About this site

Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in a new language? It’s easy to feel like you’re in over your head and don’t know where to start. A lot of times, when you look at other people who already speak the language you’re trying to learn, it seems like they picked it up by magic. We’re here to show you that that’s not the case. Language acquisition is the product of time, focus, and determination. When you really lean into the process, learning a language changes you.

The purpose of this site is to show you that it’s possible, at any age, to learn a new language well, even one you think is really difficult. It will show you that there are real, practical techniques that can help you maximize your study time without burning out. You’ll learn strategies like deliberate practice and how to respond when you face discouragement and fatigue. And throughout the site, you’ll find examples of people like you who have been through the same process: young and old, experienced and inexperienced language learners.

Our hope is that by giving you tools and helping you develop an awareness of your own capabilities, your language learning journey can become not only more productive but exhilarating. You can do it!

You can use this site in many ways. It can help orient you as your language learning journey begins and it can help encourage you along the way. It’s also a hub where you can find your way to several other language-learning resources available on the web so you can find the tools you need to be successful. And if you think of content you’d like us to add to the site, please reach out to us on our Contact page and let us know!

So where should you start? Part of that will depend on your language learning background and on your goals, but if you’d like a few ideas about how to begin, check out our article on getting started.
