can't see the forest for the trees)
HI! I'M DIMA SICHKAR! A foreign language enthusiast whose main goal is to learn foreign languages and teach others how to learn foreign languages in the most natural and effective manner.
When I started out, I didn't have a clue about learning languages. I'm not "natural" or "gifted" with languages. And I don't consider myself a particularly dedicated learner.
Here's what changed things...
> I figured language is a practical skill
> I figured language is about collaboration and co-creation.
> It's about meeting interesting people.
> It's about discovering new worlds.
> It's the accumulation of shared meaning - of common ground.
It is impossible to teach you a foreign language. You must teach yourself.
