Language Mastery

This outstanding blog by John Fotheringham provides language learning advice, guidance, tips and strategies. Fotheringham is of the belief that languages cannot actually be taught. Fluency is dependent on actively listening, speaking, reading and writing a language. The blog articles are thoughtful and comprehensive, packed with lots of useful information. Previous topics have included a look at the habits of highly successful language learners, reviews of language products and the obstacles that prevent people from becoming fluent. Some of the posts include John’s podcast interviews with other language bloggers, teachers, polyglots and linguists.
