Dilemma! Learn a "Useful" Language, or the Language that GRABS You?

► Learn a language with a native speaker today: http://go.italki.com/1Ojye8x (italki voucher) "What language should I learn?" is one of the most common questions learners ask about languages. Choosing what language to study can be a tough choice, especially if you are interested in languages that are somewhat "niche" rather than major global languages like Spanish, etc. In this video I explain why I think you should follow your passion rather than your logic, and study the language that grabs you most -- even if it`s not widely spoken.

Stephen Krashen on Language Learning in the Polyglot Community

Sign Up For Your Free Email Listening Course! And discover the secret to understanding native speakers in any language, at any speed... http://learn.iwillteachyoualanguage.com/yt-optin-listening Dr. Stephen Krashen is one of the most influential figures in the field of second-language acquisition (SLA), and has made a major contribution to the way we now think about language teaching and learning. I was delighted to get the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Krashen in Montreal to discuss a range of topics, in particular the extent to which his theories of language acquisition can be observed in the learning techniques of polyglots - people who learn multiple language. In this fascinating interview, you'll hear about: • Krashen’s background with music, and the relationship between music and language learning • Do language teachers have an obligation to learn languages themselves? • The languages that Krashen speaks himself • The role of “comprehensible input” in language learning • What does he think of the polyglot community? • What’s the one language mystery that Krashen would like to see solved?
